So, I think it’s time we made something sweet, right? It’s a complete myth that gluten-free baking can only be done well by a professional. There are some things you can make with no flour at all like cookies, fudge brownies, and oatmeal bars. But what happens when all you want to do is have a nice fork-full of cake? All you need is to get a really good gluten-free flour blend. (A little tip: the more unknown the brand, the higher the likelihood that the flour blend will be better. Try to steer clear of the big brands trying to embrace the gluten-free craze.)
This recipe is not entirely mine. I was on a farm in Spain when I first tried it. One of my hosts made it to have with coffee, and I could not stop eating it. So, I obviously begged her for the recipe. The best part is, it’s incredibly simple! My addition to the recipe is the flavors, which can be altered to your liking as long as you stick to the basic recipe proportions.
The secret to making this cake is one thing: a personal-sized yogurt. Not only is the yogurt used in the recipe, but the container is your measurement tool for everything! Amazing, right?
- 1 Personal-Sized Yogurt (peach)
- 3 Eggs
- Olive Oil
- Gluten-Free Flour Blend (or regular flour for those who can tolerate wheat)
- Baking Powder
- Raspberry Preserves
- 3 Peaches
Preheat the oven to 350.
First, dump the contents of the yogurt in a bowl. Rinse out the container and dry it.
In a separate bowl, mix together 3 room-temperature eggs and 2 containers-full of sugar.
Then, add the yogurt and 1 container-full of olive oil. Mix together well.
Finally, stir in 3 containers-full of flour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder.
Now that you have your mixture, line a 9-inch circular pan with parchment paper. Pour your mixture into the lined pan and cook in the pre-heated oven for about 25 minutes (but check on it after 20 and do the toothpick test to see if its done.)
While it’s cooking, slice your peaches in thin crescents.
When it is done, let it cool. Then, spread the raspberry preserves generously over the top of the cake. Finally, layer the peaches on top. When you’re ready to serve, take the parchment paper off the cake and enjoy! Goes best with tea or coffee, and good friends or family.
Happy baking everyone!
