Vintage Recipe – Gluten and Dairy Free Christmas Cake

christmas-cake

Hello

I shared this recipe the first year I had my website in 2014.  My Dad’s birthday is in December and for the last couple of years he has had a Christmas cake I’ve made for the website instead of a traditional birthday cake.  Tomorrow I’ll share the yule log I made for his birthday in 2015.

This was the first time I had ever made a traditional Christmas fruit cake in my life – the majority of the recipes I share on my website is just me experimenting and this recipe was definitely one of those.

Rather than age the cake with alcohol I’ve cooked and soaked the fruit in cranberry juice, orange juice and port so all the flavours are incorporated into the cake.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Black Forest Pavlova

black-forest-meringue

Hello

I love making pavlova as it is natural gluten and dairy free, the most difficult thing is finding a dairy free whipping cream to top it with.  Luckily I found this rice whip which I bought online from Vegan Town.  I had the idea of a black forest pavlova in my head for a while and was glad it worked when I finally got round to making it.  A beautiful crisp but chewy chocolate meringue topped with whipped rice cream, fresh berries and some dairy free chocolate chips – a perfect pudding for the festive season (or any other time of the year actually).

Enjoy!

Hello everyone

As I’m Scottish shortbread biscuits are a family favourite!  I’ve taken my basic recipe for gluten, dairy and egg free shortbread and given it a Christmas twist with the addition of cranberries, cinnamon and orange zest.

I’ve also got a couple of other Christmas biscuit recipe coming soon in the run up to Christmas – gingerbread Christmas Trees, Stained Glass stars and linzer biscuits.

Gluten, Dairy and Egg Free Peppermint Creams

There is nothing better than coffee and mints after a big dinner – especially your Christmas dinner.  If you can’t find any in the shops that are both gluten and dairy free then why not use this recipe to make your own.  They are really easy to make and you can prepare in advance and leave in the fridge until you dip them in the chocolate to finish.

This recipe is also egg free as well.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Mince Pies

Hello

Welcome to the first of my Christmas recipes for 2016.  I’ll be sharing a number of brand new gluten and dairy free Christmas recipes over the next few weeks and a couple of my favourite vintage Christmas recipe from 2015 and 2014.

I can’t believe I have had the website for two Christmases now and never shared a recipe for mince pies! I made these as little tartlets topped with pastry stars but you can use the same ingredients to make deeper pies with a traditional lid if you prefer.

Enjoy!
