Sugar Free, Gluten Free Almond Tea Cake

Welcome back to another blog on Rasoisaga. Writing this recipe after a long break and excited to share this healthy bake with my readers. This is a mini cake recipe that I tried after my Dad was diagnosed with high levels of sugar. He used to have sweet cravings after every meal, much like each one of us, but he could not consume any dessert from stores. The store bought ones, are filled with sugar, cream, maida, additives and lots of elements that make it taste and look the way it does. We had to avoid that for him and bake something that would be healthy and delicious at the same time. Then, this recipe was born and it became an instant hit at home! It is stevia (plant based sweetner) based, does not contain any maida, additives or cream. The best part about this bake is that it gets ready within an hour and is simple to bake at home. Weight watchers, people with slightly high sugar levels or healthy dessert lovers, this is for you!  So, let us get started with the recipe:

Preparation:

Keep a 6 inch baking pan lined with parchment paper and ready

Preheat your oven at 180 degrees and keep it ready

Ingredients :

3 eggs

3 tbsp stevia powder/any sugar free powder

½ tsp vanilla essence

50 ml melted butter/Ghee

70gms almond flour

½ tsp baking powder

2 tbsp water/oil

METHOD:

  1. In a bowl, add 3 eggs, 3 tbsp stevia powder, vanilla essence, butter and whisk well.
  2. Grind 70gms almonds with skin in your mixer to get almond flour.
  3. Add the almond flour to the bowl and mix.
  4. Add the baking powder and mix.
  5. Add 2 tbsp water to the mix and combine.
  6. Lastly, add 2 tbsp dried cranberries or walnuts or blueberries to the bowl and mix everything.
  7. You will get a watery batter which needs to be added to your lined pan.
  8. Bake at 180 degrees for 30-32 minutes till it is perfectly baked.

 

Let the cake cool down for 4-5 minutes  before unmolding and cutting. You will get a super soft crumb and a delicious cake, ready to be consumed! This is my absolute favorite healthy baking recipe that I would recommend you to try at home. I have not tried an eggless version for this.
