Flourless Honey-Almond Cake

March/April 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (405 votes)

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.

This is a fantastic recipe, we loved it. Be very careful not to burn it as it browns very quickly. I also made this with 1 3/4 cups of almond meal.
I made a glaze with about 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter and the same of honey melted together and brushed over the cake while still warm.

I made this last night. I too bought the almond meal from Sprouts. I did substitute the honey with Agave nectar because I'm scary and I was making it for a kid 15 month old. My entire family loved it. I served it sweetened mulled berries and homemade whipped cream. I will definitely make this again! A must try whether you are going gluten free or not.

If you are worried about the honey, you should be more worried about agave nectar which is higher in fructose than HFCS. Fructose is low glycemic, which is why it has been confused for a healthy sweetener. Since fructose is digested in your liver, it is immediately turned into triglycerides or stored body fat.

We all loved this easy recipe! flourless and you don't have to use sugar! Honey is far better and healthier.
my kids loved it and had it for breakfast :) I also bought the almond meal from trader Joe's so that cut the prep time a bit.

Fabulous! I made half a recipe and baked it (14 min.) in muffin tins. Served with macerated peaches and blueberries, topped with a soft honey meringue and toasted slivered almonds. To die for.
