  • 80 grams blanched almond flour
  • 35 grams teff flour
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 large egg whites
  • 7 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup raspberries


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Rub butter inside all of the holes of 12 inch muffin pan. (Or line with paper liners, but I like mine without this. It gives them a very clean look.)
  • Whisk together the almond flour, teff flour, cornstarch, sugar, and salt. Whisk in the egg whites vigorously until the batter is smooth, then whisk in the melted, cooled butter in 3 additions. Whisk in vanilla. Fill each muffin cup a little more than 1/2 full with batter. 
  • With a fork, coarsely mash the raspberries so that are like a rough jam. Strain to get rid of some of the excess liquid, then put 1 tablespoon crushed raspberries into the middle of each cake. 
  • Bake for 25 minutes, until edges are golden brown. Remove from oven and let cool, then use a thin knife to run around the edges and gently pull up on each cake to remove. Store in airtight container.
