There was a time when gluten-free meant sacrifice. Horrible, terrible sacrifice. One of the sacrifices I made was to give up Stollen which is one of my all time favourite sweet breads. Christmas was Stollen, Stollen was Christmas – that’s how life has always been ever since I was a kid until I had to give it up. Well – guess what? Yesterday I found a gluten-free stollen which is as fabulous if not more fabulous then your regular old wheat-ridden stollen. I swear even the most discerning consumer of regular stollen would not be able to tell the difference.
Where did I find this fabulous golden morsel? At the Sweet Tooth Cakery ! I love the fact that they don’t put gluten-free in their name. Why?Because it doesn’t make one iota of a difference that they’re gluten-free. They make cakes, breads and sweets that are fabulous for both the GF crowd and wheat- eating folks alike.
