Gluten-free plum and almond slice

Now that one of my family members is gluten-free, I'm finding myself experimenting with gluten-free cooking that our whole family will enjoy. I don't want to be making two different kinds of everything. Ain't nobody got time for that. 

Often gluten-free baking can taste dry and chalky, but the almond flour and plums in this recipe give it the perfect moist and dense texture. 

Everybody in my family loves it; I hope you will too. 


  • 125g butter
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla essence
  • 3/4 cup plain gluten-free flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 cup almond flour
  • 1/3 cup chocolate drops
  • 2 red or purple-fleshed plums 


  1. Heat oven to 170 C fan bake, and line a pie dish with baking paper.
  2. Beat butter and sugar together until pale and creamy. 
  3. Beat in the eggs and vanilla. 
  4. Fold in flour, baking powder, baking soda and chocolate drops. 
  5. Spread mixture in prepared pie dish. 
  6. Slice plums into 6 wedges each and arrange these in a pleasing design over the mixture. 
  7. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted in the centre of the slice comes out clean. 
  8. Cool in the tin then remove to slice.
