For those of you who've already come to see me in the Food Studio, you know that I'm passionate about cake. That's why this week I've been perfecting the perfect Passion Cake for this weekend's Gluten Free Baking class.


Passion Cake with Almond Cream


My Passion Cake is Gluten, Processed Sugar and Dairy free when using a margarine substitute such as Nutlex. So for the health conscious among you, this isn't a treat to deny yourself of.


3 Eggs

100 grams of Dates (dried and stoned)

100 grams of Margarine (substitute with Nutlex for a Dairy Free cake)

150 grams of Grated Carrot

150 grams of Pears

150 grams Almond Meal

20 grams of Baking Powder

10 grams of Cinnamon

10 grams of Nutmeg

10 grams of Allspice

A pinch of Salt

Passion Cake 007



Pre heat your oven to 180C. Grease and line a 23cm round cake tin.
Place the dates in boiling water until they become soft  then drain away the water ( The softening process should take approximately 10-15 minutes)

Roughly chop the pear, remove and dispose of the core and place the remaining fruit into the food processor. (Skinning the pear is optional, in fact leaving  the skin intact can add flavor and texture to the finished cake)

Passion Cake 005

Puree the pear with the eggs, softened dates and margarine (or Nutlex) until the pear is smooth. Then add the rest of the ingredients to the food processor and blitz until combined.

Place the mixture into the pre-greased and lined 23cm round tin and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown.


Passion Cake Almond Cream Pour


Now all that's left is to let the cake cool in the tin before removing and drizzling on some of my Almond Cream (which is gluten, dairy and egg free) and indulging. I hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
