Christmas is around the corner and I’m sure your kitchens must be smelling really good already. It’s been quite hard for me to bake since I recently lost my grandmother but I know she would be so happy about all that I’ve achieved these last couple of months, so well I’ve just been pushing myself to do greater things.
What’s Christmas without cake right? Cake and wine. So cliche but my Christmas is most definitely incomplete without them. This year has been all about experimenting for me. Just 15 days left before I’m off to LCB and I decided to have my last bake sale, where most of the treats were gluten-free. It’s very hard for a traditional rum cake to not consist of flour but celiac disease is a serious thing. And why should we deprive anyone from indulging during the season? So I went on to create this delicious cake.
Almond has always been my favourite from the nut family and it just gives your cake such a wonderful texture. This Spiced Rum Almond cake is perfect for the wintery weather. I baked this for my grand dad’s birthday last week and he loved it. It is not very difficult to make either. Just make sure you follow the recipe to the t and you’ll end up with a light, flavourful cake.
