Let’s Get Started

You Will Need

  • 200g Finch Almond Flour
  • 250ml Finch Virgin Coconut Oil
  • 6 Eggs separated
  • 300g Caster Sugar
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla or Almond Extract
  • 100g All Purpose Flour
  • 1 tsp Baking Powder
  • Pinch of Salt

One Cup Toasted Almond Flakes with Caramel for Topping

Step One : Separate Eggs in clean and dry bowls.

Step Two : Mix Almond Flour and All Purpose Flour in one bowl

Step Three : Beat the yolks with virgin coconut oil in another bowl.

Step Four : Whip up the egg whites in a clean and dry bowl till nice and fluffy.Then add in caster sugar and beat well.This will resemble a glossy meringue mixture

Step Five : Mix the yolk mixture with the dry ingredients and add in vanilla or almond flavour.

Step Six : Fold in the meringue mixture till well combined.

The cake batter is now ready

Step Seven : Transfer to a cake tin or cake tin of choice.I used my bundt pan since it’s an occasion, and I’m so glad I did because it came out so well.

Step Eight : Bake in a preheated oven at 180’ for atleast 45 minutes or until a tooth pick comes out clean.

Step Nine : Do not attempt to unmould immediately because this is quite a dense cake and needs some time to settle before you can do anything to it.

You could serve this with just a dusting of icing sugar or if you’re in a mood for celebration , you could top with some frosting or a simple glaze.Today I used some toasted almond flakes with caramel and those edible flowers just made everything too pretty!!!

For Topping : I toasted the almond flakes and mixed it with some leftover caramel sauce and spread over the cake before serving.
