About this recipe
This Almond Flour cake is made with a combination of almond flour and whole wheat flour. As it is eggless, using whole wheat flour and flax egg helps in binding the cake and it doesn’t fall apart.
If you are wondering how I got the deep brown color? I used coconut sugar which gives that beautiful color to the cake. I also added some lemon zest which goes really well with the almonds.
This recipe was my humble attempt to make some thing delicious but using whole some ingredients. It took me few trails to get to the recipe we all liked at home. Hope you enjoy it.

If we don’t use animal products, can I use almond milk with vinegar instead of curds
yes… though personally I never tried, I have seen many recipes which use almond milk and vinegar to make buttermilk.
What is flex meal as I got flex seeds
you can powder the flax seeds to make flax meal
Your receipe is so detailed and also easy to make. I made it yesterday and it turned out delicious.
Thankyouu for guiding us so well.
So glad you enjoyed the cake Jyoti.
Can this recipe work without the flax meal? I have everything else except for this one ingredient! Thanks! DD
We need a binding agent to hold the cake. If you eat eggs, you can replace flax with one egg. If you don’t prefer egg, replace it with 1/4 cup yogurt. Hope it helps!
Thanks so much Madhavi! Just wanted to confirm that if I plan on using the 1/4 cup yogurt instead of egg, it will be in addition to the 3/4 cup yogurt in the ingredients list?
I have not used yogurt to replace flax egg in this cake. But I know 1/4 cup of yogurt is a substitute for 1 egg ( or in this case flax egg). So it should work. Yes… 1/4 cup yogurt will be in addition to the 3/4 cup of yogurt. If you try it please share your feedback which will help other users. Thank you!
I appreciate the high quality ingredients you’ve used. My cake is in the oven and smells wonderful. To keep it vegan, I used a thick soy milk with a touch of lemon juice instead of yogurt. It is rising perfectly. Thank you. (from North Carolina)
I love the vegan substitutes you used. Hope you enjoyed the cake.
I made this today and it was yummy! Thank you for the simple and detailed recipe.
Thank you Anjali for sharing your feedback! So glad you liked it.
