There’s a reason it’s a classic. This teatime staple is the perfect balance of light, fluffy vanilla sponge with layers of sweet, fruity jam and silky buttercream – and it just so happens to be gluten, wheat and dairy free! With the help of our award-winning Gluten & Dairy Free Vanilla Sponge Mix, creating the quintessential Gluten Free Victoria Sponge is (ahem) a piece of cake.
Baking with your child is a fantastic way to teach them about a gluten free diet, and have some fun at the same time! From cupcakes to pizzas, we’ve got kid-approved gluten free recipes covered, and including some that are brand new for 2017!
Here at Delicious Alchemy HQ, there’s not much we love more than a party. And what’s a party without cake?
We wanted to make it easier to create a homemade party-perfect showstopper that everyone can enjoy, regardless of allergies, intolerances or coeliac disease. So we put our thinking caps on and set to work.

With temperatures reaching new highs this week and Brits everywhere finding a new sort of weather to complain about, we at Delicious Alchemy got to thinking about our favourite summery gluten free treats. From granola ice lollies to bread rolls perfect for picnics, there’s a little something for everyone. Which will you be trying this summer?
We know, only too well, how tricky it can be to live gluten free. Ensuring you have plenty of delicious free from products at home is doable, but it is a little tougher eating out and if you’re thinking of heading to a festival this summer, you might have a few concerns!
Festivals are the holy grail for pleasure-seekers to unwind and have some fun. However if you, or anyone in your family or festival group, can’t eat gluten, you might be wondering if there will be food available that you can enjoy. There most likely will be, but it’s always better to be prepared.
Follow our festival tips, and you’ll be organised and ready for any situation.
Today marks the end of Coeliac Awareness Week, an annual celebration of all things gluten free run by the wonderful charity Coeliac UK. This year, we’ve been celebrating with a new blog or recipe every day!
The fantastic foodie & fitness blogger Beth Heddle has created a delicious new recipe using our Gluten & Dairy Free Oats – introducing her Date & Sunflower Seed Granola! Simply scroll down for the recipe – it’s easier than you might think!
“I’ll admit, granola is a weakness of mine. I’ll eat it for breakfast, snack on it mid-morning and top greek yogurt and fruit with it for dessert. If there’s no tub of fresh granola in the house it’s probably because I’m ill.
Deliciously Alchemy make two amazing granolas, a nut and seed one and a berry one (if you’ve not tried these you’re missing out!!). This granola takes after the nut and seed one but combines the sweet taste of delicious dates with the nuts to give a crunchy but divine flavour.”
Beth is an award-winning blogger who has a passion for running, fitness, food and travel. When she’s not baking up a storm or pounding the pavements, she’s a student at the University of Birmingham. Make sure you check out Beth’s blog here, and follow her on Instagram for some serious fitness/foodie #goals!
We’re very proud of our Wonderfully Nutty Granola. Not only is it totally gluten free, it’s also a very key part of this deliciously simple recipe. Perfect for breakfast or a light dessert, these granola pots have it all!
We think it’s the homemade compote that makes these gluten free granola pots extra special. However, if you’re in the mood for an instant dish, simply substitute it for shop-bought… we won’t tell!
You can pick up a bag of our Wonderfully Nutty Granola in Sainsbury’s.
