Desserts are always the issue when you have certain food diet. Expecially gluten and dairy free makes it a bit more difficult and if you don't eat chocolate. Like me. I tell you about two desserts I truly can eat. A lot. These two are good choises if you want to have some delicious sweet after a good dinner if you need to have gluten and dairy free desserts. Actually you can resolve two days dessert with these recipes. The best thing is that you can use the whole egg - egg yolk to crème brûlée and egg white to meringue. Because we all know how easily one of those stays in fridge and only way they can go after some time is compost.
I found great recipe for coconut crème brûlée from Fvonf blog and the recipe is by Sabine Hueck. I changed the recipe a bit with changing the normal cream to oat cream and voila, there you go - dairy free dessert. You can find the Sabine's recipe here. I made my version just changing the cream to oat cream. It's not so difficult as I remebered. Not at all. You can also make them day before and then just make the final preparation before serving. A good party tip.
What about meringue? I love Pavlova cake. I guess it is quite popular during the summer because then we have so many great fresh berries and fruits and Pavlova is just the right place for those beauties. Some lemon balm is always a good idea too or mint. In my dairy free version I don't have cream. But if I would - I would have coconut cream.
For this size cake you see in pic you need
3 egg whites
1 tsp potato flour
1 tsp vinegar
a bit rose water
some bourbon vanilla powder
fresh berries like cherry and strawberry
Beat room temp egg whites and sugar until they are firm foam. If you turn your bowl upside down it should stay there - not on the floor. Add other ingredients. Spread to baking paper in shapes you like. Bake in oven in temperature 100-120 C 1,5-2 hours. The time depends on how soft you want the inside to be.
In between two meringue you can put fresh berries like on top of it. My absolute favorite is cherry and then starwberries, blueberries, rasberries...the list is endless ;)
