Monday remedy: gluten-free marble cake with blueberries and lime

Monday is usually the hardest day of the week. After a weekend in which we have relaxed and we have had fun, Monday arrives and brings us back to our work, our studies and all that endless list of things to do. But who said Monday should be a bad day? Today I propose a very easy and original recipe to start the week with enthusiasm and fun. With this marble cake of blueberries and lime you will fill your house with a sweet aroma and give your family a dose of good humor πŸ™‚

Unlike the classic marble cake, this cake does not need two compounds of different color, in this cake the marble effect is produced cooking the blueberries.

        Thank you, Elosia, I made this with frozen blueberries and it was tasty. It did not look as good as yours, but that’s ok. Thank you for sharing your recipes! πŸ’–

  • Darci

    I made this cake using frozen blueberries and rice milk. It tasted great,but did not have light crust like yours shown in the picture…. It was all dark purple. Love your website!

    • Eloisa

      Hi Darci, it depends on the blueberries, some are more juicy and others less. Anyway, I’m glad you liked the cake. Thanks for telling me, you were very kind πŸ™‚

  • Jane

    Sorry, What is a as silicon mold?Can I just use an 8×8 glass pan?

    • Eloisa

      Hi Jane, thank you for writing.
      A silicone mold is a pastry mold that help to not stick the cakes. You can use any other mold or pan, but I recommend lining it with baking parchment.

    Your web site is fantastic!!! I love that you have categorized the phases as well as listed which recipes are cross phase. I recently thought of doing this myself because I wanted a site that is only FMD where there are not so many modifications to make food compatible. As well, I love that your writing is concise, interesting and you are not posing 20 images and a novel for one simple dish!! You have done this so well that I will just visit you every day !! I am in Canada and we cannot get the FMD baking mix. I see that you have figured out your own flour mix and although I long ago gave up purchasing many GF flours to make up one dish, I may try again with your recipes, you make look very easy. Well Done!!

I hope you enjoy my recipes and give me your opinion about them 😁
