Gluten Free Recipes
Looking for a gluten free recipe, whether it is because of general health reasons, or becasue you suffer from gluten intolerance? You’re in the right place!
Some of the recipes here also cater for people with other dietary requirements, including vegetarians and those who are dairy intolerant.
But don’t forget, these recipes can also be enjoyed by those with no dietary requirements. Also, be assured that I have tested most of them on my non-Coeliac family and friends – and I’ve had no complaints so far! :-)
I was given Sue Shepherd’s recipe book, ‘The Gluten-free Kitchen’ for Christmas and have already made two cakes out of it. The book has wonderful photos and easy recipes that don’t involve too many ingredients.
For my Mum’s birthday I decided to make the Banana Hazelnut Cake. I was intrigued to see that the recipe included 150g mashed potato (instead of flour), however the forward of the recipe actually notes not to be alarmed about this unexpected ingredient.
The cake turned out amazing and everyone highly enjoyed it – some even going back for seconds – and you wouldn’t even realise that More >
It was my uncles birthday and quite late in the afternoon we decided we should make a cake for him. He is also a coeliac so I searched on the internet for a quick and easy flourless chocolate cake recipe. I decided on this cake from allrecipes.com.au.
While the cake turned out rather flat (in hind-site I should have used a smaller cake tin) it got the thumbs up from everyone and was demolished very quickly. In the rush of things I forgot to take a photo of the entire cake but there is one of a slice of it below.
I made More >
The other night I was given the task of cooking dinner with chicken and whatever else I could find in the house. I managed to find some bacon, lettuce, eggs, Parmesan cheese and Caesar salad dressing so decided to make a chicken Caesar salad.
The Caesar salad dressing I used was Cardini’s (one of the only gluten free Caesar salad dressing I could find) which you can get in Coles.
All you need to do for the salad is firstly toss the chicken in peri peri seasoning and then cook. Hard boil the eggs and fry the bacon. On some lettuce leaves More >
A couple of years ago my flatmate at the time brought home some rocky road that her work mate had made. Lucky for me my flat mate didn’t like rocky road so she gave it to me. The rocky road had to be the best that I had ever tasted so I asked for the recipe. However, for some reason or another I never got around to making the rocky road. This year though, since I am working on Christmas Eve, I decided to bring something yummy into work for everyone. I decided I would therefore make the rocky road, More >
I was going to my parents place down the coast for Christmas drinks and Mum was making mini chive pancakes with sour cream and smoked salmon, a recipe taken from the Coles Christmas magazine. I remembered that I had a sample packet of Vitarium‘s pancake mix in the cupboard and therefore decided to make a few gluten free pancakes for myself.
I made up the pancakes, however added quite a lot more milk than the directions on the packet suggested as they were too thick. I also hadn’t realised that you were supposed to add chives to More >
At Christmas time I always look forward to my Mum’s baking including rum balls, Christmas cake and especially stollen. However since being gluten free I don’t get to indulge in these treats anymore. This year, though, I decided to make gluten free options of everything. I wasn’t going to make stollen as I was a little concerned about the large amount of flour and it therefore not working out, however because I love it so much I decided to give it a go.
My Mum has had her Southern Stollen recipe for years (it is taped together in a couple of More >
