Gluten-Free Marble Loaf – A Nostalgic Treat
Baking isn’t just about creating delicious treats; it’s also about crafting cherished memories. Our Gluten-Free Marble Loaf, with its playful swirls of vanilla, chocolate and pink cake, does just that.
It’s a cake that holds a special place in my heart—it’s my mum’s favourite and was a very special after-school treat. Whether to celebrate birthdays, holidays or to brighten a regular day, my mum’s homemade marble cake symbolised love and care. And now, with this gluten-free and low FODMAP adaptation, I can relish the nostalgia and pass the same memories on to my family.
Our gluten-free marble loaf is dairy-free and low FODMAP so everyone can enjoy a slice. The steps are simple: cream margarine and sugar, add eggs one by one, mix the remaining ingredients, pour into a lined pan, and into the oven it goes. Voila! You’ll have a delightful treat in no time.
We’ve iced the cake with thick pink icing, just like my mum used to, but you can use any colour or flavour.
So, let’s take a trip down memory lane and create a Gluten-Free Marble Loaf that brings smiles and sweet memories flooding back to my kitchen.
