Mmmm moussaka I love it! Now, my take on moussaka isn’t the true authentic dish that you would expect to get served up in beautiful Greece. But, it is nice and easy to pop together, extremely tasty and naturally gluten free!

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!
I’ve discovered another great recipe that works really well as a gluten free version. This rhubarb and custard cake (the original recipe is from BBC good food, and has tons of great reviews) is lovely! It’s nice and easy to make too, and it’s a perfect way of using rhubarb, that is in season at the moment. The rhubarb I used for this cake came fresh out of my dad’s garden!
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.
Yet another great gluten pastry recipe to share with you! And this time it’s a real corker – gluten free steak and kidney pie!
I must tell you when I was first diagnosed with coeliac disease, I didn’t tend to make my own pastry very often (if at all!). But then after working at Juvela for a while, I discovered what culinary doors it would open, if I cracked on and mastered the art of making gluten free pastry.
Cherry Bakewell’s are another one of those fabulous classic cake recipes, that with just the tiniest bit of jiggery pokery can be made completely gluten free!
The inspiration to rustle up these gluten free Cherry Bakewell’s came from how easy and what great results I’d had when I made gluten free frangipane mince pies at Christmas!
One of the most requested recipes when I worked on the advice line at Juvela, was for gluten free dumplings. Within the same enquiry, I would generally be asked as to where you were able to buy gluten free suet from?
Gluten free suet is a little tricky to get hold of. However, I have a great tip that I’m about to share with you. Which will mean, you no longer have to specifically source gluten free suet to make dumplings or suet puddings!
