Dairy Free, Gluten Free Pain d’Epices

Dairy Free, Gluten Free Pain d’Epices

I’m still working towards a love of Christmas cake. To me, it’s just a pile of boozy dried fruit – something to make you regular and drunk at the same time. Just like medicine. It’s a bit unfortunate really, because it’s actually a great recipe to make gluten-free. All that […]

Easiest cupcakes in the world (made from scratch)

Easiest cupcakes in the world (made from scratch)

Baking Challenge – Sponsored by Pyrex     They don’t really know what they got themselves into. Pyrex dropped a bunch of non-stick receptacles on my doorstep while I was in Barcelona recently. I got back and realized that they would probably want me to write about using them. But […]

Lemon Cake

Lemon Cake

I was asked recently to step back to age six. I was to think of my favourite cake, and make it for the BBC Good Food ME team – they wanted to know what an Australian food blogger thought they should take from my food-clogged mind, and put in their […]

Sweet Potato Muffins

Sweet Potato Muffins

I haven’t made any gluten free dishes for ages, and my husband is stomping around the house grumpy and with a swollen belly. Time for a little appeasement methinks. Not only that, I have been told by my own doctor that the fatigue and headaches I experience may possibly also […]

Recipe: Nan’s Lemon Slice

Totally old school today – taking a trip down memory lane. Aunty Nancy (well, great Aunt) passed away at the age of 97 last week. She was a fab lady. I remember going around to her place, with her golf-green lawn, fresias and camelias. We’d sit around the red formica […]

Raspberry and Rose Layer Cake

Raspberry and Rose Layer Cake

This cake is not nearly as bad as it looks. It’s very low in sugar, and despite all that cream, there is no other fat in the layers (thereby knocking out all the butter in a standard cake) – and you could always use a light cream. It can be […]

Flourless lime and coconut cake

Flourless lime and coconut cake

This is officially the best cake in the world (according to me). Wheat free, grain free, dairy free, low in fat (but not in sugar – hey, you can’t have it all), moist, finely textured, exotic, pretty, keeps well and is incredibly easy to make. AND it tastes like lemon […]

Mocha meringue torte with hazelnut crumble

Mocha meringue torte with hazelnut crumble

This one came to be because it was a friend’s birthday. Not just any friend, but another food blogger. Not just any food blogger, but a food blogger who has been to Paris to study Cordon Bleu cookery (Francine’s blog is here). I stupidly suggested I’d make a cake, and […]

Gluten Free, Dairy Free cupcakes – as easy as 1, 2, 3

It’s amazing where your best recipes come from. This was my son’s maths homework. His male, non-cooking teacher sent home a recipe that was to be used to practice multiplication. He sent home the ingredients for 6 cupcakes, and asked students to make him 12 or 18 at a time. […]
