I have tried various gluten free cakes before, with the best one I've tasted being Costa's Gluten Free Chocolate Brownie, which is lovely and moist.
So I decided to give making my own cake a bash and saw Nigel Slater doing a Lemon & Thyme cake on TV - his version wasn't gluten free however it did use ground almonds, meaning the cake would stay a bit moister. I didn't have thyme, so I thought I would substitute with rosemary...it works well with chicken, right?
One of my handy helpers (Lauren), helped to mix the cake ingredients together and we popped it in the oven and crossed our fingers. It was cooked on a low heat and first impressions were that it was rising well, which is always a good sign! It smelled absolutely amazing.
After waiting a while for it to cool (we probably managed to hold off for 10 mins - our mouths were watering!), we cut into it and had a slice when it was still warm. Served with a dollop of extra thick double cream, it was literally to die for!
I have included the recipe below for anyone who wants to try it themselves. I think I may have found my new signature cake :)
