When it comes to flourless cakes I get worried as most of the recipes I’ve tried have been a disaster. So gluten-free baking for me is about using ground almonds, polenta or some sort of no-grain flour mixture. I came across this flourless chestnut cake recipe in one of the supermarkets’ magazine and decided to give it a try, thinking that the chestnuts & hazelnuts would provide the necessary binding agents in the batter. And I’m glad I did! It’s delicious, moist and my version is dairy-free too! So it’s perfect for dinner parties, afternoon teas or as a gift.
