Ingredients for 8 persons
- 200 g of flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking powder
- 1 pinch of salt
- 1 egg
- 100 g of fine sugar
- 200 ml of sugar-free almond drink (commonly called: almond “milk”)
For the mold greasing:
- 1 teaspoon of sunflower oil
For the cake icing:
- 50 g of icing sugar
- 2 teaspoons of water
- 2 tablespoons of almond drink
Preheat the oven to 180 ° C / 375 ° F.
In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
Add the egg and then the sugar. Mix.
Gradually add the almond drink while stirring.
In a pie dish, pour a teaspoon of sunflower oil.
Spread the oil in the bottom of the mold and its edges with a piece of paper towel.
Pour the preparation made in step 1 into the pie dish.
Bake the cake in the oven at 180 ° C / 375 ° F for 25 minutes.
At the end of cooking, unmold your cake on a plate.
Step 4: cake icing
When your cake is cooked and it begins to cool, you can prepare the icing.
In a small saucepan, melt the icing sugar with the spoons of water and almond drink. Continue cooking at a low heat until the mixture begins to thicken and brown slightly; the mixture must remain liquid.
When the icing is ready, immediately pour it on the cake and spread it with a knife over the entire surface of the cake.
Let the icing cool before serving. You can put the cake a few minutes in the fridge to accelerate the cooling.
