Gluten Free Recipe: Lemon/Polenta Cake

‘My policy on cake is pro having it and pro eating it.’ -Boris Johnson


This cake is good with icing or as I like it best,with cream cheese and marmalade.

You will need:

  • 1 Cup Butter, room temperature (or margarine)
  • 1 Cup white sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Cup almond flour
  • 1/2 Cup polenta
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 3 lemons, zest & juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Line a cake pan with parchment paper and pre-heat oven at 325F.

Mix ingredients well and bake for 1 hour. If not done entirely cover with a piece of aluminum foil and bake for another 15 minutes. Cool for at least 30 minutes.


Deze cake is lekker met glazuur of zoal ik t het lekkerste vind, met roomkaas en marmelade.

Je hebt nodig:

  • 225 gram boter/margarine op kamertemperatuur,
  • 100 gram suiker
  • 3 eieren
  • 100 gram amandelbloem
  • 50 gram polenta
  • 1 theelepel bakpoeder
  • 3 citroenen, de geraspte schil en t sap
  • 1/2 theelepel zout

Bekleed een laag cakeblik met bakpapier en verwarm de oven voor 175C.

Mix alle ingrediënten en bak ongeveer een uur. Als de cake nog niet helemaal gaar is, bedek t dan met een stukje aluminium folie en bak nog eens een extra 15 minuten.

Love and Liefs, Johanna

  1. Now I am not sponsored by Bob..but Bob’s Red Mills sells a good almond flour for a decent price at almost all supermarkets in the US and Canada. And thank you for the lovely compliment!

  2. Wauw, what a great photo: my ears are flapping with pride: Thank You!!! ( I am so vain…I printed the picture and it hangs on my pin board in my workroom) Thanks and ♥ Johanna
