Home for the Holidays Gluten-Free Style

Of course you know I am going to say how steeped in tradition the holidays are for us. And after all, our family has a long list of must-do’s for the season that we stick to like glue.

But this last year has brought some unexpected events and experiences that have left me understanding that simple moments are what really make this season bright.

Like the pride the boys get when they “help” Dad build the fire…and the sound of their belly laughs that are simply full of pure joy just because Santa will soon be burning his britches and squeezing his jolly belly through our chimney.

Dairy Free Cinnamon Bun Cake

Like belting out Christmas songs with my boys at the top of our lungs and dancing to them “like no one is watching”. And then giggling hysterically afterwards…

Like listening to Big Brother read Christmas stories to Little Brother and Big Brother asking questions and encouraging Little Brother like Mom and Dad usually do…

Vitamix Giveaway

And like sitting around the breakfast table together in our pajamas during the cold December weekends and enjoying special breakfast treats that are not normally made during the other times of the year.

Yes. Those are the kind of traditions that are making the season for me.

And this Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Cinnamon Bun Cake with an Eggnog Glaze plays a big role on these special holiday mornings for us. It actually looks like and tastes similar to a giant cinnamon bun, but it is yeast-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, corn-free, and easily egg-free.

Oh. And it is waaaay easier (and much faster) to make than real Cinnamon buns.

I place a layer of cinnamon bun filling (and a layer of raisins) on the bottom of my pan, then pour half of the batter in. Then, using a ziplock bag with a corner snipped off, pipe a swirl of the filling and add another layer of raisins. Then I place the remaining batter on top of this and pipe the remaining filling in that same spiral pattern. Because we love the filling so much, I have been known to double the filling recipe below for an extra dose of decadence.

The result when it is done baking? Does it not look like a giant cinnamon bun?

Oh, and then that dairy-free eggnog glaze is not so bad either. 😉

Cinnamon Bun Cake

Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Cinnamon Bun Breakfast Cake with Dairy-Free Egg Nog Glaze

Also Yeast-Free and Corn-Free; Easily adapted to be Nut-free and Egg-free

Ingredients:

Cake:

  • 1 cup Superfine Brown Rice Flour (such as Authentic Foods brand)
  • 1/2 cup Almond Flour -such as Honeyville (For NUT-Free: use equal amount Corn Flour, OR Quinoa Flour, OR Millet Flour)
  • 1/4 cup Millet Flour
  • 1/4 cup Arrowroot Starch
  • 2 1/2 tsp Baking Powder, Aluminum-Free
  • 1 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1/2 tsp Sea Salt
  • 8 Tbsp  Earth Balance Vegan Butter, softened to Room Temperature-IMPORTANT (if not Dairy-free, you can use regular butter)
  • 3/4 Cup Granulated Sugar OR Blonde Coconut Palm Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs, at Room Temperature-IMPORTANT (For EGG-FREE: Mix together in small bowl: 3 Tbsp Unsweetened Applesauce with 1 1/2 tsp additional Baking Powder with 2 Tbsp Warm Water and with 1 1/2 tsp Ener G Egg Replacer – use mixture where you would add eggs)
  • 1 Cup Plain Coconut Milk Yogurt (such as So Delicious) OR Plain Dairy-Filled Yogurt OR Sour Cream-Room Temperature-IMPORTANT
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Filling:

  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Sugar (or Brown Sugar)
  • 6 Tbsp Earth Balance Vegan Butter, melted, OR Regular Butter, melted, OR Coconut Oil, melted
  • 2 Tbsp Cinnamon
  • 3/4 Cup Raisins (divided)

Icing:

  • 2 Tbsp Earth Balance Vegan Butter, or Regular Butter, Melted
  • 3 Tbsp Corn-Free Confectioner’s Sugar, such as 365 Organic Powdered Sugar made with Tapioca Starch, available at Whole Foods
  • 2 Tbsp Dairy-free Eggnog, such as So Delicious Holiday Nog, or Regular Dairy Egg Nog
  • 2 tsp Vanilla Extract

Directions:

1.  Preheat Oven to 350 degrees.  Grease a 9 inch round cake pan on the bottom and sides. Then cut a piece of parchment paper to fit just in the bottom of pan, without letting it go up the sides.

