Nigella's Lemon Polenta Cake (gluten free)

This weekend i made Nigella's Lemon Polenta cake, and I am so pleased i did! A friend of mine made a polenta cake last year and i really enjoyed it so when i saw this recipe in Nigella kitchen i knew i would try it.

The mixture is very simple to make and contains no flour instead polenta and almond meal. The cake mix has lemon zest but its the syrup made from lemon juice and sugar that you pour over the cake once cooked that make this cake so moist, lemony and divine.
I am a lemon freak, so needless to say i loved it. You would have to love lemon to love it. The cake itself was very soft and crumbly.
I also served with natural yoghurt (vaalia is the brand i love) which was the perfect accompaniment for such a cake.


  1. Looks good! Which cookbook is it from? I don't think I've seen that before :) Love the new background BTW!

  2. My husband loves extremely the lemon taste in sweets. I am bookmarking this! It looks very juicy.

  3. This one is also from Nigella Kitchen!
    and thanks, finally had a moment to fiddle a little, its a photo of our thriving thyme in our garden!
