What better way to get back into baking than with this Gluten Free Salted Caramel Chocolate Tart! It was really therapeutic being able to do something I love, even though I needed some help with baking (I’ll be limited with moving for some time yet following my back surgeries).
If you want to impress friends over dessert I’d highly recommend you make this tart! It’s seriously restaurant worthy, but quite rich so you only need a small slice.
Thanks to the Life Made Simple Blog for the original recipe that slightly modified to be gluten free and to my husband for helping me in the kitchen as always.
Caramel slice has always been on the list of treats I wanted to make gluten free, but hadn’t quite got around to it until now with this Gluten Free Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel Slice.
Fast forward several years and I finally decided to give it a go, adding my own little twist. End result was this Dark Chocolate Salted Caramel slice and it is truly AMAZING.
Not usually one to toot my own horn, but after tweaking the recipe this past weekend and taste testing the slice again (hey someone has to do it) I know you will love it! How can you go wrong with the combination of salted caramel and chocolate?
I made this Gluten Free Chocolate and Salted Caramel Layer Cake for Jesse’s birthday on the weekend. You see, Birthdays have always been an important event in my family. Celebrations over lunch/dinner with presents and cake are a must. Just like Christmas it’s not about the presents, but we love a good good excuse to show our loved ones how special they are.
So naturally when Jesse and I started going out (aka dating) I felt the need to show him how you really celebrate a birthday. In the past this has included gifts like lego and a Playstation for the child at heart; but most importantly, a new birthday cake each year.
I decided I would make my own Wedding Cupcakes and although their was a few hiccups along the way I am really proud of how they turned out! My sister kindly agreed to make the top tier cake (a caramel mud cake) to match my cupcakes – a selection of Brown sugar cupcakes with Salted Caramel filling and buttercream and Vanilla cupcakes filled with Lemon curd.
The majority of the cupcakes were made with normal flour, but I also made a batch of gluten free salted caramel cupcakes for a few guests and my sister and I who are gluten free.
In the end I have to say the best part of baking my own wedding cupcakes was being able to share my love for baking with our guests. It gave me great pleasure to see some guests devour not 1 but 2 cupcakes on the night although there weren’t any leftovers.
Here are the recipes for my salted caramel and vanilla with lemon curd cupcakes in case you might want to bake them one day. Continue reading →
A few weeks ago I put in a special birthday request for this Gluten Free Salted Caramel Pecan Cheesecake and my wonderful fiancé was kind enough to make it for me.
Initially I thought the pecans might have been a bit much but it really finished off the cake. I also think it might just be THE best cheesecake I have ever eaten… Although the Lemon Curd Cheesecake I baked for Jesse’s birthday comes in a close second.
Now I can’t take credit for baking this yummy cheesecake but I can share the recipe.
