This dark chocolate and ginger tart with its crunchy, warming ginger base, lightly whipped chocolate mousse centre, glossy ganache topping and dusting of cocoa powder, is indeed a very indulgent pudding. But it’s good! And anybody who loves a rich chocolate/ginger combo would be giddy with excitement to have this served up to them.
I’m delighted to share this recipe for gluten free YUM YUM cake with you (the name alone makes me happy!). The original recipe for this gorgeous cake came from a little recipe book that belonged to my grandma. It’s one of those books that happened, thanks to various people kindly contributing their favourite recipes. I love this idea! And there really are some smashing recipes in the book. I will of course be sharing more of them with you over time, but for today, I’m going with the one my grandma contributed…..which is YUM YUM cake!
Had a little bash at making a gluten free steamed jam sponge pudding the other day and was absolutely over the moon with how well it turned out. The sponge was perfectly light and compared fabulously to the ‘gluten filled’ steamed puddings I’d enjoyed many years ago!
Another lovely recipe to share with you! This gluten free ginger spice cake has a yummy, soft, golden buttery crumb, that is perfectly spiced with delicious ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. And, when decorated with a generous drizzle of glace icing, and chopped crystallised stem ginger, it’s transformed into a proper quintessential teatime treat!!
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.
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!
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.
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.
