GF Citrus Drizzle Bundt Cake 🍋

Gluten Free – Vegan – Refined Sugar Free

Preparation Time: 15-20 mins

Time: Approx 1 hr Heat: 180°/160° fan Gas 4

This drizzle cake is based on my lemon drizzle recipe, but uses other citrus zest & juice. I used Ruby Grapefruit & Clementine.

I’ve used a small Bundt tin as I wanted to make my own version of a Roscón de Reyes (a special cake in Spain for the 3 Kings’ celebration on 5/6 January).

** You may want to try another gluten free flour or refined sugar alternative that you have experience baking with.

Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 150g dairy-free margarine
  • 175g Coconut Sugar
  • 200g Gluten Free flour of your choice (I used the following blend: 100g rice, 50g quinoa, 25g chickpea & 25g oat flours)
  • 2 TSP Baking Powder
  • ½ TSP Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 50g Ground Almonds
  • Pinch Salt
  • 150ml Almond of other Plant Milk
  • Zest of 2 Clementines finely grated
  • Juice from 1 Clementine for the cake (keep the rest for drizzle below)

Drizzle: (uses Icing Sugar but you can replace with non refined)


🍋 6 tbs icing sugar

🍋100ml mix of Pink Grapefruit & Clementine juice added to the sugar a little at a time until desired thickness

Method:

1) Cream the Margarine & Coconut Sugar together

2) Add the Plant Milk & mix well

3) Sieve half the Flour, Bicarb, Baking powder and Ground Almond into the Margarine, Sugar & Milk mix until well incorporated

4) Add juice from 1 Clementine & zest from 2 & mix well (* keep remaining juice from other Clementine for the icing).

5) Sieve the remaining flour, bicarb, baking powder & ground almond & mix well into the bake batter

6) Working quickly tip into the greased or lined cake tin & spread evenly. Put into the oven.

7) Bake for 1hr or until a skewer comes out clean. The cake should spring when pressed gently.

8) Leave the cake to cool. Meanwhile mix the juice of remaining 1 Clementine with approx half a grapefruit (to make 100ml) with powdered icing sugar.

When the cake has cooled somewhat, make holes in it using a skewer & then pour over the *sugar/citrus juice mixture.
