Gluten Free Apple Slice

image image

This is a hard sweet to define, adapted from a cake recipe but actually lovely warm with cream or ice cream too.

As it is quite crumbly by nature I also use it to make apple pie ice cream if there is any left over.


120g butter, melted

400g caster sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

150g ground almonds

100g brown rice flour

2 teaspoons gluten free baking powder

3 teaspoons ground cinnamon

4 apples, peeled, cored and diced


Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Centigrade.

Grease and line a 30cm by 15cm cake tin.

Whisk the butter, sugar and eggs in a large bowl.

Add the ground almonds, brown rice flour, baking powder, cinnamon and apples, mix well.

Spoon into the prepared tin, spreading it right up to the edges.

Bake for 40-45 minutes.

Allow to cool in the tin.

Gluten Free Lemon Cookies


Lemon season has begun here in Western Australia.

Our tree is laden and lemons are now featuring heavily on the menu!

These biscuits are quite “short” and the buckwheat/brown rice flour gives them a more earthy flavour which I like.

Makes 22-24.


220g butter

110g caster sugar

2 lemons, zest only

200g ground almonds

60g buckwheat flour

60g brown rice flour


Preheat the oven to170degrees Centigrade.

Line two baking sheets.

Process the butter, sugar and lemon zest until creamed.

Add the ground almonds and flours and process until well combined.

Roll the dough out into walnut sized pieces, place on the baking sheets and press down slightly.

Bake for 20mins.

Once golden brown, remove form the oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.

Store in an airtight container.
