Gluten-Free Christmas Cake Recipe

What's great about it

A spectacular recipe featured in my cookbook Purely Delicious and Healthy Recipe App. Perfect for the whole family.

This Christmas Cake is gluten-free, dairy-free and refined sugar-free and just so delicious! A truly healthy Christmas Cake that the whole family will love!


Makes 1 cake.

600 g (20 oz) dried fruits (raisins, apricot, sultanas)

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon vanilla bean extract

zest from 1 orange

4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

3 tablespoons maple or raw honey (optional)

3 organic eggs

220 g (7 oz) almond meal

handful flaked almonds


PREHEAT your oven to 160°C fan-forced (320°F).

PREPARE a 18 cm (7 inches) round cake tin with baking paper lining the sides and the base.

COMBINE dried fruit, cinnamon, ginger, vanilla, orange zest and juice, olive oil and eggs in a large bowl.

ADD the almond meal and mix until well combined.

SPOON the batter into your baking tin.

BAKE for 45 - 60 minutes until cooked.

COVER the top with foil if necessary to prevent over-browning.

COOL then enjoy.

Notes and Inspiration

This cake can also be made as individual puddings. To take it to the next level, serve with my Turmeric Custard from my Health Baking Cookbook.

If you wish to soak your Christmas cake in orange liqueur, as soon as you remove the cake from the oven, skewer holes through the cake and drizzle over ¼ cup orange liqueur so it can penetrate through the holes and infuse into the cake.
