    Maple cake: made for DH birthday. I halved the recipe and it filled 5 6 inch layer tins (I was aiming for 4!) Like the cardamon cake, this is a very wet batter but baked into a lovely moist sponge. Took about 21 mins at 160C. Funnily enough my family liked this better than I did - the maple flavour didn't really come through, which was a little disappointing. Would like to try the "apricot bliss" version with apricot puree and vanilla buttercream. The texture was lovely - you wouldn't know this was "gluten free". I could very faintly taste the chickpea flour, which may be a deal-breaker for some but I didn't mind. I used the dark chocolate ganache. In future could probably quarter the recipe and get 3 layers?

    Dark chocolate ganache frosting: for a half batch 16oz choc chips is about 450g. Half batch was plenty to ice my 5 layer (6 inch) cake. Used coconut oil and it did still taste of coconut - again my family liked more than I did! I found it quite runny but was able to coat the cake. I had used a lot of leftover choc so may not be a fair judgement. It set well in the fridge. Definitely use paper underneath the cake. This would not stand up well in hot heat. Very rich. ETA: we used leftovers with fruit (apples and berries) and that was very popular.

    Cardamom spice cake - oh my. This is good. It is a really wet batter - I was worried I'd miscalculated or not added something but it made a lovely moist sponge that didn't have that slightly rubbery GF texture. It most reminded us of Jamaican ginger cake or golden syrup cake (Brits know what I'm talking about). There was maybe a touch too much syrup (or not well mixed enough?) as the centre was quite syrupy and bubbled slightly. Took significantly longer to cook than stated. Great review from DH who said he might take into work.
