Gluten & Lactose Free Almond, Orange & Lavender Cake – Gluten & Laktosfri Mandel, Apelsin & Lavendel Kaka

IMG_4914

This cake was made by one of our close family friends Åsa, at first. We all fell in love with the cake and made it multiple times over the coming days. This cake is gluten AND lactose free, but so moist and delicious. It contains lots of eggs, which makes it fluffy, light and high. The glaze on the side can either be drizzled on the whole cake or served on the side. No matter what you do, this cake can’t fail. It’s not so exact and it’s not about making it perfect. It’s about the result being delicious. The original recipe comes from Eric Landlard and this is my take on it!