2.  In medium bowl, mix together Superfine Brown Rice Flour, Almond Flour, Millet Flour, Arrowroot Starch, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, and Sea Salt.  Whisk together until light and airy.

3.  In bowl of electric stand mixer, beat Earth Balance Butter (or Butter) and Sugar for 3 – 5 minutes until light and fluffy. Then add eggs (or Egg Replacer), one at a time, continue mixing.  Add Yogurt and vanilla and mix again until incorporated.

4.  While mixer is going on low speed, slowly add dry ingredient mixture. Stop occasionally to scrape down sides with rubber spatula. Once all dry mixture is added, continue to mix until well-incorporated and batter seems light.

5.  Mix together filling ingredients (Note: if you like a lot of filling, double the filling ingredients).  Spoon 3 – 4 Tbsp of filling into bottom of pan and spread evenly with back of spoon. Sprinkle half of the raisins over the filling.  Pour remaining filling into a ziplock bag and snip small corner off one side of bottom.

6.  Pour half of batter over bottom raisin/filling layer. Then, pipe filling from bag in a circular spiral, starting in center of pan and working outwards. Sprinkle remaining raisins over filling.  Then pour remaining batter over raisins. And, again pipe all remaining filling in circular spiral pattern. Use a toothpick to follow the spiral to incorporate it slightly into the batter.

7.  Bake for 40 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.

8. During the final few minutes of baking, whisk together all of the icing ingredients. Once cake is out of oven, let cool for 5 minutes then cover pan with dish and flip onto plate. Then cover cake with another plate and flip onto that one so cake is right side up. While it is still warm, drizzle the icing evenly over the top of cake. Enjoy!

  6. On December 6, 2011 Andrea M said

    I love cinnamon everything – this is an amazing recipe! What makes this season bright for me is the Name of Jesus: Immanuel means ‘God with us’…the birth of Jesus brought God to earth, to walk among us, so that we absolutely know without a doubt He is aware of us and can comfort us and rejoice with us and give us strength to fight temptation among other things because He has been there…and He not only this but Christmas leads to Easter which validates He was God in the flesh and all He said was True because He died and was raised making it possible for us to be reconciled to God. THIS makes this season more than Bright for me :D!

  7. On December 6, 2011 Jeanine said

    Oh Kim…I don’t know what to say. It’s all beautiful! The cake, and the boys in their jammies reading to each other. Sounds like your family is living a Wonderful Life. Enjoy!

    I love looking at all of the fun decorations this time of year, and of course decorating my own home.

    Your recipe looks delicious. My family used to make cinnamon rolls for Christmas breakfast, but I haven’t had any since going gluten free 2 years ago. Now I’m also corn free, so had about given up hope. Now I have a recipe to try! Thank You!

    Before going gluten free, I would make cinnamon buns for Christmas morning to have before presents were open. I have not tried to make gluten free cinnamon buns since going gluten free; this recipe will be tried to bring back the memories. Thanks!

  18. On December 6, 2011 Gramma22 said

    That cinnamon “roll” looks so yummy as I sit here with my hot cup of coffee. I am so thankful that now my granddaughter has been diagnosed with celiac – that we are able to make such yummy items for her! She was diagnosed at 4 and is doing super! She’s also a Type I diabetic (like me!) and we truly will be enjoying this season thanks to you and all your other bloggers! HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

    My brightest part of Christmas this year is that my children are the perfect age in that Christmas is so magical for them and seeing it through their eyes, brings back that magic for me. They are also getting the idea of giving being as great as recieving and I love all of the secrets going around making secret gifts for each other.

  20. On December 6, 2011 Heather said

    This looks WONDERFUL.! Thanks for sharing

  21. On December 6, 2011 Johanna B said

    My new baby grandson makes the season bright for me. There’s something magical about Christmas with a little one that makes everything even more special (even tho he has no idea what’s going on). As always, love your recipes.

    For something so fancy looking, this sounds easy. LOVE the photos of the kids. OMG, they are so cute!

  23. On December 6, 2011 Amy said

    This looks lovely! And so delicious. My son just asked me if we can have some “cooking class” today (we homeschool)…wonder if that question was brought on by the photo of this cake! haha

    What makes the season bright is my family together for the holidays!

