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 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 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!
Should there be a lifetime achiever award for a recipe, I reckon the ‘basic sponge cake’ should win hands down. As this simple recipe, can be used in literally hundreds of ways – and it’s so quick to pop together with fabulous results!
I’m a huge fan of Juvela gluten free mix, which is currently only available from pharmacies. But for a change I thought I would try out Doves farm gluten free self-raising flour to have a go at a gluten free Victoria sponge cake.
