Gluten-free Double Chocolate Almond Cake

May 30, 2021 0 Comments A+ a-


I have been trying to cut down on desserts these days, but I really have a soft spot for this healthy Gluten-free Double Chocolate Almond Cake!

It tastes so richly indulgent (surprisingly filling!), yet doesn't contain "nasties" like refined sugar. In fact, no sugar was used at all. Only honey. 

Yes, this is one the reasons why I like baking. At least I can make sure that my family is eating well, while not "depriving" them the joy of eating. :)

Adapted from @yumhealth. 

Ingredients:
(A)
▪️ 4 eggs
▪️ 120g honey
▪️ 1 tbs vanilla extract

(B)
▪️ 140g almond flour
▪️ 30g chocolate powder (I use Hershey's)
▪️ 1/2 tsp baking soda
▪️ 1/4 tsp salt
▪️ 50g chocolate chips

Directions:
1. Preheat.
Preheat airfryer at 150 degrees C for 5 minutes.

2. Mix.
Mix all (A) ingredients together.

3. Mix.
Mix all (B) ingredients together. Make a well in the centre.

4. Combine. 
Add (A) into (B). Fold and pour into a baking pan. 

5. Bake. 
Cover the pan with aluminium foil and poke some holes. Bake in airfryer at 150 degrees C for 20 minutes.

6. Check. 
Remove the foil. Check that the cake is fully baked using a toothpick. If it doesn't come out clean, continue baking for another 5 minutes.

▪️  Add almond toppings (optional). 
Do so while the cake is still warm. Spread a thin layer of Nutella and immediately pour toasted sliced almond over the cake.


Serve warm. I added ice cream to go with my cake. So good!
