I am an avid reader of culinary blogs, especially when it comes to healthy food and organic. Among these blogs, I love Green Kitchen Story. You may already know this couple. They keep the blog together and published (or suggest?) An application on the Appstore. I wanted to revisit (but mostly French adapt) one of their recipes in my own way, their Blueberry, Lemon and Almond cake. When I think adapt, it is mainly replace the almond flour (which costs a fortune) with almond powder and chestnut flour that are much less expensive. I also decided not to make glazing that I generally find too sweet.
– 1 1/2 cup almonds powder
– 3/4 cup chestnut flour
– 1/2 teaspoon baking powder gluten free
– 1/2 tbsp baking soda
– 3/4 cup powdered sugar or 1/4 cup agave syrup
– 1/2 cup butter
– 3 eggs
– 2 small lemons
– 1 cup frozen blueberries
1 – Preheat oven to 350°F.
2 – Mix the almond powder, chestnut flour, baking soda and baking powder. Next, zest lemons.
3 – Melt the butter in a saucepan with the sugar (or agave syrup) and add the lemon zest. Then also add the lemon juice. Mix this preparation with preparations of almonds. Complete by 3 eggs and mix well with a wooden spatula.
4 – Pour the mixture into a mold covered with baking paper. Post over the blueberries. Finally, bake at 350°F for 45 minutes (see 50 min).
Voilà ! It is a simple recipe and gluten free. A perfect accompaniment to share a cup of tea.
