Description

Eight simple ingredients are all you need to make our Sweet, chewy, nutty and satisfying flourless Orange Honey Almond Cake. This Almond Cake makes for a fabulous ending of your Rosh HaShanah, Passover or holiday meal.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups almond meal (here we used Bob’s Red Mill) (for Passover use finely ground almonds)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 jumbo eggs ( or 3 large eggs)
  • 1/2 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1 tsp natural vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Zest of 1 medium orange (or to taste)
  • 1/4 cup shelled pistachios, roughly chopped

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350F.  Lightly grease an 8 inch round cake pan. Using a pencil, trace a circle the size of the pan on parchment paper and cut it out. Place it at the bottom of the greased pan and press it down, so it fits well all around.  Place oven rack in medium-low position
  2. Combine almond meal and baking powder in a bowl. Set aside
  3. Combine eggs, sugar, honey, vanilla, and salt in a large bowl. Beat using an electric mixer for 3-4 minutes. Add orange zest and almond meal/baking powder mixture and mix until just combined
  4. Fold in chopped pistachios and pour batter into greased pan. Bake at 350F for 25-30 minutes o until a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. Let the cake cool. Place a large place over the pan and turn it over. The cake should release easily. Carefully feel off the parchment paper.
