Browse hundreds of recipes with a gluten-free option. Easy and healthy gluten free meals, delicious cakes and desserts.


  • You can also use 6 canned pears, roughly chopped.
  • This cake can also be baked in the oven. It will take 35-45 minutes at 180°C in a 20-22cm cake tin.
  • Make it gluten free: Use gluten-free self-raising flour and baking powder and check almond milk, icing sugar and ground ginger (if using) are gluten free.

HFG tip

  • This cake needs to be made in a medium-sized slow cooker with a base of 20-22cm to ensure a good-sized round cake for cutting.
  • Place a tea towel under the lid when baking — this stops the steam and water from dripping on to the top of the cake and making it soggy.
