Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread

This gluten free Irish soda bread is a lightly sweet quick bread that tastes best slathered with some extra Irish butter. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or any day, the way you remember.

What makes this Irish soda bread special?

I first developed this recipe many years ago when my gluten free son, who is now considerably taller than I am (and I’m not short) was in the early years of grammar school. They were “celebrating” St. Patrick’s Day by sharing Irish soda bread.

Since he was already gluten free, and necessity is the mother of invention, I developed this recipe. I’ve been making it ever since—and when my son is feeling generous, he will remember the grammar school times to me.

Irish Soda Bread is a quick bread, not a yeast bread (although frankly I think it would make a fabulous yeast bread). And it’s not your typical quick bread. … Read more

Dairy Free Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

This decadent dairy free gluten free chocolate cake is made with a ‘secret ingredient’ that makes it super tender without any added butter or eggs.

What makes this chocolate cake different?

The “secret ingredient” that replaces eggs and butter in this cake is mayonnaise. Mayonnaise is a stable emulsion made of eggs and oil.

I promise it doesn’t make the cake taste like mayo. I’m not a mayo person for the sake of it. I love this cake.

I don’t generally like to bake with neutral oils like canola and vegetable oil, since they tend to create an oily-tasting cake. Baking with mayonnaise allows us to bake without any dairy substitutes, but still bake a moist and tender, super decadent chocolate cake that is also dairy-free.

If you love mayonnaise, you won’t taste it in this cake. If you can’t stand mayonnaise, you still won’t taste it in this cake.… Read more

Almond Flour Banana Muffins | Grain Free

Almond flour banana muffins are naturally gluten free and grain free, and even Paleo, but taste just like “regular” banana muffins. The perfect hearty, grab and go breakfast!

A crowd-pleasing breakfast muffin

Listen, not everyone (in my house, even) loves the taste of almond flour. And when I bake, I like to keep my ideal reader (that’s you!) and my ideal eater (that’s my youngest) in mind.

She doesn’t like the taste of almond flour—but she really likes these muffins. That is a win. 🙇🏻‍♀️

If you add a few diced ripe bananas to the tops of them, like you see in the background of the photo above, they will spread a bit more on top. Try adding them to some, but not all.

They have everything I look for in a muffin: tasty, hearty, satisfying, and they freeze well. That means that I can make a batch, and let … Read more

Greatest Desserts ~ Yummy Pictures ~

I don’t know about you, however I really like chocolate fudge cake. When doing a round cake, lower parchment paper to fit the underside and don’t grease the sides of the pan. When the cake has cooled for 10 minutes, run a sharp knife across the fringe of the cake. Your cake comes out completely this manner, and does not dome up within the center. Two Little Cats had been nice at speaking with us throughout the process of selecting our marriage ceremony cake. We had been capable of style totally different flavours and have bespoke designs drawn for us. The cake on the day appeared wonderful and so they have been in a position to provide a wooden slice stand too. Everyone commented on how wonderful the cake regarded and tasted.

White Gluten Free Fruit Cake

This recipe for gluten free fruit cake is packed with colorful, delicious, fruits—and actually tastes good. Douse it in spirits or simple syrup, or serve it fresh.

Why we make fun of fruit cake/why this recipe is no joke

I think we Americans are at fault for making fruit cake into a joke. I think we didn’t necessarily have the palate for it, but started buying it and then making it—and made it bad.

Bad fruit cake is too dense, has fruit that is cloyingly sweet, or simply isn’t to your individual tastes. Make it yourself, and you can eliminate every one of those concerns.

This is a recipe for white fruit cake, which just means that it’s blond in color, not deep brown, like dark fruit cake. I became optimistic about making a really good gluten free fruit cake only when I learned of the idea of white fruit … Read more
