This recipe originally aired on Martha Stewart in January 2007. The cinnamon swirl is more sugary, so it sets up a little more moist than the main batter.
Recipe type: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Serves: 10 servings
  • 1 cup garbanzo fava bean flour (it's a flour blend of garbanzo bean and fava bean flours)
  • ½ cup potato starch
  • ¼ cup arrowroot starch
  • 1 cup + ¼ cup unrefined sugar, divided
  • 2 tablespoons ground cinnamon, divided
  • 2¼ teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup hot water
  • ½ cup oil, plus additional for brushing
  • ⅓ cup store-bought unsweetened applesauce
  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F and grease a 7x4-inch loaf pan.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, starches, 1 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon, baking powder, salt, xanthan gum, and baking soda, salt, xanthan gum.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the hot water, ½ cup oil, and applesauce. Add to the flour mixture, and stir until combined.
  4. Remove ⅓ cup of the batter to a small bowl. Pour the remaining batter into your prepared loaf pan. Stir the remaining ¼ cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon into the reserved batter. Add it to the loaf pan and it into the main batter.
  5. Baker for 20 minutes. Brush the top of the loaf with oil and continue baking until golden brown, about 15 minutes. Let the loaf cool completely on a wire rack before carefully removing it from the pan.
