Gluten free chocolate peanut butter cheesecake

Each birthday, I make my Dad a variation on a cheesecake. One year it was Nigella, one year it was Jamie, one year it was Nigella but with that sour cream top. The past few years, however, things have been getting a little inventive. Last year it was my own recipe for a cheesecake, topped  … Read more

Brown butter, sea salt and quinoa flour brownie cookies

I mean, is there anything brown butter can’t improve? Because brownie cookies are good, but brown butter brownie cookies are better. I’ve been toying around with these brownie cookies for a while (and promising the recipe on Instagram even longer, soz) and they’re finally here. The delay is due in part to illness, but mostly due  … Read more

Gluten free, FODMAP friendly chocolate cake

I was thinking of naming this ‘the chocolate cake you’d bring to a family lunch with Aunty Sheryl and your dairy intolerant cousin in one room,’ but that’s a little lengthy, and perhaps a bit offensive to Aunty Sheryl. To me, this cake tastes like my memory of Coles cake (fellow ‘strayans, you know) which  … Read more

Gluten free, low FODMAP chocolate brioche

Oh boy. This chocolate brioche has been a long time in the making. Well, a gluten free chocolate, yeasted bread, has been, at least. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been trying my hand at a chocolate babka, and for as long as I can remember, it’s been an absolute failure. Gluten free  … Read more

Marbled chocolate, sea salt, hazelnut and Nutella bark

Before we begin, let’s establish a fairly obvious fact: this is not a health food. Nutella is not a health food, nor are two different varieties of chocolate, nor is combining the two and sprinkling a few nuts on top.  Now that we’ve cleared the air, let’s establish, the next, even more obvious fact: marbled  … Read more

Grain free Christmas apple minced tart with spiced meringue

I have been gluten free for about five or six Christmases now, and each year I have accepted the status quo: that I will inevitably watch with envy as my family scarf down minced pies with reckless abandon. This year, however, I’ve made the call not to sit back and take missing out on dessert lightly,  … Read more

Grain free sesame chocolate chip brownies

Yes. I know. A new recipe for brownies. Say what you will, but I feel like brownie recipes can never truly get old. They are always waiting to be reinvented, because everyone loves a good brownie, and every recipe developer loves to reinvent the wheel. So here I am. I kind of stumbled upon this  … Read more

Chocolate zucchini sheet cake with avocado

What is a zucchini doing in a chocolate cake, you might be asking? I’m glad you are, because I am about to tell you. The humble zucchini is somewhat of a FODMAP friendly superfood – it is filling, mostly liquid, rather bland (no offence, zucchini, I’m bland too) and can take on literally any flavour  … Read more
