Gluten-Free Christmas Pudding with a twist...

A recipe just in time for Stir-Up-Sunday - or pretty good any time from now until just before Christmas. (Give it a week to mature at least!).

Ceri Jones's Gluten-Free Chestnut, Ginger & Pear Cake

I love using chestnut flour in cakes for its naturally sweet flavour, meaning very little sugar is added to the cake.

Gluten-Free Apple & Cranberry Pies

These are a fresh look at the traditional mince pie, although this recipe works equally well with gluten-free mincemeat.

Gluten-Free Stollen

Gluten-free marzipan lovers can join the feasting with this version of traditional, yeasted German Christmas bread. Made using Shipton Mill bread mix flour, it is enriched with ground almonds and bejewelled with cranberries and apricot pieces soaked in port.

Blueberry and hazelnut muffins with lemon and poppy seeds

These gluten free muffins are a favourite with children. The addition of lemon zest and poppy seeds makes them really special.

Gluten-Free Lemon & Pistachio Biscuits

Super easy to make, you can do them in advance and refrigerate for up to 3 days - just cut as many cookies as you want to bake from the chilled dough log and they'll be freshly baked every time. They keep really well in an airtight tin if they're not scoffed at first sitting.

Rhubarb cake with green macha

This simple, versatile cake looks stunning if made with young, pink new rhubarb that comes into the shops in January. The rhubarb can be substituted with blueberries , raspberries, plums or strawberries if you would like to vary things a bit.

Gluten-Free Raspberry and Apple Muffins

Makes 6 large muffins: you can make these at any time of year using frozen raspberries, but using fruit in season make deliciously fruity muffins with a lovely citrus burst in the mouth, and the ground almonds add richness and moistness without making the result too heavy. These went down very well in the office at Shipton Mill!

Gluten-Free Apple Tart

This apple tart takes a tad longer to prepare due to cooking and pureeing the fruit prior to baking, but it produces a lovely smooth tart with a good flavour, and looks really good if you leave red skins on the sliced apples for decoration - only if you're using organic fruit though. The gluten-free pastry can be made in advance and kept cool in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Gluten-Free Rice, Maize and Chia Seed Scones

Stick with the method in this recipe - if you haven't made it before and you're expecting a nice soft scone dough to cut rounds from, it will surprise you! Instead of a soft dough it makes a sticky disc that you smooth with an egg and milk mixture and your fingers, the addition of chia gel turns the mixture into lovely scones with a good flavour.

Gluten-free Blueberry Pancakes

These are delicious in summer served outdoors with fresh fruit and yoghurt, or crushed summer berries and maple syrup. Make them in winter leaving out the blueberries, and turn them into something more substantial for Sunday mornings - serve them with grilled bacon and maple syrup, garnished with a slice of orange, Martha's Vineyard style. Makes around 5/6 American style pancakes

Gluten-free Victoria Sponge

Gluten-Free version of a classic, great to share! Gluten-free flour can have a 'dry' mouth feel, but using the tried and tested Victoria Sponge recipe with our blend produces a good result. Load it up with berries and edible flowers for a really pretty tea party.

Gluten-free Scones

Makes 6 triangular scones - perfect with lashings of clotted cream and homemade jam. This 'mud pie' method really works, you need to get your fingers wet with the egg-and-milk mixture to make a perfect smooth finish - but don't flatten the dough too much. You'll be rewarded with a proper scone that can be split apart, and the addition of the ground almonds gives them a lovely rich texture.

Raspberry and lime yogurt cake

This is a delightful, soft beautifully flavoured cake which is gluten free and easy to make. It doubles up nicely as a pudding served with fruit and ice-cream.

Gluten-free Simnel Cake

We developed a Simnel cake using 50/50 gluten-free sorghum and millet flour instead of wheat flour. It came out very well, the middle layer of marzipan sank quite a lot but the cake was lovely and moist and chewy, and it couldn't be told apart from an Easter cake made with wheat flour - everyone can enjoy a slice! Decorate it with a few primroses, tiny chocolate eggs and some little chicks.

Sweet White Rice & Millet Popovers with Cherries

The sweet white rice and millet flours, together with the high egg content in this recipe produce a rich, custard-like interior to these delicious batter puddings, best served and eaten whilst still warm. You can take this idea either way - try making savoury Yorkshire puddings by leaving out the sugar and serving with a traditional roast dinner, or change the fruit filling to chunks of eating apple and spice it up with a bit of clove and cinnamon... let us know what you make of it!

Pumpkin, carrot and walnut cake with cashew orange frosting

This is similar to a carrot cake, but so much better! With its spices and distinctive deep flavours of the teff flour, Palmyra nectar and the nutty cold pressed rapeseed oil, it’s a delightfully warming cake. The pumpkin purée keeps it scrumptiously soft while studded with lightly toasted crunchy walnuts and juicy sultanas (seedless golden raisins).

Chestnut, Cranberry & Pine Kernel Madeleines

Makes 18 mini madeleines. This recipe is based on the traditional Italian Castagnaccio cake with pine kernels and fresh rosemary, which was eaten a lot during WW2 in northern Italy when wheat flour was in short supply and chestnut flour was considered a poor alternative. We've adapted it to make mini madeleines with the unusual combination of rosemary and cranberries. They can be an acquired taste - particularly if you're used to traditional French madeleines which use egg white as a raising agent and icing sugar to sweeten which makes a very light, sweet mouthful - this healthy version is chewier with only a little sugar, and the chestnut flour is high in protein. Tip: 9-hole silicone moulds with the firm wire surround are easy to handle and the madeleines release easily

Beetroot, Orange & Walnut Muffins

Moist and packed with flavour - these muffins are a real treat. Using vegetables in your cakes and muffins is a healthy option that adds flavour, colour and fibre to your recipe. Niki Segnit's Flavour Thesaurus describes toasted walnuts as having a 'hint of nicotine bitterness'; we've chosen to team them with earthy beetroot in this recipe (the recipe doesn't say toast the walnuts as the combined flavours work well without) and it works really well. The courgette provides a lovely succulent background, and the orange adds a final citrus burst. With all these flavours all you need is our white rice flour to provide the perfect base for a vegetable, fruit and nut muffin feast.
