Happy Birthday Blog

Tuesday, 9 October 2012

My blog turned one today.  To celebrate I made it a gluten free orange, fig and olive oil cake.  It tasted pretty good!  It is a very moist cake, sweet with a real hit of citrus and fresh figs are so good right now.  It seemed appropriate since I made an orange cake for my first ever post.
Find the recipe here at Shutterbean
To make it gluten free I used gluten free all purpose flour (approx 210g) and gluten free baking powder.  I also reduced the sugar down to 1 cup (approx 110g).  Otherwise everything else was the same.
Here’s to many more years of blogging fun.  Thanks to all those who read and comment!  It means a huge amount to me and keeps me going. J
