New book, New Enthusiasm!

Hello everyone out there in the big wide blogging world.  I’m afraid I have been a little off my blogging game of late.  I haven’t blogged for weeks!

I think there are a number of reasons, one being that Spring has sprung and I have a renewed vigour for road cycling, I have got a bit obsessive for cycling the hills around town.  Also, I haven’t had the enthusiasm to bake new things, not that I haven’t been baking, I’m always cooking up something or other but I just haven’t blogged about them.

So, when I was visiting my Mum the other weekend, we were in town and I was perusing the cook books in WHSmith and came across this little number

Gluten Free Baking by Joy May
Gluten Free Baking by Joy May

I flicked through it and thought, yes, I like a lot of these recipes and I fancy giving them a go.  The book is a traditional baking book, in that it uses good old fashioned ingredients like sugar and golden syrup, so it’s not for those ‘sugar free’ fans out there!  I also like the fact that she uses Dove Farm flours, which are easy to buy in the supermarkets.

I made my first bake from the book today – Muesli cookies and they came out perfect. They were delicious, didn’t taste ‘gluten-free’ and I substituted the butter for Pure vegetable spread so that they are suitable for Vegan.  They made loads, so I took a small pile round to my daughter, who is vegan, and she woofed them down.  I shall be trying out many more of the recipes, so watch this space ♥
