Gluten-Free Honey and Almond Cake
- 2 cups Nut Up Almond Flour firmly packed
- 4 eggs pre-whisked
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil *or oil alternative
- 1/2 cup powered sugar for topping
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp Oaktown Spice Shop Saigon Cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp Oaktown Spice Shop Humboldt Sea Salt Flakes (finely grind)
- 1 tbsp Oaktown Spice Shop Natural Cocoa Powder for topping
- 2/3 cup Chico Honey Co - California Wildflower Honey
- 1.5 ounces Nut Up CHOPPED Natural Almonds
- 3/4 cup Ghiradelli Baking Chocolate Chips
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch springform pan (any cake pan will work) with butter and lightly dust with almond flour.
In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the almond meal, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and sea salt.
In a medium bowl, combine the whisked eggs, honey, and oil. Use a whisk to mix well.
In small bowl, combined powdered sugar and cocoa mixture. Sift until combined,
Pour the large mixing bowl's wet ingredients into the medium mixing bowl's dry ingredients. Stir just until there are a few clumps remaining. Pour the mixture into your prepared pan.
Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, until the cake is golden brown and the center is firm to the touch. Place the cake on a wire rack to cool to room temperature.
Use a double broiler or microwave/butter method to melt chocolate chips.
Once the cake is out of the oven, take water, cinnamon and 1 teaspoon honey in a small saucepan. Warm over medium heat, continue to stir until fully mixed.
Brush the cinnamon-honey glaze over the warm cake. It should soak right in.
Allow to cool and sprinkle powered sugar/cocoa mix in the small bowl across the cake. *You can create fun festive designs here with doilies, like the one used in our photo.
Drizzle the melted chocolate on the entire cake or slice-by-slice. We add Natural CHOPPED Almonds to the top for a crunch. & Enjoy!
