Easy Raspberry and Almond Bakewell Cake

Easy Raspberry and Almond Bakewell Cake
Gluten Free and Vegan

Well we have a Platinum Jubilee coming up from the 2nd of July of our Beloved Queen

So I thought I best get an Iconic Bake in before we all start to bake up a storm for out street parties and afternoon teas in celebration

To mark the event … I decided on nothing to whacky but something traditional with a twist

So I’ve chosen a Bakewell Tart and taken out the equation of pastry πŸ™Š

I know for some that will just make your heart sing πŸ˜‚

But we do want to spend time celebrating and not fussing over elaborate decorated cakes ( But you can if you want ) πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

So we have all the flavour of almonds and lovely juice raspberries just waiting to be savoured !!! And even though this looks a rustic bake I want to tell you I would be more than happy to be served this at an afternoon tea

And Im sure Liz would be happy with this fayre too ……

We all know its her Majesty that decrees that its jam before cream on a scone , so if she delights in scones she will delight in a pastry-less Bakewell Cake 😍

So without further ado…. lets bake because you wont believe how simple this is

Just The ticket !!!

Gluten Free and Vegan ‘Caram!lk’ Cookies

‘Caramilk’ NYC Style Cookies
Gluten Free and Vegan

Well now for something a little different this week !!

Caramilk ……..but not Caramilk πŸ™Š ……. Caram!lk Cookies because these are Gluten Free and Vegan

Who would have thought that this chocolate development would have happened at all……. but the folk at Plamil Foods / So Free Here in the UK have nailed it to the mast

This I must add quickly is not an add this was just the desire to get my hands on the product …….so much so I bought 6 bars πŸ™ŠπŸ™ŠπŸ™Š

So I wanted to make something that was quick easy and fuss free

So Cookies it is ….and delicious they are

As I say with all my cookies that contain Chickpea Flour …..

Please do not taste these until they are cooked …..

It honestly is the food of the devil and you deserve to eat these baked πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

They certainly didn’t hang around long in our Biscuit Tin ( Cough Cookie Jar if you must 🀣)

I have this week once again included a little You Tube Video , If I have these produced I will up load them for you

It may not be every week it does depend on time restraints and whether I can be bothered πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚, but if there is one to be had I will endeavour to get them to you

It still seems a little surreal that I have actually manage to negiotiate some changes to The blog …..

I do hope you like the changes , and I hope its now easier to read and more enjoyable to see the videos that the still pics

Now lets bake some Cookies !!!
