I have now been grain free for 11 weeks and so has one of my DD.
I was suffering but Miss J was suffering terribly
with belly aches day and night.It had me at a loss of what was causing it.
The Dr said she was not gluten intolerant as a blood test did
not show up positive. But the Pediatrician believes she may have the
same problem as I have, so grain free she is, and the results are amazing.
She no longer moans all day and can sleep at night without waking.
The things that we took for granted like Birthday cake, biscuits and such,
are now a little difficult for this sewing mumma.
I am not a great cook and we ate ok before but with a lot of grains in our diet.
Now we eat loads of fruit, veges, meat and eggs and enjoy our grain free diet.
And now with my cooking habits changed I look
for nice treats and recipes to satisfy our taste buds for the sweet treat.
Treats are that every now and again food, not an everyday occurrence.
BUT when it comes to birthdays...
We must indulge!
I was determined to to make Miss J aka Alice
a birthday cake she could eat.... and one I could too.
I found this recipe HERE and I thank God for other grain free eaters
who try and try till they work.....
It tasted delicious and was not hard to make even for me.
I omitted the maple syrup for honey and followed the rest of the recipe to a tee.
We needed only a smallish piece to satisfy our sweet tooth.
I can highly recommend it for anyone especially Gluten/grain free.
If you know anyone with Gluten intolerance issues or grain free dieters
do give this a try, they will love you for giving them a treat...
I must say I did not use the ganache recommended but used this recipe HERE
Enjoy some grain free baking!
