So here is a quick cake recipe I tried for people who cannot have gluten in their diet. Also for the rest of us this squidgy cake is nice too!

Ingredients:

  • 2 oranges
  • 100ml olive oil
  • 180g caster sugar
  • 30g gluten free flour (either ready mixed or combination of your choice)
  • 150g almonds (ground)
  • 2 tsps baking powder (gluten free)
  • 5 eggs

For the drizzle:

  • 12 tbsps caster sugar
  • orange juice (squeezed from 2 oranges)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 100ml Rum

Method:

  1. Boil the oranges whole in water in a pan. Drain then leave to cool.
  2. Preheat oven to 180’c and grease a round baking tin.
  3. Cut up oranges once cool; then blitz into pulp in a food processor/blender.
  4. Mix together the following in a large bowl: olive oil, sugar, eggs till fluffy.
  5. To the mixing bowl add: baking powder, almonds, flour and fruit pulp.
  6. Pour batter into baking tin. Bake for just under an hour – check regularly to ensure middle in cooked through.
  7. Whilst this is cooking; melt the drizzle ingredients together (apart from Rum!) in a pan on hob. Bring to boil and add Rum. Take off the heat.
  8. Once cake is out fork or skewer the cake all over – pour over half the drizzle. Once the cake is cool, pour the second half over. Voila!

I decorated it with blueberries, crushed Hazelnuts and grated dark chocolate. I served this cake for friends recently and it stores well in freezer without the Rum drizzle that can be made at a later date then added.
