What's WIDE CIRCLE COOKING about?
I blog information, news and recipes about gluten-free, wheat-free, dairy-free, egg-free, alcohol-free and vegan cooking. Right now I've been working on an exciting project where I avoid refined sugar and create recipes using a range of healthier alternatives.

Happy cooking!

ps. ask all guests if they have an allergy (because the recipes use some unusual combinations and they may not expect to find citrus and soya in the chocolate cake, for example).
pps.if you are cooking for someone with an allergy, please read my allergy page first.

Easy gluten-free cakes for tea



Yum... these Blueberry and Cranberry Muffins are the latest offering from Warburton's new Gluten Free & Wheat Free range (which does contain egg and dairy, so watch out for that). Both these muffins and the Lemon & Poppyseed variant are scrummy and would fool even the most ardent wheat-eater. I enjoyed them over a cup of tea with a wheat-free friend who was pleasantly surprised.
Look out for them in Tesco and Waitrose (among others) along with other members of the range including a spiced fruit loaf. However, like many free-from products you do have to pay more than for a comparable standard product (around twice as much in the case of the fruit loaf). Still, with so little on the market it does at least give you an good option if you need a quick tea-time treat!
