If you’re in the mood for something apricotty – perhaps inspired by our blog about amazing Turkish apricots, or our special offer on apricots this month – then this recipe might be just what you need. It’s a simple gluten-free cake that ticks many of the allergy boxes, is great fun for a party and looks very special.

Gluten Free Almond and Apricot cake - made the NGF way!

The icing is tricky, but not impossible, as the picture indicates.

Ingredients

Method

For feast days and festivals

  1. Mix together the margarine, sugar, ground almonds, gluten-free flour and cocoa. Add as much liquid (soya milk or alternative) as needed, to make a soft mixture.
  2. Divide the mixture into four and bake in four sponge tins. Cut the last layer into 16 pieces when half baked, then bake it until done (total baking time: about 10-20 minutes).
  3. Spread the cooled cake layers with the jam and the whipped cream/milk.
  4. Glaze the 16 small pieces of cake with chocolate. Place these decoratively on top of the layered cake.
  5. Decorate with whole almonds or dried fruit on top of the 16 cake pieces.
