Dairy and Grain Free Almond Cake with Coconut Sugar

 

My fiance loves almond cake. Whenever we go to Rainbow Acres, which is a local health food store, he gets their almond cake. So when I got those cute little mini bundt cake molds, I wanted to experiment with some almond flour baking in my new food processor. Normally for my muffins, I use less sugar since they are a breakfast food. Since this was a cake recipe, I decided to be generous with the amount of coconut sugar I added. I wouldn’t consider this a health food, but a healthier alternative to store bought dessert.

  1. My mother made me almond cake each year for my birthday – I miss it when February rolls around. Will be giving this a try to see if I can restore a family tradition. Thank you for posting!