  32. On December 6, 2011 Deborah M said

    This looks so delicious. I have a hard time finding all these different flours where I live, but would love to try this for Christmas morning.

    I love everything about Christmas, the Christmas carols, the decorations, Hallmark movies. But mostly I love it because of what God did for us on that day. He sent His son, Jesus Christ to this earth to become a living sacrifice for our sins and to reconcile us to Himself through his death on the cross.

    • On December 6, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Hi Deborah, if you can find a good all-purpose gluten free flour blend that you like (I really like Pamela’s or Pure Pantry or Tom Sawyer or King Arthur), then you can just use 2 cups of the all purpose flour in place of the first four flours listed.
      And thank you so much for sharing the real reason of Christmas and why it is so special. After all, that is the most important reason. Have a wonderful holiday!

    Being the second Christmas of gluten free for the kids, not being scared of baking, having fun and making new family traditions making this year bright. Having the kids feeling better and my son not so sick for the holidays.

    I think what makes this season bright for me was those pictures and stories about your boys. Nothing could complete that better than your Cinnamon Raisin Cake.
    I love the excuse I get to bake until I drop and then the late night tour of the homes lit for Christmas.

  44. On December 6, 2011 Stephanie said

    This recipe looks amazing! Is there another flour that I could substitute instead of millet — I don’t have any of that flour? And instead of yogurt, do you think milk kefir would work? And thanks so much for the give-away! I love the holidays because it’s a time to see my family. My husband (of 4 months!) and I now live several states away from our families, so I love this time to see them all again!

    • On December 6, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Stephanie, you can use more almond flour in place of the millet, if you are not nut-free. And kefir would be perfect in this. It would act a lot like buttermilk would. Have a wonderful holiday!

  58. On December 6, 2011 Sarah C said

    I love the holidays! I especially love decorating and thinking about that perfect thing to get for that certain someone (my super hard working hubby this year). I love wearing bells for jewelry and going crazy with decking the halls in my favorite color, red. I also love getting together with my family for our special cookie baking day. This year, that will be a little different since I found out that I am allergic to wheat and yeast. I can’t wait to try this recipe, it looks so super yummy. It also reminds me of another tradition, before I got married we used to get the Pilsbury cinnamin buns and I would put then on the pan in the shape of a tree, then dye the icing green and brown and ice it to look like a tree. Now it looks like I might be trying that this year in a gluten-free style! I can’t wait to try it!

    Most of all, I hope to be making new traditions next year, when we hope to start a family. Right now the cutest story I have to tell is that my dogs love to lay down right under the Christmas tree. Right now our newest addition has discovered the tree skirt and couldn’t wait for me to finish putting it down before she claimed it. Next year… I drean of holding a little one who gazes intently at those twinkling lights on our tree.

    OH. MY. GOODNESS! What a fabulous recipe. Thank you for sharing and reminding us all about the “simple joys” that often can be overlooked during the busy holiday season. What makes the season bright for our family is going out to cut down a tree the Saturday following Thanksgiving and decorating up the whole house and turning on the Christmas lights on the Sunday after Thanksgiving. It’s also sharing goodie bags filled with gf baked goods for all our neighbors and delivering them on St. Nicholas Day (today). Merry Christmas blessings!

    Wish I could see you for Christmas but we’ll see you later! 😀

    Love it! My boys have all gone gluten-free this year and my husband is feeling a little ‘neglected’ this holiday season because the holidays have always been a time of rich, comfort foods for him. But I can hardly make him a rich, gluten-filled treat (or allow him to make himself one) and then tell my boys no. So, I’ll make this over the weekend and hopefully it will fill him up briefly. Thanks again!

    Being with friends and family makes it bright for me! Knowing that this time next year, our precious baby girl we’re adopting will be home from Eastern Europe enjoying this beautiful season with us makes this Christmas even more exciting!

    Great recipe! I love how it looks like a giant cinnamon roll without all the work. Definately going to try this one!

    This year, I’ll be more in love with the holidays because it means a break from Teachers College….which is fast and furious.
    I cannot wait to be done this final essay, and finally time to stay home and bake up a storm for the holidays. I love our Christmas morning tradition and the on the Boxing Day couch routine that I have had for many years; pot of tea and grand marnier, a great book and the fire going all day long. Books have always been a huge part of our families Christmas. And yes, on Boxing Day the house is quiet, save for the snap of the fire and the turning of pages.
    The cinnamon bun looks amazing.

