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!

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 the 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. And then generally within the same enquiry, I would be asked about where to purchase gluten free suet?
Gluten free suet can be a bit 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!
The idea for these gluten free crispy cheese and onion potato bakes materialised from making basic potato cakes (which are simply, cold seasoned mashed potato, with a little added gluten free flour/mix, the mixture is then moulded into patties and pan fried…preferably in butter!). So yes, I popped these bakes together the other day and they were so good, that I needed to let you know about them too!
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!
I’ve been fancying making 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 which turned out to be exactly what I was after.
I wanted to get this really simple recipe for gluten free Madeira cake on my website, as not only is it a great traditional afternoon tea cake that can be sliced and enjoyed with a hot cuppa, it can also be used as a base for so many great puddings – such as trifle, tiramisu etc. And because of this, it opens up the possibilities to make and enjoy even more delicious gluten free treats!!
I had every intention to have been sharing a more festive recipe with you today, but unfortunately the yule log I made decided not to play and didn’t turn out well enough for me to shout about it! Will give it another go, but for now, it’s back to the drawing board for this week’s blog!!
So, moving on and with a complete change of direction, thought it would be nice to share with you a really tasty tea I popped together for me and Neil the other night. Pan-fried breaded cod and easy home-made chips!!
With the chillier days approaching I thought it would be a nice time to share with you this quick and easy gluten free plum crumble. The Perfect warming, comforting pudding, that can be popped together in no time at all.
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!
