The addition of ground almonds sets this cake apart from others, and gives it a a rich and tender crumb. Serve warm with a dollop of cream for a truly luxurious pudding.
Gorgeously fruity traditional Irish loaf with a little twist. You can easily substitute spelt or gluten free flour for wheat flour. I've tried it with both and it's delicious. It's also a good recipe to have as a treat if you're watching your weight.
A simple recipe that is pretty much undetectable as gluten free. Try it see if any one realises. It rises better than the normal cake too.
Fantastic chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall has donated to TREE AID this wonderful cake. Hugh belives: "Villagers in Africa pick fruit, nuts and leaves straight from the trees around their villages-food doesn't come more local than that. It's a lifeline for them and vital that we do what we can to ensure they have enough trees for food and the many other products and benefits trees provide."
Pear Fairy Cakes. This recipe is gluten free and dairy free.
This is a delicious no bake, vegan, soy-free, gluten-free "cheese"cake, with no refined sugars. It's made with walnuts, cashews, cocoa, dates and banana. The filling is slightly sweet, with a hint of banana and cocoa; it’s creamy with the consistency of “real” dairy cheesecake, but is lighter and less rich. The base is chewy, fudgy and totally chocolatey – complementing the filing extremely well. As a side note - raw-food purists wouldn't call this raw (as cashews are used).
A beautiful moist light cake with complex and full flavours of oranges and orange zest. Super easy to make, and people love it! Serve in wedges with a mound of whipped cream or ice cream. To make this completely gluten free - use gluten free baking powder. You can find this in health shops and in larger supermarkets.
This recipe was given to me by a neighbour very many years ago. It's quick and easy and makes a very moist cake. See the footnote on how to make it gluten free.
For those of us who can't have gluten, try this banana bread for a treat with tea. I like to use maple syrup instead of adding so much sugar. This mixture will make 1 loaf or 24 muffins.
This is a classic Victoria sponge modified from a family recipe to be gluten free. Over 30 years ago I was diagnosed with coeliac disease and I thought then as a child bye bye cakes, biscuits and everything else that people without coeliac disease can have. Then 20 odd years ago I went through some of my late grandmother's recipes and thought to myself I'm going to make these gluten free so that others with coeliac disease and wheat intolerance can still enjoy the things they always did before diagnosis.
