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.

This is the best Madeira Cake I have ever made! It was a very moist cake and even after several days. Nobody believed it was gluten free, definitely 5 stars!
