Almond Flour Cake Ingredients

I’m sure you already have all of the ingredients in your pantry. This lovely cake requires only eight 8 ingredients that are extremely easy to find. Here is everything you will need:

Almond Flour Cake Ingredients
  • Eggs – use large room-temperature eggs for the best results and avoid that eggy taste and smell.
  • Almond Flour – The cake’s texture comes from the almond flour, which must be superfine blanched almond flour and not an almond meal. Almond meal has a unique texture that makes the cake oily and dense.
  • Sweetener – You can use Erythritol, monk fruit, xylitol, or any other granulated sweetener you prefer. 
  • Almond Milk – makes the cake super creamy and moist.
  • Baking Powder – is used to make a soft and airy texture. 
  • Vanilla Extract – make sure you are using high-quality vanilla. You can also use almond extract or orange extract.
  • Butter – gives a buttery taste that makes this cake so delicious. To make a vegan almond flour cake, replace it with vegan butter or coconut oil.
  • Sliced Almonds

Tips For Making The Best Almond Cake

  • Make sure that you don’t overbake it because you don’t want to have a dry and crumbly cake.
  • You’ll have to keep an eye on the cake because it’s made with almond flour, which causes it to brown quickly.
  • After a few minutes, cover the cake with a large piece of foil to keep the cake’s top from burning.
  • Sift the almond flour for the fluffiest texture.

  • Fridge: you can store the almond flour cake leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 7 days.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I Make This Cake Using Coconut Flour?

Almond flour cannot be substituted with coconut flour in this cake recipe because its properties are completely different. However, for the best results, I highly recommend using almond flour. It’s available in most grocery stores, or you can get a few bags online.

Can I Use Replace The Almond Flour With Almond Meal?

I don’t recommend using almond meal because it has a different texture, and the result will be greasy rather than fluffy.

Is Almond Flour Healthy?

Sure, almond flour is a great substitute for wheat flour for people on a low-carb or gluten-free diet. Almond flour is made from ground almonds.

Can I Enjoy Almond Flour On A Keto Diet?

Because it’s low in carbs, high in fiber, and has a neutral flavor, almond flour is a great ingredient for those following a keto diet. For a two tablespoons (28g) serving, there are only 2 grams of net carbohydrates.

Ummm. In the directions it says: Add the almond flour, baking powder, and salt. But I don’t see salt on the ingredients list. How much salt are we supposed to use?

Add a pinch of salt when adding all the dry ingredients.
