Nutty and nice

I seem to be coming across more and more really delicious gluten-free recipes which I cook even though I’m fortunate not to have difficulties with gluten. I started baking them when  a new person joined my writing group two years ago and after buying some gluten-free biscuits which were disgusting, I started to find recipes which I could make. Just today, at another group, someone had brought a really yummy orange cake which I was amazed to find was made without flour! I haven’t yet got her recipe, but I’ll share it when I do… meanwhile here is a very nice, incredibly easy, with only two main ingredients… yes two…

Gluten Free Peanut Butter Loaf Cake

  • 280g peanut butter smooth or crunchy
  • 3 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 tsp cider vinegar
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • 2 dessert spoons sugar (brown or white whichever you prefer)
  • (for a Christmas version add 2 tbsp mincemeat)
  1. Beat eggs and peanut butter together until really smooth and mixed in (and mincemeat if you’re feeling festive)
  2. add the other ingredients and beat again
  3. pour into a well-greased small loaf tin (or a larger one and have a shallower loaf!)
  4. cook for 30-40 minutes at 350°, 180°, gas mark 4

You might want to add a little more sugar – not to make a sweet loaf, but just to elevate the taste. I also found it a little dry and put butter on it – or maybe I’m just greedy!
