Yes I named this post White Fruit Cake but is the cake really white? No not at all. I did not use white flour if that's what your thinking. Tod wanted me to recreate an angel food cake so this is what I came up with. I didn't use the traditional pan for this cake because I really wanted to try a layer cake. Since there was only the four of us I just wanted to do one layer. The cake isn't vegan, sorry to all my vegan readers! But it is gluten-free and I didn't use sugar either so I hope some of my readers can eat it. (I will make a vegan version soon)

And I hope you enjoy it. We gobbled it up in 15 minutes!

1 layer feeds 8 people
Makes 1  8" round cake

  • 1 3/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/4 tsp. celtic sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda 
  • 2 tsp. unpasteurized honey
  • 3 organic free range eggs
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • 4 tsp. coconut oil (melted)
Honey Meringue
  • 2 egg whites, at room temp
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice, sqeezed
  • 1/4 cup unpasteirized honey

  • Fruit of your choice, I used kiwi, banana and blueberries

1. Preheat the oven to 350° F (175° C). Start by greasing your 8" round pan (or pans) on the inner edges. I traced my 8" round pan on parchment paper and cut out a circle and then placed it inside my pan. After the cake was done it came out of the pan so nicely.

2. Place the dry ingredients in a large bowl and mix well. Add melted coconut oil, eggs, honey and vanilla and mix with a hand held mixer until fully incorporated with the dry ingredients.

3. Pour batter into the 8" round baking dish and place in the oven. Bake for 23 minutes on the middle rack. When the cake is done let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Then transfer to a cooling rack and let cool for an hour before decorating.

Honey Meringue

4. Whip room temp egg whites and lemon juice until frothy, with a hand held mixer. It took me around 7 minutes to get it thick. Meanwhile heat the honey on low temp until hot. After the egg and lemon mixture is thick, gradually pour the honey in the meringue while mixing. Mix again for another 3 minutes and then decorate the cake right away.
