- 3/4 cup almond flour
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar substitute
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
For the glaze:
- 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon of reserved tea from instructions.

To make the cake:
- Place the teabags in the hot water and steep for 5 minutes. Remove the teabag and reserve liquid.
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 9.5 inch angel food cake pan or 8” spring form pan with butter.
- Place the melted butter, eggs, vanilla extract, pumpkin, and 1/4 cup of brewed tea (the other 1/4 cup of tea is for the glaze) in a blender and blend until smooth.
- Combine the almond flour, coconut flour, sweetener, xanthan gum, salt, baking powder, and cinnamon in a large bowl and whisk together until blended.
- Pour the blended wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, using a rubber spatula to scrape it all out of the blender.
- Stir until the batter is mostly smooth.
- Transfer the batter to the greased pan and spread out evenly.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes, then remove from the oven.
To make the streusel layer:
- Combine the streusel ingredients in a small bowl and mix well.
- Crumble with your fingers into pea sized pieces and scatter evenly over the partially baked cake, pressing in lightly.
- Return to the oven for 20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out mostly clean.
- Remove from the oven and cool on a wire rack for at least one hour before unfolding.
To make the glaze:
- Combine the chai and powdered erythritol in a small bowl and whisk until smooth.
- Remove the cooled cake carefully from the pan and place on a serving plate.
- Drizzle the icing over the cake and serve.
