Twenty eighteen has been the first full year for this little food blog. Cathy's Gluten Free was born late in 2017 as a place for me to share my wholesome gluten free recipes with you. I've been surprised by how much I'm enjoying developing and testing recipes! These were your top ten favourites throughout 2018.
A nutritious gluten free diet focuses on minimally processed vegetables, fruits, and clean proteins. Since I don't eat bread, cake, cookies, or pie every day, I offer a variety of recipe options, many of which are naturally gluten free. I favour recipes that are low in sugar, often sweetened with a little honey or maple syrup. In fact, organic raw cane sugar is as refined as it gets around here.
However, I'm beginning to sense that when you come to a gluten free website, you may be looking for good baking recipes. Considering your number one choice, it looks like being dairy free as well as gluten free might also be important to you. Am I right?
What kinds of recipes would you like to see? Help me shape 2019 content by telling me in the comments below what kinds of recipes you look for. Maybe your suggestion will become a winner next year!
Here, in reverse order, are the ten most viewed Cathy's Gluten Free recipes of 2018.
This gluten free pie crust recipe makes a lovely tender, flaky pie crust. I use it often to make pies and tarts for my family who don’t even need to eat gluten free. They don’t know it’s gluten free unless I tell them!
Gluten Free Almond Teff Pancakes are fluffy, yet pleasantly hearty and substantial at the same time. They are neutral in flavour, ready for your favourite choice of toppings.
This Simple Crusty Artisanal Gluten Free Bread is easy to mix up. Let the batter rest overnight and bake it in cast iron at a high temperature.The resulting texture is hardy and the taste slightly reminiscent of sourdough, depending on how long you have let the dough rest.
This Flourless Chocolate Cake is rich, moist, and decadent! It’s a five-ingredient flourless chocolate cake made healthier!
Sweet Potato Salad with Bacon is a naturally sweet and creamy treat that I enjoy during the summer and all year round. It seems indulgent, but really – it’s not!
Lemon Coconut Chia Balls are nutritious morsels that taste both refreshing and sweet at the same time. With only five ingredients and no baking, they’re a cinch to make!
Gluten Free Butter Tarts have a tender, flaky golden crust containing delicious sweet maple filling. You can add nuts, raisins, coconut, or leave them plain according to your personal preference. These can also be made dairy free without sacrificing any deliciousness!
Carrot Cake sweetened with pineapple, raisins, and a little honey is a satisfying family favourite of ours. Depending on the frosting, it can even be dairy-free!
Cashew Yogurt is creamy, delicious, and the easiest thing ever to make! I like it even better than dairy yogurt!
I hope that these recipes will help you to enjoy the gluten free diet a little bit more. Have a happy, healthy 2019!
