Lemon Drizzle Cake has been one of my family’s favourite cakes for years now. It is loved so much that my daughters have even asked me a few times to make it for their birthday instead of any other creamy or chocolate birthday cakes.
The recipe for the very much loved cake comes from a magazine from many years ago, and it has been perfect until I thought of making it healthier and gluten free. I was a bit anxious about the result of replacing the regular flour with a mixture of gluten-free flours. Naturally, when you have a recipe with ingredients that work perfectly you worry that changing anything may destroy the final outcome. In the case of Lemon Drizzle Cake, I was afraid that using gluten free flour mixture could make this cake dry. I thought about it so much that I actually dreamt the solution: ground almonds! They give moisture to the cake so it is equally delicious as the regular version but can also be enjoyed by people who can’t tolerate gluten.
