Honey Cake (serves 10-12)
A gently spiced cake, perfect for warming you up in Winter
This cake is traditionally served at Jewish New Year (around September or October), with wishes for a sweet year to come, but we think it's great at any time through Autumn and Winter, with its warming spices and a rich depth of flavour from the honey. A sprinkling of flaked almonds on top adds a pleasing crunch to the cake, whilst ground almonds in the sponge ensure a perfect cakey texture. This cake keeps very well, and the flavour will mature and develop...if you can resist eating it all in one go that is!
Gluten-free flour blend (rice, potato, tapioca starch; xanthan gum), salted butter (milk), free-range whole eggs, caster sugar, raw heather honey, ground almonds, golden syrup, gluten-free baking powder (raising agents sodium dihydrogen diphosphate and sodium hydrogen carbonate, rice flour), ground cinnamon, ground ginger; flaked almonds.
Your cakes were a total triumph at my party. Fabulous. I didn’t tell anyone without the gluten problem they were gluten-free & no-one had the slightest idea. Absolutely delicious. Thanks so much. Absolutely worth every penny.
Coconut cakes are amazing! Thanks.
I've only been GF for a small part of my life but have always found it hard to find yummy treats that taste good. However I was lucky enough to meet the woman behind these bakes and was treated to an entire cake made by her for a party and I can honestly say it's the most delicious cake I've EVER eaten. That includes any cake I'd had before my GF days! Chocolate & walnut cake..it's the best.
All the cakes went down extremely well at my party, thanks again.
