I made gluten free coconut muffins, lemon cakes, a blackberry and apple sponge, and 2 barm loafs, 1 gluten free one normal.
|iced and decorated|
8 oz Provamel Coconut and rice drink in place of milk
2 spoons egg replacer mixed in the milk replacer
6 oz gluten free flour
2 oz coconut flour
4oz coconut sugar
Mix together dry ingredients
mix together wet ingredients
Mix together wet and dry and then place into cake cases, and cook for 15 minutes at 180 oC
I love the colour the oil gave to the cakes. The combination of the coconut ingredients made for a very nice cake, slightly on the heavy side and I have been experimenting with gluten free as I am increasingly finding white flour causing me problems.
The Provamel drink is more like a juice, it does not have a thick milk consistency and therefore I found it very pleasant and refreshing to drink. It work well in the muffins, in which I would normally use milk.
I made two of these, both with the same basic ingredients, one with Gluten Free flour, one with normal flour.
Make a pint of tea using two tea bags and a pint of hot water. Add one star anise and 8 oz sultanas to the mix whilst hot and leave for twelve hours.
gluten free or normal)
with 5 oz coconut sugar
and then stir in half the tea and sultanas into each set of dry mix
Place into a greased loaf tin and cook for approx 45 minutes at 160 oC
You could not tell the difference between these two and the gluten free one is as light and tasty as the other one.

Mix 4oz dairy free margarine

a teaspoon lemon extract
add 8 oz light brown self raising flour and stir
cook in cake cases for 12 mins at 180 oC
I made double the mixture and used half to make a blackberry and apple sponge.
I placed a layer of sponge at the bottom of a casserole dish, peeled and sliced three eating apples which I layered on top and then sprinkled blackberries across the top, and finished off with another layer of sponge.
The lemon complimented the apple and blackberry to make for a very nice dessert.
