I already created one gluten free pastry cream recipe; however, due to the rice flour, it needs to sit overnight to remove the chalky flavor and texture. This recipe may be used immediately. Using an ice bath, you don’t even have to chill it that long. If you haven’t tried pastry cream yet, this will be […]
I made this flan recipe on Cinco de Mayo. It is a Mexican and Spanish tradition, though you may find some slight differences in recipes. It is naturally gluten free. This is my personal version which omits sweetened condensed milk. I find it too sweet. You can easily make flan using evaporated milk only and […]
Today is National Chocolate Souffle Day! Who can resist? Not me! Souffles have a bad wrap for being difficult to make, but they aren’t. I wouldn’t advise poking them with a toothpick, but they are fairly easy. Just be sure to beat those egg whites, as instructed. With chocolate, you really can’t do any wrong. […]
While not all ready-made or boxed pudding brands are gluten free, you can always use naturally gluten free ingredients to make them from scratch. Instead of making gluten free pudding, which contains flour, I prefer custard. There isn’t any floury taste or texture in custard because it does not contain flour. While this may not […]
We had a couple of guests for an early dinner on New Year’s Day. I ran out of time and hadn’t made any dessert. So, right after dinner I began experimenting with a quick chocolate mousse recipe and whipped up one that I will make again and again. I was so pleased and so were our […]
Sticky toffee pudding is a British dessert, usually steamed or baked in a water bath. This gluten free sticky toffee pudding is just baked, but topped with the traditional toffee sauce. You can top it with sweetened or unsweetened whipped cream, vanilla ice cream, or serve it just with the sauce.
I developed a bread pudding recipe for KitchenAid’s 6-Quart Slow Cooker with Easy Serve Lid back in 2012. I have played around with the recipe a couple of times since then. I have doubled the custard which I enjoyed much better. My husband is a bread lover and likes it dense with a single custard amount. So, […]
Arborio rice, the Italian rice you use to make risotto, is the perfect rice to use in rice pudding. It is extremely starchy, creating the perfect, thick texture. Vanilla may be the standard in flavoring rice pudding, but you can create a citrus, rum, or bourbon flavor. Add raisins or not. Your choice!
Ice cream makers are perfect for making semifreddos, a semi-frozen dessert. Coffee semifreddo is a dessert I enjoy serving dinner guests for a little pick-me-up/caffeine boost, thought it is lightly flavored. You can make the pudding in advance and keep refrigerated. Then about 20 minutes prior to serving, freeze it up in your ice cream […]
Imagine a light lemon mousse filling with a topping similar to lemon bars on your choice of crust. Choose from shortbread crust, regular pie crust, or a couple of versions of graham cracker crust. No matter which crust you choose, this lemon mousse pie is a delight. Of course, you can skip the crust altogether […]
