For the cake
- 1 c Almond flour
- ⅓ c Coconut flour
- ½ tsp Cinnamon
- ¼ tsp Cardamom optional
- 4 Eggs room temperature
- ⅓ c Monkfruit sweetener
- Pinch of salt
- ½ c Unsweetened nut milk
- 1 tsp Baking powder
- Coconut oil for greasing the pan
For the Cinnamon Swirl
- 2 tbsp Coconut oil
- 1 tsp Cinnamon
- 1 tbsp Monkfruit sweetener
Preheat the oven to 325°F (162°C) and grease your 8x8 or 8x9 baking dish with coconut oil.
Using two bowls, one large for mixing, one smaller for liquids. Separate the room temperature eggs, put the egg whites in the larger mixing bowl.
Whip the egg whites using an electric mixer. After whipping them for about 30 seconds, gradually add the 1/3 cup of monkfruit sweetener. Whip until soft peaks form when you lift the beaters. Don't overmix.
Combine the yolks with the unsweetened nut milk and vanilla.
In a separate bowl, combine the almond flour, coconut flour, 1/2 tsp of cinnamon, cardamom (optional), baking powder, and salt.
Combine the wet and dry ingredients thoroughly.
Mix half of the whipped egg whites into the flour mixture. Make sure this is thoroughly combined.
Gently fold in the mixture into the rest of the whipped egg whites. Only mix until this is combined. If you over-mix this, the cake won't be fluffy!
Pour the batter into the prepared baking dish.
Prepare the cinnamon swirl
In a bowl, combine the swirl ingredients: 2 tbsp softened coconut oil, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1tbsp monkfruit sweetener. Spoon this into a Ziploc bag and snip the corner off. Drizzle this over the cake mixture that is in the baking dish. You can drizzle in a grid-shape.
Use a toothpick or chopstick to swirl the cinnamon mixture into the top of the cake.
Bake at 325°F for 40 minutes. Check the cake with a toothpick and make sure the toothpick comes out clean. Cool and enjoy!
-Be sure to whip the egg whites to ensure a fluffy cake.
-If you don't like coconut flour, you can use additional almond flour instead.
-Monkfruit sweetener measures 1:1 with sugar. If you use a different sweetener you can adjust the measurement accordingly.
- Cardamom is optional but adds a rich depth to the flavor of the cake. I highly recommend using it.
