This gluten and dairy free roll cake combines the taste of comfort food with the appearance of a sophisticated dessert. The gluten free vanilla sponge is fluffy and flavourful, and goes wonderfully together with the dairy free chocolate frosting. The polka dot pattern adds the finishing touch, and only contains natural colourings.
I love polka dots. I also love complicating things. So, knowing this, and also knowing that I’ve never made a roll cake before… of course my first roll cake would be gluten AND dairy free, with a polka dot pattern. Of course.
This dairy free frosting just might be the fluffiest you’ve ever tasted. With only three ingredients, this vegan chocolate frosting recipe is easy and reliable, and gives the most delicious results. It’s also perfect for anyone with food intolerances or allergies, being gluten and dairy free.
This recipe is part of the “How To’s” post series, where I share my kitchen tips and tricks – as well as simple go-to recipes that don’t really fit into a category. Handy, ain’t it? You can find all the posts in the series here or in the recipe index under “How To’s”.
Frosting. The reason we all eat cake.
Yes, yes, the sponge part can be super tasty – but let’s be real: we’re all here for the fluffy, creamy, sweet awesomeness that is frosting.
These paleo brownies are about as healthy as a brownie can get – but that certainly doesn’t prevent them from being perfectly dense, fudgy, sweet and delicious. The dairy free avocado ganache makes these gluten free brownies even more spectacular… and no, you can’t taste the avocado. (Psst, there’s a RECIPE VIDEO as well!)
Let me tell you something about food bloggers:
(1) It feels bloody amazing to describe myself as one.
(2) We usually get the best recipe ideas at the worst possible moment (like that one time in the lab with concentrated hydrochloric acid in hand… or at two in the morning… or in the middle of a conversation with a normal person (a.k.a. not a food blogger) who’s now probably afraid of you after you started squealing excitedly about an ohmygosh-totally-brilliant-recipe-I’ve-just-thought-of).
(3) We count our food-blogging lives in terms of unusual milestones.
This healthy cookie dough ice cream sundae is everything you’d want a sundae to be, plus more. There’s the amazing vegan refined sugar free salted caramel sauce, the gluten free cookie dough, and the dairy free ice cream – which are all individually amazing, but together… they will blow your mind.
Let’s talk about bananas. They’re the one fruit I couldn’t do without (although currently, I’d say the same for watermelon, but that’s because it’s hooooooot). They’re this magic fruit that makes decadent milkshake-like concoctions which are actually healthy, as well as ice cream that you can eat for breakfast.
