Last month saw free-from bakes hit tv screens with contestants on Great British Bake Off competing in the first ‘Free-From Week’! We loved watching contestants battle it out making dairy-free ice cream sandwiches, vegan sausage rolls and of course gluten-free showstoppers. It was great to see a more inclusive menu this month and in celebration, we’ve put together a list of some of our favourite gluten-free bakes!
A popular treat across the UK - and on Bake Off - this classic English dessert is perfect for afternoon tea parties or as a snack with a cup of tea. Our bakewell tarts are not only gluten-free but are vegetarian, soya free, dairy-free and a Gold Award Winner at the Foodmatter Free From Awards 2018. Filled with a layer of fruity raspberry jam and almond mixture encased in a short sweet pastry, they are great for any occasion!
Grab them ready to eat from our website, or make your own with our ready to roll shortcrust pastry!
During Free-From Week, the contestants were tasked with creating 12 identical vegan sausage rolls and so it seemed fitting to include a recipe using our ready to roll shortcrust pastry! This fantastic recipe from Plant-Based Folk has a fresh vegetable and mixed herb filling and using our ready to roll pastry makes them a doddle to bake! They make for a perfect lunchbox treat for adults and kids alike.
Another firm English favourite, our scrumptious cranberry and orange scones are back by popular demand this festive season. They are vegan, dairy free, soya free and egg free. Containing a healthy dose of cranberries and a delicate orange flavour we feel these would be a firm favourite in the bake-off tent!
Only available for Christmas (so grab one while you can!) our white chocolate and coconut cake is luxurious and extremely sweet. It’s made from a soft white chocolate sponge with white chocolate fondant and raspberry jam in the middle covered in a rich sweet fondant, topped with desiccated coconut. We also offer cupcake versions great for parties. Vegetarian, dairy free and soya free,we feel this delicious cake would be a worthy showstopper and deserving of a Hollywood handshake!
We hope this has introduced you to the wide range of free-from bakes available and you can view all our sweet and savoury treats on our online shop. Don’t forget both our shortcrust pastry and sweet almond pastry can also be purchased via the website or in selected Waitrose stores - happy baking!
