My Story

Hello my name is Sass. I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease over 15 years ago. Back then, options were limited and I really struggled with my change to eating gluten free and finding alternatives for baked goods. 


I have always loved being in the kitchen so it was only natural that over the years I have sought out ingredients and ways to create delicious gluten free food. I am often told that you cannot tell my gluten free baking apart from "the normal..." so I dare you to give it go. 

Mid 2020, I was asked by my favourite gluten free flour company if I would become one of their at home test bakers. This involves confirming recipes where their flours are used. Of course I said yes! So you will see that I often reference FG Roberts in my baking. I use FG Roberts flours exclusively now because the results are consistent. 


Strawberry Shortcake Steamed Puddings

A cross between shortcake and a sponge, these delectable little jam puddings are the bomb! I used my homemade strawberry jam for these but you could use any flavoured jam you like.

FG Roberts gluten free self raising flour was used for this recipe. A different brand may yield different results, and you may need a little more or less milk depending on the thirstiness of the brand flour used.

If you use salted butter, omit the salt. If you use unsalted butter, please use a quality salt flake and not a cooking salt, as the saltiness and flavour of cooking is quite different.
