Gluten free Christmas cake - the taste test!

Happy New Year dear readers!  I hope 2013 is a year of happy times, positive changes and new beginnings. A day late I know, I managed to keep myself away from the computer for most of the day yesterday.  I"m in the process of moving my sewing room from downstairs to a spare room upstairs.  So many bags and boxes to sort out, my goodness.  It's amazing how much fabric and stuff one has squirreled away :0/

Any who back to the gluten free fruit cake I baked for Christmas.  Well  it was a great success, lovely and moist, with a wonderful taste.  The only problem and I wouldn't really call it a problem was that it was a bit crumbly.  That could be due to me adding a 1/2 cup of almond meal and not reducing the flour or adding any extra liquid.  Gluten free cakes can be crumbly anyway.  I'll certainly make it again, perhaps I'll be more organised next Christmas and make it well in advance.  Hmmm I'm sure it would taste even better with more time to age!

Hope your 2013 is off to a good start!!
