Non-Chocolate Cake & Zatar/Za'tar

Request Number One

I'm looking for a delectable cake recipe that non-vegans can appreciate. It's for a colleague's birthday. This colleague doesn't like chocolate. So, I'm looking for something that's a bit different but not plain, but not too out there either. (I work with finicky people.) Unfortunately, I'm a little broke at the moment, so I'm hoping to just use what I have on hand. Which excludes carrots and lemons, so no carrot or lemon cakes.

I have almonds, anise seed, oranges, peaches and apples. Cinnamon, vanilla, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, etc. And, thankfully, icing sugar.

Any ideas? Please?

Request Number Two

I'd like to make my own zatar (za'tar) spice/herb mix. I know what basically goes into it, but I'd like to know in what quantities. And how hard is it to come across sumac?

Thanks everyone!
