this cake was tasty. i made this cake with gluten free flour - the cake deflated when i pulled it out of the oven and next time i would try adding baking powder instead of the yeast. it was quite dense and i think that the yeast either didn't dissolve properly or it was due to the gluten free flour. i also feel that the baking powder would help make the cake lighter. definately need to buy an obst tortenboden as i just put the custard on top of the cake with the strawberries and they were moving about whilst putting the jam on top!

My DH really enjoyed this and I finally got to use my flan tin. I brushed the flan with orange based liqueur before decorating and used a flan jelly glaze I made this for Aust/NZ Comfort Food tag game.
