Gluten-free Butter-free 100% Almond Flour Cake with Raisins, lightly glazed with Honey-Butter Syrup
• 2 cups finely ground almond flour
• 3 eggs, separated
• 1 cup white sugar
• 1 tsp baking powder
• 1 tsp cinnamon
• 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
• Raisins as per your requirement
Beat the egg yolks well until they become frothy and slowly add half the sugar. Mix well.
In a separate bowl, mix together the almond flour, cinnamon and baking powder. Then add the flour mixture to the beaten egg yolks and beat well. Add the vanilla extract.
Beat the egg whites into peaks and add the remaining sugar to it while beating. Dust the raisins with a bit of the almond flour and keep them aside.
Slowly add the beaten egg whites to the almond mixture and fold well. Remember to be gentle and not over-mix. Add the raisins and fold them through the mix.
Gently add the batter into a prepared baking tin and place in the oven. Bake at 170°C for 35-40 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let it cool off before de-molding it. Use a pastry brush to lightly brush the top with a mix of honey and melted better and serve.
