Really giddy to share this recipe for a gluten free blackcurrant pie, as it’s one of my favourite puddings that my grandma used to make, and since being diagnosed with coeliac I have never made myself a gluten free version……until today! And what’s really nice, is the blackcurrants I’ve used for this pie, have come from my dad’s next-door neighbours garden. She let me pop in the other day and pick myself a container full!
Doves farm gluten free plain flour
It’s year ago today since my blog went live, and I thought it would be nice to pop together a special cake to celebrate the 1st Birthday of Coeliac by Design!
There are a quite a few things that have only become popular since I have diagnosed with coeliac disease. One of them is red velvet cake – something I have neither eaten nor made, so thought it would be nice to pop one together!
I wanted to chat a little about gluten free store cupboard essentials. As personally, I feel that along with eliminating cross-contamination, having a well-stocked cupboard with ‘safe’ basic foods you regularly use is one of the key’s to maintaining and managing a great gluten free diet at home with ease!
Although I know it’s not the same for everyone, I loved my school dinners. I remember with fondness, sitting in the classroom as the delicious (yes, delicious!) food smell intensified the closer it got to lunch time. Feeling desperate for lessons to finish, so I could get in the dinner queue!
We were fortunate to have a great cook called Mrs Dodd. However, she took no messing from us kids, and would think nothing of banging her rolling pin on the counter if we got too rowdy. Mrs Dodd did have a soft heart though, and if we were well behaved, we got the chance to scrape out and enjoy the left overs from the pudding tins. The syrup sponge one being the best of all, with its ‘sweet gooeyness’ firmly wedged into the corners of the tin!
Another favourite pudding of mine, which was regularly served up at our school, was Manchester tart. And it appears from chatting to others, that I’m not on my own. So, thought it would be nice to pop together a gluten free version, to take me (and I hope you too) back down, a very happy memory lane!
