  1. Sarah,

    I’m enjoying trying some of your recipes!
    The peanut butter chocolate blondies were lovely. I was really surprised that you can achieve a cake-like texture without flour.
    The chocolate prune bars taste great. I like them still really cold from the freezer as they are more chewy. My family is not keen on the flavour of peanuts, so next time, I’ll make it without the peanut butter and use some other nuts instead (maybe hazelnuts).
    I experimented with the chocolate cake recipe. I have family members who need to avoid gluten, and also dairy and eggs. So …. I made the chocolate cake by substituting gf flour, rice milk instead of cow’s milk, and “no egg powder” instead of eggs. As I was using “no egg powder”, I wasn’t able to separate the eggs and whisk the egg whites, etc. The result ….. it had a good flavour, but was very dense for a cake. But …. served warm with a custard or icecream (dairy free as needed) it was great. I’ll try it again, but use soy milk instead of rice milk as I usually have more success with substituting soy milk, and also try whisking the reconstituted “no egg powder” to add more air to the mix.
    I’m keen to try your gf pastry next.

    1. Thanks Janelle,

      I have to admit, I enjoy keeping the bars in the freezer and eating them straight from there as well! Let me know how you go with the pastry …!
