Gluten Free Madeira Cake

The creamy light texture of this Madeira sponge makes a sensational loaf cake that keeps extremely well.  We think this classic sponge is best served in simple slices.

I’ve made this recipe a few times and I add a couple of spoons of mixed peel I had left from Christmas. No one would know it’s gluten free as it’s delicious

I've made this gluten free madeira cake several times now and it always turns out lovely. Easy to make, delicious and stores well. ( Although don't expect it to stay in the cake tin for too long) Best of all, no one will guess that it's gluten free.
