‘Weekends are meant for baking especially during the winter months. Recipes can be adapted in many different ways to avoid gluten and to make life simpler especially if the cake is intended for sharing during a busy weekend.
Citrus season is abundant and at its peak here and some of those lemons weighing down the branches in our back gardens can be used to make this quick bake. This cake works well with oranges too and I have also made it with lime, substituting the ground almonds with coconut. The combination of lime and coconut is one of my favourites.
Buttermilk adds an incredible texture to anything that is baked and the cake crumb is lighter. This is a dense and moist cake and a small slice served with Greek yoghurt and slices of citrus also an incredible dessert.
