Gluten-free desserts don’t have to be dry and tasteless. With our almond cake, you can enjoy a super moist crumb and a subtly sweet flavor. Read more now.


  • 1 1/2 cups almond flour
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks), room temperature
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup whole milk, room temperature 
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup raw sliced almonds (optional)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar, for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with parchment paper and spray the paper and sides with cooking oil spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the almond flour, coconut flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar at high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, combining after each addition at medium speed. Add the milk and vanilla, mixing at medium speed until completely combined. 
  4. Add the dry ingredients, mixing at medium speed until completely combined. Scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl with a spatula, and briefly mix again. The batter will be thick.
  5. Transfer the batter into the prepared pan, spreading the top evenly with a spatula. Evenly scatter the sliced almonds on the top of the batter, if you choose to use them. 
  6. Bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool for 30 minutes before gently removing from the springform pan to cool completely on a wire rack. 
  7. Once completely cool, transfer to a serving platter and dust with powdered sugar. Serve and enjoy!
