Healthy, because

Walnuts help to stay relaxed during stress, the nerve-strengthening B vitamins and the mineral magnesium are responsible. They are also a good source of melatonin, a hormone that helps us fall asleep. The raisins also provide us with B vitamins that strengthen our nerves. The gluten-free fruit cake is therefore real nerve calming food.

GLUTEN FREE FLOUR TIPS: Regular wheat flour cannot be replaced 1:1 by gluten-free flour, but you can still bake great gluten-free cakes with simple tricks. For example, if you sieve your gluten-free flour, the cake will become looser. If you don't want to use a ready-made flour mix, then always mix different gluten-free flours. For the 200 grams / 7 ounces of flour mix used here, you can also use 80 grams / 2.8 ounces of rice starch, 60 grams /2 ounces of hemp flour, 50 grams / 1.75 ounces of potato flour, 10 grams / 2 tsp of Teff flour, 1 teaspoon of psyllium husks (ground) and 0.5 teaspoon of guar gum



7 ounces butter
7 ounces sugar
4 eggs
organic lemons (peel)
2 tablespoons Rum
4 ounces finely chopped Walnut
10 ounces gluten free Pastry flour
3 teaspoons Baking powder
6 ounces raisins (soaked in warm water)
5 tablespoons milk (depending on strength of the dough)
butter (for the mold)
powdered sugar
