So before the Easter brake is totally over here is an amazingly rich Gluten Free, Vegan celebration cake. Known as a Simnel cake it has something to do with the 11 true disciples of Christ. (I am hazy on the religion but the cake is too good to ignore!)

I actually got the recipe from the Doves Farm website, they have some great ideas, partially for Gluten Free baking. These cake comes complete with homemade Marzipan, I had no idea it would be so easy to make!! This really is a true celebration cake, so rich and sticky, you would never know it was Gluten Free or Vegan!!

A quick note on the recipe, in point 1. It means add the icing sugar and in point 2. It means the brown sugar!!! Also when making the marzipan you might need to add a little more water in your lemons are small, you want a firm dough you can roll and mold.

I cooked mine in a bigger tin, because I didn’t have an 8in, so I cooked it for about 1 and a half hours at about 120c
