Did you ever wonder how pastry chefs make that mirror glaze finish on cakes? It is much easier than you’d imagine and you can find all of the ingredients right in your local grocery store.

Besides learning how to make this delicious and moist gluten free chocolate sponge cake, you also learn how to convert vanilla cakes to chocolate. It’s all very easy to do.

Chomeur, French for “unemployed” and pounding for “pudding” was originally known as the poor man’s pudding during the depression. It was created in Quebec Canada by female factory workers. This particular gluten free chomeur pudding is far from a poor man’s dessert. Pound cake-like near the surface, with a pudding texture closer to the bottom, and a maple caramel sauce that is out of this world. I’ve also added an inexpensive alternative recipe in the Tips section.
Your gluten free holidays can be perfect without getting up at dawn to make the perfect breakfast. Make this amazing gluten free cinnamon roll wreath in advance and freeze.

There’s nothing that expresses Thanksgiving or fall like pumpkin. This layered gluten free pumpkin cake is as moist as pumpkin bread (quick bread) but lighter and truly delicious. Choose from three frosting recipes with a cinnamon variation.
You don’t need dairy or corn syrup to make delicious, chewy

but I swear you won’t care. Even coconut haters enjoy this caramel.
