European Almond Cake {gluten free}

Found an excellent recipe in Cook's Illustrated. Then thought I should make it gluten free!

European Almond Cake
adapted from Cook's Illustrated

2 cups                                         almonds, whole and raw
1/2 cup                                        sorghum flour
1/4 cup                                        arrowroot
1/4 cup                                        rice flour
3/4 t                                             salt
1/2 t                                             baking powder
1/4 t                                             baking soda
3/4 t                                             psyllium husk
1/4 t                                             chia seeds
4                                                  eggs
3/4 cup + 2T                               cane sugar
1 T +1/2 t                                    lemon zest
3/4 t                                             almond extract
5 T                                              butter, melted
1/3 cup                                        olive oil

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Grease a 9-inch round pan. 
  • In a food processor grind all almonds until it turns to flour. Reserve 1/2 cup of the almond flour in a bowl with 1/2 t of lemon zest and 2 T sugar. 
  • In a bowl add the rest of the almonds with all the flours, salt, baking powder, baking soda, psyllium husk and chia seeds. Stir to combine.
  • Process eggs, the rest of the sugar, lemon zest and almond extract until pale yellow. About 2 minutes. With food processor running drizzle the butter and oil until incorporated. 
  • Add the almond flour mixture to the food processor. Pulse 5 times.
  • Transfer to the round pan. Sprinkle the almond, lemon, sugar mixture on top. Spread evenly.
  • Bake for about 55 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. 
  • I served it with coconut frosting and salted butterscotch.
