19 must-bake flourless cakes

No flour? No worries. A home-baked cake is still within your realms of possibility.

Ricotta-polenta cake with lemon-rosemary syrup
Flour or no, the magic of a home-baked cake is still in easy reach. Almond meal, polenta and semolina are your flourless friends here (though note, semolina is made from durum wheat); while they don't have the same binding properties as conventional wheat flour, they do give a lovely, denser texture to your cakes. Though in the case of the roulade recipes, it's the fluffy, delicate sponge-like body that will have you coming back for more.
