Hazelnut Latte cake (gluten free)

This is a friends recipe. I made it gluten free by using Doves Farm gluten and wheat free flour and ground almonds.

Nice with a cup of tea.

Gravy Queen: This is Purrfect

The style of your hazelnut cake is purrfect for a high tea or with an Earl Grey for breakfast before the speed walk on the beach ...

I would like this recipe ... when you can post it ... No rush ...

All my kindest,
Sempre, Ciao,
Margi.

I would like it too please Gravy Queen!

BTW, I apologize for not getting back to you about my GF baking. It had mixed results - the "banana blondies" were a hit (I will post recipe if you like) but my experiment with the chocolate tart not so much. Back to the drawing board on that one!

Here is the recipe :

Hazelnut Latte cake

175g flour
100g dark chocolate drops
2Tsp Baking powder
75g Caster sugar
2 Eggs Beaten
150 ml (1/4 pint) Sunflower oil
150 ml (1/4 pint) Semi skimmed milk
100g chopped hazelnuts
3 teaspoons of instant coffee
couple of drops of almond essence or hazelnut extract.
teaspoon of cinnamon
Beat eggs and sugar , add liquids , then dry ingredients and mix well


Bake at 170c for an hour

* Note - I used 100g gluten free flour and 75g of ground almonds. The mix is quite liquidy but it does work. Strangely though my choc chips sank to the bottom!

LP - Gluten free cooking is very hit and miss - keep going, its worth it .

GQ, try tossing the chips in some of that GF flour you used and see if it helps the chips stay in suspension.

Great idea Alix. I have to do this sometimes when making GF muffins.

GQ, this sounds good. Thanks. I like to make GF sometimes especially when taking something to work where I know there are folks there who must have GF.
