Pretty pastries that happen to be free from gluten and refined sugar are just the thing for a Mother’s Day gathering. A featherlight mousse cake, naturally sweetened with blueberries, honey and Medjool dates, and decorated with scented geranium flowers; buttery almond shortbreads filled with a delicate curd of lemon, honey and thyme. These treats from Henrietta Inman and Emma Galloway are sure to please anyone who appreciates alternative ingredients and delectable, nourishing food. Gluten-free flours such as teff, buckwheat and quinoa, and natural sweeteners like coconut sugar, maple syrup and dates have unique characteristics, and plenty to offer the experimental cook.
