This is yet another one of my wacky cravings from the recesses of my brain.  I’m always amazed when these recipes come out so well.  It was best fresh from the oven yesterday, but it’s not bad as leftovers for breakfast today.

This recipe could easily be doubled and baked in a 9×13″ pan.

GFDF Peanut Butter Spice Cake

1/4 cup organic palm shortening
3/4 cup organic light brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup Maranatha organic no-stir creamy peanut butter (includes palm shortening, sugar, and salt)
1 organic egg
1/2 teaspoon organic GF vanilla extract
3/8 cup organic brown rice flour
3/8 cup sorghum flour
3/8 cup organic millet flour
3/8 cup organic tapioca starch
3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum
1/2 teaspoon organic ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon organic ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon organic ground nutmeg
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup organic rice milk
2 teaspoons organic powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

In a large bowl, mix together the shortening, brown sugar, peanut butter, egg, and vanilla extract.  In a small bowl, mix together flours, starch, xanthan gum, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, baking powder, and salt.  Add the dry ingredients from the small bowl to the large bowl, and gently stir.  Mix in the rice milk to create a thick cake batter.  Scoop into an oiled 8×8” pan and spread to even out the batter.  Bake for 30 to 35 minutes at 350F.

Cool.  Sift powdered sugar over the top before serving.
