Gluten free cake? Absolutely!
Before you cringe at the idea of potato in a cake, give this a go. It honestly is a ‘secret’ (and healthy) ingredient which works as a gluten substitute!
YOU WILL NEED:
200g caster sugar (or substitute all-natural xylitol to make it sugar-free)
175g ground almonds, polenta or gluten-free flour
250g cold mashed potato
Zest of 3 lemons
2 tsp gluten-free baking powder (Tesco and Supercook both do one)
4 tbsp granulated sugar
Juice of 1 lemon
Oven temperature: 180/160 fan/Gas 4
I was looking for a gluten-free recipe for lemon drizzle cake and am so pleased I found this. I made sure to make extra mash for it, and it's such an easy cake to make. Highly recommended.
Sounds delicious - and nutritious, and I LOVE the idea of using up leftover mash in cake.
