I’ve had this recipe for years and have made it several times. It’s delicious and gluten-free but I’m not saying it’s low in calories!! For anyone on a gluten or wheat free diet, this really hits the spot when you’re missing a piece of cake!!
Lemon Polenta Cake
250g soft butter
rind of 2 lemons
1 cup sugar (I reduce this to max 3/4 of a cup)
3 eggs, separated
1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice
150g ground almonds
1 cup fine polenta (cornmeal)
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup of sugar
Heat together until sugar is dissolved. Pour over warm cake.
Beat butter, rind and sugar until fluffy
Add egg yolks
Stir in juice, almonds and polenta
Whip egg whites to make fluffy
Fold into polenta mixture
Bake for 45 minutes @ 180 C
Pour syrup over cake
This cake keeps well in the fridge for several days. Enjoy!

My hubby loves citrus cakes, so I might give this one a go.
