Cornmeal-Almond Meal Cake

March 27, 2020

Hey there foodies and bakers,

 

Cake for breakfast? Cake for lunch? Cake for dinner? This cake can be happily eaten at any time of day. It is made with all purpose flour, fine cornmeal, almond meal, and almond flour. The texture is light, soft, and can be served without frosting (or with, if you choose and have time). It is absolutely perfect paired with your favorite berries and whipped cream...my favorite way and easiest way! 

 

Not only is this cake easy to make, it can be easily adjusted too. Add citrus zest! Add chopped nuts! Add chocolate chunks! Once you get your baking skills down, it is easy to know what ingredients you can adjust.
