    GF Christmas

    Hi everyone, I had a look around and couldn't find a thread for GF Christmas. Here in New Zealand because it's usually so hot on Christmas Day we usually have BBQ's, unless you are a tried and true traditionalist, then you have a roast dinner of some sort (and sit around regretting it afterwards! )

    Typical kiwi bbq consists of meat, all kinds of salads, tons of garlic bread icon_cry.gif icon_cry.gif and desserts are christmas fruit pudding, christmas cake , apple tarts, pavlova (GF free would you believe it), trifle (not GF free icon_cry.gif icon_cry.gif ), big bowls of fruit salad, jelly, icecream, chocolate eclairs. I'm going to miss the garlic bread and trifle as you can tell from the sad faces. I think I'll try making some macaroons.

    I thought maybe some GF zaarians might have some ideas for something a little different in the dessert line (something we can take to a friends on the day). ...does anyone have a GF christmas cake/pudding? Anyone who can come up with a GF trifle will be my friend for life.

    Thanks for the help.

    Hi Molly53, thanks for the links, they sound great - they sound a bit like a pavlova but yummier.

    I did find this recipe for trifle - it uses a purchased sponge, but you can always make your own. Here's just a few -

    You should be able to find some GF custard powder.

    I have made garlic bread with GF bread. It does tend to go a little soggier than normal bread though. One thing my son used to love was to take a small roll (made in muffin tins), add the marg and some garlic powder, and give it a quick zap in the microwave.

    We're traditionalist around here - mum cooks the turkey (I'll cook tofu turkey) and pudding, and I do the veggies and we meet out my house for lunch. For my GF son I'll often make an icecream pudding using soy icecream.

    Good luck.

    As usual bearhouse you're a great help. Funny how you can go looking for something on zaar and not find it, but somebody else can. You also gave me a great idea for garlic bread too - the GF bread I make is really only good for toast the next day, but if I slice it and freeze it, I can put some garlic butter on it and pop it under the grill to use at our BBQ's.
    Now that's an inspiring thought - Christmas doesn't look so bad after all.

    Let us know what menu you finally decide on.

    I found two other sponge recipes on the Orgran site, plus a fruit cake recipe.

    This year I'm going cheat and buy a pudding from a coeliac bakery (Uncle Rick's). He gave us a sample last time we visited and it was soooo yummy. icon_biggrin.gif

    HI!
    I make my regular cheesecake at Christmas, only I crush Health Valley Rice Bran Crackers to use in place of graham crackers. The rest of the ingredients are sour cream, eggs, cream cheese and gf vanilla, and sugar so I just make sure I buy Daisy brand and it comes out great!
    For turkey stuffing, I use gf cornbread and sausage or gf bread with cranberries and walnuts. It all works out great when I'm the cook. It's just eating at the relatives that is so scary!

    For future browsers, I made this GF Sponge Cake today to use in trifle and it turned out awesome #42458.

    Besides the trifle, we are having two fancy flavoured icecreams I've made up (chopped mint cream biscuits on a choc fudge biscuit base, and another with chopped black forest chocolate and cherry brandy liquer essence). We're also having of course the traditional New Zealand pavlova (which is GF), and traditional christmas pudding (non GF) (I'll miss that), fresh fruit salad and custard.
