Almond Cake ---------------
Brown Sugar and Honey Frosting ----------------
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup cane sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons raw honey
  • 2 Tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups powdered sugar
For Almond Cake ---------------
  1. Combine the GF Flour Mix, honey, salt, butter, almond extract, milk, lemon juice, eggs, and applesauce.
  2. Refrigerate the batter for 12-24 hours. (The longer the better.)
  3. When you are ready to bake, let the batter come to room temp.
  4. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease and flour a 9x13 or two 9" cake pans.
  5. Add the baking powder, baking soda, and chopped almonds to the batter.
  6. Pour batter into prepared pan(s) and bake for 45-50 min. or until the cake springs back when you touch it. (You may have to increase your baking time a bit as soaked flours take longer to bake.)
  7. Cool and frost with Brown Sugar and Honey Frosting (recipe below).

Brown Sugar and Honey Frosting ---------------
  1. Melt butter. Add cane sugar and honey; bring to a boil, stirring constantly.
  2. Boil for about 1 min. Remove from the heat.
  3. Using a wooden spoon, stir in milk and vanilla. Beat in powdered sugar until smooth; cool 1 min.
  4. Spread evenly over cake and let set to form a light crust.
