I’ve been kind of dreading making granola cake since I first got Baking Chez Moi. For some reason it just didn’t seem very appetizing. So glad my fears were completely misplaced for this one.This recipe had a bit more ingredients than usual with the strangest being granola. Fortunately I had recently made a batch of Garland’s granola from Sharing the Table. It is so, so good and simple to make.I tried to break up the biggest clumps in my granola and I used the unsweetened coconut flakes you can get at Sprouts. I love the unsweetened flakes, they have a great taste without the scratchy texture of sugared and shredded coconut.Everything came together pretty quick and I was starting to feel hopeful about the taste because everything smelled so good. My batter was the consistency of a chocolate chip cookie dough.I was pretty nervous after getting this into the pan because I really had to spatula the batter into the pan rather than pour it.I took the cake out before the timer went off because it just smelled ready to me. It kind of looked like a giant cookie in the pan.The cake came out of the pan looking a lot more like a cake or maybe kind of like a bar. I had it with some early gray tea and the cake was so good. Dense and chewy texture with great flavor. Almost like a brownie in a way. This recipe will definitely go into my rotation for when I have some homemade granola hanging around.
