Gluten Free Chocolate Espresso Cake

Gluten Free Chocolate Espresso Cake

If you like the chocolate and coffee, you will LOVE this Gluten Free Chocolate Espresso Cake! It has a lovely subtle espresso flavour and is super moist. The cake doesn’t sit heavy in your stomach like some other flourless cakes can and is just an all round winning recipe.

I made this Chocolate Espresso Cake to celebrate my brother in law’s birthday a few weeks back and it was an absolute hit! I noticed he kept creeping back to the kitchen to cut another slice. That is really the reason why I love baking. I love to spoil others and make them enjoy and feel good about food.

I would love to hear what you love about baking? Feel free to comment on this post, on my Facebook or Instagram account or send me an email! Thanks also to Martha Stewart for the recipe I adapted

Gluten Free Lime and Poppyseed Syrup Cake

Gluten Free Lime and Poppyseed Syrup Cake

A few weeks ago I made this Gluten Free Lime and Poppyseed Syrup Cake for morning tea with friends. The catch up was postponed (due to sick children) but the cake didn’t go to waste with Jesse’s work colleagues graciously accepting their new role as my taste testers!

Admittedly this is the second time I’ve made this cake. The first time around I wasn’t satisfied with the cake’s texture. So after a few additional modifications I’m happy to share the recipe with you. The original recipe comes from the Women’s Weekly Afternoon Tea Cookbook.

Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies Gluten Free

Reese's Peanut Butter Cookies Gluten Free

You can blame my husband for these Gluten Free Reese’s Peanut Butter Cookies. They are filled with Reese’s pieces, Reese’s peanut butter chips and chocolate chips. Yum!

They’re my 7th peanut butter related recipe on the blog but hey who’s counting? On a more serious note, I love baking biscuits as they are so quick and easy to make. I also love that you you get to eat them almost straight away. Talk about instant satisfaction!

These biscuits will certainly give you instant satisfaction but let me know if you have a recipe you would like me to make as I’m always open to suggestions. Once again, thanks for reading.

Vanilla Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream Gluten Free

Gluten Free Vanilla Cupakes with Blackberry Buttercream

Monday night I was inspired to make these Gluten Free Vanilla Cupcakes with Blackberry Buttercream. We had an abundance of blackberries in the fridge and a few new piping tips I wanted to play with, so it was perfect timing. They turned out perfectly and were an absolute hit with the staff from Lyla’s childcare! I may have eaten one or two myself, but I couldnt resist sending Lyla’s carers a treat, as all the staff have been so great with her since she started.

These cupcakes are so light and fluffy and the blackberry buttercream adds a sweet but slightly tart flavour. Just YUM! The cupcake recipe is a gluten free version from Wedding Cupcakes that I have been meaning to share for a while. I’ve also shared a pretty tasty Peanut Butter Cupcake recipe if you’re looking for a different flavour.

Happy Wednesday!

Dark Chocolate Cranberry Florentines Gluten Free

Dark Chocolate Cranberry Florentines Gluten Free

These Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Cranberry Florentines are such a special treat filled with dried cranberries, a thin layer of dark chocolate and an abundance of nuts. They’re perfect with your cup of coffee or tea.

If you’ve always wanted to try baking florentines or learning to temper chocolate, I encourage you to give them a go. They are definitely worth the effort and are not that difficult to make.

Special thanks to Kirsten Tibballs who taught me how to temper chocolate with her youtube video on tempering chocolate. The original florentine recipe was also from her “Chocolate” cookbook. I just modified it slightly to suit my own taste preferences.
