Strawberry tartlets for afternoon tea @BordBia

Gluten-free Strawberry Tartlets 🍓

For the tart crust – 
300g ground almonds
4 tbsp melted coconut 
4 tbsp maple syrup
Good pinch of sea salt

For the jam – 
300g strawberries
1.5 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp maple syrup

Fresh Strawberries, washed and sliced, for decoration


Preheat the oven to 180deg celsius. Combine all tart crust ingredients in a bowl, they should resemble fine breadcrumbs but come together into a crumbly dough with a little pressure.

Line a muffin tin with paper cases. I used silicone reusable ones which can easily be purchased online or in a homeware dept, they are better for the environment too. Place a large dessert spoon of the mixture in each case, then use your fingers to push the mixture into the sides of the cases until they stick and resemble a crust. This is a little messy but well worth the effort.Place tartlet cases in the oven for 10-12 mins until they are golden brown. 

In the meantime, take 150g strawberries and place in a blender until they are smooth and frothy. Add the chia seeds and maple syrup and blitz for a further two minutes. Place to one side and allow the jam to thicken until you are ready to serve the tartlets. Prepare the remaining strawberries for decoration.

Remove tart crusts from oven and allow to cool fully before prepping to serve. When ready to serve, fill the cases with jam and place strawberry slices on top. 

Serve with whipped cream or ice cream and enjoy! x

Odlums Gluten-Free Doughnuts

What you need:
500g of Odlums Self Raising Gluten Free Tritamyl Flour
20g of caster sugar
7g of fast action yeast
2 pinches of salt 
300ml of milk
2tsp of baking powder
50g of melted butter
50g of caster sugar for dusting the doughnuts
Oil for deep frying 
For decorating
Odlums mini marshmallows

How to:

  1. To make the doughnuts, place the gluten-free flour, caster sugar, salt and yeast in a large mixing bowl and make a well in the centre.
  2. Add the milk and butter and, using your hands or a wooden spoon, combine the ingredients until you have a dough.
  3. Turn the dough out onto a floured work surface and knead for 8–10 minutes until it becomes smooth.
  4. Form the dough into a smooth ball and place it back in the bowl.
  5. Cover with a tea towel and leave in a warm, dark place to rise for about 1-2 hours until the dough has risen.
  6. Once the dough has risen tip out onto a lightly floured surface.
  7. Divide into 12 pieces and shape into balls and flatten. Place on a lightly floured tray, cover with a cloth again and allow to prove for another 10-15 minutes.
  8. Fill a large-sized pan with sunflower oil and heat to about 160˚C.
  9. Drop the doughnuts into the oil, 2-3 at a time, and fry on each side until golden brown.
  10. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate and continue frying until all doughnuts are done.
  11. Place the caster sugar in a large bowl and toss each doughnut in caster sugar once cooked and allow to cool.
  12. Once cooled fill with the Nutella chocolate filling.
  13. Pierce them with a small knife and then using a piping bag and small nozzle pipe the Nutella into the centre.
  14. Drizzle over more of it on top of them and then finish with the mini marshmallows. Enjoy.
