America, the country of incredibly delicious, but usually oh so unhealthy, food. One of my absolute favorites or pop-tarts. In the States Glutino has gluten free versions but unfortunately they are not available in the Netherlands and as I was so in the mood for them I decided to make my own.
There are a few things which I have not been able to find gluten free which taste similar to their original gluten containing forms. These products include croissants, soesjes (dutch pastry which is most similar to cream puffs) and quiche. My last attempt at baking a quiche was edible but the dough did not resemble quiche in any way!
When I visited the Gebaksjuwelier for a high tea, I found the gluten free magazine containing tips and tricks for baking a perfect gluten free quiche. My interested was immediately spiked, could these few tips really help? It turned out they can!
On the one hand it feels like I’ve only just left Groningen, on the other hand it feels like ages ago that I had a delicious treat in the glutenfree bakery. If there are two things I miss from Groningen it’s the delicious glutenfree pizza from Costa Viola and all the glutenfree baked goods from Toet.
Luckily there is a glutenfree paradise closer to home than Groningen! It is a store named the ‘Gebaksjuwelier’ which translates into the pastery-juweler. On a Friday afternoon my mother surprised me with a trip to this bakery. I was already following them for a while via facebook and often had the urge to eat my computer screen so visiting this shop was definitely high on my to-do list!
Sometimes you have a cake you really want to make but just never get round to it. In my case this is a rhubarb pie. As one of my first projects I wanted to make rhubarb cupcakes, only to find out that the season for rhubarb had long passed.
Last week the boyfriend and I went to my parents for a BBQ as all of a sudden it was such gorgeous weather. As a surprise I wanted to bake something, they do so much for us and I thought it was a nice excuse to try out a new recipe 🙂
