Gluten Free Rocky Road

Gluten Free Rocky Road

Today’s new recipe is Gluten Free Rocky Road! It’s such a fun and easy slice to make and perfect for party season!!

I created more of a traditional rocky road slice using marshmallows, peanuts and coconut, but you can adapt this quick and easy recipe to include any ingredients. I’ve seen some recipes with pistachios, turkish delight or even white chocolate. Just remember to double check the confectionery you plan to use is gluten free if you plan to make a GF version.

Gluten Free Lemon Mascarpone Tart

Gluten Free Lemon Mascarpone Tart

This Gluten Free Lemon Mascarpone Tart has a special place in my heart. It was the first dessert Jesse (my husband) made for me when we started dating. The night we had this tasty dessert I actually arrived at Jesse’s to find the house empty, with a series of sticky notes that eventually led me to the tart in the fridge.

So technically I can’t claim this recipe as mine, it’s really my husband’s. It only requires 6 ingredients and goes perfectly with a scoop of ice cream or cream. I would be doing a disservice to you all if I didn’t share the recipe. So here it is!

Gluten Free Lemon Yoghurt Syrup Cake

Gluten Free Lemon Yoghurt Syrup Cake

This Gluten Free Lemon Yoghurt Syrup Cake has been on my “bucket list” to make for a while. It requires only 7 ingredients and can be made in under an hour! Oh and did I mention it tastes utterly delicious!!

My husband came home one day raving about a Lemon Yoghurt Syrup Cake his work colleague made for morning tea. So, I had to bake one and taste what all the fuss was about! After making my first syrup cake earlier in the year, a Gluten Free Lime and Poppyseed Syrup Cake, I also learnt a few things and wanted to test them out on a similar recipe.

Now I can’t claim the original recipe as mine, but I cannot credit the exact source as I found the recipe from an old newspaper. I did however modify the recipe to be Gluten Free and contain a extra punch of lemon flavour. I think you will be happy with the end result if you bake it.

All you have to do is print the recipe and grab your ingredients and you will be ready to go!

Gluten Free Blueberry Pie

Gluten Free Blueberry Pie

On Monday night, I had the desire to bake this Gluten Free Blueberry Pie. We purchased a bag of frozen blueberries a few weeks ago when they were on special, and what better way to use them than to make pie? I’d never baked or tasted blueberry pie before, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to do so.

The end result was this heavenly pie, with a beautiful flaky crust and blueberry filling, with a hint of cinnamon to taste. A truly great dessert for a cold wintry night. If blueberries aren’t your thing you might like a few of my other pies such as Key Lime Pie, Pumpkin Pie or Apple Pie with Cinnamon Crumble.

This recipe also marks the occasion of my 100th blog post! I’m super excited to have achieved this, given it’s just a side hobby amongst raising a toddler and working part time. I started out blogging as an escape from my full time job as a Dietitian. Now it’s almost a part time job in itself and I absolutely love it! I love sharing gluten free recipes that everyone can enjoy. I share both my own recipes and recipes from well known authors that I’ve modified to be gluten free. This recipe for example, comes from the Williams-Sonoma Pie & Tart recipe book that I modified to be gluten free and for my own taste preferences.

So, I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you to everyone who’s been following along on my journey thus far. I hope you continue to read my posts and bake my recipes. I get great satisfaction in people enjoying my food.

Love,
Amanda

Banana Puddings with Butterscotch Sauce – Gluten Free

Gluten Free Banana Puddings with Butterscotch Sauce

The winter weather has arrived in Melbourne which means it’s time for pudding, this Gluten Free Banana Puddings with Butterscotch sauce to be exact! These gluten free puddings are a great dessert to share with friends or just because you like bananas.

Like a lot of my recipes, you can easily substitute the gluten free flour for normal flour if you don’t need to follow a gluten free diet. Be sure to warm the puddings up and serve with a scoop of ice cream. If you run out of ice cream, a dollop of cream also goes nicely.

How about you give them a try this weekend? Feel free to share your baking efforts with me by tagging me on my Instagram account or Facebook page. Enjoy the rest of your week and thanks for reading.
