Flourless Honey-Almond Cake

March/April 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.7 (539 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.

"To live (or to live) for! They made my apartment smell amazing. They are very moist and sweet. People were amazed to find out what they were made of. "

Amazing CAKE

OMG this is the best healthy cake seriously whoever came up with it... thank you. Its soooo yummmmyyy and smells like heaven. You can't tell its a healthy cake AT ALL!!!

Easy to make, easy ingredients, less time required and OMG SO YUMMY
Can't stop eating it!

Followed the recipe exactly the first time I made it, and it came out great, but a little burnt around the edges. The second time I lowered the heat to 325 and all was well; it baked for just a few minutes more. I added a teaspoon of instant coffee powder and topped it with sweetened coconut. I've never made a gluten free recipe before, and this was perfect for a beginner. I don't personally eat gluten free- but I love this cake!

Quick and easy
Amazing, but watch it close!

I loved this, my husband even said it's good and a lot better than my previous attempts at a healthy dessert. :) I rated this as awesome because the only thing that went wrong was my fault. I should know better! I checked it at 20 minutes and the middle still seemed to need a bit longer, I checked it after 5 more minutes and it was too done! In the end, ovens bake differently, and I knew mine seems to bake faster, I should have checked it again sooner. It's also like a sponge cake, and that bakes a lot different than high-sugar/high-fat cake. Keep a sharp eye on it! Great flavor and texture though :)

Soft and Sweet

not only is this recipe healthy delicious and easy, but very versatile. you can use different nuts and different flavorings, like banana walnut, cashew coconut and bourbon pecan

versatile, healthy

Trying several new healthy dessert recipes lately, and this is a really good and easy one. I think it needs about 40 minutes in the oven instead of 30. It's a bit dry so it's not for when you want real cake, but it's still pretty good, and being a healthy dessert you can eat goes a long way.

healthy, easy, delicious
