Great British Bake Off – Alternative Ingredients

This weeks Great British Bake Off was about alternative ingredients for example not baking with sugar, dairy and gluten.

My first bake was a sugar free cake and I opted for a carrot and orange cake. The sweetness of the carrot was enough to replace the missing sugar.  I loved this cake from the beginning right the way to the last slice.  The house smelt of mixed spice and the cake was really moist.  I didn’t miss having the sugar kick although my mam found it harder.  The orange frosting on the outside of the cake also added to an amazing cake and I would make it again.

My second bake was the show stopper dairy-free ice cream rolls.  I made a caramel dairy free ice-cream with a light banana sponge.  Unfortunately it  didn’t all go to plan what with my ice-cream not freezing properly and I tried to make a pattern in my sponge that didn’t turn out as well as I wanted but the bake still tasted very yummy.

My last bake is yeast free and perhaps one of my all time favourite foods.  Pitta bread for some reason I have never made them before and I don’t know why as they are so easy to make, needs no proving and are just made from flour and yoghurt.  Of course they taste even better than shop bought ones.
