Eggless Honey Almond Cake Recipe

The Best-Ever Super Moist Eggless Honey Almond Cake is here, and trust me, you don’t want to miss this!! It is a perfect dessert to indulge in guilt-free sweet cravings! Why am I saying that? Because it’s made completely using whole-wheat flour! Interesting, right?

I had my first almond and honey cake when I was a little girl. This new bakery had these amazing travel cakes that I never tasted before. One of them was a Honey Almond Cake. That cake was a moist cake soaked with honey and loaded with almonds. That cake blew me away; it was so simple yet so unique. 

Years later, a new version of honey almond came on the market, where a soft vanilla sponge was baked along with a honey and almond glaze. So, now you have a vanilla sponge base and caramelized sticky honey glaze with almonds on top. This version was much more creative and delightful. So, the next thing I knew, what I had to do was to make my rendition of this cake. 

I decided to make an eggless cake using whole-wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour, yet the cake had to be super tender and moist! You would think, how is this even possible? But this recipe will make you believe that even whole wheat flour eggless cakes can also be delicious, soft, and moist.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe? 

  • Unique: The cake is unique in itself because you won’t find such cakes in regular bakeries these days. This seems to be a special order cake which can become your bestseller too. I’m pretty sure people would love to eat it repeatedly once they try it. 
  • Soft and Moist: The texture of the cake is so amazing. The cake remains moist throughout its shelf life due to the honey glaze on top. The honey seeps into the cake, and it makes the cake moist. The tenderness comes from various weakening agents used in the recipe, like baking powder, baking soda, and curd. 
  • No All-Purpose Flour: Everyone has become a little self-conscious about what they eat nowadays. People are shifting towards more healthier options. Keeping this in mind, who would not try a whole-wheat cake that is eggless, has less refined sugar, and is still so delicious? I know, I wouldn’t be able to resist it.

Important Ingredients Used In The Recipe

  • Whole wheat flour: Unlike standard all-purpose flour, I have chosen to use whole wheat flour to make this cake slightly healthier. It helps make the cake more wholesome and filling. 
  • Curd: Since the cake is eggless, curd is being used as an emulsifier, which helps bind all ingredients together. It also reacts with the leavening agents, making the cake soft and tender. 
  • Honey: Honey is not just used as a glazed top but also as a sweetener in the cake. Using honey helps reduce the castor sugar quantity in the cake. It also keeps the cake moist. Use good quality honey that is free from impurities. 
  • Rising Agents: Both baking powder and baking soda are used in the recipe. The quantity of the two may seem a bit high when compared to other cakes. This is because we are using whole wheat flour, which has more gluten than all-purpose flour, and a little extra rising Agents help break the gluten and tenderize the cake. 
  • Almonds: Almonds add a great crunch to the soft cake. It also brings a superb nutty flavor along with it. 
  • Cream and Butter: The addition of fresh cream and butter in the honey glaze makes it rich and buttery. The consistency remains flowy and thick. 

How To Make Honey Almond Cake

Preparation: Collect all ingredients required to make the cake and honey glaze. The correct quantity is mentioned in the recipe card below. Preheat the oven to 180C (OTG mode: upper rod + lower rod + fan). Grease and line a 6-inch round tin with oil and butter paper.

Method For Honey Glaze

Melt Butter: Take a saucepan and add butter to it. Keep it a low heat and melt the butter. 

Add Sugar and Honey: Next, add castor sugar and honey to the melted butter and mix. Continue to cook the mixture until the sugar dissolves. 

Add Remaining Ingredients: Once the sugar melts, add cream, whole and chopped almonds, and cinnamon powder. Mix everything well and stop cooking after a minute or two. 

Method For Cake

Dry Ingredients: In a bowl, sieve all dry ingredients, which are whole-wheat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and sugar. Give it a quick mix. 

Add Curd: Now add Curd to the dry ingredients and start mixing using a spatula. 

Add Remaining Ingredients: Add all remaining wet ingredients – honey, milk, water, and refined oil to make the cake batter. Make a smooth and lump-free batter. 

Bake: Transfer the batter to the prepared tin and bake the cake at 180C (OTG mode: lower rod only). 

Add Honey Glaze: After 15-30 minutes of baking, when the cake is around 80% cooked, remove the cake from the oven and spread the honey almond glaze over the cake. 

Bake Again: Put the cake back in the oven to bake for another 10 minutes. 

Cool and serve: Once the cake gets baked, let it cool at room temperature first. Then, keep it in the refrigerator to cool further. After cooling, remove it from the tin and serve. 

Chef’s Tips For The Recipe

Tip While Adding Glaze

While adding the cake, ensure that the cake is just about to bake and is not less than that. If the cake is not baked around 70-80%, it won’t have the strength to hold the weight of the glaze. 

Press The Dome If Required.

When the cake is removed for poring glaze, check for any dome on the cake. If the cake has a dome, press it slightly with a spoon to make it even from the top. Then, you can spread the glaze. 

How To Store Honey Almond Cake

Store the baked cake in an airtight box at room temperature for 3-4 days or in the refrigerator for a week. 

You can store it in the freezer for increased shelf life of a month. Thaw it in the refrigerator first and then reheat it to consume.

Frequently Asked Questions 

Can I add butter instead of oil to the cake? 

