Feast of Christ the King

Yesterday we celebrated the feast of Christ the King. The children made crowns during children's liturgy and later in the afternoon I baked a cake in honour of Christ our King. I printed out a few colouring pages and word searches. After the children finished up the activities we had a piece of cake.

The cake is a gluten free marble Teff cake. I got the recipe here, but forgot that my gram scale needed a battery and just winged it as follows. I omitted the lemon rind and baked it for 40 minutes as opposed to 60. I got the glaze recipe here.

Recipe for Gluten Free Marble Teff-flour Bundt Cake

2 1/2 cups Teff flour
1 1/2 cups organic cane sugar
1/2 lb of butter (softened)
5 large eggs
2 tsp GF baking powder
1 heaping Tbsp cocoa
1 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp milk

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla until smooth. Add eggs one at a time while beating contantly. Beat in milk and add flour a little at a time while stirring until smooth. Pour half of the batter in a well greased bundt pan. Add cocoa to the rest of the batter and pour on top. Use a fork to swirl the two batters to make a marble effect.

Bake in a preheated 325F oven for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick come out clean. Let cool 10 minutes and turn onto a plate. Cool completely and glaze or frost as desired.
