Recipe: Flourless Almond Honey Cake

Saw an almond and a walnut tree for the first time in my entire life in Barossa yesterday. Kind of feels like Ive been living under a rock but the country was really beautiful. Wish I had brought my camera to capture everything but it slipped my mind :( I had heaps of fun though especially getting a Mandarin fresh off a tree with the leaf and stalk still attached. Things you dont normally see or do in the city.. LOL!

So back to the recipe, Im really into 4 ingredients and less than 1/2 hr prep time stuff these days.. so here’s another one that turned out not too bad :) No sugar, no flour but still yummy!

Ingredients

  • 1 cups whole almonds, toasted (1 1/4 cups almond meal)
  • 3 egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
Topping
  • 1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted/ chopped walnuts
  • Preheat oven to 175C.
  • Grease or line the bottom of a wide loaf tin with parchment paper.
  • Process toasted whole almonds in a food processor until finely ground. It will make about 1 1/4 cups ground almonds.
  • Combine ground almonds with honey until it has become a thick paste. Set aside.
  • Beat the egg whites with the salt until stiff enough to hold peaks. .
  • Gently fold the egg white into the almond honey mixture. Then transfer to prepared loaf tin.
  • Sprinkle batter with sliced almonds. Bake for 20-25 minutes, until cake has turned golden brown and inserted toothpick comes out clean. Let cool in the tin for 10 minutes.
  • Let cool completely on wire racks.
