Gluten and Dairy Free Steamed Jam Sponge Pudding

Hello

Apart from a Christmas pudding, I haven’t made any other kind of steamed pudding.  I was inspired by Great British Bake Off a few months ago when they made traditional desserts to get into the kitchen.  I thought I would start with a basic jam sponge cake and from there I’ll work on some interesting flavour combinations.

I took this round to my sister’s and we enjoyed this as a family with some Alpro dairy free custard.

Enjoy!

Gluten, Dairy & Egg Free Apple & Date Bars

Hello

It’s surgery day for me tomorrow – fingers crossed (no pun intended) that my hand surgery goes well and I’m back in the kitchen before I know it.

Tonight’s recipe is for these super simple no bake cereal bars.  These are great to make on a Sunday and wrap up individually to use during the week.  They also make a great breakfast with some dairy free yoghurt and fresh fruit.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free Chicken Panang Curry

Evening everyone

Looking for some inspiration for dinner tonight?  You could try my easy to prepare gluten and dairy free chicken panang curry.  All the ingredients are naturally gluten and dairy free and should be easy to source from your local supermarket.  The addition of the coconut milk makes this sauce lovely and creamy without the need for any dairy.

I’m supposed to be having a get things done weekend after spending the last two weekends in London – the house is a bit of a tip, the website needs updating and I’m having surgery next week on my left hand so need to prepare for that as well.  Instead I spent the day with my three month old niece eating some lovely gluten and dairy free cake in a cafe and tomorrow I’m meeting up with a friend.  Going to try and squeeze everything I need to do into tonight but I’ll probably be disorganised for next week – such is life.

Enjoy!

Gluten and Dairy Free French Toast Eggs In a Hole

Morning everyone

I love making this for breakfast at the weekend – it is really just a fancy take on eggs and toast but I like it.  I like using the little cut out bit as a dipper for my runny egg yolk.

You can also make this seasonal by using a themed cookie cutter, I made these last Christmas with a Christmas tree cookie cutter for the hole in the middle.

Enjoy!

Gluten, Dairy and Egg Free Chocolate Peanut Pie

Hello everyone

I know I’m obsessed with peanut butter but as well as it tasting amazing it is also a great substitute for dairy.  If you can’t have peanuts you could try using a nut free butter like Wow butter – I’ve haven’t baked with it myself but I have sampled the Wow butter ice cream at Yorica which was fabulous.

This pie is perfect for a dessert when you have folk round as it can be prepared in advance and taken out the freezer for a bit before you are ready to serve.

Enjoy!
