Wheat & Gluten Free Lemon Cake recipe

I made this fabulous wheat and gluten free cake this week from a recipe on the BBC Good Food website. It was so delicous I thought I would share.

You will need
200g butter , softened
200g golden caster sugar
4 eggs
175g ground almonds
250g mashed potatoes
zest 3 lemons
2 tsp gluten-free baking powder (Supercook does one)
4 tbsp granulated sugar
juice 1 lemon

Step One
Heat oven to 180C/fan160C/gas 4. Butter and line a deep,20cm round cake tin.
Beat the sugar and butter together until light and fluffy, then gradually add the egg, beating after each addition. Fold in the almonds, cold mashed potato, lemon zest and baking powder.

Step Two
Tip into the tin, level the top, then bake for 40-45 mins or until golden and a skewer inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. Turn out onto a wire rack after 10 mins cooling. Mix the granulated sugar and the lemon juice together, then spoon over the top of the cake, letting it drip down the sides. Let the cake cool completely before slicing.
