This was my first attempt at gluten-free baking, and I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to make, and how delicious! Very few ingredients, and just the right amount of sweetness. This is my new go-to cake recipe.
Flourless Honey-Almond Cake
From EatingWell: March/April 2009
Honey and almonds flavor this simple (and gluten-free) cake. It's lovely for afternoon tea or a spring holiday dessert. Be careful not to overbeat the egg whites—they should be white and very foamy, but not at all stiff or able to hold peaks. If you beat them too much, the cake may sink in the middle as it cools.

Made this at Christmas for my brother and his family who are gluten free and wheat free. I also put a clemintine juice/zest honey glaze on top of the almonds when it was warm, Everyone LOVED it- recipe is a keeper and will share and make again!
Fast, easy, delicious. I left off the drizzled honey and just added the slivered almonds to make it a little less sweet. Dinner guests raved and took some home.
This is one of my all-time favorite recipes! I use 3/4 cup finely ground almond meal instead of grinding my own, and I top with fresh sliced strawberries and sweetened whipped cream. Its amazing every time!
This is a great cake for Passover as it does not contain flour. I have made it both for the Seder on the first night of Passover and for the last day, and the whole family loved it.
