Gluten free: Plum and almond cake

Going gluten free is the new eating trend that’s a hot topic in Parisian conversations. It started as a diet for people with gluten sensitivity; now it’s a roaring success in all circles. People who have eliminated wheat, rye, barley and oats from their dinner plate claim they've never looked back, with better digestion, more energy, and disappearing pounds…

Ingredients for 2 servings glutin-p


•    4 large seasonal plums
•    2 eggs
•    75 grams (2.6 oz) gluten-free sweeten ice sugar
•    75 grams (2.6 oz) ground almonds
•    50 grams (1.8 oz) brown rice flour
•    1/8 sachet gluten-free baking powder
•    60 grams (2.1 oz) melted butter
•    1 pinch of cinnamon


Preparation (10 minutes), Cooking (20-30 minutes)


Preheat the oven to 360°F (180°C) or gas mark 4.

Slice and stone the plums.

Whip the eggs with the gluten-free confectioner’s sugar.

Add the ground almonds, brown rice flour, gluten-free baking powder, and melted butter. Blend together until you obtain a uniform mixture.

Pour the mixture into a rectangular baking mold smeared with butter. Lay out the plum slices on top of the cake mix, then bake for 20–30 minutes.

Catherine - Lifestyle

Bonjour, my name is Catherine. I live in the heart of Paris. I’ve always loved to travel and, over the years, I developed it into a real art: the right addresses, the suitcase, how to manage fatigue with my Parisian look! From Cannes to Antigua, from the red carpet to Pilates, I have to live up to the reputation. I have small apartments in Paris that I rent out. I love to personally welcome my guests and give them some recommendations about life in Paris “living like a true Parisian and not like a simple tourist in an elegant private suit in the heart of the city”.
