I made this Gluten Free Black Forest Layer Cake for my husbands birthday last Tuesday! It was the first time I’ve made and tasted a Black forest cake before and I have to say I absolutely loved it. Oh and so did the birthday boy!!
The chocolate cakes were filled with white chocolate ganache and cherry jam and a dark chocolate icing to top finish off the cake. I realised I didn’t make quite enough ganache or cherry jam, so I made sure to double the quantities in the recipe below so you don’t run out!
I know this isn’t one of my quickest or simplest recipes, so I will forgive you if you don’t go out and make it this weekend. I’d seriously consider it for your next birthday celebration though, it was so divine. You might also want to read a little bit about why birthdays are so important in my family. I shared it on my blog last year with a recipe for Gluten Free Chocolate and Salted Caramel Layer Cake. Just excuse the fact the cake wasn’t very even shaped or flat.
Anyway, I must say thanks to Delicious magazine for the original recipe. I adapted it to be gluten free with a few less steps. Thanks for stopping by!
Since moving house, it’s been a little crazy in our kitchen — but the good kind of crazy with the end result being this Gluten Free Lemon Meringue Layer Cake. Jesse requested a Lemon Meringue Layer Cake for his birthday. Although a week late (yes I’m a terrible wife) and a trip to the hardware store later for a blowtorch, I am super proud of how the cake turned out.
If you want to make a special cake for a loved one I would highly recommend this amazing cake! The cake is filled with two layers of lemon curd and is super fluffy. Oh but don’t worry you don’t have to go out and buy a blowtorch to make this lemon meringue cake. You can simply use the oven to brown the meringue.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you’re having a great week!

Now and then Jesse and I make a ridiculously delicious dessert like this Gluten Free Red Velvet Cheesecake.
Often we bake these crazy desserts for my family and the recipes always turn out nothing short of amazing. This Red Velvet Cheesecake was no exception and despite appearances and the long instructions below it is very simple to make! The cake is super fluffy and the cream cheese frosting just tops off the cake!
If you want to make a “gluten containing” version simply replace the gluten free flour for normal flour. Either way you’re guaranteed this cheesecake will taste fantastic!
