Gluten-Free Victoria Pomegranate cake came about as a result of inspiration from my friend Jules, who has recently encouraged me. This is a remake of another pomegranate cake here but using gluten-free flours. The pomegranate molasses and orange juice give this dish an umami flavour.
Ingredients
  • 3tbs flaxseeds, ground
  • 7.5tbs filtered water
  • 140g buckwheat
  • 100g raw unrefined cane sugar
  • 40g oats
  • 140g sorghum flour
  • 80g potato starch
  • 2tsp baking soda
  • Pinch of salt
  • 140ml olive oil
  • 1tbs pomegranate molasses
  • 2tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ orange, juice
  • 100g pomegranate seeds
Instructions
  1. Pre-heat the oven to gas mark 180 degrees Celsius or if you have a fan oven 160 degrees Celsius.
  2. Line a cake tin (or two 7- or 8-inch cake tins) with olive oil and set to one side.
  3. Mix the flaxseeds with water and set to one side.
  4. In a food processor, grind the buckwheat granules, oats and unrefined cane sugar. Place in a large mixing bowl with the sorghum flour, potato starch, baking soda and salt. Mix well and set to one side.
  5. Add the flaxseed mixture to the large mixing bowl and combine.
  6. Add in the oil, pomegranate molasses, orange juice and vanilla extract. Mix well. Fold in the pomegranate seeds.
  7. Dish into the cake tin(s).
  8. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes until the crust turns into a light golden colour. Insert a skewer to test if it comes out clear to see if it is baked.
  9. Remove from heat and set to one side until cool.
  10. Top with icing of your choice, if preferred.
