Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve blogged but I’m back with this yummy Gluten Free Lemon Meringue Pie so I’m sure all is forgiven?!
If you couldn’t already tell based on past recipes I LOVE lemon curd. So when my sister gifted us some lemons from their lemon tree it didn’t take long to decide on making this pie. Let me know if you get the time to bake this one, it won’t disappoint!
Growing up it was rare to have a packet mix cake or muffins in our house. Both my mum and grandmother were whizzes in the kitchen and the reason why I love baking.
Living in such a fast paced society, I realise not everyone has the luxury of time or motivation to bake from scratch though. So with a growing range of gluten free packet mixes available in the supermarket, I’ve decided to have a go at baking and reviewing a packet mix product.
For my first review, I chose to bake Orgran’s Caramel Fudge Brownie Mix having eyed off the product in the supermarket for a few months. Rather than providing you with the recipe, I thought I would talk about the pros and cons of the product, but please know I have not received any form of payment or sponsorship for my product review.
Pros for Orgran’s Caramel Fudge Brownies
– Only 2 ingredients required from your pantry (eggs & butter)
– Easy recipe: simply whisk together all ingredients in one bowl
– Takes 10 minutes to prepare
– Bakes in 15-20 minutes
– The caramel flavour is spot on
– Lasts for 4 days without going dry
Cons for Orgran’s Caramel Fudge Brownies
– The caramel fudge bits are too small for my liking
– Could pass for cake more than a dense brownie
Finally, would I bake these brownies again? Yes I would.
Thanks for stopping by,

Today I’m sharing these Gluten Free Almond Coconut Cacao Balls. They’re super quick and easy to make with no baking required. Simply because I wanted a quick, tasty and healthy treat. Also we have a stack of almond meal that needed to be used.
Actually we still have a lot of almond meal in the kitchen so feel free to send me any tasty recipes you might have with almond meal as a key ingredient.
Happy Wednesday to you all,

Over Easter I was on a mission to perfect gluten free hot cross buns but I failed. I tried a handful of new recipes and whilst they all tasted great I still wasn’t satisfied with the texture. They all just ended up too dense and lacking the light fluffy texture of normal gluten containing ones. Better luck next year I hope!
I also made a delicious spiced honey swiss roll for our family lunch on Easter Sunday, but sadly I didn’t get the chance to take a photo before it was devoured.
So… fast forward a month (wow time has just flown by) and here we are finally with a new recipe! This cake tastes great, is super easy to make (like most of my recipes) and it’s a delightful twist on the common orange & almond cake often available for gluten free folk in cafes, restaurants etc.
Give me a shout if you end up making it, or feel free to send me your gluten free hot cross bun recipes if you have a really good one!
When friends request a cake recipe they can make that is gluten free, I suggest this Chocolate Torte. It’s both easy to make and tastes heavenly.
It’s a recipe I’ve made several times yet I hadn’t yet shared on my blog. So I used a mother group catch up as the perfect excuse to make it again and share on The Naughty Dietitian.
Sadly I can’t claim the original recipe as mine (Thank you Williams-Sonoma). I did however make a few small changes to the recipe to make it a little quicker to make and adapted it to be gluten free.
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
