Hello. I have a friend coming for (casual) "picnic" type lunch tomorrow who is providing the main course and I want to provide the pudding. She has a gluten intolerance.

Does anyone know of a fail-safe recipe for gluten-free (ideally) biscuits or brownies or some such please?

I did do a search but the only suitable recipe I found was one that used rice flour and I am not sure I can get my hands on that this afternoon.

brownies which my gluten free friend raves about.

Oh yes, should have thought of almond/polenta cakes of course! Thanks! And meringues too!

Will keep those in mind for the future but I think brownies might be more suitable on this occasion.

Thank you for your suggestions! I will be buying the ingreds later today for baking tonight so keep them rolling in!

The Doves Farm gf brownies are super easy, and you can easily get the Doves Farm gf flour

Thanks, the Doves Farm recipes does look good (don't live in UK though so not sure if Doves available here, will look).

Lovely as the Nigella brownies are, I think the Doves ones are possibly more "picknicky". (Will reserve the other recipe for when she comes to supper!)

Biscuits/cookies are quite forgiving and you could try any blend of gluten-free flour if you don't have Doves farm.

Can't speak for brownies though ...

Another gluten-free thing I make is rocky road type chocolate fridge cake thing. Just buy gluten free biscuits if you want a crunch in your chocolate bars. wink
