Baking & Beads!

I bake a lot - as well as bead - and did consider calling this blog baking beads!  I have the autoimmune conditions coeliac disease and dermatitis herpetiformis.  Further complicated by a sulphite real terms it means I make everything from scratch.  

Orange Shortbread baked tonight for North Tyneside Bead Club.........hope they like - first time they've being subjected to my gluten free baking!  Great gluten free recipe - but do prefer them when they spread and are crispy!  The tips provided with the recipe are great - the addition of freshly squeezed orange juice helps with the binding process - something that is an issue in gluten free biscuits.  Resting dough in the fridge helps with the flavor.


  1. Well, they look really yummy! I'd love to try the recipe, I'm a bread baker as well. My blog did get a dose of :)

  2. Oooo I can"t wait. They look so scrummy x
