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 delightfully simple gluten free tea loaf recipe 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!
Calling all school dinner lovers, this recipe might just be up your street!
I hope like me, you were lucky enough to have experienced chocolate sponge and chocolate sauce whilst you were growing up. I was double lucky, as not only did I get to tuck into it at school, my mum also made it for us at home! So, to be honest, whilst for you, chocolate sponge and chocolate sauce may transport you back to your school dinner days, for me it’s another thing that reminds me of my mum.
For many people making gluten free pastry can seem a bit problematic. And I totally get it. As after many years of making ‘traditional’ pastry, it took me a few goes to get the gluten free version right!
Whilst I have quite a few gluten free pastry based recipes on my site, I thought it would helpful to also type up the basic recipe. So it’s handy for you to refer to, should you choose to whip up a batch of gluten free pastry, to use in a recipe of your own.
Yet another great gluten pastry recipe to share with you! And this time it’s a real corker! Gluten free steak and kidney pie.
I must tell you when I was first diagnosed with coeliac disease, I didn’t tend to make my own pastry very often (if at all!). But then after working at Juvela for a while, I discovered what culinary doors it would open, if I cracked on and mastered the art of making gluten free pastry.
Cherry Bakewell’s are another one of those fabulous classic cake recipes, that with just the tiniest bit of jiggery pokery can be made completely gluten free!
The inspiration to rustle up these gluten free Cherry Bakewell’s came from the great results I’d had when I made gluten free frangipane mince pies at Christmas!
One of the most requested recipes when I worked on the advice line at Juvela, was for gluten free dumplings. And then generally within the same enquiry, I would be asked about where to purchase gluten free suet?
Gluten free suet can be a bit tricky to get hold of. However, I have a great tip that I’m about to share with you. Which will mean, you no longer have to specifically source gluten free suet to make dumplings or suet puddings!
I know that we’ve only just waved a fond farewell to Christmas, but whilst things are still fresh in my mind I thought it would be good to jot down a few ideas, that I think may save some cash (and valuable time) in our house and hopefully in yours too, for when the festive season rocks up again!
