Delicious Cranberry Cake

I love cranberries.


They are so pretty, and I love the way their natural tartness complements sweet baked goods. This gluten free, almond flour cranberry cake is delicious, and since it’s not super sweet, I love serving it for breakfast. Such a wonderful winter treat!

Yield: 8 slices


  • ½ tablespoon butter or coconut oil for pan
  • 4 large eggs
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups blanched almond flour
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup (90 grams) fresh cranberries


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Generously grease a 9-inch glass pie plate with butter or coconut oil.
  2. In a large bowl, lightly whisk the eggs. One by one, gradually whisk in the honey, vanilla, almond flour, kosher salt and baking soda.
  3. Using a spatula, fold in the cranberries.
  4. Use the same spatula to transfer the batter onto the prepared pie plate.
  5. Bake until puffy, browned and set, and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
  6. If after 30 minutes the cake is not yet fully baked, loosely tent it with foil to prevent over-browning, and continue baking 5-10 more minutes.
  7. Cool the cake, in the pan on a cooling rack, to room temperature, about 30 minutes, then slice and serve. I keep leftovers in ziploc bags in the fridge, warming them very briefly in the microwave (10 seconds per slice) before serving.
