German Chocolate Cupcakes from Wheat Free Meat Free

Kalinda of Wheat Free Meat Free made these lovely German Chocolate Cupcakes for her grandmother’s birthday. In addition to giving you a clearly delicious recipe (one look at the photos will tell you that), she also explains the origin of “German” in the name. Kalinda describes these cupcakes as “light and springy” and says the chocolate flavor is mild. But don’t think these cupcakes are Plain Janes. Kalinda explains that “The frosting is much more the star of the show. Coconut and pecans held together in a caramel sauce.”

Lemon Cake (Cuter Than Gluten)

Light and fluffy! Grain-Free, Paleo Lemon Cake from Cuter Than Gluten [featured on AllGlutenFreeDesserts.com]

Grain-Free, Paleo Lemon Cake from Cuter Than Gluten

If you’ve ever baked grain free, you will know that it can be difficult to make a grain-free cake light and fluffy, but Dawn of Cuter Than Gluten has done that with this Lemon Cake. She says her secret and lets us know that this cake is “barely sweet,” but then gives you lovely sauce options if you want to up the sweetness. Blackberry sauce, orange caramel sauce, and whipped coconut cream are the options she mentions (and shows you), but the sky’s the limit. Once you make this grain-free, dairy-free cake—which also happens to be paleo—you can top it however you wish!

Fig Pinwheels from The Food Lovers Kitchen

Fig Newtons are a cookie beloved by many, if not all. However, these Fig Pinwheels from Bill and Haley at The Food Lovers Kitchen are sure to bring more folks over to the fig cookie lovin’ fold. These Fig Pinwheels require several steps and some time (e.g., an hour for soaking the figs in pomegranate juice, 30 minutes for the dough to chill in the freezer), but the photo shows that they are clearly worth it. With ingredients like almond flour, figs, coconut oil, maple syrup, and pomegranate juice, it’s not surprising that Bill and Haley call these Fig Pinwheels “equal parts gourmet and home-made goodness.” That’s a combination that always appeals to me, plus I appreciate that these cookies are not only gluten free, but also grain free, dairy free, and refined sugar free.
