Let's get started and make this yummy almond flour cake!
- First, crack the eggs in the large bowl and mix them with the sugar. (1)
- Then, melt the butter and add it to the egg/sugar mix. (2)
- Next, add the baking powder, baking soda and the flour, mix well until it is fully incorporated. (3)
- Now, add the almond flour and mix some more. (4)
- In a small bowl, put a little less than half of the cake batter and add in the chocolate / cocoa powder and the red food colouring. Stir well.
- In the larger bowl, add the almond extract.
- Lastly to assemble this easy marble cake: pour some of the almond or vanilla cake batter in the cake pan, then some of the red batter and alternate to make cake layers. Using a knife, create the swirls.
TIP: If you want an extra vibrant red, add another 2 or 3 drops.
TIP: Remember to grease your pan to make sure your marble bundt cake comes out easily.
One last step, you need to bake the cake in the oven for 30 minutes or until golden brown. Once done, you will need to let cool down at room temperature before trying to flip it onto a plate.
How can you resist this sweet and moist almond flour cake?
Look at this cute swirl between the red velvet and the almond cake!
SUGGESTION: Make a super simple sweet lemon icing using lemon juice and fresh lemon zest if you have and drizzle on top of the cake. You can also top it up with some sliced almonds.
Of course, if you want to be traditional with the red velvet part of the bundt cake, you can use cream cheese icing.
A red velvet cake is known for its vibrant red color and the subtle taste of cocoa powder. Also, it typically calls for vinegar and buttermilk to enhance the flavor, color, and moisture. Here, I adapted it since this cake has the perfect moisture thanks to the almond flour.
Absolutely, bundt cakes are known for their shape. Bundt in German means ''Gathering of people'' and this shape makes the cake very shareable. However, note that if you use another cake pan, you might need to adjust the cooking time (maybe a few more minutes).
Alternate the pouring of the batter in the pan or if you are 2, pour simultaneously. Then, using a knife, swirl the 2 batters in a pan into a circular movement.
You can store the cake in an air-tight container for 3-4 days.
This recipe was developed with almond flour and all-purpose flour. Instead, try this flourless almond cake.

It was really moist and the almond taste was perfect!
Thank you so much Tom!
Any suggestions on substitutions if I don't have almond flour?
Hi Catty, unfortunately, the highlight of the recipe is the almond flour and I develop the recipe around it. Maybe save it for later when you have almond flour? Worth the wait :)
Can this cake be made with all Almond flour?
I tried when recipe testing but it did not work out as well. If you are looking for almond flour only cake, check my ''Flourless Almond Cake'', very popular for good reasons!

How much Cocoa powder? I don't see that listed.
Oops, thank you Melinda for catching that. I updated the recipe card!
