    Geniale Genie's Note:

    This is a healthi(er) cake although it is very dense and slightly dry. I has a very pleasant flavour, no overpowering sweetness. It is extremely simple to make. I have included alternative for diabetics, but the original recipe itself is probably suitable, in moderation, for diabetics. I got this from a cookbook written by the cook at the daycare centre I attended as an infant. If your kids don't like the tartness of lemon, you could easily substitute the lemon by an orange. *I have made a couple of suggestions at the bottom of the directions.

    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Cake

    • 3 tablespoons butter or 3 tablespoons margarine
    • 3 tablespoons brown sugar or 1 1/2 tablespoons Splenda brown sugar blend
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 cup cream of wheat (uncooked)
    • 1/2 cup ground almonds
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

    Glaze

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Beat the butter with brown sugar until creamy and until sugar is dissolved in the fat.
    2. 2
      Add eggs and beat well.
    3. 3
      Add all other ingredients and mix well.
    4. 4
      Pour in a grease 8x8 baking pan.
    5. 5
      Bake at 350F for 40-50 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
    6. 6
      Cool ten minutes, then pour hot glaze.
    7. 7
      To make glaze, mix all ingredients in a small saucepan and bring to a boil.
    8. 8
      Simmer for 10 minutes.
    9. 9
      Pour onto warm cake and set aside for at least 30 minutes before serving.
    10. 10
      *I like to turn the cake upside down and poke holes with a toothpick, then pour on half the glaze. Turn the cake over, poke holes on top, then pour remaining glaze (keeping most of the zest for the top). I then pour glaze left over at the bottom, back into the pan, then slowly re-pour on top. I repeat until no, or little, glaze is pooled at the bottom of the dish.
    11. 11
      *I usually add little extra lemon zest, which I grind in the blender. I then set aside most of the zest and grind my almonds in the same container, that way, some of the lemon goes into the cake batter.
    12. 12
      *I usually bake this in a convection toaster-oven and it is ready in 30 minute rather than 40-50.
