Gluten-free and Dairy-free Strawberry Kuchen
I have plans for this weekend, nothing ambitious, but a cookout with my immediate family is worth my attention. I want to bake a typical gluten-free dessert, but I can’t make up my mind. I have done the pie, and honestly my older son doesn’t like any kind of fruit pie. So in my search for an alternative I stumble onto Southern Living Magazine. Their recipes are very interesting, and I decided to try a couple: Strawberry Kuchen and Blueberry Cornmeal Cake. I increased the ingredients slightly because I want to use my fabulous 10″ USA pans, and adapt them to be gluten-free and – this time – dairy free as well.
I also looked for a chocolate-lover alternative, and I found that the Mississippi Mud Cake looks and sounds very indulgent, rich and festive. Unfortunately I don’t have the ingredients to make it dairy-free – sour cream being the challenge – so I settled for the gluten-free version.
This is a Southern Triple Bake for this challenging Fourth of July. Sit tight, it will take a few posts to cover it all!
I hope you all will be able to enjoy the festivities, safe and healthy.
