A mousse cake might seem like an impossible baking feat, but it actually couldn’t be simpler to prepare! These caramel mousse cakes are gluten, dairy and refined sugar free, but still pack a powerful flavour punch. A healthier fancy dessert, which anyone can make!
Is it Friday yet? Please say yes.
It’s been a long week in a series of long weeks – and I need my weekend. Time to regroup, to sleep in, to have breakfast at 11 am, to bake at a time other than it’s-getting-late-shouldn’t-you-be-thinking-of-sleep-rather-than-brownies o’clock.
This gluten free Halloween cake is what happens when a checkerboard cake meets a spooky ghost cake. It’s surprisingly easy to make, and it will certainly be the centrepiece at any Halloween party. The perfect gluten free Halloween treat, with a dairy free option!
Sometimes, Chemistry and baking collide in the most spectacularly unexpected (and amazing) ways. Take this gluten free Halloween cake, for example. Believe it or not, this was initially meant to be a “bumblebee cake”. I know. How on Earth did I end up with a spookalicious cake complete with marshmallow ghosts?!
These monster Halloween cake balls are the perfect Halloween sweet treat – easy to make, ridiculously delicious and super fun to decorate. They are gluten free, with a dairy free option, and are easily transformed into Halloween themed cake pops by simply throwing some cake pop sticks into the mix.
What do you call a sponge cake that hasn’t reached the cake stage yet? Cake sponge? This isn’t a trick question… I’m just overthinking (slightly) very irrelevant things again. I tend to do that – chasing an idea like an over-eager puppy, until words lose their meaning and I’m off on a completely different tangent. Strange brain, you say? I prefer ‘interesting’. ‘Entertaining’ works too.
This gluten and dairy free orange polenta cake is supercharged with citrusy goodness. It’s soft and dense, moist and crumbly, and most certainly delicious. The cake is soaked with an orange and lime syrup, which brings it to a whole new level. (Psst, there’s a video with step-by-step instructions, as well!)
Okay, first of all: raise your hand if you know what “polenta” is.
Polenta is basically the Italian version of grits. If you go into more detail, it turns out that polenta and grits are made from different types of corn… but they’re both some sort of coarsely ground cornmeal in the end.
