What's Cooking (213)

I don't know Jan - Jan is Linda's mum. Linda used to love eating her mum's Christmas cake but like so many of you once you realise you can't eat wheat those special treats are off limits. Linda entered one of my Facebook competitions with this comment on what she would bake if she won some Bakers' Magic gluten free flour. 

My mum's Christmas cake but converted to gluten free! That would be awesome!

Linda didn't win any flour (this time) but here is my version of her mum's fruitcake

As a family we really don't eat Fruit Mince Tarts at Christmas time, shortbreads, fruitcake - Yes - fruit mince tarts - No. Apparently a lot of people do eat them (who knew!) & fruit mince tarts was a popular Christmas recipe request on my recent Facebook give-away competition. One person even describing the brown sugar short pastry that she oh so missed. It was obvious to me that I had to make, bake & taste some (& use brown sugar in the pastry).

Honestly I bit into one of these tarts & my first thought was 'Oh my'. With a big smile on my face I told the rest of the family 'I don't like fruit mince tarts (I find them simply too sweet) but these are wonderful'.

There was a bit of resignation on my husband's face knowing that although he doesn't like fruit mince tarts he was going to have to try them. His response after taking a bite 'Oh my'. 

A couple of weeks ago (November 2017) I ran a competition on Facebook & the prize was some Bakers' Magic gluten free flour. To enter the comp all you needed to do was comment on what Christmas goodies you would like to make with the flour. Gingerbreadfruitcakepanettoneplum pudding were all listed by competitors as well as these delicious Brandy Snaps.

I hope you enjoy my Panettone Inspired Bread as much as my family did. They also loved my Panettone Bread & Butter Pudding. Enjoy!

Pfeffernuse

There are some times in the year when tradition takes hold & there is an expectation from the extended family that the goodies that grace your table year after year will continue to be there. To continue doing that sometimes those well loved recipes need to be converted to gluten free - that is something I love doing. The following is my gluten free version of a Pfeffernuse (Peppernut) recipe sent in by Skye - thank you so much for sharing. I've included the original recipe. 

Please order before 14th December for pre Christmas delivery.

Orders will be dispatched until 21st December.

Dispatch closed from 21/12/17 until 8/1/18

If you love the combination of almonds, honey & butter then you simply have to try these Bee Sting Bikkies.

From time to time I run give-away competitions on my Facebook page (Decadent Alternatives = Gluten free Baking) & one of the conditions of entry is to comment on what you really miss or what you would like to make if you won some Bakers' Magic gluten free flour. A Bee Sting Cake was one of those answers. I had to see if I could make one gluten free as I couldn't resist the combination of brioche style bread with honey toffee, almonds & creme patisserie. After many attempts I'm happy to say that these Bee Sting Buns are YUM!

The hardest part in making a gluten free Chocolate Ripple Cake is deciding what flavour it's going to be!
