This is called a Lemon Griesstorte (that's lemon semolina cake to you and me)



It's an flour-less cake, filled with lemon cream and raspberries.

In honour of the in-laws visiting.  Hope they like it!

that look's amazing! Where did you get the recipe if you don't mind me asking... my mom has celiac diseases so she can't eat flour or gluten, so i am always looking for flourless desserts to make for her

Hi erinsonyabean,

Unfortunately semolina is made from wheat, so it's not gluten-free Sad.

Thanks for all your comments   Smiley

spaghetti - you got in there quick!  Yes unfortunately semolina is made from wheat.

The recipe goes something like this...

Separate 3 eggs.  Whisk with yolks with 100g caster sugar until it goes pale.  Best to use an electric whisk if you've got one.  Add the juice from half a lemon and whisk until it gets thick.  Stir in grated rind from the lemon, 15g of ground almonds and 50g of semolina.

Now whisk the egg whites until you get soft peaks, then fold into the other mixture.  Put into an 8" cake tin and bake at 180C / gas mark 4 for half an hour, until it's risen and golden brown.  Let it cool completely.

Whisk up some double cream and add 4 tablespoons of lemon curd.  Cut the cake in half and fill with the lemon cream and raspberries.

So you see it's a really easy recipe, but the cake comes out really light and fluffy.  I like to include the rasberries as they cut through the tanginess of the lemon cream.
