Cherry Almond Little Layer Cakes (Gluten Free)
Gluten free baked goods can be tricky to get right, but this almond cake recipe is so perfect you might not eve believe it doesn’t have any gluten! The cake is light and fluffy, unlike many gluten free baked goods which are too dense and tough/chewy. The cake is made with almond flour with a little bit of almond and vanilla extracts to enhance the flavor. The almond flavor of the cake pairs incredibly well with the fluffy cherry buttercream frosting.
Instead of baking each little cake circle individually, I baked a one layer sheet cake and used a cookie cutter to cut out each layer. You could really use whatever shape cookie cutter you’d like! These would be adorable as heart shaped cakes for Valentine’s Day 😉
These cherry almond little layer cakes are perfect individual desserts for your next dinner party! They’re a lovely little sweet treat that’s not too heavy, yet still satisfies the sweet tooth. Who doesn’t want their very own layer cake for dessert?
If you make a batch, I’d love to see how they turn out! Send me a quick snap or tag me on instagram @theautumnleann 🙂
