1. Sugar-Free Cinnamon Almond Ring Cake
This Sugar-Free Cinnamon Almond Ring Cake by Sara Oliveira looks complex, but it’s so easy to make, it’ll make you feel like a professional. It’s made from wholesome ingredients like spelt flour and completely sugar-free, thanks to the addition of xylitol. You can choose from two fillings: one is made with coconut oil and has a rich, buttery coconut flavor that complements the cinnamon while the other is made with almond butter, which enhances the flavor of the crunchy almonds in the filling.

7. Almond and Chocolate Fudge Mini Cakes
The cakes rise quite a bit the first fifteen minutes or so in the oven, then they start to fall. Don’t be alarmed by this – that’s how they are supposed to be! There’s something so nice and homely about a fallen cake: the crackled top, the fudgy center, the not-quite-so-perfect look about it. You will love these Almond and Chocolate Fudge Mini Cakes by Clémence Moulaert!
8. Opera Cake
