plain and simple almond cake

If you think Plain and Simple Almond Cake sounds a little unexciting, just change the “plain and simple” to “light and delicious” and go get to cracking yourself some eggs. While you’re at it, separate those eggs, too, because this easy almond cake is made like a separated egg sponge with almond flour replacing the normal wheat flour. This cake is light and moist, with great flavor. Since it’s plain and simple, you can dress it up however you like…we ate it at home with some fig sauce. I gave a big chunk to a chef friend of mine who is gluten-free and a little cake-deprived. Poor guy! He was so happy and said it was the best cake he’d had in a long time. I’ll make it again for sure.

  1. This was a nice surprise – so tasty and so simple! Yours is so pretty!

  2. I liked this one too. The fig sauce sounds delicious.

  3. your cake looks delicious dressed up in fig jam. It’s quite a compliment from a chef even if he was cake deprived. 😉 I’ll be making this cake again just because I liked it so much. Maybe I’ll be brave enough to fill it too.

  4. Friends with gluten issues truly enjoy treats like this or anything homemade without wheat flour and other chemicals. This cake is a winner.

  5. lovely ❤

  6. Yum, fig sauce would have been great with this.

  7. This seems to be getting rave reviews. I am going to enjoy making it. Fig sauce sounds like a great side.

  8. I am going to make this after reading everyone’s amazing feedback 🙂

  9. I want to practice making this recipe before my GF sister arrives!
