·1 2/3 cups (200 g) plain gluten free flour blend (I have
used a simple shop-bought.)
·3/4 cup (65 g) almond flour
·1/2 tsp xanthan gum
·3 tsp baking powder
·1 cup (200 g) granulated sugar
·pinch of salt
·2 sticks (226 g) unsalted butter, softened
·zest of 3 lemons
·4 medium eggs, room temperature
·1/2 cup (120 mL) milk, room temperature
·1 tsp vanilla paste (or 2 tsp vanilla extract)
·6 tbsp. lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
1.Pre-heat the oven to 355 ºF (180 ºC) and line bread tin or grease proof moulds/muffin form pan.
2.In a large bowl, sift together the gluten free flour, almond
flour, xanthan gum and baking powder. Add the sugar and salt, and mix until
3.Add the softened butter and, using either a stand mixer with the
paddle attachment or a hand mixer with the double beater attachments, work the
butter into the dry ingredients until you get a texture resembling coarse
breadcrumbs in size.
4.Add the lemon zest. In a separate bowl, mix the eggs, milk,
vanilla and lemon juice. Add the wet ingredients to the dry butter mixture, and
whisk/mix well until no flour clumps remain and everything is evenly
5.Transfer the cake batter into the prepared tin, smooth out the
top, and bake in the pre-heated oven at 355 ºF (180 ºC) for about 1 hour or
until risen, golden brown on top and an inserted toothpick comes out clean.
(35min if using small moulds)
If the cake starts
browning too quickly or too much, cover it with aluminium foil and continue
baking until done.
6.Allow to cool in tin for about 10 minutes, then remove from the
tin, and allow to cool completely on a cooling rack.
GOD GRANT ME THE SERENITY TO ACCEPT THE THINGS I CANNOT CHANGE; COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS I CAN; AND WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE.
LIVING ONE DAY AT A TIME; ENJOYING ONE MOMENT AT A TIME; ACCEPTING HARDSHIPS AS THE PATHWAY TO PEACE; TAKING, AS HE DID, THIS SINFUL WORLD AS IT IS, NOT AS I WOULD HAVE IT; TRUSTING THAT HE WILL MAKE ALL THINGS RIGHT IF I SURRENDER TO HIS WILL; THAT I MAY BE REASONABLY HAPPY IN THIS LIFE AND SUPREMELY HAPPY WITH HIM FOREVER IN THE NEXT. AMEN.
