We would like to wish all our Jewish clients a very happy and healthy new year!
To kickstart a sweet new year we thought we would share our very easy Honey cake recipe which is flourless and deliciously soft and gooey!
1 1/2 cups whole almonds, toasted in the oven
4 large eggs, separated
1/2 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 cup sliced almonds, toasted in oven.
*Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 9-inch springform pan. Line the bottom with baking paper and grease the paper.
*Process whole almonds in a food processor until finely ground (you will have about 13/4 cups ground). Beat 4 egg yolks, 1/2 cup honey, vanilla, baking soda and salt in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed. Add the ground almonds and beat on low until combined.
*Beat 4 egg whites in another large bowl with the electric mixer on medium speed until very foamy, white and doubled in volume, but not stiff enough to hold peaks, (should take about 1 to 2 minutes). Gently fold the egg whites into the nut mixture until just combined. Scrape the batter into the prepared pan.
*Bake the cake until golden brown and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25-30 mins Leave to cool in the pan for 10 minutes. Run a knife around the edge of the pan and gently remove the side ring.Then leave to cool completely.
To serve, drizzle the top of the cake with honey and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
