Easy and Quick Gluten-Free Sunday's Cake with Rhubarb
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 135 g almond meal
  • 60 g teff flour
  • 90 g rice flour
  • 100 g tapioca starch
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 75 g lactose free butter (room temperature)
  • 165 g lactose free yogurt or coconut yogurt (room temperature)
  • 3 big eggs
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 100 g powdered xylitol
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 700 g fresh rhubarb (chopped to 3 cm pieces)
  • Handful of chopped almonds (optional)
  • Powdered xylitol, for dusting (optional)


  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C. Grease a 24cm round cake pan or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Mix together almond meal, teff, tapioca, rice flour and baking powder. Whisk butter with xylitol and maple syrup until light and fluffy. Then mix in eggs (one by one), vanilla and yogurt. Add dry ingredients and mix until well combined.
  3. Options for assembling the cake: Gently fold in the diced rhubarb until evenly distributed throughout the batter. Or you can do like I did: half of the rhubarb at the bottom of the pan and rest on the top. Then sprinkle chopped almonds.
  4. Bake for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean. Remove the cake from the oven and cool on a wire rack.
  5. Once the cake has cooled, you can dust it with powdered xylitol for an extra touch of sweetness.
