Incredibly delicious and super easy, this one-bowl cake is the best kind of early Christmas gift. It’s perfect with a cup of tea and a friend.

We adore this almond cake recipe. It’s fresh and fragrant, and is even better with Teddy’s almonds cape town! We know both you & your guests will love it as much as we do. Almonds are also known to contain heart-disease fighting Polyphemus, which is an antioxidant. Even more reasons to bake this beauty!

Ingredients

For the cake:

  • ¾ Cup Almond Flour
  • ¾ Cup Plain Yoghurt
  • 1 ½ Cup Granulated Sugar
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 1 ½ Cup All Purpose Flour
  • 3 Tsp Baking Powder
  • ¾ Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Almond Extract
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla
  • ¾ Cup Sunflower or Canola Oil

For the glaze:

  • ½ Cup Sliced Teddy’s Almonds for garnishing
  • 1 Tsp Grated Orange Zest
  • 3 Tsp Fresh Orange Juice
  • ¾ Cup Powdered Sugar (Plus some more for sprinkling)

How To:

  1. Preheart the oven to 175®C. Grease a cake pan and line the bottom with parchment paper.
  2. Place almonds in a baking pan and bake for 15 minutes until they turn a plae golden brown. Don’t forget to stir every 5 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  3. Combine the yoghurt, sugar, eggs and stir until well blended.
  4. Add the flour, almond flour, baking powder, salt and extracts. Mix it all up!
  5. Add the oil. It may seem to separate, but keep stirring until smooth.
  6. Pour the batter into the pan and bake for 35 – 45 minutes until the cake feels springy to the touch. Be careful not to overbake – cover loosely with foil if it’s getting too brown towards the end and the cake isn’t done in the middle.
  7. Take out and let cool.

For the glaze:

  1. Mix the orange zest, orange juice, powdered sugar and extracts.
  2. Stir with a whisk until smooth
  3. Using a pastry brush, pat the glaze evenly over the cake. It’ll soak in.
  4. Sprinkle almonds over the cake while the glaze is wet and pat gently.
  5. Allow the cake to cool completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar.

Serve & enjoy!
