Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray a 9" cake pan with nonstick spray and line with a circle of parchment paper.
  2. Make the flax egg by combining the flax meal and water together in a bowl. Stir well and set aside for 10 minutes.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  4. In a medium bowl, heat the coconut oil to melt. Then, whisk in the sugar, almond milk, vanilla extract, and flax egg.
  5. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix well with an electric mixer or a spatula until a smooth batter forms.
  6. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick into the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool the cake completely. Meanwhile, make the icing by whisking together the powdered sugar, almond milk, and vanilla. Then, toast the almonds in a pan over the stove or in the oven for 5 minutes or until lightly browned.
  8. Drizzle the cooled cake with the icing. Sprinkle toasted almonds on top while the icing is still fresh
