Lemon and mascarpone cake {sans gluten}

Cake au citron

L’autre jour je suis rentrée des courses avec un énorme pot de mascarpone mais sans savoir vraiment quoi en faire. Et comme je ne pouvais pas manger d’œufs crus (oui je sais je radote là !), exit le tiramisù ! Mais je n’avais pas envie non plus de me priver d’une petite gourmandise pour l’heure du goûter ! C’est là que l’idée d’un cake au citron et au mascarpone m’est venuet comme je ne fais pas les choses à moitié, ce gâteau est même sans gluten à base de farine de maïs et de poudre d’amandes.

No basic recipe but a complete experimentation and it was only when tasting it that I realized that I had not missed it (phew !) … the cake had a soft texture that I loved ! It will still be necessary that I do not devour everything before the return of Mr.… And no, mascarpone is not just for tiramisù !!!

    Corn flour, citron, almond powder and mascarpone, That, it speaks to me! And I have no doubt about the softness of this cake. I think you can easily replace the mascarpone with yogurt.!

  • He looks divine!

  • LadyMilonguera

    I really want your cake…

  • moum007

  • pink radish

    I think the photo looks as appetizing as the cake.

  • great recipe!!! Some time ago I tested a cake similar to : a free-style with rice flour, mascarpone and lemon and it was very good. Your photos are to die for!! I have to try yours!!

  • Louise

    I admit, the texture looks awesome !

  • veropapilles

    A beautiful tangy cake which should be very soft. Biz and good afternoon. Vero

  • Grenadine

    Hold, I just published a lemon cake recipe too., but very different from yours ! It tastes very melting, I will try your recipe with mascarpone. If you want, I have a tiramisu recipe without raw eggs on my blog, the eggs are cooked in a bain-marie with the sugar as for a sabayon, and the tiramisù holds up much better as a bonus :

  • rej59

    Made this afternoon, success tonight !!!
    Beautiful color, very soft, I didn't have enough almonds anymore, I replaced with hazelnut powder, I keep the recipe and the next time I think to add candied fruits.
    Thank you for your work, Have a good evening

    • Emilie

      Thank you very much Rej, I'm glad you liked this recipe (at the same time we hope that what we are preparing for you is not bad !!!) 😉

      • rej59

        • Emilie

          wow !! what a tribute.
          Come tell us what you think ??
          MERCI !!

    • Alexandre Exel

      Hello, can you tell me how to buy hazelnut powder at a good price (and quality) through the Internet? I live in Blumenau/SC.

      • Emilie

        I don't really know him, it is better to buy whole hazelnuts and mix them.

  • Wartelle Marlene

    I did not find corn flour, do you think that with wheat flour, it may or may not work ? 🙂

    • Emilie

      I think there is no problem with wheat flour but you just have to be careful not to overwork the dough after incorporating the flour. 😉

  • Is it chemical or normal yeast?? Merci!

    • Emilie

      It's baking powder but gluten-free if that's important to you..

  • Hmmmm, very tempting this cake and these photos are so pretty!! we would eat them!

  • Aix guinea fowl

    mMM Your cake must be very moist ! I also use mascarpone in cheesecakes (and in the salty too ;-))

  • Auriane

    can i replace the mascarpone with yogurt? ?

    • Emilie

      Yes but the best will be a Greek yogurt !

  • Very nice recipe that allows me to discover other gluten-free ones.
    I prepared it this weekend and added an egg because the batter was too thick.

    I will talk about it soon on my blog and I am of course referring to your blog.


    • Emilie

      Thank you very much Natasha, Glad you find your happiness with us. !

  • behind

  • manual

    this cake really makes me want to but I can't eat butter can I replace it with oil if so how much?

    • Emilie

      No worries Manu, you can replace the butter with 5 cl of oil or by 80 g almond puree.

  • Sophie

    My cake is baking… in my bread oven. I'll tell you what it is. Of course I have the cake option in my oven. I took lime instead of yellow, only for a matter of taste. I can't wait to taste it.

    • Emilie

      Oh awesome, I love the lime idea !

      • Sophie

        oh yes it's so good, there I always do it again organic lime and coconut and baked bread baking cake ! I adore ! Thank you very much I relish being able to eat gluten-free sweet from time to time and how good the recipes are ! <3

        • Emilie

    Good evening Emily, tried and tested recipe. I was out of butter, I put 250 gr of mascarpone and the juice of an orange, instead of lemon. It is delicious. Thanks for your recipe.
