Citrus Pear Hemp Cake


  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons hulled hemp seeds (can also add whole hemp seeds for extra crunch)
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons spelt flour
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil or any heat safe oil
  • CAKE:
  • 2 cups chopped pears
  • 1/2 cups raisins
  • 1 1/4 cups honey
  • 1/3 cup olive oil or any heat safe oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons lemon rind
  • 2 teaspoons orange rind
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups spelt flour
  • 1/4 cup hemp flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup milk or alternative milk


For the topping: Combine all the ingredients to form a crumbly mixture. Set aside. For the cake: Beat together all wet ingredients including citrus rind. In a separate bowl, stir together the remaining dry ingredients. Add wet to dry until just moistened. Prepare a 10 inch glass baking dish by coating with a thin layer of olive oil or any heat safe oil and pour one half of the batter in. Layer the fruit and cover with the remaining batter. Sprinkle the topping mixture evenly over the cake. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 to 50 minutes or until evenly browned and baked in the middle.
