    Would anyone have a recipe for a gluten-free fruitcake?

    I’m also looking for a foolproof recipe for a rich dark, moist gingerbread cake/loaf.

    What flour could I use to convert to a gluten-free version?

    8 oz Sugar 1lb grated courgette

    4oz Amaranth flour 1 cup chopped glace ginger

    4oz rice flour 1 cup oil

    2tsp cinnamon 3 beaten eggs

    2tsp baking Powder 2tsp vanilla essence

    2tsp groung ginger Water to mix

    4oz sultanas optional

    Put eveything except glace ginger and courgette into food proceessor and blend for 3 min. Stir in courgettes and ginger. Place in 2lb loaf tin(greased and floured) Cook in centre of oven for 45 min- 180 C/350F/ gas 4. Cool in tin for 5-10 mins before turning out.

    Put into a greased & paper lined 10cm tin

    Bake in oven at 180°C for 1 hour

    Serve as a cake slice or with custard for a warm dessert

    – Sounds good, but I admit, I havn’t had a go at this one yet. Most of her recipes are yummy though. 😉


    Thank you Purplehat,

    Is Nuttelex that Nutella choc hazlenut spread?

    I’m guessing that’s a 375gm packet of fruit? Or is it optional?

    The pear fruit and juice should be interesting.


    I think Nuttelex is used instead of butter, is found with the butter and margarine in supermarket (and it is not nutella) …..


    Sunflower, Teacup is right, I meant the dairy-free margarine. I wish I could eat Nutella. 😉

    The fruit I guess she just means the packs of dried mixed fruit. She usually uses dried currents in her other recipes, which I then boil for 10 minutes before using.. I’m not sure if she means to do that in this recipe though.. sorry I’m not being more helpful! I’d just use it dried in this case, I think. Hey, it’s only once a year. 😆 I really should give it a try.
