SERVING: 6 fondants

If you’re looking to impress a certain someone or just want to treat yourself, without compromising your lifestyle, then this recipe might just be your best friend. The outside is the most light and fluffy texture and as you dig into the centre, a warm and gooey caramel sauce oozes out. I am obsessed with this recipe, I usually serve it with a dairy free ice cream, but you can just about serve it with any ice cream of your choice.

Ingredients For The Cake:

  • 1 cup almond flour or finely ground almonds
  • 1/4 cup buckwheat flour
  • 1/3 + 2 T cacao powder
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3 T almond butter or nut butter of your choice
  • Pinch of salt

Ingredients For The Caramel Filling: 

  • 1/3 cup almond butter
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 3 T coconut oil
  • Pinch of salt


  • Preheat the oven to 180C and line a silicon muffin tray with coconut oil. I use a silicon tray as it is easy to take out the cooked fondants without breaking them.
  • Put all the ingredients for the caramel into a small pan and put over low heat and stir until you get a smooth and glossy mix. Place this in the freezer to firm up.
  • While the caramel is firming up in the freezer, mix all the ingredients for the fondant in a bowl, starting with the dry ingredients and gradually mixing the wet ingredients.
  • Spoon the fondant mixture into the muffin trays so that each hole is half full.
  • Take out the caramel mixture from the freezer and spoon the mixture and roll into 6 balls (or more if you have extra)
  • Place the caramel balls on top of the half filled fondant mixture into the 6 holes.
  • Pour the remaining fondant mix on top of the caramel balls so that they are covered.
  • Smooth out the top of each fondant with the back of a spoon. I usually dip my spoon into some water as its easier to smooth it out.
  • Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for 15 mins.
  • Allow it to cool before pushing them out form the bottom.
  • You can serve it with dairy free ice cream of your choice or just enjoy as is 😊
  • You can use any nut butter of your choice instead of almond butter.
