Oooooooh I love Lemon Drizzle cake as it's so refreshing. It's not too heavy, creamy or stodgy, just a nice light sponge to satisfy that cake craving.
I thought I would have a go at making a gluten free one and so glad I did as it was lovely. I was a bit worried as I decided to make it in my multi cooker instead of the conventional oven but it worked.
So here goes with the ingredients.......
You will need:
8oz (250g) softened butter
8oz (250g) caster sugar
8oz (250g) gluten free self raising flour (I used Aldi's)
2 tsps baking powder
4 eggs beaten
grated rind and juice of 1 lemon
for the drizzle you will need:
grated rind and juice of 2 lemons
3.5oz (100g) caster sugar
How I made it:
I greased my multi cooker bowl but if you want to do it as a loaf grease a 900g ( 2lb) loaf tin. Pre heat oven to 180 degrees C (gas mark 4).
I put all the ingredients into food processor and mixed until smooth, you could also do this in a large mixing bowl and beat with a wooden spoon or a hand held electric mixer.
I poured my mixture into the multi cooker and set it to bake, you can pour it into your loaf tin if using one, bake for 35-40 mins until golden and firm.
I turned the cake out onto a wire rack and pricked some holes into the sponge using a fork. I then poured my drizzle mix over the cake and left to cool..
That's it! Easy eh? All you have to do now is eat it. It was light but moist enough to stay together. The original recipe was taken from a lovely cook book I have called 'Great Gluten Free Baking by Louise Blair. I will leave a link (affiliated) at the end of this post. It has some great bakes in there, classic cakes and traybakes and all gluten free. All I did was swap the flour for a standard gluten free self raising for this recipe, it does state brown rice flour in the original recipe but it's up to you and like I said earlier, I swapped the oven for my multi cooker.
Have a try anyway and see what you think
Here's the book on Amazon.......Thank you for reading, I'll be back tomorrow for Autism Support Saturday.
