I’ve got myself so excited to share this sherry trifle recipe, that I really don’t know where to start. So many words, so many trifle food memories… spotting it on a well laden sweet trolley, my mum making it every Christmas. You get it?!! Trifle brings me GREAT joy!
Easy gluten free recipes
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!
I was having a little hunt through my recipe books and came across this one for gluten free citrus muffins in my Juvela gluten free foods recipe folder.
These muffins are SO easy to pop together, but boy oh boy do they reward you well with a glorious little cake. Soft pale lemon sponge, with delightful tiny golden strips of orange dotted here and there and the unique tangy flavour that only a truly great marmalade can deliver. Finishing the muffins with a drizzle of glace icing really jazzes them up and the sugary sweetness compliments the citrus flavours perfectly.
Whilst I’ve already got a popular fruit scone recipe on the blog, I was keen to hunt down a good savoury variation for you to whip up too. I’d also been eager to test out scones made with buttermilk. I felt it would make them a bit squishier inside. I was right…it does!
Googling ‘scones with buttermilk’ I came across a smashing recipe over on Sainsbury’s food website. And it’s that very one I’ve jiggled about with to rustle up this recipe for gluten free cheese and red onion buttermilk scones.
I’m super excited to be sharing this gluten free lemon surprise pudding with you as it’s a real cracker!
My mum used to make lemon surprise pudding a lot and I always loved it. But it was one of those recipes I’d forgotten about until my sister-in-law, Kate, mentioned that she’d recently made it.
This lemon surprise pudding has everything you’d want from a pud. It has the most gorgeous light sponge topping and beautiful creamy lemon custard base. Which all happens as if by magic, whilst it bakes in the oven.
For many years, I had the absolute joy of being a part of my niece, and nephew’s birthday parties. As every year, my sister-in-law, Kate would invite me over to assist her in the kitchen to get the food prepped beforehand and also to then be on hand to help out, once the party was in full flow.
Kate always laid on a great party spread for the children to enjoy. And after the savoury bits and bobs had been cleared away, it was time for the sweet things to be brought out. The highlight always being the mini party cakes that Kate had rustled up.
Delighted to share this lovely simple recipe, for a rather delicious gluten free coffee and walnut cake with you. A good old classic, that is a favourite treat for many.
The original recipe I used for this coffee and walnut cake came from Nigella Lawson’s website and it works splendidly as a gluten free version.
I’ve only made these coconut tarts once and the day after I made them, I debated about playing about with the recipe. But a quick chat with my best friend, who had sampled and loved them, convinced me that I needed to stop faffing and just get on and tell you all about them.
These delicate coconut tarts with their buttery pastry base, generous helping of yummy raspberry jam and light (perfect ratio) coconut topping are a delicious treat. An ideal bake to offer up to friends and family with a nice cuppa when they drop by.
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.
