So it has been years and I haven't posted.
2017 is the year that I post regularly. A little late I appreciate for this "resolution" but starting now.....

The nice people at sukrin sent me some goodies.
So I decided firstly to try the bread mix. As little boy likes the genius seeded bread best (his spotty bread he calls it) I thought he might like this mix as it is full of sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
I put in oven and waited. Out came this....
Little boy was told to wait for it to cool.
A little while later we sliced into it...
Now I love seeded bread so this was right up my street. But this was much more seeded than genius so I nervously handed the boy a slice. He wolfed it down. "I like my new bread mummy can I have some more". In fact even gluten eating hubby who normally won't touch gf bread liked it.
So there you go. First impressions aren't always right. And this bread gets a huge thumbs up in this house.
Been meaning to make carrot cake for a while. So we decided let's give it a go.
I recently puchased world of food 101 gluten free recipes magazine and it has a carrot cake recipe so I gave it a go.

After a trip to Lakeland I found these fab cutters.
So I thought let's give jammy dodgers a go. I surfed the net and found this recipe.http://www.greatbritishchefs.com/community/gluten-free-jammie-dodgers-recipe so decided to give them a go.
Taste wise a huge success. But I need to perfect them. I think I cooked them a couple of mins too long as browner that I would have liked. They also are a little bit too crumbly for my liking. But I am pretty sure that next time I bake them they will be perfect. The munchkins love them and that's what matters.
I have tried in the past to make a replacement gluten free version with varying levels of success.
However this morning whilst finishing off our gf carrot cake (more on that later) I was stuck by a brain wave. Marzipan!!!

Waitrose food magazine is a favourite in our house as usually lots of tasty in season recipes. It's a bargain too as is free to John Lewis credit card holders.
Anyway I picked up one a couple of weeks back and was excited to see a
Number of recipes which involved cooking with vegetables. Now we all know carrot cake is delicious so it seems to me that we should be putting more veg on our cakes as I have noticed a lot of thes
e recipes are gluten free and also they are often lower in fat as you don't need to put as much fat in.
Anyway the resulting cake was totally delicious and was devoured by the family.
The small ones got to put the pistachios on top which they loved. There was plenty of accidental fingers in the icing too. I suspect this was anything but accidental but the icing was lovely so who can blame them.
