Sharlotka With Almond Flour

a minute read

Sharlotka is a traditional Russian apple cake that is typically made with wheat flour. However, you can easily adapt the recipe to be gluten-free by using almond flour as a substitute. Here's a basic recipe for making a gluten-free Sharlotka with almond flour:


  • 4-5 medium-sized apples (preferably tart ones like Granny Smith)
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar (you can adjust the sweetness according to your preference)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • Pinch of salt
  • Powdered sugar for dusting (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (350°F) and grease a 9-inch round cake pan or springform pan with butter or cooking spray.
  2. Peel, core, and slice the apples into thin slices. You can also leave the skin on if you prefer.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, beat the eggs and sugar together until well combined. Add the vanilla extract and mix again.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the almond flour, baking powder, and a pinch of salt.
  5. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, stirring gently until you have a smooth batter.
  6. Add the sliced apples to the batter and mix until the apple slices are evenly coated.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan, spreading it out evenly.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for about 35-40 minutes or until the top is golden brown and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  9. Once baked, remove the cake from the oven and let it cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Optionally, dust the top with powdered sugar before serving.

Your gluten-free Sharlotka with almond flour is now ready to be enjoyed! The almond flour gives it a delicious nutty flavor and a moist texture, making it a delightful treat for those who are gluten-sensitive or looking for alternative flour options. Enjoy!
