Make and share this Almond Mini Cakes With Mixed Berry Topping recipe from Food.com.
- butter-flavored cooking spray
- 4 large eggs, at room temperature, separated
- 1⁄2 cup agave syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups almond flour or 2 cups almond meal
- 2 cups frozen mixed berries
- 2 tablespoons agave syrup
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons cornstarch
- Preheat the oven to 350°F Spray one mini muffin pan with a light coating of cooking oil spray. You can also use individual ramekin baking cups, but the yield will be less.
- In a large bowl, combine the 4 egg yolks, agave syrup, vanilla, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat until the ingredients are well blended.
- Add the almond flour or meal and beat on low speed until combined, about 2 minutes.
- Place the 4 egg whites in a large, clean bowl. Use either a handheld mixer with clean beaters or the whisk attachment on a stand mixer and beat the whites on medium speed until opaque, doubled in volume with soft peaks.
- Using a rubber spatula, gently fold the egg whites into the batter until just combined. Scrape the batter evenly into the prepared muffin cups, filling each three-quarters full. Bake, rotating halfway through, until the edges are light brown and a dime-sized soft center remains, 18 to 20 minutes. If using larger baking cups, you’ll need to increase the baking time by 5 to 10 minutes. Transfer the pan to a wire rack and let cool completely, at least 15 minutes.
- To make the berry topping, combine all the ingredients in a large microwaveable bowl and toss until combined. Microwave on high for 2 minutes, then stir and microwave again until slightly thickened and steaming, about 2 1/2; minutes more.
- Unmold the cakes. To serve, spoon 1 tablespoon of the warm berry topping on each cake. Extra cakes may be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 7 days.
