  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Prepare a 9x13 inch baking pan with cooking spray. Whisk together the whole wheat flour, soy flour, cinnamon, ground cloves, baking soda, tapioca starch, and salt in a bowl until blended; set aside.
  2. Pour the hot water into a mixing bowl, and sprinkle with the flax meal. Stir for a minute until the flax begins to absorb the water, and the mixture slightly thickens. Stir in the brown sugar and vanilla until the sugar has dissolved, then add the currants, carrots, and almonds. Stir in the dry mixture until just moistened, then pour into the prepared pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Cool in the pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool completely on a wire rack.

Like the other reviewer, this was way too sweet. 1 cup of brown sugar was perfectly fine, even for sweet-tooth kids. Also too much baking soda - we got an aftertaste. Will try half the soda and ...

I used white flour since that's what I had on hand. I also cut the sugar in half, replaced the cloves with nutmeg, and currants with raisins. I didn't add any of the other optional ingredients. ...

This is a very good recipe! I didn't have all of the ingredients so I made a few substitutions. -Out of cloves, tried pumpkin pie spice -No soy flour, I tried oatmeal for fun -Out of almon...

I made this cake with the 4 tsp. of baking soda and it feels heavy in the stomach. I'd add only half of it. Otherwise it's delicious!

A tablespoon of ground cloves is FAR too much! And 4 teaspoons of baking soda?? This is a bitter, inedible cake.

I used honey instead of sugar and nutmeg instead of cloves and the taste was really good. Although I had to bake my cake for an hour..
