Gluten-Free Dutch Apple Pie

Gluten-Free Dutch Apple Pie

Being the national sweet pastry of the Netherlands, this Dutch apple pie was requested by my Dutch husband as his birthday cake recently, which conveniently falls during apple season. Dutch apple pie has a thick cake-like pastry as a base and as a lattice over densely...

Gluten-Free Stone Fruit Cake

Gluten-Free Stone Fruit Cake

Making the most of the summer season's stone fruits, I usually make several trays of this cake to eat on the spot or freeze for those dull winter days when I miss eating these fruits. In fact, I brought a couple of slices along for my recent train trip from Vienna to...

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 Pizza

Gluten-Free Pizza

Pizza night occurs every fortnight in our home. Typically, I roll out four large homemade gluten pizzas for the family. As for me, I usually resort to a tiny frozen store-bought frisbee pizza that tastes like cardboard, although I do jazz it up with my favourite...

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...

Gluten-Free Waffles

Gluten-Free Waffles

If there is one hypnotising smell at a food market, hands down it has to be the smell of waffles cooking – especially during the winter season. Most advent Christmas markets in Europe have a waffle stand and I am convinced it acts as a marketing tool to send the...
