Sorry I haven’t been around for ages, I don’t seem to find the time now I work all the time! I don’t find much time for baking but I have a few things to put up.
hey, how long have you had coeliac disease for?
Hi! I have had it for about 7 years now! I was diagnosed when I was 16 and I’m 23 now. My brother has has it since he was 4 and I was 2.
I'm so glad I found your blog! I was diagnosed with coeliac disease just 2 weeks ago and I'm still adjusting to the new diet. I thought I'd have to stop baking altogether and I cant wait to make you chocolate fudge cake!
Great! I hope you aren’t finding it too hard. I never used to bake before I was diagnosed, but now I really enjoy it. I quite like the fact that I have to make my own cakes, they taste so much better than shop bought.
I made some cookies recently using an american recipe so my measurements were a bit off, they were really nice but a bit too soft. When I get time I’m going to try again. If you come up with any good recipes, let me know! :)

What’s everyone’s favourite gluten free vegetarian meal/s?
I bought a vegetarian cookbook but they all seem a bit difficult to make and not gluten free. I need easy quick food. If you have any recipes or want to share a meal idea, or photo, send in an ask or submit and I will publish it! Thanks :)

If you don't mind me asking, what kind of flour did you use for the chocolate fondant thingys? Was it a general gf one from the shops or one you made up? They look absolutely amazing!
Thank you! The recipe book has two different flour mixes, and he gives you the measurements to make 1kg so that you can store it and use it as needed. The first one, which I used in that recipe, is 700g fine white rice flour, 200g potato flour and 100g tapioca flour. I just buy a flour mix I think it’s ‘Dove’s Farm’ Gluten Free Flour Mix. I’m not sure if other countries have this. But I read the ingredients and it has very similar flours in it so if you find any gluten free flour mixes that seem similar that might be easier or at least worth trying! I had trouble finding tapioca and potato flours so that was sort of my only option, luckily I found it.
I do want to post the recipe’s to some other things I make which will have the second flour mix. A chocolate fudge cake I love and made at Easter uses the second flour mix: 300g fine polenta (which I managed to find in a supermarket) OR chestnut flour, 500g brown rice flour, and 200g cornflour. I find both rice flour and cornflour easy to find.
I made my mum a carrot cake once with one of the mixes, forgetting I had made 1kg I just poured loads in without weighing it, that cake was not nice! It was like a brick!!
My sponge cakes, I always use a recipe from another book cause it always works and people always say it tastes nice, it uses just rice flour and ground almonds. A friend of mine has a nut allergy so if she will be there I take out the almonds and use more rice flour and that works fine. I’ll post these recipe’s soon!
