Easy Gluten Free Almond Honey Cake

Believe it or not! With just 3 ingredients you can make a delicious cake…

I wasn’t a bit skeptical about this recipe nor did I shy away from trying this cake. As soon as I saw this recipe on Anja’s Food 4 thought, I screamed with joy as it’s gluten free and it called for only 3 main ingredients. Absolutely the kind of recipe I always want to try.

A bag of ground almonds has been sitting in my pantry for a few weeks as I wasn’t quite sure on what to make. Hence, I googled for some recipe ideas and stumbled upon Anja’s website. Without much thinking, I walked straight into my kitchen and started making the cake. It took me less than 5 minutes to make the cake batter and in just 20 minutes a beautiful moist cake came out of the oven. Waiting for the cake to be out of the oven, my hubby came running too. After a few clicks of the cake, we both digged in and finished the cake in less than 15 minutes.

Thanks and hugs to Anja for sharing the recipe and Yes! I am glued to her website these days.
