Short and Sweet: 2 minute Almond, Cinnamon Apple Cake

Vancouver, Canada

This has got to be the most incredible and simple dessert to make. Seriously. I am on the Paleo diet- however I was having friends over for dinner and wanted to have a treat dessert. And I found this recipe from The Paleo Mom – and I’m hooked. And my friends are hooked. I have adapted the recipe- mine uses pecans and omits the coconut.






1 egg

2 Tbsp Honey

1/2 an apple, peeled and finely chopped

3 Tbsp Almond Flour

2 Tbsp chopped pecans

1/4 tsp cinnamon

One microwave safe cup


Add the egg in the cup and beat it with the honey. Add all other ingredients and blend with a spoon. Put in your microwave for anywhere between 1.5-2 mins on HIGH in your microwave (times depend on how powerful your microwave is.)

Voila- seriously. Done. Delicious. Enjoy!

    That’s crazy! So simple. Do you know how I could make this into chocolate cake????

    Mmmmm I’d have to try something out to make it full chocolate. But tonight I managed to make it into an almond, chocolate and pear cake. I omitted the cinnamon, put 1/2 a pear instead of apple and then put 2 squares dark chocolate. Yeah- it was delicious.

      Sounds yum! Did you chop the chocolate squares? I might try with orange instead of pear – hopefully won’t make the cake runny?

    Oh dear, you just made those watching tv, craving something sweet attacks possible to do something about. Now I will have to find the strength to resist. Bad Emi.
