One evening on holiday we were strolling down Fowey high street and came across a delightful cake and tea place, www.thedwellinghouse for those that are interested, the only problem is my kids have food allergies. Milk and gluten! So we adored the fact that this place offered gluten and dairy free cake. Yum yum, my 10 month fussing eating baby ate a whole slice to himself. The lovely owner then proceeded to write out the recipe on a scrap of paper.....very exciting! Here was an old secret family recipe I thought! I
Just discovered its Nigella Lawson!! However it is a yummy cake regardless of allergies and so here it is.....
5 large or 7 medium Clementine’s
2 ½ cups of ground almonds
1 cup & 2 Table spoons Sugar
1 heaped tsp (gluten free) Baking powder
A cupful of blueberries
Pop Clementine’s in a pot of water (enough to cover) and boil for two hours. (steam for about half an hour if you’re in a rush)
Preheat over to 180c/375f
Pop Clementines, eggs, almonds, sugar in a food processor and blend till smooth.
Tip mixture into a 8inch pan and bake for about 40 mins. If you prod with a skewer and it comes out clean its done.
When cool, heat the blueberries in a pain with the 2tbsps of sugar and a little (splash) orange juice and tip over cake!
I’ll post a photo when I’ve finally made it!
