    Ah lovely, that’s my kind of cake. I might have to try it with some of those redcurrants…

  2. Caroline says:

    I think it would be great with the redcurrants – or even with some rhubarb. It never lasts too long at this house.

    Just made that cake. It was delicious! And nice and easy. Thanks Caroline. Great way to use excess black currants.

    Had a glut of blackcurrants, made this cake and some muffins too! Delicious. x

    Hello, I love your recipies. Do you do print versions. Makes it quite difficult to print them off? Thanks

    Made this yesterday using gluten-free flour instead of ordinary (mixture maize, rice and potato flour) and it was lovely! It did, however, take 1 and 1/2 hours to cook at temperature in recipe! Not sure why. Not a problem, though, the result was great, and definitely something I’d make again.

      That sounds gorgeous, Chloe! I think that the reason it took so long to cook was because that combination of flours, together with the almonds and blackcurrants, make it super-dense. I’m glad that it turned out so well, though. I’ll have to test it out on my coeliac parents.

    Made the cake today absolutely yummy
    Definitely make it again as we have a blackcurrant bush

      So lovely to hear, Sara. I normally stash blackcurrants in the freezer so that I can make this cake out of season but I’ve none at the moment so looking forward to this summer’s harvest.

    This is THE blackcurrant cake!!! Thank you so much – been searching for years for a great recipe for my blackcurrants! Thank you so much!

      This is always a winner, Vanessa! I’m currently hovering over my blackcurrants so that I can get them before the blackbirds arrive and make this cake myself.
