healthy dessert recipes


  • 1¾ cups sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup FODMAP Free cake flour, sifted
  • 12 egg whites (the closer to room temperature the better)
  • ⅓ cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon clear vanilla or almond extract *
  • 1½ teaspoons cream of tartar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Allow the eggs to come to room temperature.
  3. In a food processor, process sugar for about 2 minutes or until it is superfine consistency.
  4. Set aside half of the sugar.
  5. Sift the remaining half of the sugar with the salt and FODMAP Free cake flour.
  6. In a large bowl, use a balloon whisk to thoroughly combine egg whites, water, extract and cream of tartar. Whisk for 2 minutes.
  7. After whisking for 2 minutes, switch to a hand mixer and slowly add the other half of the sugar, beating constantly on medium speed. Beat until medium stiff peaks form.
  8. Lightly sprinkle some of the flour mixture onto the egg whites (dust the top of the foam).
  9. Gently fold in the flour using a rubber spatula. Continue until all of the flour mixture is incorporated.
  10. Carefully spoon mixture into an ungreased angle food cake pan. **
  11. Bake for 35 minutes before checking for doneness with a wooden toothpick or skewer. (When inserted halfway between the inner and outer wall, the skewer should come out dry).
  12. Cool upside down on cooling rack for at least an hour before removing from pan.

Helpful hint: Fresh eggs are the easiest to separate.

  • 1½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1½ teaspoons pure almond extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose gluten free flour
  • 1½ teaspoons xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • ¾ cup shredded coconut


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F.
  2. Spray the sides of 2 9-inch round cake pans with non-stick cooking spray.
  3. Line the bottom of each pan with wax paper and then lightly spray the pan again.
  4. In a medium bowl, sift together the gluten free flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, nutmeg, cloves and salt.
  5. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar on medium-high speed with an electric mixture, until light and fluffy (approximately 5 minutes).
  6. Separate the eggs, placing the egg whites in a small bowl and adding the yolks to the butter/sugar mixture.
  7. With the mixer on medium speed, beat until the egg yolks are well combined.
  8. Add the vanilla and almond extracts and mix well. The extracts may make the mixture look curdled—don’t worry!
  9. With clean beaters, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form and set aside.
  10. With the mixer on low speed, alternately add the dry ingredients and coconut milk to the batter. Mix until well combined (approximately 5 minutes).

  12. Pour the batter evenly into the 2 prepared cake pans, carefully spreading it to the edges of the pan and smoothing the top with the rubber spatula.

  14. Cool cake completely before icing.
