Recipe of the Week

These are two of my favorite cookbooks

Sue Dengates "The Failsafe Cookbook"

Both of these books include handy recipes for those who are affected by food allergy and intolerance. For the Train Cake and any other birthday cake for kids I use the Basic Plain Cake recipe which you can find on page 133 of the Sue Dengate Book. For the Cookies I use the Vanilla Cookie Recipe from the RPAH book on page 162, I would highly recommend these two books for any family. If your own children don't have any allergies or food intolerance I can guarantee that you will come across someone who does. It is a great resource with loads of helpful info.

Basic Plain Cake

250g self-raising flour or gluten free flour (I use Orgran or the new Aldi Has No.. brand)
1/4 tsp salt
125g failsafe butter or nuttelex
125g caster sugar
2 eggs, well beaten or egg replacer
1/2 cup of milk or rice or soy milk
1/4 tsp vanilla

Grease the cake tin. Preheat oven to 180 degrees. Sift flour and salt. Add beaten eggs or egg replacer follow instructions on packet. Add flour and salt alternately with milk and vanilla. Put in tin and bake for 40-45 mins. Ice with white icing.

For cup cakes. Bake for 12-15 mins

Vanilla Cookies

125g nuttelex
80g caster sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup soy-free gluten free plain flour
1/2 cup
soy-free gluten free self-raising flour

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees. Line the baking tray with paper.

Beat the nuttelex, sugar and vanilla with an electric mixer for 1-2 mins. Sift the flour into the mix and form a smooth dough.

Shape the mix into balls and press down with a fork. Bake for 12-15 mins. Cool on a wire rack.
