Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Tarta De Santiago.

Hope you are all having a good weekend.  Last week was tough with hospital appointments for me and an out of hours trip to the vet with Ollie cat.  Luckily he is on the mend now and this weekend is shaping up to be much better.  Next week is my last week in at work before I take an extended break over Christmas of three weeks – really looking forward to the time off to just chill out.

Today’s recipe is really special.  I am lucky enough to have lovely friends in Spain who all enjoy and cook amazing food.  They have shared their recipe for Tart de Santiago which is usually naturally gluten free and dairy free.  I love this cake, it is super light and fluffy but slightly crisp outside.  Definitely one to try out if you haven’t had it before.
