  5. Heat a large nonstick fry pan over medium and add a glug of oil. Place the cakes in the pan and cook 3-4 minutes on one side, gently flip and cook 3-4 minutes on the other side. Place on a baking sheet and continue until all cakes are lightly cooked on both sides. Place in the oven to continue cooking for another 10 minutes. Serve with your favorite gluten-free BBQ sauce.
