Gluten Free Date Cake

gluten free date cake recipe
Warm date cake.
Warm date cake individually baked in ramekins.
Warm date cake topped with hot caramel sauce.
All this and gluten free too!
This is a recipe you will want to make and share for dessert with your friends and family.
You can bake this gluten free date cake the day ahead and just warm it in the oven before serving.
I decided to make this cake using Cloud 9 gluten free all purpose baking mix. This gluten free flour blend is available at Costco.
I like that it has buckwheat in it thus making it a higher fiber blend.
You can easily remove these individual cakes from the greased ramekins thus giving you the option to place the small cakes on a plate.

Delicious Mini Chocolate Chip Gluten-Free Cheesecakes

gluten free mini chocolate chip cheesecake


Cheesecake.
Gluten Free Cheesecake.
Mini Chocolate Chip Gluten Free Cheesecakes.
That is the recipe I am featuring today.
What I love about this recipe is it allows you to vary the flavor of the cheesecake quite easily.
Want lime cheesecake?
Substitute the chocolate chips for lime zest and lime juice.
Want classic plain cheesecake?
Remove the chocolate chips and add 1 more tsp of vanilla to the batter.
Want blueberry cheesecake?
Substitute the chocolate chips for 1 cup of blueberries.
That is why I love this recipe.
Getting twelve for dinner and you want an easy dessert recipe that also presents itself in individual portions?
That would be this recipe. In fact this past Sunday that is what I made for dessert.
I substituted the chocolate cookies for gluten free graham crumbs, and I also
substituted the chocolate chips for lime zest and lime juice and topped the individual cheesecakes with whipping cream, a thin slice of lime, fresh raspberries and blueberries.
Did I say yum?
