  • 5 large eggs
  • ½ teaspoon stevia glycerite (equals about 2 tablespoons sugar)
  • 6 tablespoons salted butter, melted and slightly cooled (3 oz), plus more for the pan
  • 1 ½ cups blanched finely ground almond flour (6 oz)
  • 1/4 cup coarse cornmeal (1 oz) (gluten-free if needed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder (gluten-free if needed)


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line the bottom of a small Pyrex baking dish with parchment paper and grease the bottom and the sides with butter. *
  • In a medium bowl, whisk the eggs with the stevia and the melted butter.
  • Whisk in the almond flour, cornmeal, salt, and baking powder.
  • If the batter is very thick and difficult to mix, add 1-2 tablespoons of water.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Smooth the top out with a rubber spatula.
  • Bake until the bread is golden and set, and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20-25 minutes.**
  • Cool 10 minutes in the pan on a wire rack before slicing and serving.



*I use a rectangle 7 X 5–inches oven-safe glass storage dish because I like the bread to be tall. These are the ones I have. They seem to have been discontinued, but these look similar. It’s fine to use a standard square 8-inch pan but then the bread will not be as tall.
**You'll probably need to bake for 20 minutes if using an 8-inch baking dish, for 25 minutes if using a smaller dish that produces a taller bread.
