Orange and Almond Polenta Cake

The mighty orange is the star of the show here! It’s in the batter (orange zest and orange blossom water) and we add it to the cardamom-spiced syrup as orange juice and more orange blossom water. The cake owes its spongy texture to the almond flour and corn flour. Serve it with whipped cream. Did we mention that it has no gluten at all?

Well, I love to eat! I guess I always did. Tasty foods, traditional foods, fast-foods, healthy foods and, again, not so healthy ones. You name it.
