5 winter gluten free recipes

1. The classic Aussie pie

Gluten Free Shortcrust Pastry

The classic Aussie pie, it’s as much at home at a Footy game as it is in a fine dining restaurant. At home, you can dress your pie up or down depending on how much time you have and what the occasion is. Here’s our shortcrust pastry recipe. Now all you need to do is get creative and stuff with your favourite filling.

2.  Chocolate Mud Cake
Chocolate Mud Cake

Chocolate mud cake – the chocolate lover’s indulgence. A rich chocolately, fudgey cake that everyone loves. This treat is best served topped with luxurious chocolate ganache and a big dollop of cream. Create one large mud cake or mini cakes in a muffin tray that you can munch on like pretzels. Either way you’re onto a winner.

3. Pizza
Pizza Dough Recipe

Our challenge to you is this: bring us one person that doesn’t like pizza! Savoury or sweet, seafood or steak, Funghi or Hawaiian, there’s a topping to suit everyone’s taste. Although gluten free pizza bases have got a bad rap over recent years for their texture, we can assure you this recipe provides a wonderful soft base.

4. Torillas

Soft Tortila WrapsTortillas are a household item in many Aussie homes. Just because you can’t have gluten in your diet doesn’t mean you have to miss out. Make your gluten free tortillas then stuff them full of delicious, fresh ingredients. Add some hot and spicy salsa sauce, close you eyes and picture yourself in Cancun to warm your winter away.

5. Bownie Ice Cream Sandwiches

choc brownieBrownies: on their own or used to make ice cream sandwiches, it doesn’t matter. Anything that involves brownies is a good thing. You can whip these up in no time and they really do taste as good as those that are made from wheat flour. Now all you need is your favourite box-set of DVDs and you’re set for that next cold and wet day.
