Gluten free chocolate banana bread

Gluten free chocolate banana bread sliced on a china plate

I’ve made this gluten free chocolate banana bread a few times now and love it. It’s a real joy to make. No fancy equipment needed. Not even an electric whisk.  This delightfully soft, flavoursome chocolate banana bread is studded with chocolate chips and is one of those cakes that tastes even better a day or […]

Gluten free pear cake

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. 

Gluten free pecan squares

Bringing you another super recipe that I think you’re going to love! I discovered the recipe for these gorgeous pecan squares over on once upon a chef’s website. These gluten free pecan squares have a lovely buttery shortbread base; however, the star of the show has to be the deliciously moreish, caramel pecan topping.

It was whilst living in Thurso, that I got to try Scotch pancakes for the first time. This was thanks to our neighbour, who we affectionately called Auntie Jannetta, popping round […]

For the last few years, I have ordered myself a Dairy Diary off Amazon (available to order from your milkman too). I love these diaries, as not only do they have just the right amount of space to jot down daily notes, they also have a fabulous hints and tips section and the most appealing […]

Lemon curd

Ingredients required to make lemon curd

Revised 7th August 2021 I first learnt how to make lemon curd in a home economics class at school (a long time ago, although it really doesn’t feel like it). Much to my delight, when I took it home, it was a huge hit with my mum and grandparents. And for a while, my family […]

Updated 15th April 2022 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.
