Filed under: Recipes is one of my fave places to find recipes. It is always updated and most things are easily adaptable. I like the fact that other people add their comments and thoughts. Being an Aussie site, the focus is on fresh, unprocessed food which is great for us GF folk. Their GF recipe collection has over 500 recipes.


A fave recipe.
Polenta & orange syrup cake

Ingredients (serves 10)
150g butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup (160g) caster sugar
1 orange, rind finely grated
6 eggs
200g Lucky almond meal
2/3 cup (180g) cornmeal (polenta)
Double cream, to serve
Orange syrup
1 cup (250ml) fresh orange juice
1 cup (220g) caster sugar

Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease and line the base and sides of a 20cm (base) round cake pan. Beat butter, sugar and orange rind with an electric beater, for 8-10 minutes or until pale and creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time. (The mixture will look a little curdled at this stage.)

Stir in almond meal and cornmeal. Spoon into the pan. Bake 40 minutes or until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Set aside for 5 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack.

For the syrup, stir the ingredients in a saucepan over a low heat until the sugar dissolves. Boil for 10 minutes or until thickens.

Use a fine skewer to pierce holes all over the cake top. Pour about 2/3 of the warm syrup over warm cake. Slice and serve with extra syrup.

This cake can also be served at room temperature. Keep in an airtight container up to 1 week.
