Easy Sous Vide Cinnamon Almond Cake

Anova Culinary

This perfectly portion-controlled cake tastes like a Snickerdoodle and a cinnamon bun joined forces to create a perfectly moist yet fluffy little cake. It also happens to be flourless, made with almond meal, and easily accommodates special diets like Keto and Paleo with the substitutions listed! You could make these for a dinner party, or to have a handful of low-carb treats throughout your week. AND, you could get even a little more creative by using Pumpkin Pie spice, ginger, or Quatre Epices, or more for a "spicier" option!
