Almond Cake

A delicate almond four cake topped with thinly sliced almonds.

Easy and delicious. Two things I love and two things this recipe is all about!

So, step away from recipes with numerous ingredients that you don’t have in your pantry and use unending bowls and utensils.

You can literally make this Almond Cake in one bowl with seven simple ingredients.

And in less than one hour, you can serve this delicious cake to your family.

But, not only is this recipe easy, it’s also healthy.

This Almond Cake is made with almond flour – so if you are a gluten-free foodie, this is perfect.

Even if you are not on a restricted diet, the texture is soft and light and it really taste great.

It’s not too sweet so it’s great for breakfast or for snack.

And these days we all seem to love snacking!

Ingredients

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 2 cups almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds

Instructions

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 8-inch pan with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.
  2. Into a large bowl of a stand mixer, add the eggs and beat on high until fully incorporated. Add the sugar and vanilla extract and beat until fluffy and a soft pale color – about 3 minutes. Add the butter and mix until well blended. Then with the mixer on low gradually add the flour and baking powder and mix until just incorporated.
  3. Pour the mixture into your prepared pan, top with the sliced almonds and bake for 25-30 minutes – should be golden brown and will spring back when touched. Remove from oven and place on wire rack to cool. Remove from pan and cut.

I hope you enjoy a big slice of this simple Almond Cake today!

Sweetly,

Sheila
