Almond cake with berry glaze

Amazingly soft and moist cake that melts in your mouth.

This amazing and light almond cake is very rich in flavor and really easy to make. It’s one of our favourites. It’s perfect spring dessert, with berry glaze on top, that makes it really pretty and so delicious.

You can make amazing desserts with basic ingredients and this cake is a proof. The key ingredient for it’s softeness is aquafaba. We love using aquafaba in our recipes because it makes desserts really soft and tender. Aquafaba is a water that is left when cooking chickpeas and can be used in the same ways as egg whites. When you mix it, it becomes really thick and if you gently mix it into batter, it makes it very soft.

You can serve as it is or top it with some berry glaze, different kind of fruits or melted chocolate. We decided to add this amazing berry glaze on top, that is made with berry syrup, some water and vanilla pudding powder. Really simple, but it tastes amazing! This glaze sets up really well on the cake, and doesn’t slide off like a lot of glazes do. This cake is perfect for a brunch or dessert, especially with a cup of hot coffee.
You can check our other recipes using aquafaba. We made delicious chocolate-coconut roll and walnut roll (potica).
