I’ve been at it again, rustling up a gluten free version of another delicious classic. This time I’m bringing you a rather wonderful recipe for a sticky toffee pudding cake.
If you’ve never had the pleasure of tucking into a golden square of scrunch, you’ve been missing a real treat!
Scrunch is similar in texture to flapjack, with the same familiar flavours going on too. It’s deliciously crunchy, buttery, syrupy and EXTREMELY moreish (you’ve been warned).
One of the many joys of writing a gluten free food blog, is testing out recipes. While most of the time this simply involves rustling up gluten free versions of classics that I’ve enjoyed prior to being diagnosed with coeliac disease, sometimes it can be trying something completely new to me, which was the case for these gluten free butterscotch blondies.
If you’re not too sure what blondies are, they’re like brownies but flavoured with sugar instead of chocolate and they’re delicious!
Whilst it’s brilliant that many eateries can safely cater for people with coeliac disease (or anybody that requires a gluten free diet), unfortunately, there are a few that don’t quite get it right. I personally feel the lack of understanding, of how crucial a strict gluten free diet needs to be for people living with coeliac disease and the fact that some people choose the diet as a lifestyle option, (but are not always committed to the diet) seems to have caused confusion about the true need and meaning of a gluten free diet.
I’m so excited to be sharing this fabulous recipe for white chocolate and cranberry cookies with you. I’d been wanting to get a cookie recipe on my site for a while now, and last week I finally went on the hunt for THE recipe that I felt would work well in gluten free format. Well I can tell you, I hit gold when I picked out this white chocolate cookie recipe from Sweetest menu.
It’s funny, how some foods that didn’t thrill me before being diagnosed with coeliac disease, I’ve suddenly become a fan of. Pies being a classic example.
Whilst I’ve made lots of large savoury gluten free pies and quiches, I thought it would make a nice change to have a go at making some small individual ones. The perfect snack to grab from a buffet table or to savour with a nice ice-cold glass of fizz!
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.

Here is another rather super recipe to share with you. This gluten free ginger spiced cake has a yummy, soft, golden buttery crumb, that is perfectly spiced with warming ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. And, when decorated with a generous drizzle of glace icing, and chopped crystallised stem ginger, it’s ramped up into a a fabulous teatime treat!

Many people believe that gluten free baking is tricky, but over the years I’ve discovered that it’s really not that much different from standard baking and is certainly worth the effort.
