Over Easter I was on a mission to perfect gluten free hot cross buns but I failed. I tried a handful of new recipes and whilst they all tasted great I still wasn’t satisfied with the texture. They all just ended up too dense and lacking the light fluffy texture of normal gluten containing ones. Better luck next year I hope!
I also made a delicious spiced honey swiss roll for our family lunch on Easter Sunday, but sadly I didn’t get the chance to take a photo before it was devoured.
So… fast forward a month (wow time has just flown by) and here we are finally with a new recipe! This cake tastes great, is super easy to make (like most of my recipes) and it’s a delightful twist on the common orange & almond cake often available for gluten free folk in cafes, restaurants etc.
Give me a shout if you end up making it, or feel free to send me your gluten free hot cross bun recipes if you have a really good one!
