I am always happy to bake for coeliac's and I hope my small but tasty range will make your heart sing. I take extra and particular care when preparing to bake gluten free items. I always use separate equipment and I make sure that there is no cross contamination of the various products. Naturally, because I do have products containing gluten on site, there is always a risk attached. Please feel free to contact me and I would be delighted to give you more information on my practices and procedures. Additional gluten free items on my Savoury and Canapés pages.
GF Banana Loaf
This loaf is dairy free and gluten free. It will last in the fridge for up to 5 days, or it can be frozen. This is a moist and filling loaf which makes it ideal for the lunch box or afternoon tea. It is delicious spread with butter.
Main ingredients: Eggs, sugar, oil, vanilla, banana, Healtheries simple baking mix.

GF Raspberry & Lemon Friands
These are so delicious that you will need to hide them from the rest of the family. They keep for up to a week in an airtight container. But they won’t last that long! Finding this recipe was a Godsend when my daughter had to give up gluten.
Main ingredients: Ground almonds, icing sugar, gluten free flour, egg whites, butter, lemon rind and raspberries.
GF Almond Choc-Chip Cookies
These large and chocolatey biscuits are a winner. The best way to store them is to divide the batch and freeze portions of them, otherwise you will eat them too quickly! However, they will keep in the pantry for a week to 10 days in an airtight container.
Main ingredients: Butter, brown sugar, eggs, gluten free flour, coconut, ground almonds, and chocolate chips.
GF Beef Sausage Rolls
These are my regular beef sausage rolls that I have adapted to be gluten free. The pastry is temperamental and on occasion does crack as seen in the picture above. Test results from my coeliac testers are that they are brilliant for a gluten free sausage roll. The meat I use is still from the Highbury Butchers. Each roll is approximately 5cms long and 3 cms wide
Main ingredients: GF flaky pastry, beef sausage meat, premium beef mince, egg, mash potato, tasty cheese, gf bread crumbs, tomato sauce, chili sauce, chutney, salt and pepper.
$ 3.50 per roll
GF Lemon Bars
The lemon lovers will adore this slice. This recipe is very similar to my Luscious Lemon Slice which has a firm fan base. So I went looking for a similar type of recipe but a gluten free version. It has a gluten free sweet short pastry base which is cooked before the lemon filling is added on top and cooked until the lemon and egg mixture is wobbly. It does require 2 hours in the fridge to set before cutting.
Main ingredients: Gluten free flour, icing sugar, salt, lemon zest, butter, eggs, sugar, lemon juice and baking powder.
19 cm x 18 cm
Cuts into 18 bars (3 cm x 6 cm)
GF Chocolate Caramel Slice
The base is made with gluten free flour and is lovely and crisp. The caramel has a good layer and to balance out the sweetness of the caramel I have used Whittaker's dark chocolate with 50% cocoa on the top! My coeliac taste tester said "it's so yum and everyone (included non coeliacs) loved it."
Main ingredients: Gluten free flour, icing, salt, sugar, butter, condensed milk, syrup, dark chocolate 50% cocoa solids.

18 -20 biscuits

GF Orange and Almond Cake
This cake is special. It is made up of almond meal and polenta, and is therefore also gluten free. The cake has a great texture from the polenta, which gives it a slight crunch. The cake does have a dark outer edge, but the cake remains extremely moist, and has a wonderful orange zing and almond flavour. The orange slices on top of the cake are thinly sliced and then poached until soft and sweet. Toasted almonds are scattered on top to give a contransting crunch.

This cake is incredibly dense and has the consistency of a Torte. It is a rich cake, but not a sweet cake. The almond meal gives it wonderful flavour. The icing on top is a chocolate (50% dark chocolate and cream) ganache which is decorated with dark chocolate curls. This cake will feed a large group or could be used as a dessert.

GF Deluxe Birdseed Slice
I acknowledge that this is expensive, but the main cost is in the mixed deluxe nuts and seeds. This is incredibly nutritious and packed with goodness.
