Home Eats Apple almond cake – No flour, No refined sugar

Apple almond cake – No flour, No refined sugar

written by bibouzi 29 May 2017

When I am invited to diner, I rarely go empty-handed. This weekend, I had to prepare something for Saturday night, I did not have much at home and I couldn’t go out. I had only almond flour and apples so I use them to make a cake and the result was great! Plus, it’s a healthy recipe again.

Ingredients
2 cups almond flour or crushed almonds,
1 tsp baking powder,
¼ cup of olive oil,
¼ cup honey,
1 tsp of vanilla,
2 eggs,
Zest of an orange,
2 apples, diced,
Almond chips to decorate.

Preheat oven to 320F.
Mix all ingredients except apples and almonds.
Add the apples to the mixture and incorporate them well.
Pour everything into a pan that you have wrapped beforehand in parchment paper.
Garnish with the almond chips.
Bake 60 to 80 minutes.
Let stand for 30min.

 

Sorry for the pictures. I was running late for my dinner invitation.

Bottom line: it tastes good!

Not sure if my first comment made it on here…don’t see it now.
Anyway, what “story” do you mean? Can you post the pan size here or if someone can share, that would be amazing! Thanks in advance.

Sorry to read that! It always worked for me and still does.

You must have left out some liquid in this recipe… not working out at all!

Reply
bibouzi 30 May 2020 at 11 h 15 min

No, this is it! Oil, honey, eggs, … these are all liquids.

Maybe you forgot a step.

There is no measurement for the honey; it just says 1/4 honey. Is that 1/4 cup of 1/4 tsp?

Reply
bibouzi 30 March 2020 at 10 h 52 min

sorry it’s 1/4 cup

I have a lot more recipes on the French version. I didn’t post on the English version since at least 2 yrs.

I was wondering if I make this in large cupcake size, do you think the cooking time would remain the same or how would I know that they are cooked?

Reply
bibouzi 25 April 2020 at 0 h 03 min

This size is large so if you make smaller size, you’ll need to adjust cooking time

Your cake looks so big. Mine didn’t rise well at all.

Reply
bibouzi 30 March 2020 at 10 h 49 min

maybe that the cake mold you choose was too big

I’ve been looking for a healthy’ish cake with apples, almond ground, like you what I have in my cupboard, however, I dont’ have honey, but I have algave, coconut blossom sugar or stevia, do you think any of those could be substituted. I also don’t have an orange, I have lemons, lime or grapefruit….it’s right up my Strasse so I’m keen to try…

Reply
bibouzi 15 May 2020 at 13 h 25 min

Yay! I think you found the one lol
Yes, I’m sure you can use another liquid sweetener like algave
same goes for replacing orange with lemon

Sabrina 26 May 2020 at 12 h 04 min

This looks delish! Just wondering if you can post what type of apple you used. I have some granny smith on hand and want to make this asap! 😉 Thanks!

Reply
bibouzi 30 May 2020 at 11 h 13 min

thanks! I used yellow apples. they are sweet. Green apples contain less sugary taste than the yellow or the red ones.

Patty 6 June 2020 at 19 h 28 min

Omg soooo good! I could wait to taste it even before I took a photo. I substituted maple syrup for the honey. Yum!!!

Made this today, but I had some yummy smelling peaches near by, so I used them instead of apples, and I added some almond extract. Everyone loved it!! And they even said they would have never guessed it was gluten free! Thank you for this delicious recipe! I feel like there are all kinds of fun options to make with it!

thank you so much for your comment! Ill try it with peaches next time. That seems delicious.

Hi Janet. It was years ago that I shared the recipe. I found it on Pinterest with no specific website or name. Thanks for the info! It’s already done.
Have a great day!
