I was really happy with how this gluten free Black Forest gateau turned out. The original recipe I used came from the BBC Good Food website. And like with so many standard recipes, with just a few tweaks and ingredient checks, it was possible to make it completely gluten free.
Gluten free treats
Give me a Florentine any day over a cream cake. I just love them. The only problem is, many shop bought Florentines contain gluten, and therefore are off limits for us gluten free gang. But I’ve got some great news, I had a go at rustling some homemade ones up the other day and they turned out super!
I do love a good Christmas gift edit. And over the years, I’ve discovered some unique things, by checking out what other people have shared within their edits on blogs or instagram accounts.
So, this year, I thought I would put together a little Christmas gift edit of my own. Sharing a few ideas of things that I think you may like to give and receive!
This dark chocolate and ginger tart with its crunchy, warming ginger base, lightly whipped chocolate mousse centre, glossy ganache topping and dusting of cocoa powder, is indeed a very indulgent pudding. But it’s good! And anybody who loves a rich chocolate/ginger combo would be giddy with excitement to have this served up to them.
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 sprinkle of chopped walnuts and finished with 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!
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!
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!
I’d heard great things about LEON restaraunts and their super gluten free offerings. So was delighted to discover that they had opened a branch at Cheshire Oaks (one of my favourite places to shop!). And on Wednesday, after a spot of Christmas shopping with my fabulous buddy Carol, we called in for our tea.
