Almond Cake Recipe With Fresh Fruits

This is one of my go to recipes that I love to make. I love the idea of it being so easy to make and so adaptable. I can change the flavor of the base easily and  I get to top it with whatever fruits I choose. For example, I could add orange zest, juice and topped with orange slices for an orange cake.

I love to use a combination of cashews and coconut cream for my frosting, see my Carrot Cake Recipe.

Almond Cake Recipe With Fresh Fruits

Lately here in the United States, we have been experiencing lots of natural disasters. Our most recent one is Hurricane Harvey in Texas, and pending Hurricane Irma will possibly directly impact us here in Florida. It is heart-wrenching to watch the images of loss and devastation. Let us continue to pray for those affected and for each other during these times.

We have to stay put because of my hubby’s work, so we are doing the best we can. We live in North Central Florida, and we can only prepare and hope for the best outcomes.

Back to the recipe. I used Bob’s Red Mill Super-Fine Gluten Free Almond Flour, and I made my own oat flour in a high-speed blender. I started out making the recipe with the intent of making a fruit pizza but the texture came out more like a cake one of those finds in experimenting.

    What’s an alternative to cashews with a person who has nut allergies (with the exception: almonds)

      Macadamia nut would be great if the price is not a factor.
