Gluten-Free baking can be a real challenge. When looking a little closer at your favorite baked goods, you’ll see that gluten actually contributes to the properties of cupcakes, cakes and so on. On the other hand, it is becoming a lot simpler with new products in your supermarket. A wide range of gluten-free ingredients such as flours is making it easier for you to bake without this protein. This is a real help for those Celiacs with a sweet tooth. But this doesn’t mean it is not more difficult. It is still a challenge to make those baked goods just as good as normal.

So let’s take a look at a great recipe you can start experimenting with straight away:



125g of melted butter
125g of caster sugar
3 tablespoons of milk
2 fresh eggs
125g of gluten-free flour, should be self-raising
Two drops of vanilla extract


2 egg whites
100g of butter
150g of caster sugar
Two drops of vanilla extract

This is an incredibly easy recipe to make and will make your taste buds tingle. It really is delicious, and it’s hard to notice the difference. It is important however to use high quality self-raising flour, or you’ll notice that they are gluten-free. Feel free to experiment with this recipe and try to make it even tastier depending on your preference.

The key with coping with a constricted diet is to try new things all the time, and ensure that you don’t get too bored cooking with the same recipes all the time. Get creative, and try to bake yourself. The supermarket products don’t tend to be that nice, at least not the ones that I have tried myself
