Gluten free vegan peach cake

  • 40 gr potato starch
  • 180 gr brown sugar
  • 2 tsp cream of tartar

  • vanilla extract
  • 2 peaches
  • lemon juice + sugar

Ready in: 1 hour

Ahhh peaches … I miss raw, sweet, fresh, juicy peaches, le sigh. Unfortunately they are among the many fruits I can’t eat anymore, like apricots, plums, berries .. basically the best fruits of summer, that is. But as long as I eat them cooked (baked, jam, etc) I don’t get the usual mouth itching or swelling. So I decided to make this cake, combining my boyfriend’s sensitivity to gluten/dairy/eggs with mine to peaches.
Let’s start by pre-heating the oven 180°C. Then take one peach, peel it and slice it into small pieces, season it with lemon juice and brown sugar, according to taste (but I suggest you don’t over-do with the lemon) and let it rest. Prepare the flax-egg and let it rest too. Combine the other ingredients (except the other peach), add the seasoned peach and the flax-egg and whisk it all together. Pour the mix in the baking pan and slice the left peach decorating the cake as you like 😉 Add some more brown sugar on top and then put into the oven for 30-35 minutes.

I looove this cake, I have it for breakfast with some fruit juice, or as a dessert with some vanilla icecream on top … yummmmm!

Let me know if you try it! Hope you are all having a great summer and enjoying your well deserved vacation time! 🙂

    This cake looks amazing! I want to try this recipe but I can’t find potato starch anywhere in my town. I was wondering if I can substitute with tapioca starch or corn starch. I’m new to gluten free baking so I don’t know much about how the flour blends work. Thank you in advance! 🙂

      Hi! Tapioca and corn starch will work too, make sure they are certified gluten free 😉
