Gluten Free Lupin Mud Cake

This rich, moist cake is delicious on any occasion. It is gluten free, and with the addition of Lupin Flour there is a wealth of other nutritional benefits.

Lupin is high in dietary fibre (30%) and protein (close to 40%) low in fat (6%) and contains only minimal starch and therefore a very low Glycemic Index (GI).

Notes & tips

  • The recipe given makes two 20cm by 4cm high cakes.
  • Butter may be replaced with a margarine that suits the product. (Consult your margarine supplier).
  • Flour may be used to replace the lupin flour or a portion of the almond meal. It is not recommended that all of the almond meal be replaced, as this will affect the balance of the entire recipe as well as the eating qualities and mouth feel.
  • Any modifications to the recipe will vary the baking time and temperature.
