Quicksmart Lemon Cake

This is by far, the best lemon cake I have ever tasted, if I do say so myself!

The flour that I use is Doves Gluten and Wheat Free, self raising flour mix which is amazing! It works just like it contains the gluten but obviously without!

125g Doves Farm Self Raising Flour
125g Caster Sugar
100g Margarine
2 Eggs
1 tbsp Lemon Zest
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
1 tbsp Lemon Curd
1 tbsp Poppy Seeds


Preheat oven to 190 degrees, 170 fan, gas mark 5.
Place all ingredients into a bowl and mix together until smooth.
Pour ingredients into a cake tin lined with greaseproof/baking paper.
Place into oven for 40-45 minutes.
Coat the top with lemon curd, around 2tbsp, and enjoy straight away or once cool.

Recipe 365

Hi,  thanks for joining me.

I will be creating recipes for you to try including both savoury and sweet dishes which are gluten free.
I myself am wheat intolerant and my boyfriend is gluten intolerant. This made me wonder how many people can't eat gluten... apparently there's quite a few of us! So let's get cooking the foods that we can eat.
Trust me, they taste spectacular.

This blog has been created as my project 365, whereby I will be posting recipe's and not photographs. Although I will aim to provide you photos! Also I will post 365 recipes this year, but I might cheat and give you a few at a time...

If there's anything you'd like a recipe for, let me know and I will see what I can do for you!

Let's get Gluten Free cooking!
