Gluten Free Lemon Meringue Layer Cake

Lemon Meringue Layer Cake (Gluten Free)

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!

Today I’m sharing my Top Gluten Free Recipes for 2014! 2014 brought lots of joy and a few new challenges.

My top 5 Gluten Free Recipes for 2014.

1. Persian Love Cake
2. My Wedding Cupcakes
3. Peppermint Log
4. Lemon Curd Slice

Lemon Curd Cheesecake Gluten Free

Lemon Curd Cheesecake Gluten Free

Jesse celebrated his birthday Thursday and I decided I wanted to bake this Gluten Free Lemon Curd Cheesecake, but the original recipe was written entirely in Polish. Sometimes I like to do things the hard way!

Now most people would probably just look for a similar recipe in English, but I didn’t think of that. Instead I employed the help of Google Translate to convert the original recipe to English and modify it to be Gluten Free. After some luck and a few laughs I gave the recipe a shot and the cheesecake turned out really well. I even managed to finish a whole slice, which doesn’t normally happen as I often find the last few bites of cheesecake too much.

Anyway, in case you like cheesecake or lemon curd, or both – I thought I’d share my take on the recipe.

Thanks for reading!

Gluten Free Lemon Brownies

Gluten Free Lemon Brownies

This past week I have been craving lemon flavoured baked treats which resulted in these Gluten Free Lemon Brownies. I blame Jesse (my partner) as he surprised me last weekend with my favourite dessert, Lemon Tart, and it was amazing.

So I decided to make yet another lemon flavoured treat, these lemon brownies and I’m sure glad I did. They’re biter size treats packed full of tangy lemon flavour and a lemon glaze to finish. Absolutely delicious!

Let me know if you make them. Thanks for reading.
