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!

Had a little bash at making a gluten free steamed jam sponge pudding the other day and was absolutely over the moon with how well it turned out. The sponge was perfectly light and compared fabulously to the ‘gluten filled’ steamed puddings I’d enjoyed many years ago!
Another lovely recipe to share with you! This gluten free ginger spice cake has a yummy, soft, golden buttery crumb, that is perfectly spiced with delicious ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. And, when decorated with a generous drizzle of glace icing, and chopped crystallised stem ginger, it’s transformed into a proper quintessential teatime treat!!
What a delightful recipe I have to share with you today! This delicious gluten free date and walnut traybake topped with lightly whipped coffee buttercream, a sprinkling of chopped walnuts and a dusting of cocoa really is the perfect afternoon treat. It’s also another really simple recipe to pop together and smells AMAZING whilst it’s baking! And may just be my current favourite bake!
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.
