Gluten Free Baking

I just made these “puddings” for dessert tomorrow night as we’re having guests over. They came out of the oven looking just like they do in the photo and smell delicious! I used 3 TBSP. butter as the conversion from grams. -All other measurements as stated. I also used lite coconut milk. The folding-in of the egg whites took a little time – be patient.

Thanksgiving Inspiration: Recipe #2

November 14, 2013 Bonus Recipes/VegetarianDessertsMake Ahead MadnessShopping Lists and Home Page Posts  No comments

I know most families usually have pumpkin, apple, or pecan pies for dessert after Thanksgiving dinner.  My family had the privilege of partaking in my mom’s cranberry pudding, complete with sweet butter sauce. (Don’t skip the butter sauce!) I can easily say, we didn’t miss the pies. Another plus to this dessert – other than the fact that it’s delicious, if you double the recipe, you can bake the cake part of it in a 9″ x 13″ cake pan. This makes enough to feed 8 – 10 people comfortably (probably with leftovers).  The cranberry pudding can also be made a day or two ahead of time; you should keep both the sauce and cake in the fridge until the day of the meal (-both separate from one another and covered).  I hope you enjoy!

Banana, Pecan, and Coconut Cream Crepe Filling (or Pudding)

Yes, you read that right. The “cream” is pudding like in consistency so, of course, feel free to eat it sans crepe. Peter and I each ate 3 cream filled crepes and we were very well satiated to say the least. There was enough cream leftover for another serving.

From the Grocery Girl’s Test Kitchen: Sweet and Buttery Almond and Lemon Cake (with a Hint of Thyme)

October 25, 2011 DessertsShopping Lists and Home Page Posts  No comments

A previous post that I wrote was about the art of perfecting a recipe in the test kitchen.  As sweets were dwindling around our house, I decided to step into my test kitchen (A.K.A. The kitchen in our condo.) and throw a cake together.

Since I don’t bake a lot, I did a little research on recipes before I started measuring.  I was pretty sure I wanted to make an almond cake, but knew we didn’t have any almond paste on hand.  (Almond paste can be found in the baking aisle at your supermarket if the recipe you’re making calls for it.)  We did have almond extract though and I found this recipe:  http://www.italian-dessert-recipes.com/almond_cake_recipe.html online.  I was intrigued by the idea of a delicious “one bowl” almond cake so I decided to give it a whirl...