I would recommend sticking to using oil as it keeps the cake tender and moist. You can still use melted butter if you want to by following this ratio: 80ml oil = 100ml melted butter. You must use melted butter only and not softened solid butter, as liquid must be replaced with liquid only. 

Can I add any other nut? 

Of course, you can add any nut of your choice. Even a mix of two or three nuts, like almonds, walnuts, and pistachios, would be great. 

My cake has sunk from the center. What should I do? 

You must ensure that when you add the honey glaze, the cake is not weak in structure. It must be in the near-baked stage, where it only needs 8-10 minutes of baking. If the cake has a weak center and you pour the glaze over it, it may sink due to its weight.

“I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date”
Before this program I knew a little about manifestations, but as I discovered during the program, I had a lot of limiting beliefs that kept me from fully embracing and accepting myself as a manifestor.
During this program I became more aware of what manifestation is and how powerful I am. I become more aware of my guides, of my highest self and that I can pull the best of my highest self into my present. Since this program I no longer wrestle with trying to convince myself that what I desire will happen. I know that it has happened, it is done and it is mine, here and now. I achieved 10% of my short-term manifestation before my target date, my eyesight has improved and I no longer need glasses for distance vision, only for reading, I gave myself a make-over as part of my commitment to my renewal and I began to de-clutter my space.

“My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes”
Joining “The Art of Manifesting” was a life-changing decision for me. This is now the third time going through the quest and focusing on different areas of manifestation.
Regan is a powerful guide and she walks the talk.
This 28-day journey was a blend of practical techniques and profound energetical activations. I learned to visualize my goals clearly, expand my possibilities, and overcome the limitations holding me back from living a life i desire. The quest’s unique approach to identity hacking helped me align my inner self with my aspirations, making the manifestation process more effective and authentic.
The biggest takeaway for me was the acceleration of manifestation by bending time and tapping into the highest frequencies. The techniques taught in the quest enabled me to see results much faster than I expected. My professional and personal life has seen significant positive changes, and goals that once seemed unattainable are now within reach.
I’m beyond grateful for the wisdom and tools I’ve gained from this quest and Regan. It’s not just about manifesting; it’s about transforming your entire lifestyle. I highly recommend “The Art of Manifesting” to anyone looking to turn their dreams into reality.

“This course and listening to Regan’s podcasts gave me the tools to acknowledge my blocks and mindsets around drinking”
I have so enjoyed this journey with Regan, I am a new person as a result of this quest. I now have new beliefs & mindsets that I keep working on daily, hourly. A kinder and more compassionate version of me has emerged over this journey, and I love her!
This quest has resulted in me finding the lost me, the me that has been hidden under the voices of doubt, fear or just lack of awareness that I get to run my life not the other voices in my head or family and people around me. When we wire ourselves to the future version of us, then we make different choices and we are already a different person!
Thank you Regan, thank you Mindvalley, thank you tribe!!!! ❤❤, I love you all and wish you a magical Christmas and hope our paths may cross one day at Mindvalley events.

“My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest”
Before taking this Quest I believed that the prerequisites of success were hard work, long hours, timing and a degree of luck; “1% inspiration and 99% perspiration” was my mantra. Trying to achieve success with this mindset was exhausting, frustrating and unsustainable.


I then discovered The Art of Manifesting … and was blown away.


The foundational teaching of focusing on your inner world to achieve has been transformative in the way I live my life. I now know that cultivating the feeling of already being in possession of that which you want, accelerates the manifestation of what you desire.


My family’s net income unexpectedly increased while I was taking the quest, and have discovered a path to manifest greater abundance in the year to come. But perhaps the biggest shift I experienced during this quest now knowing that I am worthy and deserving of abundance. Regan, I am eternally grateful to you, thank you :-)

“Now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered”
Before this program, I believed somewhat in manifestation but never knew how to do it, or if it was real, and the little bit I did know ended up being completely wrong! This Quest has not only taught me how to manifest and put me on the path to doing it the right way, but I was actually able to manifest what I had set at the beginning.
I never thought it would actually come true, but I committed myself to the process and gave it 100% every day. And now, my manifestation is showing up right before my eyes in ways I hadn’t even considered. It’s truly blowing my mind.
I had a financial goal for the end of the Quest, and different opportunities for selling my artwork started coming up, and the deals are coming out almost to the exact number I had set.
Not only that, but I have truly transformed into a better version of myself in these short weeks, more than I had in the last few years, that my spouse has even noticed.
I’m so excited for what’s to come next and so grateful for this program. Thank you.

“I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design”
I joined Mindvalley on New Year’s 2023. I am excited to share how life has significantly changed in the first 90 days of the year. Beginning with the Silva Method, I envisioned and transformed a dysfunctional personal relationship, into a loving, caring separation, allowing me the peace and serenity to follow my path, and my partner to choose his. In February while on the Art of Manifesting Quest I listed my intent to have a book written by May 2023, and have a speaking engagement booked by December 2023.
I have written a 50,000-word book, that is now in design, and a journal for Women seeking a deeper connection with themselves, also in design. Both will be uploaded via KDP Amazon self-publishing by May 1st.
I have booked a speaking engagement for May with the intent of having published books with me for sale.
Most importantly – this morning I changed my profile from ‘Document writer’ to ‘Author.’
Gratitude abounds!!!
