3 Ingredient Almond Cake

This recipe is soooooo simple it only has 3 ingredients - it doesn't get any easier than that! Yet it's also insanely delicious (seriously we always eat the whole thing), not to mention gluten free AND dairy free - so you'll be able to keep everyone happy with this. Enjoy!

3 Ingredient Almond Cake

Here's what you'll need:

  • 125g Ground Almonds
  • 4 Eggs
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey (optional)

Yup that's it! A word on the honey - yes we know it's not the 'healthiest' choice of sweetener but its does go so well with almonds. However, the honey adds nothing but taste so you can simple make the cake without it or add another sweetener of your choice. That's that one sorted.

Start by separating the eggs and beating the whites until they’re very stiff. We do this a lot in our recipes because this method helps the cake to rise without the need for flour or baking powder - two things we know you try to avoid!

Next, whisk together the egg yolks with the honey (or alternative sweetener of choice). Add in the ground almonds a little bit at a time, it'll be much harder all at once, until fully mixed and a paste has formed. Now slowly fold in the egg whites being careful not to overwork the mixture.

Gluten free dairy free cake

Add to a greased tin (I used a 20cm round but go crazy and choose whatever takes your fancy) then bake for 25 mins at 170C. Leave until completely cool on a wire rack, if you remove the cake too soon it will fall. That's it! Super quick and simple, now cut it and try not to eat the whole thing at once - we dare you!
