Ingredients

  • 1 cup tapioca starch
  • ¾ cup almond flour
  • ¼ cup coconut flour
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon ground flax seed*
  • 12 tablespoons butter, melted, cooled and set asidev
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1-1/4 cups sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • Powdered sugar for dusting

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Melt butter over low heat, cool and set aside.

In a medium bowl, whisk together tapioca starch, almond flour, coconut flour, kosher salt, baking soda, baking powder and ground flax seed; set aside.

In a large bowl, whisk together the melted butter, sugar, eggs, sour cream, almond extract and pumpkin pie spice until well blended.

Add half of the dry mixture and whisk until nearly incorporated; add remaining dry mixture and whisk until well blended.

Spray pans well with cooking spray and fill pans ¾ way full; drop pan on the counter a couple of times to release any air pockets.

Place cakelette (mini-bundt) pan on baking sheet and bake for 25-30 minutes or until tester comes out clean.

Cool in pans for 6 minutes, then place a cooling rack directly on top of the cakelettes and flip over, turning the cakelettes out of the pan.

Cool completely and dust with powdered sugar right before serving.

These cakelettes can be made one day ahead and will keep for about three days.

*You can substitute ground chia seeds or psyllium husks as well; I have a mix of equal parts flax, chia and psyllium husks in a jar set aside for baking.
