Boiled lemon almond cake (gluten free)

So much awareness about people who have to follow gluten free diets .This is a gluten free cake. When I invite people over for a meal I always ask if they are allergic or do not like something because after lovingly preparing a meal it will not be such good news to know that your guest cannot eat or else say nothing but you see him play around with the food instead of enjoying it. This is like the boiled orange almond cake but made with lemons. I like them both.


2 lemons,washed and boiled for 2 hours.

250g ground almonds

6 eggs

250g sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon baking powder.

3 tablespoons strawberry jam

1 small carton whipping cream

fresh strawberries to decorate.



Preheat oven 175 C and line the base of a spring form tin and grease the sides.

Cut the cooled lemons and remove the pips.

Put the lemon s in a food processor and blend until smooth.

With a hand mixer beat eggs and sugar until frothy and add the vanilla essence and lemon puree’.

Then mix in the ground almonds and baking powder and mix well.

Put the mixture in the prepared tin and bake until its lightly golden ,check center with a skewer or  toothpick .

Let it stand for about ten minutes then remove the spring form.

While still warm spread with melted jam.

Let it cool completely before decorating.

Whip the cream and cover the cake and then decorate with the strawberries.

I served with extra cream and strawberries .
