Kugelhof
(A large traditional German cake.)

 

Ingredients

200G white rice flour

100G soy flour                     

200G almond meal                                     

3 heaped tablespoons gluten-free baking powder

220G castor sugar

 

300G unsalted butter, softened

50 ml brown rum

1 tablespoon pure vanilla essence

6 large eggs

 

Handful sultanas

Flaked almonds

 

Method

Chop the butter roughly into small pieces; in a large mixer bowl beat the butter until smooth and creamy.

Slowly add the sugar and continue beating at high speed until the sugar and butter are smooth, creamy and thoroughly mixed.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly between each egg. Sift the flours, baking powder and almond meal.

Lower the mixer speed and gradually add half the flour mix, followed by the rum and vanilla essence.

Add the remaining flour and then fold in a handful of sultanas.

Grease a 25cm Kugelhopf baking tin well with butter and sprinkle the bottom with a handful of flaked almonds. This creates an attractive pattern of nuts on the top of the finished cake.

Pour the mix into the prepared tin, ensuring the mix is evenly distributed. Bake at 180C for 65 minutes.

Tip out of the tin immediately then cool on a wire rack before cutting.
