Gluten-Free Tiramisu Cups

Tiramisu is the all-time Italian favourite chilled dessert found on most Italian restaurant menus as one of the staple desserts, traditionally served from a large round glass bowl so the layers are visible from the side. It consists of layers of coffee-infused sponge...

Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones

Gluten-Free Ice Cream Cones

Lucky for me, it’s the middle of summer in Europe! The ideal weather to perfect these gluten-free ice cream cones. A lot of ice cream has been eaten over the last two weeks, plus plenty of mess from all the testing, decorating etc. The batter is a classic sugar cone...

Gluten-Free Cookie Dough Ice Cream

Gluten-Free Cookie Dough Ice Cream

It’s hard to believe that we need to be gluten-free savvy about what goes in store-bought ice cream, even though the main ingredients are dairy and usually gluten-free. The gluten culprit is usually the flavour additions like cookie dough, Oreos, brownies, etc. If you...

Gluten-Free Jelly Slice

Gluten-Free Pear Flan

Gluten-Free Pear Flan

Who doesn’t love a baked fruit-filled flan? This recipe is a great way to use left-over fruits, as is the case with my nearly overripe pears. The almond cream filling (aka frangipane) compliments the pears, as well as the crisp, buttery pastry. Besides tasting great,...

Gluten-Free Apple & Blueberry Crumble

Gluten-Free Apple & Blueberry Crumble

I love to make this easy, wholesome, wintery fruit compote topped with a crunchy and buttery biscuit crumb when I make a light dinner. Today, while I was making this crumble, it snowed in Vienna. While flakes were falling gently past my kitchen window, I enjoyed the...

Tres Leches Cake

This chilled dessert is the Mexican equivalent of Italy’s tiramisu or England’s trifle - translated as Three Milk Cake - this cake gets its name from the three types of milk - fresh cream, condensed milk and evaporated milk. These kinds of milk infuse the gluten-free...

Gluten-Free Key Lime Pie
