Vanilla Custard Sauce (British)

Vanilla Custard Sauce (British) by Marlin Rinehart

This sauce is served over steamed puddings, fruit crisps (crumbles), and any dessert that would be enhanced by a creamy vanilla sauce. It's the perfect homemade replacement for Byrd's Custard powder.

Scottish Shortbread

Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake

Butter and Flour Free Chocolate Cake by Hungry Jenny

This contains chickpeas which might sound strange but actually works really well! It doesn't taste particularly 'chickpea'-like and is still incredibly moist despite having no butter.
