almond flour pound cake

Dear God in heaven, this is amazing:

Almond Flour Pound Cake

1 cup organic butter, softened
5 eggs
1 cup erythritol
2 cups Honeyville blanched almond flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

* Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Cream butter and erythritol well.
2. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each.
3. Mix almond flour with baking powder and add to wet mixture gradually while beating.
4. Add lemon and vanilla extracts and mix well.
5. Pour into a 9-inch loaf pan (greased with coconut oil) and bake for 45-50 minutes. Makes 12 servings.

* I highly recommend eating a piece while it's still warm. This would be perfect with a cup of coffee. Oh, and even Johnny loves this recipe.

sounds really delicious, jenni! unfortunately, that seems like a lot to pay for only 16 oz. of almond flour, though. good things it's so easy to make at home!

jenni said...

Yes, the almond flour was too expensive at Whole Foods as well. I plan to learn to make it myself or find it cheaper online.

I'm sorry, friend, what I said seemed rude. Bob's is a great brand. I really like their warm cereals. it's their select, hard-to-come-by items that are rightfully expensive.

No, I agree though I love the Bob's brand, too. Some things I buy last a long time (like ground flax seed) which is ok, but unfortunately, this recipe calls for the whole bag of almond flour! Oh, well - it was a delicious splurge. :)

I'll bet it was! :) thank you for sharing the recipe. I can't wait to try it.

I'm going to try this! I have gluten-free friends. Should be good.

Just FYI, Trader Joe's sells almond meal for SO MUCH cheaper than Whole Foods.

jenni said...

Margie, I think you'll dig it.

Stine, if only we had a Trader Joe's! Geez.

I just got my almond flour at Trader Joe's today! I don't think my bottom-of-the-line food processor could make the almonds appropriately fine for baking, so I'm super glad we have Trader Joe's here.

I'm hoping to make the recipe this week :-)
