Gluten Free Nut Free Cream Cheese Brownies - HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Love brownies?

Here's another heavenly brownies recipe that I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND.

It's fully loaded with chocolate, extremely moist, muddy and gooey plus a little chewy. It is sweet but not too sweet, a little salty and heavenly creamy with a good amount of cheesecake-like cream cheese topping. Oh! Very very very delicious!

Many of my friends who had tasted this brownies told me that it is yummy. And they were surprised when I told that the brownies are gluten free.

"How did you bake this brownies so moist and gooey?" My friend asked.

"Just don't over-bake it." I said and she was like Oh! Easy...

Gluten Free Shortbread - Melt-in-your-mouth, Easy and Anyway that You Like - Mocha / Chocolate / Cranberry with White Chocolate

I don't have celiac disease or gluten intolerance but I don't mind baking and eating gluten free food. Having said that, I like to emphasize again that gluten free food is NOT a healthy diet as it is a diet for people who can't consume gluten.

So why am I baking and eating gluten free food? I have to say that SOME gluten free food can be really seriously YUMMY!!! Like these melt-in-the mouth gluten free shortbread...

Like Ben and Jerry Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream and mine has NO eggs

Sad that our Aussie summer is ending...

At least, it has been nice and hot for the past week and my ice cream maker has been busy running.

As usual, I get many ice cream requests and some can be quite confusing, contradicting and weird... LOL!

"You should make ice cream that is creamy but not with too much fat."
"Mum, I want ice cream that is like Ben and Jerry's."
"I don't want raw eggs in my ice cream."
"I don't want any eggs in my ice cream and it has to be creamy."
"Can you add less cream in my ice cream? Cream is fattening."
"My ideal kind of ice cream has to be easy to scoop and not icy."

"Mum, I want you to put brown sugar into my ice cream!"
"I want my ice cream to be not too sweet and not too bland."
"I want good chocolate in my ice cream but the chocolate has to be sweet."
"We want interesting connoisseur flavoursome type of ice cream and cannot be too sweet."

I hope you will have a good laugh reading these comments. I did whenever my husband and son said these.

Yes that I hear them. They want interesting connoisseur type ice cream that is creamy, sweet enough and tasty but don't want the ice cream to contain too much cream, too much sugar and eggs especially the raw ones. Hmmm...

I used to make good creamy ice cream base at here, here and here with a few of Ben and Jerry's recipes. The base is made with cream and milk in the proportion of 2:1 or 1:1 or 1:1.5 but all of these recipes require 2 large eggs or 3 tbsp whole egg powder to create a good creamy texture.

Can we make a good creamy ice cream with no egg? Yes, of course! Just simply add more cream and less milk... Common sense! Having said that, the ice cream with more cream will be richer with a lot more calories than those with less cream and has eggs. So, do you think which is better?

Fluffy Soft Super Moist Hot Cross Buns that will stay soft and moist even on the next day!

I love hot cross buns but hate them when they go dry and stale on the next day! Hmmm...

What to do???

I can keep the leftover buns in a freezer for up to 2 weeks so that the buns will remain soft and moist when they are freshly defrosted.

Or I can use the stale hot cross buns to bake bread and butter pudding.

Or toast the stale hot cross buns and enjoy them with butter.

Or bake my latest soft and moist hot cross buns recipe!

These hot cross buns are the fluffy soft and super moist type that can stay soft and moist even on the next day!
