Cardamom Yogurt Almond Cake with Strawberries and Pistachios for Garnish (Dairy-free and gluten-free)

Nothing quite like a moist cardamom cake. I just love cardamom and its bright yet still spicy flavor. I think you'll like this cake too!

The only flour used in this cake is almond flour making this treat protein-rich! If you can't find almond flour in store, consider purchasing online (which can save you money). Amazon sells several brandsof which Blanched Almond Meal Flour, 5 lbs has great reviews.

Serve with strawberries and chopped pistachios for a pretty presentation! A lovely treat for Mother's Day or Easter.

Cardamom Yogurt Almond Cake with Strawberries and Pistachios
2 cups almond flour
1/4 cup flaxseed
2 tsp baking powder
6 cardamom pods
1/4 tsp salt

1 1/4 cup coconut yogurt (I used So Delicious plain coconut yogurt)
2 eggs
1/2 cup evaporated cane sugar
Zest from 1 Lemon
2 tsp vanilla

For garnish: Strawberries and Pistachios

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Break pods of cardamom and save seeds within. Grind flaxseeds and cardamom seeds in a coffee grinder.
3. Combine dry ingredients. Combine wet ingredients in seperate bowl.
4. Whisk wet into dry and keep stirring until well-incorporated.
5. Bake in pie plate or 9" cake pan for 40 minutes.



  1. Oh my goodness, this looks delicious and gorgeous! Do you know if it would also work well with Coconut Flour?

    1. Thank you for the comment!
      I'm not sure about the coconut flour - it behaves very differently than any other flour and it takes considerably less coconut flour and a lot more eggs to make anything substantial. Let me know if you try it out!
