Fourth of July gluten-free desserts

July 2nd, 2010 by Jennifer Harris


The Fourth of July is almost here and it is time for festive desserts.  When this Examiner saw that the recipe for Summer Berry Trifle on FamilyFun.com was easily converted to gluten free, it just had to be shared.  Schar makes a great gluten-free ladyfinger that can be purchased locally at Return to Eden.

If you would rather eat cake, then Jen Cafferty has a great recipe for a gluten-free flag cake.  New Harvest Naturals makes mini pound cakes that can easily be decorated with whipped cream and fresh berries to create individual flag cakes.  You can purchase New Harvest Naturals products locally at Return to Eden.

Regardless of what you choose to make, get creative and really wow your family and friends.  It doesn’t take much effort to produce a scrumptious gluten-free dessert that is a real crowd pleaser. (more…)


Fourth of July is just around the corner and red, white and blue desserts will be in all the stores.  However, if you are on a gluten free diet, you will most likely need to make your own gluten free Fourth of July dessert.

One of the easiest desserts to make is an American Flag Cake.  Using a gluten free cake white or yellow cake mix (see brands below), prepare a 9″x13″ cake in a pan.  Allow the cake to cool.

Frost the cake with white gluten free frosting.   (more…)

 

Back in February I wrote an article on Wendy’s updated gluten-free menu.  I wrote the article mainly because they removed a lot of the salads that had previously been listed as gluten-free.  The menu has been updated again.  Fast food restaurants tend to change offerings based on the season, so I applaud Wendy’s for keeping us informed.

The current gluten-free menu for Wendy’s can be viewed here.  The Baja Salad has been added to the gluten-free list.  This salad contains much of the same ingredients that the Southwest Taco Salad did or does.  While the gluten-free menu still lists the Southwest Taco Salad, the regular online menu does not.
