*Reviewed for Recipe Tag game in Aussie Forum* Thanks Tisme this was an easy cake to make and tasted great too. I used 1/2 cup purchased blended gluten-free SR Four with 1/4 cup brown rice flour and 1/4 cup almond meal with a little extra baking powder. I also used a silicon baking pan so didn't need to line with paper. Made a really good cake ....I'm guessing would be even better with regular wheat flour. Spot on with the cooking time. Photo being posted :)
Fantastic! Made my cake with glutenfree flour and it was the best GF, egg free, dairy free cake I have ever made. Kept very well too. Children found the flavours too much as the dates here (Oman) have really intense flavour but my husband and I loved it and pleased to find some grown-up GF, egg/dairy free recipes. If you don't know Omani dates are the best in the world.
