Next up is this dairy and gluten free Moose cake, probably a bit more challenging to make due to the fact that almost everything on the planet contains gluten! In the end I rang around and even double checked with companies who made the colouring paste I was using to check if it was gluten free.
Orange cake gluten & dairy free
250g of Tablelands dairy & gluten free canola
1 3/4 cups brown sugar
2 cups of Orgran selft raising flower (gluten & dairy free)
1 cup of Pauls Zymil dairy & gluten free milk
zest of 1 large orange
1/4 tsp of whole vanilla bean
Cream canola & sugar till well combined, then add your eggs one by one, beating after each addition.
Now sift in the 2 cups of flower and add the zest, vanilla and milk. Gently mix till combined.
Pour into a greased and lined 8' inch round tin and pop it in a pre-heated 180 degree oven. My oven is gas so it took 65 minutes to bake, make sure to check it after 50 min to see if its done.
Let cool and then frost with orange frosting
2 cups of pure icing sugar
2 Tblsp orange zest
3 Tblsp Tablelands canola
enough Zymil milk to blend the frosting into the consistency of thick whipped cream
Beat 1 cup of icing sugar with all the canola and a small amount of Zymil milk for 5 min till whote and fluffy, gradually add the remaining icing sugar and enough Zymil milk to make a thick spreadable frosting.
