Gluten-Free Christmas Cake
Gluten-free Christmas cake can taste just as good as the original recipe - and doesn't have to be difficult to make either! For those who have to follow a gluten-free diet, eating home-made cakes can be quite a challenge as many are made with wheat flour which is full of gluten. Nowadays it’s not too difficult to find gluten-free flours – most large supermarkets will have an aisle dedicated to special diet products. This Gluten-free Christmas cake uses both gluten-free flour and baking powder and the only thing to remember when baking with these products is to add a little extra liquid to the recipe. Store the cake in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks.
