Gluten Free Cinnamon and Polenta Tea Cake


    I created this recipe adapting from an old recipe my grandma used to make for us when we came to visit. As a new mum I have been trying to make new tasty but easy recipes for my 2 year old boy, who is a fussy eater. We have also decided to go GF and DF in our household - so If you can relate, please try this recipe. It’s yummy but healthy and it’s perfect with tea or coffee in the afternoon. It’s super easy and it’s a family favourite of ours.
