How to prepare gluten-free paradise cake

  1. First, break the eggs and separate the white from the yolk. Whip the first until stiff, adding a pinch of salt if necessary.
  2. Again using an electric whisk, whip the egg yolks with 150 g of sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  3. Then add the grated lemon zest, the main aroma of the recipe, the seed oil and the milk . Mix quickly then add the powders (rice flour, starch, cream of tartar and bicarbonate).
  4. Also add the remaining sugar, stirring constantly.
  5. Finally, add the whipped egg whites , a few at a time and mixing delicately from bottom to top to prevent the mixture from falling apart. You should obtain a homogeneous and fluffy mixture.
  6. Transfer it to an oiled and floured 24cm diameter pan and bake at 170°C for 35-40 minutes. Before taking it out of the oven, always do the toothpick test, making sure it comes out dry.
  7. Serve the paradise cake with a sprinkling of icing sugar.
