American Sweetcorn Pancakes

These naturally gluten free and dairy free pancakes are amazing and great for breakfast or brunch.  We had them with scrambled egg and a few mushrooms, but my husband suggested that next time they would taste even better with a few rashers of bacon on top!  I must admit, I added a squeeze of tomato ketchup on top of mine.

Here is the recipe – you will need: … Continue reading

Eat More Fish – Thai fish cakes

Continuing the theme of ‘eat more fish’ I made Thai fish cakes for supper last night.  I wanted to find a recipe that had just fish and not bulked up with potato and the first recipe I tried ended up in a sloppy mess.

This is my adaptation of an Angela Hartnett recipe, I was really pleased with the outcome, the texture was quite meaty and the flavour had a slight spicy kick to it.  It’s a personal taste thing, but next time I think I’ll be brave and add more Thai curry paste as we do love it hot! … Continue reading

Schar Sweet Brioche Rolls

I remember these when they were by Dietary Specials and called breakfast rolls.  The first time I had them I remember thinking they were lovely and just like cakey bread.  I’m not surprised Schar rebranded them and called them Brioche.  I often have a packet in the cupboard for when I need a quick snack.  They are lovely with just jam or banana and are very satisfying.

The other day I made some Almond Macaroons, I only need the whites of two eggs for this recipe so I was left with two yolks.  I also had a couple of the Brioche rolls left that were beginning to go a bit stale so I though I would try and make a ‘bread and butter’ pudding. … Continue reading

Almond Macaroons

These are my most favourite treats to bake, they take no time at all and only have four ingredients.  They are naturally gluten free and dairy free too!  Everyone who has them can’t stop eating them, they are very much a favourite.  My hubby reckons they remind of him of Farleys Rusks, and come to think of it, I do too. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do….. … Continue reading

Sausage Nut Stuffing Cake

At the weekend I did a practice Christmas dinner instead of a Sunday lunch.  I have a fairly new oven so I wanted to make sure that everything cooked OK for the big day.  I have seven coming for Christmas lunch this year, not as many as I have done in the past, but it’s a nice number.  This sausage nut stuffing cake is delicious, I found the recipe years ago on the web and I have converted it to be gluten free. It can be made dairy free too, just use dairy free spread instead of butter.  I must apologise for the lack of pictures of the finished cake, but I was so intent on dishing up dinner before it got cold that I forgot to take a picture of it when it came out of the oven, it wasn’t till it was on my plate did I remember! … Continue reading

Fish Finger Sandwich

I wouldn’t call this a recipe as such, more of an idea.  However, it’s a very scrumptious idea and I have to say, when I thought about making this I got very excited as I can’t remember the last time I had a fish finger sandwich, not a gluten free one that’s for sure.  It didn’t take long to make and there wasn’t much clearing up to be done after either, so go and treat yourselves and make this too. … Continue reading

Victoria Sandwich Cake

I like to think I eat healthily most of the time, but occasionally I just hanker for something just a little naughty, but nice. This recipe for Victoria Sandwich or Vanilla Layer Cake, whatever you want to call it, is so easy and makes a rather large cake for you to add whatever filling you like.  … Continue reading
