Welcome to the first recipe from my We Wish You a Healthy Christmas series!
Between now and Christmas, I will be sharing my favourite Christmas appetizers, entrees, mains and dessert recipes with you. Every recipe is healthy and will be gluten, dairy and refined sugar free. I will also include some vegan and paleo options.
For my first recipe I am very excited to be sharing my Gluten Free Christmas Fruit Cake with you. This is the one and only recipe from eCookbook “BecomingSweet” that I will be sharing on the blog – and it is an absolute winner.
Desserts have always been high on the agenda during Christmas and the festive season. In the past, I would normally eat any dessert that was offered to me (despite having being lactose intolerant and gluten sensitive) and would then suffer the consequences afterwards. Having immense tummy pain and bloating is not a great way to spend your Christmas! The last few festive seasons been a little different as I have started making gluten and dairy free desserts and avoiding the ones that do not agree with me.
I have been experimenting with a gluten free version of a traditional Christmas cake for a while now, and I firmly believe that this version is a good as the more traditional version. If you want to be a little naughty, I have also added instructions to make it just a little alcoholic 🙂
