Chocolate Almond Flour Cake with Truffle Sauce

Chocolate Almond Flour Cake

This Chocolate Almond Flour Cake with Truffle Sauce is made with a combination of almond flour and APF. Since we are using almond flour, the cake has a nutty taste which goes very well with the flavour of chocolate. Make sure you use good quality dark chocolate for the truffle sauce as this will enhance its flavour.

Serves: 4 to 6 Persons

Prep. Time: 30 Mins.

Baking Time: 30 to 35 Mins

For the Cake:

  • Maida [APF] – 40 gms
  • Almond Flour – 60 gms

  • Cocoa – ½ tbsp.
  • Butter (soft) – 85 gms
  • Eggs (at room temp.) – 2
