A free Christmas? Surely she must be kidding I can hear you say….. however it may sound a bit more plausible if I tell you the ‘free’ I’m talking about is the ‘dietary requirements’ kind.
This will be my first Christmas sugar free, add to that the fact that I just feel better without gluten and dairy in my life and well….. it begs the question ‘how the hell am I going to have a Christmas cake this year??!!’
I’ve looked in a few books and while there are options they are a bit limited to include all three. Many have honey and sugar or a pound load of butter. I’m gearing myself up for a week of experimentation – replacing ingredients, juggling weights and generally praying, while crossing my fingers, that I will be producing something edible! 🙂
Last year I did make a pavlova (GF), one of my favourites, and I’m thinking of trying that with dextrose this year however I don’t like using that stuff too much. Sooooooo…..I’m posting this to see if you all have any wonderful ideas and recipes to share. I will post any successes I have and would love to hear of your plans for ‘healthy’ Chrissy cakes this year.
