Sunday night I baked this Gluten Free Chocolate Almond Fudge Cake and it was yum! The cake has a delicious fudge centre and like the majority of recipes I share, it was super easy to make! I can’t take credit for this recipe though, as the original recipe came from a Coles magazine.
Sharing a new recipe each week often means I’m spending my spare time in the kitchen (which you all know I LOVE). A new recipe every week also means I have an abundance of sweets in the house, unless I gift the recipe to loved ones. But I don’t have any shame in sharing with you all that I regularly eat treats. As a Dietitian I’m all about a balanced diet, where “diet” means everyday eating. I eat plenty of fruit, wholegrains and vegetables and exercise regularly. But more importantly I eat what I feel like, when I feel like it and thoroughly enjoy it. I’ll only ever encourage avoiding certain foods if medically necessary.
If you ever have any questions for me or want to know more about my food choices send me an email at [email protected] In the meantime I’ll keep baking.
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
Nutella has been such a big hit these past 12 months, so I finally got on the bandwagon and made these Gluten Free Nutella Brownies, after a little nudge from my nutella loving husband of course!
The recipe comes from Nigella Lawson’s latest book, Simply Nigella and required zero modifications to be Gluten Free. Added bonus, the recipe only requires 4 ingredients (3 if you omit the icing sugar for decoration) and is super quick to make.
Perfect sneaky morning treat, or in my case, to take to my first mothers group.
