Elvis Cookies #glutenfree #dairyfree

Glutenfree and Dairyfree Elvis Cookies by Bewildered Bug

Apparently there is the biggest Elvis exhibition to ever hit London on at the O2 coming up in December.  At least they claim it is – but I saw the ad in the tube when I was dragging my Mom around London this week … under apparent rioting but that’s another story.  Anyway, I was trying to figure out what to do with this awesome organic raw banana powder that was sent to me by Indigo Herbs – and then… Continue Reading “Elvis Cookies #glutenfree #dairyfree”

Gluten free and Dairy Free Lemon Danish Recipe

Gluten Free and Dairy Free Lemon Danish Loaf recipe by Bewildered Bug

I think you always go back to your favourite flavours for comfort food.  A lot has been going on on this side of the screen that I’m not ready to talk about, so when the GBBO decided to do an enriched dough on their finale, I decided I wanted to attempt a lemon danish recipe.  Well, that was after I googled what an enriched dough was, of course, because I’m usually clueless on things like this.  Before this entire challenge,… Continue Reading “Gluten free and Dairy Free Lemon Danish Recipe”

Getting my craft on with Hillary’s #Hillaryscrafternoon

Every once in a while I get crafty.  By that, I mean I pretend I’m good at crafting – and my latest attempt at it was sponsored by Hillary’s.  I was invited to attend a lovely little blogger get together near King’s Cross Station at a place called Drink, Shop & Do – a really cool little shop, cafe and craft space right in the middle of Central London.  Definitely somewhere I’d love to go again, perhaps with some girlfriends… Continue Reading “Getting my craft on with Hillary’s #Hillaryscrafternoon”

Manchester’s Hidden Gems #foodie

It’s sort of nice to be recognised.  Perhaps that’s one reason I blog – because people seem to recognise that what I have to say means something.  It’s especially ego-food when they decide to quote something you said  – like this infographic on Manchester’s Hidden Gems.  I have to tell you, my short stint in Manchester made me fall in love with the city – especially the people and the places that I learned to love…..like Dough Pizza Kitchen which… Continue Reading “Manchester’s Hidden Gems #foodie”

Gluten Free and Dairy Free Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Tart

It’s amazing how something as seemingly simple as a salted caramel and dark chocolate tart can take me so long to make, yet something like two flavours of freaking gluten and dairy free profiteroles took me only four hours on a Friday night!  I guess it means that I’ve made my schedule way too busy again and I need to slow down.  It’s Sunday night at 10:30 pm and I’ve only just completed this tart and to be honest, it… Continue Reading “Gluten Free and Dairy Free Salted Caramel and Dark Chocolate Tart”

Chocolate Chili Mille Feuille #GlutenFree #DairyFree

Gluten Free Dairy Free Chocolate Chilli Mille Feuille

I’ve always been fascinated by mille feuille.  I always marvelled at how delicate and light they look in bakery displays – but I don’t believe I’ve ever had one before.  Luckily, I was able to make a gluten free, dairy free version of them for this week’s GBBO challenge! Yummy pastry.  It was patisserie week on the Great British Bake Off this week – and man what a challenge.  From the previous weeks, I’ve already determined that gluten free, dairy… Continue Reading “Chocolate Chili Mille Feuille #GlutenFree #DairyFree”

Gluten Free and Dairy Free Moroccan Lamb and Apricot Pie

Moroccan Lamb and Apricot Pie

Did I ever tell you I love Moroccan food?  Better yet – give me a Moroccan lamb dish and I’m over the moon.  That, together with the fact that I’ve been going nuts baking sweet stuff for the past few weeks, and you get the idea for this week’s #GBBO bake off – my Moroccan lamb and apricot pie.  Well, it’s Moroccan on the inside, but quite British on the outside, because I made it in the fashion of a… Continue Reading “Gluten Free and Dairy Free Moroccan Lamb and Apricot Pie”

Apricot and Ginger Frangipane Tart #Glutenfree #Dairyfree

Gluten free and dairy free apricot and ginger frangipane tart by Bewildered Bug

The first time I heard about a frangipane tart, I was completely confused because I thought it was a tart made with frangipani (plumeria) flowers!  Instead, imagine my surprise when I found out that it was a sweet, almond based filling for apie.  Well, technically, I didn’t hear about it until I found a chocolate and almond frangipane cookie which involved mixing almond with icing sugar and egg white, sticking it in the oven and then dipping the cooled result… Continue Reading “Apricot and Ginger Frangipane Tart #Glutenfree #Dairyfree”

Profiteroles! #glutenfree #dairyfree

Gluten and Dairy Free Profiteroles by Bewildered Bug

At a recent gluten free baking class that I chose to take, the instructor shook her head vehemently and went “just trust me, you can’t make choux pastry gluten free”.  If you know me, I took that on as a challenge – and when I saw that the Great British Bake Off was doing a “free from” week, I decided that this would be my 0pportunity to prove this lady wrong.  Just because, you know, I can.  So I eagerly… Continue Reading “Profiteroles! #glutenfree #dairyfree”
