Is it possible to substitute flour for ground almonds in a recipe ?
I have a friend who has a nut allergy and I do a lovely blueberry cake but the recipe uses ground almonds.
If she drops in for a coffee I can't give her some of the cake.
Can I use flour instead?

It won't work. They're completely different in composition.

it will depend on the quantitiy of ground almonds in te cake. If it is not too much and mainly for texture you may be able to use semolina instead?

250 grammes ground almonds
250 grammes sugar
5 eggs
Are the main ingredients.

A cheat for ground almonds is ground rice and almond essence. You could try that with just ground rice and not the almond essence.
