Easy bake: Almond, Blackberry and Cardamom Cake (Gluten Free)

IMG_6068Hi Hi!

Is anyone still reading this old blog of mine?!  Once again work and life have forced my wee corner of the internet to take a back seat and once again I can only apologise!  Does anyone else ever feel like face-planing the bed when they get home from work?

Between work and sleep I managed to stay awake just long enough to shoe horn in a few wee trips here and there setting sail in Scotland and taking a wee jaunt to Iceland – more on those later!  I’ve accumulated lots of wee bits to share with you so you can hopefully hear a lot more noise coming from Tales of Adventure in the coming weeks.

As the title of this post suggests I want to share a gorgeous little gluten free number with you – and just in time for Father’s Day!  If you follow me on Instagram you’ll already know that this recipe is a big hit with my dog, Bob, even though he had no chance of snaffling any of it.  Poor Bob!

Again, it’s taken from my go-to baking book and, again, it was a great big HIT with my family after Sunday lunch.  It’s light, fruity and perfect for Spring teas and Summer evenings after a saintly dinner.  I mean, it has fruit inside *and* on top so it has to count for at least one of your five a day, no? 😉

We enjoyed ours served with some creme fraiche.  It was a nice change from fresh cream but either are great accompaniments really.  Let me know if you try this recipe in the comments below and tell me how you enjoy yours!

For those of you who prefer to have a text-based recipe in front of you click here.

Otherwise you can join Bob and I in the kitchen below.

Happy baking and see you next time!xx
