Chocolate Almond Flour Cakes for Two

  • Author: adapted from A Couple Cooks
  • Prep Time: 5 mins
  • Cook Time: 35 mins
  • Total Time: 40 minutes
  • Yield: 2 1x


Units Scale
  • 1/2 cup raw almonds (or almond meal)
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch cayenne
  • 3 Tbsp butter, plus a bit for buttering the ramekins
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • powdered sugar, for dusting


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 F. Lightly butter two small ramekins, and set aside.
  2. In a food processor, pulse the almonds until they are a fine powder (but don't make them into a butter!). Mix in the cinnamon, salt, and cayenne. Set aside.
  3. In a microwave-safe dish, combine the butter, sugar, and chocolate chips. Microwave for one minute, then in 30-second increments, stirring until the chocolate chips are completely melted and the mixture is smooth.
  4. Whisk in the beaten egg, then add the almond meal mixture. Mix until smooth, divide between the ramekins, and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Dust with powdered sugar for serving.
