Bio-Oz Christmas Cake (Gluten and Dairy Free)

Bio-Oz Christmas Cake (Gluten and Dairy Free)

Absolutely delicious, you can not tell this cake is gluten and dairy free!  The recipe is based on Prince Charle's Christening Cake. I've substituted the flour with buckwheat flour and the butter with a combination of oils and salt (you can't taste the buckwheat flour or the oils).  

Ingredients

  • 2 tblspns coconut oil
  • 2 tblspns extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sunflower oil
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 1kg mixed dried fruit
  • 2/3 cup whole almonds, ground
  • 1 cup Bio-Oz Buckwheat flour
  • 1 1/4 tspns xanthum gum
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • 2 tblspns brandy or sherry
  • extra 2 tblspsn brandy or sherry
  • extra almonds and or glace cherries

Cooking Instructions

Preheat oven to 180C.  Double line base 24cm springform baking tin with baking paper and double line side of springform baking tin with baking paper, with paper raised approx 8cm above side of tin.

Combine oils and beat with sugar until well combined.  Add eggs one at a time, beating well between each egg.

Add fruit and brandy.  Add ground almonds, buckwheat flour, xanthum gum and salt and mix until well combined.

Spoon mixture into prepared baking tin, spread level and "bang" tin on bench top to remove air bubbles.  Decorate top with extra almonds and or glace cherries.

Place cake in oven and bake for 15 mins at 180C, then lower temperature to 160C and bake for 1 1/2 hours or until cooked.  Immediately after removing cake from oven drizzle over extra brandy or sherry and wrap cake (still in tin) in newspaper and allow to cool.