    Looks great and will definitely make my season brighter! This year’s Christmas is with the in-laws and they always have Pillsbury cinnamon buns for Christmas breakfast. Now that I’m GF, I will be making this and bringing it for me! Hooray for modified traditions!

  106. On December 6, 2011 Paula B said

    This looks delicious!

    My family (especially my grandchildren) makes the season bright for me. Also, I volunteer with Habitat for Humanity and this year two families will have new homes just after Christmas in our small community. That certainly adds to the Christmas spirit.

    What makes this season bright: three things. 1) my little family’s determination to celebrate big and really enjoy Christmas, even though we lost my dear sister and her family of 5 to the west coast this past August and my kids have never not celebrated with their cousins! 2) that this is probably the last year of no-holds-barred Santa magic belief (my kids are 5 and 7), and 3) for the first time, my parents are staying with us Christmas eve/day and will get to participate in the magic through our kids!
    Thank you for this give-away–it’s incredible!

    • On December 6, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Lisa, I think this may be the last year of no-holds-barred Santa belief this year too! My kids are 7 and almost 5 and it is the kids at school that worry me most. I fear someone there will be spilling the beans soon. ;( Enjoy doing it up big with your family and having your parents be a part of the magic!

    There are many things that make my season bright–family, friends, and giving in general. There is nothing greater than giving something to someone and seeing them smile. Other aspects brighten my season like seeing decorations and lights, music, and events like holiday parades. It is my favorite time of year. 🙂

    The brightest things about Christmas for me are the eyes of my children as they enjoy the traditions and activites of the holiday… The excitement in their eyes as we get out the Advent calendars, go tree hunting, make cookies, decoratethe house, and sing Christmas carols just makes them into my little toddlers again. My kiddos are 14, 12, and 10… So getting to see them be excited about the holidays and our family get-togethers is a nice respite from the way the world pulls us in different directions during the rest of the year. 🙂

    That cinnamon bun cake looks awesome! Can’t wait to try it! The best thing about the holidays for me is getting to travel to see my family. I don’t see them much during the year because of distance, so it’s nice to spend a whole week with them. (And I also really love all the beautiful lights, music, markets and decorations!)

    This time is a special time of year because it affords me casual time to be with friends and family. It’s cliche. I know! But I am a freelance worker who is and has a son who is allergic to gluten and dairy, so my time is limited in my “regular” life. The holidays seems to be one time of year to spend with those who we don’t see throughout the year due to distance issues or work demands. It is unfortunate that we don’t MAKE the time to spend with our loved ones, but it is a fact of life.

    This year will be a special one because my son is four and the magic of Christmas is just everywhere in our home. I am looking forward to it all.

    This recipe looks unbelievable! Thank you.

    What makes the holidays bright for me are THE MEMORIES. I can easily slip back into my Iowa childhood when Santa came at midnight on Christmas Eve and we awakened to Christmas overnight! We lived in the country and went to one of Dubuque’s famous one-room-school houses. We weren’t near any stores and people didn’t have Christmas lights and decorations like today. It was truly magic to us.
    Today, Dec 6th, is St. Nicholas Day and we celebrated that day also in our German-Irish neighborhood. A huge pounding came on our front door and we would find a bag of tangerines and assorted nuts. We always searched for St. Nicholas and could never even find his footprints in the snow. It was wonderful!

    Thank you for your gluten-free recipes and insights. This is somewhat new to me and I’m so grateful to find that others have walked this path before me and I have so much help figuring it all out.

    This year we are doing a family vacation to the Bahamas for Christmas (Dec.13-19) since my kids are scattered all across the country. So, my family always makes Christmas special! But with the trip over and no other gifts, trees, parties, etc. I am excited to concentrate on the real meaning of Christmas-Jesus! Too often He gets lost in the plans, stress and fun of the holidays.

    Cinnamon rolls have always been a tradition on Christmas morning even now that my kids are grown and moved out. We have them when they come home or on Thanksgiving if they’re home for that instead. This past Thanksgiving I made them but could only watch them eat without me! So happy to see this recipe, I’m going to try it for Christmas even though it will just be my husband and I! Thank you!

