How to Make Cake with Almond Flour

If you’re wondering how to make cake with almond flour my healthy homemade coffee cake is the answer. This easy cake recipe is made with only six ingredients:

  • Almond Flour
  • Salt
  • Baking Soda
  • Coconut Oil
  • Honey
  • Eggs

You can throw this easy coffee cake recipe together in no time flat. The cinnamon topping has three additional ingredients –coconut sugar, cinnamon, and sliced almonds.

Gluten Free Cake Recipe from Scratch

I created this Cinnamon Coffee Cake recipe by adapting it from one pioneered in my first book, The Gluten-Free Almond Flour Cookbook, which I wrote back in 2008.

This book still sells like hotcakes, pardon the expression. Both coffee cake recipes are gluten free, dairy free almond flour recipes.

The Best Coffee Cake Recipe – But Where’s The Coffee?

American coffee cake is a tender cake with a rich topping baked into it. This type of coffee cake rarely, if ever, contains coffee.

It’s called coffee cake because it’s typically served at breakfast, or in the afternoon, along with coffee.

We often serve Cinnamon Coffee Cake for dessert after a festive meal. If you’re interested in coffee cake muffins, check out my Nut Free Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins.
