These little almond cakes made with browned butter are really easy to make, and quite a tasty little snack.
When I realized I did not have enough almond flour I remembered I had a supply of whole almonds in the freezer and decided to make my own flour. After a little bit of research I found an easy recipe of just blanching the nuts and letting them dry thoroughly. I then ground the almonds in the cuisinart for a short time and the flour came out perfect. It wasn’t as fine as the flour that you purchase but it certainly worked well.
Browning the butter was not as difficult as I thought it would be, but you do have to watch it carefully so as not to burn it. As David suggests, it should look like maple syrup.
I mixed the ingredients together and let it rest in the refrigerator for about two hours and then baked the little cakes for 15 minutes in a 400 degree oven.
The cakes came out a little too brown, but I’m not sure it didn’t have something to do with my flour, or perhaps the oven temperature was too hot, but they were delicious.
As you can see, the texture was still soft on the inside and very easy to enjoy.
