Print Recipe


  • 2 cups mixed berries frozen or fresh
  • 6 1/2 Tbsp unsalted butter plus more to grease the pan
  • 4 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour plus more to dust the pan
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • Powdered sugar for topping


  • Preheat the oven to 350 F.
  • Line the bottom of a 6-inch round cake pan with parchment paper, grease the pan with butter, and then dust it lightly with flour.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together the almond flour, the all-purpose flour, and the sugar. Set aside.
  • In a smaller bowl, beat the egg whites and a pinch of salt together until they reach stiff peaks. Then, gently fold the whipped egg whites into the flour and sugar mixture. Set aside.
  • In a small saucepan, over medium heat, melt and brown the butter. Once the butter is golden brown, slightly frothy, and obtains a nutty aroma, remove it from the heat immediately. Cool the butter for a couple of minutes then stir in the vanilla extract. Gently mix the butter mixture into the previous batter until it is homogeneous.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan.
  • If you are using fresh berries, wash and dry them well. If you are using frozen berries, there is no need to wash them.
  • Evenly place the fresh or frozen berries on top of the batter in the pan.
  • Bake the cake for 75 to 90 minutes. To check the doneness of the cake, insert a toothpick in the center of the cake, there should not be any liquid batter on the toothpick, but it should have some residue. Make sure not to overbake it!
  • Once the cake is baked, let it cool for 20-30 minutes and carefully remove it from the baking pan. Transfer the cake onto a serving platter and dust the cake with powdered sugar. Then, serve.
