    1. Hi Michelle, you could try and replace the regular flour with gluten Free flour. I have not tried it myself so I don’t know if it will work. My orange polenta cake recipe is lovely if you replace the flour with ground almonds and substitute lemon for orange. Hope this helps.

        I have just made it gluten free! I removed about 80g flour and replaced with ground almonds, added some raising agent and a small amount of xanthan gum. Fab!

    1. Hi Linda, I’ve never made it in a processor so I cant answer that I’m afraid. You could try and treat it like an ‘all in one’ cake but I would suggest mixing it in a bowl with a wooden spoon and add the raspberries at the last minute. Again, I’ve never done it that way so I’m not sure how it would turn out. Let me know how you get on if you do try it out. Shane

    Hi Shane, can’t wait to try this. I only have 1 pound loaf tins. Would I reduce cooking time by splitting it into two one pound tins?

    Thanks in advance.

    1. Hi Denise, thanks for your message. You can divide the recipe in half but if you have 2 x 1lb loaf tins just make the full recipe. I would say that if you are using a 1lb tin you would want to check the cake after 3o minutes if its not done id be keeping a close eye on it after this time. Hope that helps. Shane

    1. Let them defrost and carefully fold them in at the end. try not to mush them up. Alternatively you can spoon in half the cake batter, add the raspberries on top and spoon the remaining mix over this
