Healthy Honey & Almond Cake

As part of my new phase of baking (Watch it all on Snapchat : StephanieOQ) , I kicked off with this special request from my Mum – Honey & Almond Cake – as seen on Rachel Allen‘s cookery show.However, I took the challenge to turn this into a healthy, clean cake so that I could enjoy it and of course, share it with you too. Just don’t tell my Mum there’s no sugar in it!As requested from my Snapchat (StephanieOQ), here is the simple, step-by-step so you can recreate this Healthy Honey & Almond Cake at home too.14484874_987406604739397_3597575197483740784_nDon’t forget to share your finished product with me!

Ingredients :

  • 150g of unsalted butter
  • 200g of organic honey
  • 50g of stevia
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 225g ground almonds
  • Half a cup of sliced almonds
  • Desiccated coconut / icing sugar (optional)

Step – by – Step :

Grease a large cake tin with unsalted butter and put greaseproof paper on top – My mum told me this works best, don’t ask why! 

Heat the butter.

Put 100g of the honey, the stevia, eggs and vanilla into a bowl and, using an electric whisk, beat for 3–4 minutes till light and fluffy. Then mix in the melted butter and ground almonds with a spoon.

Pour the mix into your prepared cake tin.

Bake in a pre-heated oven for 26–30 minutes till your knife comes out clean – keep checking the mix after about 18 minutes.

Toast the sliced almonds on a baking tray in the oven for about 8-11 minutes. Keep checking them as they can burn easily.

Leave the cake cool for an hour or so.

Heat the remainder of the honey – I did it in a microwave and it worked fine – and pour the hot honey over the cake. Sprinkle with toasted almonds and some icing sugar/coconut to make it look fancy!
