Dairy Free Christmas Cake To Buy

I tested various different fats while developing this vegan Christmas cake, and found that the versions made with dairy free margarine were superior in both taste and texture to those made with coconut oil or sunflower oil, so that is what I have used for this recipe.

To make a vegan version, simply swap the butter in the gingerbread for dairy free margarine or coconut oil, and follow the recipe for vegan royal icing from my Tombstone cupcakes to ice the biscuits with.

To make this vegan Christmas cake alcohol free, soak the fruit in the same quantity of orange juice. Bear in mind that if you aren't feeding it with alcohol then the cake won't keep for as long, so bake it the same week that you want to serve it.

If you choose to make an Iced Christmas cake you could cover it with a layer of marzipan and then a layer of white fondant icing. Make sure to brush the cake with a layer of apricot jam so that it sticks and ensure that any shop bought icing is dairy/gluten free if required.

In some parts of the UK, fruit cake is often eaten with slices of cheese. As this is most common in the North West of England, local cheeses such as Lancashire and Wendsleydale are common. This is obviously not a great option if you are dairy free but is otherwise worth trying!

There are many other ways to be creative with Christmas Cake. One great creative way is to slice it and gently fry it in a little butter (or dairy free alternative). This warms the spices and slightly caramelises the crust. Serve with cream (or alternative) and fruit for breakfast.

Hi. I'm Vicki Montague, scientist and mum to 'Roo' (15) and 'Sunshine' (13). I'm a freelance recipe developer specialising in 'free from' food and spend many hours in my kitchen experimenting to create exciting healthy recipes that are all gluten-free & mainly dairy-free. In July 2016 I launched the world's first wholegrain, gluten-free and rice-free flour blends. In May 2018 I launched my first online programme to help people adapt to a gluten free life. I can be found at food festivals giving cookery demos and I love nothing more than teaching people how to cook and lead a positive wholesome life. Find out more about my story...

Gluten-free Christmas cake recipe - you just can't beat this homemade, festive classic. Nobody would know it's Coeliac-friendly and wheat-free too. See the FAQ section for a video on how to line your tin - don't skip this part!

Hi, I decided to try this cake this year but I plan to cook it ahead because of lack of time and freeze it. When I come to serve it do I simply defrost it naturally or do I reheat it in the oven considering that it would already have been baked.? Can I freeze it unbaked and bake it once defrosted please? Thanks for your help

Hi Yanika, I would not freeze the cake unbaked. I would bake it and then freeze it. You can simply thaw it rather than bake it again when it comes time to serve it, though warming it in a gentle low oven heat might produce a nicer result rather than just simply naturally defrosting.

Hi monique.. I am writing as I seem to be in the minority as far as a baking success.This is not to criticise, but I am wondering where I went wrong.After making 5 x 12cm flourless christmas cakes from an old Taste recipe which was ok,,I had about 400gms of very boozy hand cut dried fruit left over. Looked for another recipe and came across yours,I purchased extra fresh dates and soft pitted prunes..chopped them up and added to the other fruit.I ended up with approx 625gms of fruit,,so basically a quarter more than the recommended 500gms. Upped the flours by one quarter and added one egg.So no need to boil water and the fruit mixture was very moist.All went well until the final mix of wet and dry had a very sandy feel..and after one hour that is how the top of the cakes still felt to the touch. I looked at your pic and my result and was extremely disappointed.By turning the cakes over, and glazing the bottoms with a mix of strained marmalade and date syrup, they look ok,but I do wonder about the gritty nature of the original surface of the cake. I bake a lot of flourless cakes for friends and school fundraising using only almond meal. Coconut flour will never again be seen in my kitchen as I cant help but think it maybe the culprit. Apologies for being so long winded

Make your cake well in advance of your party so you can simply enjoy the festivities. Keep it in the pan to prevent any other items from bumping into it, cover with a layer of plastic wrap, and label clearly. It should keep in the freezer for up to 6 months.

On the evening of December 28 2015 I decided to try this recipe. Our baby was 3 days overdue and to be induced by day 5. I was craving Christmas cake. It's almost impossible to find a gluten free recipe for Christmas cake so finding this was a gift indeed, and it read & looked divine. After one piece it was time for bed. An hour later my waters broke and our son was born the next day. A sweet and wonderful way to arrive!

NPR reported several years back on the history of how Christmas cakes become popular in Japan; today they are a holiday tradition that anyone can enjoy, even those of us with allergies.

All their cakes are gluten free and made with almond powder. The Christmas cake is filled with raisins and figs and has a layer of chocolate on top. It is a different style from most of the other Christmas cakes on this list, but I enjoyed its hearty taste. Leftovers would be a perfect lazy breakfast or shinkansen snack.

Having said this, I personally used my rice-free home-blended Gluten Free Alchemist Blend B. The protein-rich darker flours offer a greater depth of flavour as well as supporting the body of the cake.

Whether you love it or not, fruit cake is a long-standing holiday tradition that is here to stay. It may look complicated, but it's actually very simple to bake a gluten-free fruitcake, and it will taste just like you remember.

Traditional Flavors: Dried Fruits, heady liquors, and warm spices combine to make this gluten-free fruit cake as delicious and flavorful as the fruit cakes that have been made for centuries.

Options: You can make a gluten-free fruit cake that is alcohol-free, egg-free, or nut-free too! We'll share options in the recipe so that you can make whatever adjustments you need to.

Unsalted Butter: Butter gets this Christmas cake started! It will be melted, so you can start with either cold or room-temperature butter. For a dairy-free fruit cake, use vegan butter or coconut oil in place of the butter.

Orange: Get one large orange. We'll use the zest and the juice to make our gluten-free fruit cake. You don't need to be too precise, but you should end up with 2-3 tablespoons of zest and cup of juice.

Cherry Brandy: For a classic old-fashioned flavor, cherry brandy is the ideal liquid to use to soak the dried fruit for our cake. For an alcohol-free version, use additional orange juice, or see my other suggestions below. 041b061a72
