In my quest to bake a gluten-free ANZAC biscuit, I have replaced oats (not considered gf in Australia) with rolled quinoa flakes and the flour with a blended gf flour and sorghum flour. I also added in some gf Freedom Foods "Rice Puff" cereal to make them a little lighter (this cereal is like Rice Bubbles). I've made a few batches now making slight changes each time......I'm happy with this version. My family said it's not bad for a gluten-free version....but not quite an Anzac biscuit. Made using Australian cup and spoon measures. I managed to buy some sorghum flour labelled as Jowar flour at a local Indian grocer.
From the Country Women's Association Cakes Cookbook, stated as contributed by B. Lee from Tasmania. This cake turns out just as well made with a purchased gluten-free blended self-raising flour to make this cake gluten-free suited. A simple and tasty cake to serve with a cuppa tea or coffee.
Super easy slice to prepare...no electric mixer required. Found in an old magazine at work. This slice works equally well using regular wheat flour or ga blended gluten-free flour mix. My photos are showing the gluten-free version- use gf flour and the slice is gluten-free suitable. This recipe uses a standard size tin of condensed milk and passionfruit pulp in syrup, so there is no wastage
Anzac biscuits are a traditional Aussie biscuit that were baked by the wives and mothers during World War I and packed into food parcels to be shipped to the soldiers. They included basic staple items as food was rationed during the war and times were hard. Today they are enjoyed as a good everyday basic biscuit and many Aussies bake these cookies to remember our soldiers and history on Anzac Day 25 April. This recipe uses Australian metric measurements- 1 tablespoon = 4 teaspoons
Tender braised lamb shanks in a red wine and vegetable gravy. Really not as rich as it sounds. Was given a pressure cooker as a gift from my family for my birthday- a Tefal Minut Pressure Cooker. This was my first recipe to try from the recipe book that came with it. My family raved over this dish.
Ask the butcher to 'french trim' the shanks for you, or at least remove the knuckle end. This will also cut down on the fattiness of the dish. Use gluten-free flour and stock for a gluten-free meal. Serve with mashed potato and a green vege sid. Delicious gravy for your mash
This is a great vegetarian slice. Made with sweet potato (aka kumera). A regular onion is called for in this recipe- any onion will do. It travels well for picnics and is firm enough to be eaten with your hands. Its great warm or cold. Check that the pesto and yogurt used are gluten free if you require a gluten free diet
A really easy damper recipe- I remember making these when I was still at school. To make a savoury damper, you can really add any herbs of choice, such as chopped parsley, chives, cracked black pepper. Damper is usually served with lashings of butter or for a sweet damper with butter, honey, golden syrup or strawberry jam
