Gluten free fruit cake with ground almonds.

Hi everyone,

Here’s a gluten free fruit cake that I made using almond flour and gf flour. Almonds are a great source of nutrients including calcium so by adding almonds and other calcium rich foods we can look after our bone density while we eat. Dried fruit is also a good source of calcium.

Here’s the recipe, 50g ground almonds 250g self raising gluten free flour 250g butter 3 large eggs 150g dried mixed fruit with peel 140g brown sugar 1 tea spoon baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon mixed slice, mix thoroughly before baking at 170C for approx 45 mins until cooked through.

It was still warm when I had a slice so I had it with some custard.

Hi Hidden Your cake looks fantastic. I bet it is especially delicious with custard! Yum!

I'm glad I saw your post today, as I knew there was something I meant to do - I need to bake some muffins - so I'll get on with that now. :-)
