When it comes to gluten free baking many people feel daunted. And understandably so. But over time I’ve begun to realise, that all baking can be tricky. And even with standard bakes, things don’t always go to plan.
What a delightful recipe I have to share with you today. This delicious gluten free date and walnut traybake topped with lightly whipped coffee buttercream, a sprinkle of chopped walnuts and finished with a dusting of cocoa, really is the perfect afternoon treat. It’s also another really simple recipe to pop together and smells AMAZING whilst it’s baking! And may just be my current favourite bake.
Mmmm moussaka I love it! Now, my take on moussaka isn’t the true authentic dish that you would expect to get served up in beautiful Greece. But, it is nice and easy to pop together, extremely tasty and naturally gluten free!
Another mighty fine recipe to share with you! This gluten free lemon drizzle cake recipe is a joy to make and smells incredible whilst it’s baking. The light buttery sponge, is delicately flavoured with fresh lemon zest and finished with a classic lemon drizzle topping.
I’ve loved making this gluten free Russian sandwich cake and writing the recipe up to share with you. My grandma was rather partial to this cake too. And I used to love treating to her to one from our local bakery. I’m sorry that she won’t ever get to taste my gluten free version of one of her favourite cakes. But I’m forever grateful to her for playing such a huge part in turning me into a proper foodie!
This gluten free Russian sandwich cake has it all – light buttery sponge, sandwiched together with delicious homemade pastry cream, topped with glace icing and finished with a delicate trail of toasted coconut. And, I’ve triple tested this recipe, so I know it’s a winner. Hope you love it!
I’ve discovered another great recipe that works really well as a gluten free version. This rhubarb and custard cake (the original recipe is from BBC good food, and has tons of great reviews) is lovely! It’s nice and easy to make too, and it’s a perfect way of using rhubarb, that is in season at the moment. The rhubarb I used for this cake came fresh out of my dad’s garden!
Had a little bash at making some gluten free shortbread biscuits and was delighted with how well they turned out and thought I’d better get on and share the recipe with you.
I have to confess, this gluten free almond tart recipe came to me as a bit of an afterthought whilst I was making a batch of my frangipane mince pies at Christmas. And I simply slipped the tart idea into the post, as a variation/suggestion of other ways of using the pastry and frangipane mixture. But after having a little left-over pastry knocking about the other day and making this delicious, squishy filled almond tart again, I decided it completely warranted its own dedicated spot on my site. Plus, it makes the recipe much easier for you to find when it has its own home, rather being slotted within another post.
I’m a little late to the gluten free chocolate brownie party. But I now realise why that is. I hadn’t tasted a really good one. Instead, I had been basing my uneducated opinion on shop bought versions. Which unfortunately, don’t do homemade, gluten free squidgy chocolate brownies any justice whatsoever.
I’ve got this really simple gluten free tea loaf recipe I want to share with you. It’s something I used to make a lot when I worked as a cook in a nursing home. And it’s absolutely delicious, buttered and enjoyed with a hot cuppa!