    For me the holidays are about sitting around with my family enjoying some of my Grandmother’s traditional baking and drinks. This year I’m trying to recreate these, allergy-friendly style. Gotta get those same tastes and smells, or it just isn’t the same!

    The joy and delight and excitement of my children is what continues to make my Christmas bright. Even through some dark years, they have still brought me joy.

    Oh now that looks tasty. Something I’m now going to have to make. But what makes the season bright for me, is slow downing and taking in the change of seasons. Enjoying good times with friends and family and being able to share good meals, laughter and company of one another, which the holidays should be about.

  260. On December 6, 2011 dawn said

    Wow! I am glad i found your blog. I see lots of good helpful info and recipes. Loving the jumbo cinnamon bun.
    It’s is the simple things that make the season bright for me… twinkly lights, a child thankful for a simple gift, and mostly thinking of the first Christmas and the light that Jesus brings to this world… no matter how difficult life is, He gives hope.

  261. On December 6, 2011 Arlee said

Anyway, you always give us all the good stuff in your posts … belly laughs from the boys are definitely some of the best things in life. 😉 It’s important to know what matters most during the holidays and you certainly do, dear.

    Thanks so much for this great recipe! My 4 year old was recently diagnosed as gluten intolerant and you are going to help make this Christmas season bright for him! 🙂 (I’m still learning and trying to stockpile as many new ideas as possible!)

    As for me, we recently moved to a new state and I am looking forward to going back “home” and seeing family and friends. Being surrounded by those who know and love us is a much anticipated “season brightener” for us!

  304. On December 7, 2011 kelly said

    Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful recipe. Me and my daughter are both gluten and casein free but this is our first Christmas and I’m struggling with what treats to make but still keep it yummy for everyone. This looks like a super winner!

    Spending time with immediate as well as extended family is what makes the holidays special to me. We all live such busy lives and don’t spend nearly as much time together as I would like. With two of children away at college and the others busy with their personal lives and my husband so busy with his job sometimes it feels like we are strangers. Everything slows down a bit and we can catch up and laugh together for a week or two. LOVE IT!

  305. On December 7, 2011 Sarah L said

    This looks sinful but oh so yummy! It is going to be hard to pick only one or two of these fabulous recipes to share with my family. Since we are traveling to my brother and sister-in-laws, they tend to already have so much food already made so I will pick a couple that I can take along so I can enjoy, too!

  306. On December 7, 2011 Linda C said

    What makes the season bright for me is the wonderful Christmas songs and carols!

  307. On December 7, 2011 Neva said

    What makes the season brighter for me is reconnecting with all of the people we often don’t see day to day through the year. The joy and happiness shared, the good wishes and the spirit of the season – Jesus – shared will all during the concerts and caroling.

  315. On December 7, 2011 LisaB said

    Wow! This is definitely on the Must Test list. We live at 7,000ft altitude, and baking GF at altitude can be a challenge. I’ve found that yogurt (or coconut milk yogurt) really helps maintain the structure of high altitude GF baked goods. I was really excited when I saw the coconut milk yogurt in your recipe! I’ll let you know how it goes…
    What makes the season bright for me is knowing that I can make holiday treats that are safe for my son and me to eat. There are so, so many holiday treats that we *can’t* have. It’s so much fun to try out new treats that we *can* have.

  316. On December 7, 2011 Andrea said

    I’ve just recently had to go gluten free/dairy free and your sight is a God send!! I never knew all of the fun amazing things you can do GF!

    My favorite part of the holiday used to be eating all the gingerbread and Christmas cookies that I could get my hands on. Since I have to be gluten-, dairy-, and sugar-free now, I have to be content with what used to be my 2nd most favorite part: buying presents. I hate crowds, but online shopping is a lifesaver.

    What makes the season bright for me? Definitely the hope and joy that Christ’s birth has brought to our lives, especially this year when things have happened that have been very difficult for our family.
    Also, my four-year-old son makes the season bright. Each year, he understands Christmas time a little better, and seeing the world through his eyes is magical. He really enjoys everything about this season, and it makes it so much fun to experience those things as a family.

  362. On December 8, 2011 Karen, WA state said

    Can this be prepared at least partially ahead and then cooked on CHristmas morning?

