We have some news!….

Hello everyone!

Apologies for being so quiet for the past week or so – it’s not because we’ve deserted you, we promise!

We have some very exciting news!

We’ve been working on some big new projects at Intolerant G HQ. The first is that we’ve merged our old business website and this very blog, and created our brand new website!

It’s almost ready to launch, so this will be the last post from us on this site.

Our old business site will be switched off, and our new site will be live – we’ll be sure to let you all know when it’s gone live!

You will be able to find us at:

http://www.intolerantgourmand.com

We’ve loved your company here over the past 2 years, and would absolutely love it if you would join us over at our new site where there will be even more recipes, even bigger competitions, along with our usual reviews, and updates on Callum’s ongoing journey.

There’s also some exciting new projects coming up in the next few months that we can’t wait to tell you about!

Thank you all so much for your support, and we hope to see you on the other side!

Allergy Safe Christmas Pudding!…

Delicious allergy safe Christmas pudding, free from egg, dairy, wheat, gluten, nuts and citrus!

Allergy Safe Christmas Pudding…

Did you know that tomorrow is ‘Stir It Up Sunday’? It’s an important date in the calendar of a foodie, as it signifies the start of the Christmas prep, yay!

Now, whilst Christmas is wonderful, it can prove to be quite a challenge when it comes to catering for multiple allergies.

I’ve really struggled to find delicious treats that can be shop bought, almost all of the ones available have something that isn’t safe for Callum.

So, true to form, I have created a truly delicious Christmas pudding that is safe for most allergens, as it is egg-free, dairy-free, nut-free, wheat-free and gluten-free and it just so happens to also be citrus free!!

It also uses the mincemeat recipe that I posted earlier on in the week, which makes life a lot easier!

This recipe is so quick to make, that even if you don’t make it this weekend, it will still be perfect for Christmas lunch. You could even make it the day before!

Delicious allergy safe Christmas pudding, free from egg, dairy, wheat, gluten, nuts and citrus!

You will need:

  • 10.5oz (300g) mincemeat
  • X3 egg replacer
  • 4 tbsp treacle
  • 7oz (200g) molasses
  • 4 tbsp brandy (optional)
  • 3.5oz (100g) dairy-free butter – softened
  • 7oz (200g) gluten-free self-raising flour
  • 4 tbsp dairy-free milk

Method:

Grease and line the base of a 1.5 litre pudding bowl.

In a large bowl, add the mincemeat, egg replacer, treacle and molasses and stir well.

Add the brandy (if using) and dairy free butter and mix well.

Slowly stir in the gluten-free flour, followed by the dairy-free milk.

Pour into the prepared pudding bowl, cover with a disc of greaseproof paper and then place on a plate in the microwave.

Cook on the medium setting for around 20-25 minutes. Use a skewer to check the middle is cooked.

Leave to stand for 10 minutes, then add 2 tbsp brandy (if using) and leave to soak in.

Cover well, and remember to feed each week with 2 tbsp brandy (if using) in the run up to Christmas.

When ready to use, heat in the microwave for 3 minutes on medium heat, transfer to a heat proof serving dish and then pour 2 tbsp brandy (if using) over the top.

Flambé and serve with dairy-free cream, custard or simply on its own.

Enjoy!

The day I have feared for so very long…

Callum nebuliser

I knew it was coming! I’ve always known it was coming! I just never wanted to admit it was almost here, and now it’s getting too close for comfort!

Last week, I got the shakes just turning my laptop on. That’s never happened to me before, not once. I usually have absolutely no problem with it. It’s an everyday occurrence that we all take for granted, right?

So what made this day so different?
