Christmas and New Year Baking

Christmas is my absolute favourite time of the year. I love everything about it and, especially in recent years, one of the things that I get most excited about is deciding what Christmasy things I’m going to bake to enjoy throughout the festive period and into the New Year. This year has been particularly fun as I have been baking not only for myself and family, but also for selling at the cafes – something which has made Christmas even more exciting knowing that all sorts of people will be enjoying my homemade gluten free mince pies etc! So I thought I would give you a little sample of some of the festive treats that have been leaving our kitchen in the last few weeks…

Ginger and Clementine Loaf topped with pomegranate seeds:

So as you can see I’ve been very busy doing what I love and am sad Christmas and all its wonderful treats is over… however a New Year means lots of new and exciting gluten free bakes so I best get going… !
