An old fashioned victoria sponge cake is a sure win, not many people will turn it down. Oh and if you didn’t tell someone it was gluten free, I am sure they wouldn’t know the difference! This sponge is light and very moreish, it doesn’t last long in our house. Sometimes you just can’t beat a classic! INGREDIENTS 125g / 5oz butter 150g / 5oz caster sugar 200g / 7oz…

GLUTEN FREE GINGER & RAISIN FLAPJACKS

A twist on a classic – the flapjack. By using gluten free oats, these become coeliac friendly. I have always loved flapjacks, its the kind of thing I would bake often when I was a kid, just because they were so quick and easy to do. Now, I thought I would enhance the recipe a little. After playing around with a few flavours, I decided to incorporate some ginger and…

GLUTEN FREE APPLE & CINNAMON CAKE

I love using cinnamon in baking, I used to be obsessed with cinnamon swirls from the bakery until I was forced to stop having them (I am still working on finding a good gluten free recipe for those!). This apple and cinnamon cake is so delicious and by incorporating the fruit into the mixture it helps with the texture and stability of the cake. It remains very moist and is…

I love the two tone effect with the icing, I…

All products mentioned are specifically branded as gluten free items, rather than…

GLUTEN FREE PARKIN RECIPE

Parkin is a traditional autumn cake that has been around for well… far longer than you or me! It is tough and oaty, rich in flavour yet not too sweet. I haven’t had parkin since I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease around 7 years ago, and I thought it was about time I work on a gluten free recipe. I have to say this one worked a treat! It was…
