Lemon Polenta Cake

Lemon Polenta Cake

Totally flour free, this cake uses ground almonds and fine polenta instead. It is delectable and very lemony.

Although it cooks well it also sinks a little after coming out the oven. I suspect this is due to using egg replacement rather than normal eggs. Don’t let this put you off as it is still delicious.

Serving it with a strawberry compote makes for a tasty dessert for the end of an Italian meal.
