The Great British Bake Off Week 3 – Bread Week

Hello

This time it is bread week on The Great British Bake Off so I thought it would be good timing to share my latest gluten and dairy free bread recipe with you.

Tiger bread gets its name from the mottled crust that forms as the dough bakes in the oven.  A special paste is spread on the dough which gives the bread its distinct look and flavour.

Enjoy!

Hello

This is a totally late post – I never got round to posting my recipe for Tudor week on the Great British Bake Off!  So better late than never this is a gluten and dairy free recipe for a traditional pork and sage pie.

This is made using a traditional hot water crust pastry that I’ve adapted to allow for the gluten free flour and dairy free spread.

Enjoy!

Great British Bake-Off Week 7 – Gluten, Dairy & Egg Free Peanut Butter Chocolate Mousse Cakes

mousse cake

Hello

Sorry this post is a little late this week but hopefully it is worth the wait.  This week’s bake off was all about desserts. I’ve made some peanut butter and chocolate mousse cakes but I’ve really tried to keep the recipe as simple as possible.No complex ingredients or trying to judge how much gelatine to use – a perfect dessert for week nights as you can put it together the night before.

Enjoy!