    • On December 8, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Karen, I would say that the night before you can combine all of your dry ingredients in a bowl for the cake batter and also combine all of your filling ingredients as well (and then just heat them up in the morning so you can spread it easily). Then in the morning I would get out all of your wet ingredients (personally I would even get them out the night before – even the eggs – to make it all room temp and quick to throw together in the morning). It actually comes together really fast, for the most part!

    For me it’s just the luxury of having several days off in a row to share with family and friends. This recipe looks awesome and is going into my “keep” pile. Can’t wait to try it.!

    My boys, who were both diagnosed with celiac in 2011, make this holiday season and everyday bright. Watching my oldest inch closer and closer to healing makes me feel very grateful.

    Spending time with my family and enjoying great food makes the holiday so special

    Children make the holiday season brighter for me.The season has become much brighter since the grand children were born.

    Getting to see family that live out of town makes this season bright for me!

    Wwhat makes this season bright for me? Well, where do I start? I get to spend a week (or more) at home, sleeping in my own bad and having an access to real kitchen. (Otherwise I live in a dorm.) I get to play with my little nephews, take care of my dog, listen to Christmas songs and enjoy holiday food. I love holiday season!

    OOPS…I was suppose to mention what makes the season bright for me. Making things!!! Just wishing I would start making things sooner, and I can’t wait to make this Cinnamon Bun Breakfast Cake! (sorry about posting twice = )

    Celebrating Jesus’ birth and having all the family together makes me happy at Christmas. Your Cinnamon bun Coffee Cakes looks delicious. Thanks.

    I love seeing the anticipation on my girls’ faces and how much fun we have making treats for our neighbors and teachers.

    Oh and I “liked” you on FB. I have several GF friends that follow my “likes” 🙂

    Yum, this looks so good! Family is definitely what makes my holiday season bright! Happy Holidays!!

    This looks so incredibly yummy! I haven’t had cinnamon rolls in over a year! Can you use more almond flour instead of millet? I’ve been addicted to almond flour lately since it just seems to agree with our tummies better. My kids (who are gluten free also my son is autistic) will love having a tasty treat on Christmas morning!

    • On December 20, 2011 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Hi Andrada. You should be totally fine using more almond flour instead of the millet! I hope you enjoy it!! I hope you have a wonderful holiday! 😉

    What makes the season bright for me is spending time with family, especially enjoying a festive meal together! I love cinnamon buns, so this cake will be wonderful!

    Does this really not crumble with no gums?

  385. On January 17, 2012 Jess said

    If you are corn free also, is there a substitute you can use for the Earth balance butter? I am pretty sure that has corn in it. thanks

    Sounds delish . Will definitely give it a try

  387. On November 30, 2012 Kelly said

    Shared on Facebook….Question though….instead of the 3 different flours….could you use a gluten free mix such as Bob’s Red Mills All Purpose? http://www.bobsredmill.com/gluten-free-all-purpose-baking-flour.html?&cat=15 If so, would I need to make any other changes?

    • On November 30, 2012 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Hi Kelly, You can definitely use an equal amount (2 cups) of an all purpose baking mix without any problem. I used Pamela’s new Artisan mix with this and worked out wonderfully. You should not have to make any other changes for it. Enjoy!

    Hi Kim! We enjoyed this for Chrostmas morn. I used a combo of quinoa, oat, brown rice and arrowroot flours and used the egg free version, subbing chia meal for the egg replacer. Super tasty…although without the guar gum is was a bit crumbly…albeit moist! Next time I would add a teaspoon of guar gum! Thank for our breakfast treat this morning!

    • On December 26, 2012 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Hi Tessa!! Hope you had a wonderful Christmas! Thank you so much for letting me know how it worked with all of your substitutions. 🙂 I agree that the guar gum would probably make the difference in this one. Glad you liked it! Enjoy the rest of your holidays, my friend! 😀

    This recipe was by far one of the best gluten free recipes I have tried. Fantastic for Christmas morning with fresh fruit!. No one could even tell it was gluten free. Lovely!

    • On January 4, 2013 Kim-Cook It Allergy Free said

      Yay!! Thanks so much for coming back and letting me know that you enjoyed the recipe. We made it for Christmas morning too…along with a ton of other stuff 😉 . I am glad that everyone enjoyed it at your house! No one knew it was gluten free here either.
      Happy New Year!
      Kim
