Simple Almond Cake

This is a simple and not-too-sweet cake to enjoy with a drizzle of chocolate sauce or a spoonful of preserves on top.  I intend to try this again soon substituting almond meal for part of the flour to up the almond flavor even more.

The Ingredients
1 cup almond butter
1 1/2 c almond milk
2/3 c applesauce
1 c sugar
1 t vanilla extract
1 1/2 t almond extract
2 t ground flax
2 1/4 c flour
2 t baking powder
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
optional: 1 t lemon extract

The Process

  1. Whisk together almond butter, almond milk, applesauce, sugar, extracts, and flax.
  2. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients.
  3. Whisk dry ingredients into wet ingredients, pour into 2 oiled 8-in round pans or a 9x11 pan, and bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes or until cooked through.
