Flourless Honey-Almond Cake

March/April 2009

Your rating: None Average: 3.8 (393 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.



READER'S COMMENT:
"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. "

Yummy!

I was looking for a wheat free cake (it's bad enough going without a sandwich let alone a cake), well now I've found one. I did what someone else did and made half the mixture for muffin tins - didn't have enough honey for the whole amount. The mixture only made 8 but the were lovely. The cakes took longer to cook than the other lady said - more like 15 minutes but the fact that I cook with bottled propane gas might make a difference. I also used ready ground almonds and baking powder because I didn't know it was different the baking soda. I'll definitely be making them again.

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
