Preheat the oven to 180°C. Line a 7x7 baking square pan with greased parchment paper.

Sieve all the flour and combine with the dry ingre-dients. Set aside.

Combine the wet ingredients. Stir together the oil, butter, honey, and vanilla. (For best results, use a stand mixer.) Add the almond milk and mix well.

Slowly, add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. When dry ingredients mix well, it’s ready for baking.

Bake the cake for about 30-35 minutes. (The edges may grow dark, since baked goods made with honey darken more easily.)
