Recipe type: Gluten Free Lemon Cake
  • 220 g of butter
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 1½ cup of almond meal
  • ¾ teaspoon of baking powder - gluten free
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • ½ cup of fresh lemon juice
  • 2 eggs
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 degrees ( 350F) and line a cake tin with baking paper.
  2. Using an electric mixer, cream the butter and the sugar
  3. Gradually add one egg in at a time and mix
  4. Zest one lemon and add to the mixture and combine.
  5. Add in the almond meal and baking powder and mix
  6. Tip - I sprinkle some extra lemon zest on the base of the baking tin
  7. Spoon into a cake tin (a loaf tin) and bake in the oven for 40 to 45 mins.
  8. The cake will cook to a delicious golden brown and have sweet, chewy edges.
  9. Check to see if it is cooked by using a toothpick and if it comes out clean, it is cooked.
  10. Leave the cake in the tin to cool and using a chopstick, poke holes in the cake and then pour the lemon juice over the cake. The cake will absorb the lemon juice while it cools.
  11. (It is best eaten once it has cooled)
