Personal Almond Cake

A while back I was watching the cooking channel and while the name of the program I was watching escapes me, what stayed with me was the one chefs who made a quick chocolate cake in 30 seconds using a microwave and a cream whipper. Now while this was fascinating and the cake looked incredible, I don’t have a cream whipper. I wish I did (they’re great) but I don’t. So that got me thinking. How do you make a quick cake without a cream whipper? A little gluten free flour, an egg, some sugar, a little bit of flavor and a microwave.

Personal Almond Cake


  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon almond flour
  • 2 tablespoon all natural almond butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  1. In a small bowl beat the egg with sugar until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Stir in the almond butter and pure vanilla extract.
  3. Thoroughly mix in almond flour, baking soda, cinnamon and nutmeg.
  4. Spray a ramekin dish, small bowl, or even your favorite coffee mug with non-stick vegetable spray.
  5. Pour the batter slowly into your dish of choice and microwave on high for 30 seconds. (Do not over microwave!)
  6. Take out of the microwave and let stand for 2 minutes.

You may have to make more than one because it’d going to be hard to share this little gem. 🙂
