This dessert is a cake filled with a vanilla custard and a favorite fruit preserve. The sponge cake is very similar to a torte, but since it is made with flour and baking powder, it is denser than a cake and not as dense as a torte. It's a perfect consistency and it is so very delicious!
The original recipe is from Food and Wine website http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/gateau-basque
I decided to make this dessert gluten-free, so I mixed my favorite flours together (for cakes and cookies) and reduced the amount of sugar to create a perfect and delicious cake.
Gluten-Free flour mixture can be found in this Blog under my recipe "British Christmas Cake"
Chef Notes: The gluten free flour mixture is more than you need for this recipe. Keep remainder gluten free mixture in a tin for future use. Also, remember to use a gluten free baking powder; if you decide to bake this gluten free.
