Super easy and tasty almond cake made in a snap!

  • 2 c. almonds, organic, raw
  • 3/4 c. coconut sugar, organic
  • 1/2 c. applesauce, no sugar added, organic
  • 3 egg white, from large egg, cage-free, organic
  • 1 tbs. butter, unsalted, organic, raw or unpasteurized, grass-fed/pastured
  • 1 c. whipping cream, heavy, full-fat, raw, grass-fed or pastured, organic
  • 3 tsp. coconut sugar, organic
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract, organic

Grind the almonds in a food processor until fine (1-2 minutes). Place in bowl. Add coconut sugar. Mix with spatula. Combine applesauce and egg whites; mix. Add the wet to the dry and mix with spatula. Grease the forms of your choice - muffin forms, mini loaf pans, heart shaped spring forms, what ever you have in your house, and bake for 40-50 minutes at 320ºF. The cake is finished the moment a wooden stick comes out clean.

If you can get non-homogenized heavy whipping cream, it whips more than twice as fast as the homogenized heavy whipping cream. Use a hand mixer. Combine heavy whipping cream with coconut sugar and vanilla in a bowl. Whip for a minute or three until ready. Let cake cool before icing it.
