Mother's Day Gluten-Free Lemon Polenta Cake

A delightful lemon and polenta cake for Mother’s Day, perfect to enjoy at any time of day – with a cup of morning coffee, for an afternoon treat, or a lovely after-dinner sweet. This gorgeous cake comes drizzled with lemon icing and is decorated with edible flowers. This cake is lovely and moist from the addition of polenta with a delightful lemon-vanilla flavor from the fresh lemon zest mixed throughout and the zingy citrus icing. It’s light and classic, yet decadent and looks just beautiful. It’s the perfect sweet treat to spoil that special mother figure in your life – and it’s Gluten Free!

Founded in 2004 by Paul Allam and David McGuinness, Bourke Street Bakery was born and bred in Sydney, Australia, and now has a location in New York. The duo had a big dream to make food they loved by hand from scratch — taking their time, always honoring good produce, strong flavors and artisanal baking traditions. This “Australian High Temple of Sourdough" (according to Eater NY) has been embraced by New Yorkers who scramble for a taste of house-baked sourdough, sausage rolls, and beef pies made with mostly local ingredients, including grains from Maine that are milled on-site.
