I didn’t try German chocolate cake until I was in my teens. Isn't that crazy? As a kid, I thought of it as “grown up cake” (whatever that means) because of the Coconut-Pecan frosting. See, I was convinced I hated coconut, and I wasn’t crazy about nuts in baked goods, and the combination of those two textures in a thick caramel frosting was too much for my poor little brain to handle. Fortunately, I slowly acquired a taste for different flavors and textures (including coconut and pecans) and after trying it again over the years, it has climbed the ranks and become one of my favorites.

Buckwheat cereal on its own tastes lightly nutty and pleasantly earthy. The tropical explosion comes from using coconut milk as a base for the cereal and by mixing in creamy mashed banana as the sweetener. Chunks of tart-sweet pineapple create an unexpected but perfect contrast to the light, smooth buckwheat cereal. And get this — this recipe is not only gluten-free, it’s vegan. Gasp! You don’t have to be hardcore on either of those fronts to enjoy it, though. Read More »
Custard pie is a natural for breakfast (or any other time, for that matter). It’s even more of a natural when you replace the sugar with maple syrup, and surround it with this delicious, nutty-tasting whole-grain crust. Deep and earthy Hodgson Mill Rye Flour and the subtle sweetness of Hodgson Mill Oat Bran Cereal and Whole Wheat Pastry Flour are balanced with just the right amount of butter, making a crisp, melt-in-your-mouth crust that cradles the cool, custardy coconut filling.

I’d really like to call this “Piña Colada Pineapple Upside Down Cake”, but I feel like it already has such a long, unwieldy name . . . how else can I describe the moist, springy cake softly scented with coconut, with the tangy-sweet fruit on top and the rich dark molasses-y syrup soaking into it? Then for accuracy’s sake I’d also have to add in “gluten-free” and “dairy-free” and “Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Piña Colada Pineapple Upside Down Cake” . . . that’s a mouthful. And I think the cake speaks for itself in that regard.
It’s always fun to add a new flavor to my gluten-free repertoire – and it’s all built on Hodgson Mill’s Gluten-Free Cake Mix, which I love. No matter what I do to it, it has a nice, light, springy texture, and it’s just sweet enough. It’s such a good base for so many variations! I’m plotting many, many more… Read More »
