I discovered this rather wonderful pear cake ((Torta di pere e mandorle) recipe by Elisabetta Ludica, on the BBC Food website. The only change I’ve made to the original recipe is to use gluten free flour. And after baking and testing it out a few times, I’d like to share the recipe with you.
Easy gluten free recipe
I do already have a smashing fruit scone recipe on my blog. And of course, it’s also one that can be used to make a gluten free cream tea. But after enjoying a very delicious scone, as part of a gf afternoon tea at Nunsmere Hall, I wanted to share a scone recipe that was a bit fancier. Something that may be fitting enough to hand out at a street party. Celebrating The Queens Platinum Jubilee maybe?!!
I’m a fan of coconut cake and have wanted to get a recipe for one on the blog for some time. The recipe I’ve gone with is something I popped together as a bit of a trial a few weeks ago and I was delighted with the result.
This gluten free iced coconut cake is quick and easy to make and is the perfect thing to have a go at if you’re new to baking, as you simply need to pop all the ingredients into a mixing bowl, whisk, spoon into a baking tin and bake. And then, as is by magic, you will be rewarded with a delicious, soft coconut sponge cake. Yum!
I’ve a box full of recipe cuttings that I’ve collected over the years. It’s a real eclectic mix of recipes that have caught my eye whilst looking through magazines/newspapers and ones that have been quickly scribbled down on scraps of paper. It’s from deep within this culinary treasure trove that I came across this glorious recipe for a raspberry, lemon and yogurt tea loaf. And it’s an absolute cracker!
It’s with sheer delight, that I share this truly scrumptious gluten free steamed sponge recipe with you. I have a steamed jam sponge recipe already on the blog, but I know how popular steamed syrup pud is, so I thought you wouldn’t mind me tempting you with this one too.

A few years ago, my cousin Rachel, arrived at one of our family get togethers with a tin full of gluten free ginger biscuits and they were delicious! It turned out, that the original recipe she’d used to make them came from our grandma.
Whilst I had the sheer pleasure of sampling many of my grandma’s homemade bakes, I couldn’t ever remember tucking into her ginger biscuits. So, it was a delight that Rachel had introduced them to me and also passed on the recipe, which I’d now like to share with you.
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.

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!

I’d been fancying making (and eating!) gluten free carrot cake cupcakes for ages and had been on the hunt for a recipe which I could use or adapt, to rustle some up. After a bit of searching, I spotted this ‘standard’ carrot cake recipe by Mary Cadogan on the BBC Good Food website. The recipe turned out to be just what I’d been looking for and rewarded me well with some very delicious, soft, fragrant, cream cheese frosted cupcakes.

I thought I would rustle up some crispy rice squares as a little indulgent treat. The perfect thing to make with a box of Nestle Go Free Rice Pops that I’d been given as a sample whilst at an allergy show in Liverpool.
