Spiced Sweet-Potato Cake Recipe; Gluten and Dairy Free

sweet potato cakeThis cake is soft and reminiscent of the filling in pumpkin pie.  Not surprising really, when it has mashed sweet potato as its main ingredient.

To do ahead of time

Cook sweet potatoes in the microwave (or oven if you have it running for something else) until they are soft.  Mine took about eight minutes – four small sweet potatoes. Leave to cool then remove the peel and mash.  I found it easiest to cut an end off and scoop the sweet potato out with a circular action with a fork.  Do this ahead of time so you don’t be tempted to work with them while they are very hot and burn yourself.   Keep the peel and spritz with oil, put on a baking sheet, and cook for 20-30 minutes in the oven for a crisp scoop for spicy salsa.

I know you might think I’m clever, but really, I’m not. Full credit goes to Lauryn Cohen, aka Bella Baker, who came up with this cute concept. Lauren is the queen of sweet and is known for her uniquely creative treats and crafts. She recently launched a holiday baking guide (entitled Sweet Gifts Holiday Baking and Crafting Guide– available nationwide) filled with innovative and delicious recipes for the holidays.

Lauryn was nice enough to share one of her creations with The Family Chef. In this recipe, she calls for a red velvet cupcake (you will find a gluten-free, no-dye recipe in my upcoming cookbook). You can always use a basic vanilla (gluten-free).

Here is her technique for making super cute holiday cupcakes for your friends or family. Read More »

Cake Darla Gluten Free Works

honeyville almond flourSince I have this brand new bag of blanched almond flour that Honeyville sent me burning a hole in my pantry, I decided to try one of the savory recipes from Elana Amsterdam’s book. My kids love Cheddar Bunnies and Goldfish snack crackers, so I made these cheddar cheese crackers, hoping they’d be something we could all enjoy. I’d never attempted homemade crackers before, and I was pleasantly surprised by how easy they were.

For the cheddar cheese crackers, you’ll need:

2 ½ cups blanched almond flour
¼ tsp sea salt
½ baking soda
1 cup freshly grated cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons coconut oil (original recipe calles for grapeseed oil) Read More »

Brownies with a Hint of Matcha!

Inge Gillian Harris

The creative ways of using chocolate are endless.

There are also a hundred different ways of making brownies, gluten free or otherwise  – and we have a few options up our sleeves! Read More »
