Prep time: 15 minutes
Baking time: 25-30 minutes
· Almond flour, (120g)
· Whole wheat flour, (60g)
· Unsweetened applesauce, (150g)
· Greek yogurt (unsweetened), (120g)
· Erythritol or stevia (or any preferred sugar substitute), (50g)
· Baking powder, 1 tsp
· Baking soda, ½ tsp
· Ground cardamom, ½ tsp
· Vanilla extract, 1 tsp
· Chopped almonds (for topping), (20g)
1. Preheat your oven to 175°C (350°F) and grease a 6-inch round cake pan with a light coating of oil (or use parchment paper) to prevent sticking.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine almond flour, whole wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and ground cardamom. Mix well to ensure even distribution of ingredients.
3. In a separate bowl, whisk together unsweetened applesauce, Greek yogurt, sugar substitute (erythritol or stevia), and vanilla extract until smooth and well combined.
4. Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and gently fold them together until you have a smooth batter. Be careful not to overmix.
5. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread it evenly using a spatula.
6. Sprinkle the chopped almonds on top of the batter, pressing them gently so they adhere.
7. Place the cake pan in the preheated oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
8. Once the cake is done, remove it from the oven and let it cool in the pan for about 10 minutes. Then transfer the cake to a wire rack to cool.
9. Once cooled, slice the cake into 3 servings and enjoy with a cup of herbal tea or a glass of unsweetened almond milk.
