Your favourite homemade treat without the wheat
This is the recipe for a favourite cake in my family: my Gran’s Hot Milk cake with broiled coconut icing. While delicious and impressive, it is very easy and quick to make – you don’t even need to wait for the cake to cool before icing.
I would often get home from school to find one of these cakes cooling on the counter, but once I was diagnosed with celiac’s disease I figured those days were over. Being the extraordinary baker that she is, my Gran simply re-worked the recipe to suit my new diet, and the results were almost identical to my old after-school favourite. This cake is just as light and fluffy as the original, and even better without the gluten!
