While I’m on holidays I have a few recipes from my lovely readers to share with you. Here is the first one and I’ll definitely be giving this a go when I get home. Looks delicious. This recipe comes from Laura who tells me this………….
I adore your blog. I’m a mother of two.. a 3.5 year old boy and my little girl who was 2 months old last Sunday (wow that has gone fast). I love to bake, especially with my little boy. My father has coeliac disease and is gluten intolerant. I thought I’d share with you one of the recipes I make for him, when we are having a family occasion.
Orange, Coconut and Almond Cakes
125g Unsalted Butter
1 Cup Vanilla Sugar (or White)
1 Cup Ground Almonds
1 Cup Rice Flour
1/2 Cup Coconut
1 Tablespoon (GF) Baking Powder
and some Icing Sugar (GF) to dust.
In a saucepan, cover the oranges with water. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer for approximately 15 minutes or until the oranges are soft. Drain and when cool to the touch, roughly chop into chunks. Discard any seeds.
Preheat oven and prepare a cupcake tray with liners.
Place butter, sugar and eggs into a food processor and blitz until combined. Add cooled oranges bit by bit and process until oranges are chopped and mixed in.
In a separate bowl, Mix the almond meal, rice flour, coconut and baking powder together. Add to the the processor and mix until just combined.
This recipe can also be used to make a cake. Just pour the mixture into a 20cm round cake tin, lined with a baking paper base. Bake for 50-55 minutes.
Thank you so much Laura for your delicious recipe. If my other lovely readers would love to share a recipe then just drop me an email to email@example.com with your recipe, photo and a bit about you. I’d especially love recipes for special diets like gluten free, dairy free and so on.
