The first cake recipe I ever learned is called the 4 quarters in French, because each ingredient makes up a quarter of the recipe. My gluten free version is a little adapted to my lower fat lower sugar lifestyle, and I added some ground cardamom for a little something extra. This recipe is super easy with only four ingredients (five if you make your own flour mix as I do) and is always a success. You can replace the cardamom by other spices or the flavour of your choice 🙂

Ingredients: (for 8 persons)

  • 100g rice flour
  • 100g corn starch
  • 4 eggs (=200g)
  • 150g raw sugar
  • 150g melted butter
  • 10 cardamom dried seeds

Preparation: 20 minutes

Baking: 40 minutes – 200°C


  1. Preheat your oven to 200°C.
  2. Ground the cardamom seeds thinly in a blender.
  3. Mix the flour and the corn starch with the sugar and the melted butter.
  4. Add the eggs one by one and whisk until smooth.
  5. Add in the ground cardamom.
  6. Pour the batter in a cake tin layered with baking paper.
  7. Bake at mid-height for about 40 minutes.
  8. Wait until the cake has cooled down before cutting and serving.
