Weekend Recipe: A Gluten-Free Holiday Cake That'll Have Everyone Coming Back for Seconds
From TIME - December 7, 2017

This is a luxurious and gluten-free holiday cake thats perfect for all celebrations. The dried fruits are soaked in orange, cinnamon and vanilla aromatics for about one hour, which creates a wonderful aroma and keeps the cake moist. Serve in delicate portions after lunch or dinner or warm it up and enjoy as a pudding with Greek yogurt or a dollop of crme frache.

WHATS GREAT ABOUT IT:

This cake is naturally sweetened with a high ratio of fruit, which means you dont need to use any extra sugar in the recipe. Ive used organically grown dried fruits in this cake, which means theyre free from the preservative sulfur dioxide found in many commercial baked fruit cakes. Dried fruits such as apricots, fresh dates and prunes are rich in soluble fiber that supports digestive health. Theyre also filled with minerals such as potassium and magnesium.

Im also using almond flour which replaces traditional white refined flours that make up most store-bought cakes. The almond flour is gluten free and adds protein and moisture so I just need to add a small amount of macadamia nut or olive oil to make it complete.
