You will need…..

• Gluten-free Brownies enough to fill bottom of pan  (recipe below)

• Gluten-free Marble cake or sponge cake cut in thin layers

• Dairy free custard (recipe below)

• Coffee syrup (recipe below)

Gluten-Free Brownies

115g  (4 oz) bittersweet baking chocolate cut into small pieces

3/4 cup of parve (non dairy) margarine(170g)

3 eggs

2 cups sugar

1 cup Gluten free flour mix (I use Better Batter®, but any will work)

1/2 tsp salt

1 tsp vanilla

2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

In a big saucepan, place chopped chocolate and margarine and melt at low temperature and whisk until all dissolved. Move pan away from heat.

Once luke warm, add eggs and vanilla and whisk in. If chocolate is too hot, the eggs will cook, so make sure your chocolate is cooled down enough. Batter should get thicker. Add dry ingredients into the wet and continue to whisk together by hand. Use spatula to scrape down bowl.  Empty thick batter into an 8×8 pan lined with parchment paper and some cooking spray. This will make a thick brownie. If you desire thinner brownies, use a larger pan. Bake at 325 for 35-40 min. Check if done by using a toothpick to make sure it comes out clean or atleast not raw or liquidy.  If making with larger size pan, you will need to decrease time.  This recipe doubles well. If you double it, use a 9″x13″ pan.

Once brownie is ready, let cool for an hour and then place into freezer. Once frozen, remove brownie with parchment paper.  You can wait a few moments to allow for easier cutting. Squares will be straight and clean using this method. If you want to store brownies in freezer until ready to eat, place each square or portion in plastic wrap and then you can store in your freezer. Take out an hour before you plan to eat. They are fabulous cold, so don’t be shy to keep them in the refrigerator until ready to eat!


3 egg yolks

1/2 cup granualted sugar

1 cup or 225 g  non-dairy cream

1 cup  non-dairy whipped cream

1 tsp vanilla or liquor

Beat egg yolks & sugar with a paddle attachment in your mixer until very light in color – almost white & fluffy. Beat in cream cheese and vanilla to the mixture. In separate bowl with a whisk attachment,  beat whipped cream until it is fluffy and light.  Add to egg mixture and continue beating until custard is stiff.  The
custard freezes well, but will need to be beat again if taken out of freezer.

Coffee syrup

1 cup of water

1 tablespoon instant coffee (or more for stronger taste)

1 cup sugar

Dissolve coffee in hot water in a small saucepan over heat. Add sugar until mixture is heated through and sugar is dissolved. Take off heat and cool. This mixture can be bottled in fridge for several weeks.

Tiramisu-ish Directions

1. Take any size pan with a high edge. I like to use a loaf pan. Line it with parchment paper. Fill the bottom with brownie squares so that there are no spaces and tightly packed to the edge. Don’t worry if you see lines.

2. Using a pastry brush, brush the brownie top with coffee syrup. Spread a layer of custard on top.

3. Cut vanilla or marble cake in slices and arrange pieces in one layer on top of custard.  Once again, pack it in so that edges are filled.

4. Using a pastry brush, brush the cake with a generous amount of coffee syrup. Spread a layer of cream on top.

5. Repeat step 3 and 4 one or two more times until close to the height of your pan.

6. Spread last layer of cream on top. Using a straight or rippled edge, run knife flush over top of pan to get a clean finish.

7. Freeze the cake. After an hour, you can run hot water on a knife and run through sides of pan between cake and parchment paper. Place back in freezer for a few hours. Freezing the cake makes it easier to take the cake out of pan.

8. Pull out the parchment paper and remove cake from pan. You can cover sides with cream for decoration if you like. You can also dust top with cocoa powder using a sifter or top with cookie crumbs.  This dessert freezes well. Take out an hour before you want to eat it.

9. Let sit in refrigerator until ready to eat.

I have a neighbor whose 4 year old is allergic to soy, wheat and gluten.  I looked through this website to see which products might be good for her son.  I found Pastariso White Rice Mac and Cheese with COR, an excellent Kosher certification from Canada.  They are free of Gluten, Wheat, Eggs, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Fish and Soy.  They do contain dairy.  They also happen to be on sale right now for $2.99 for a 6oz box or $2.78 when you buy 3 or more boxes.  They also have Pastato Cheddar macaroni and cheese for $2.99 for a 6oz box which is made from potato and is again gluten, wheat, egg, peanut, tree nut, fish and soy free, made in a gluten free facility to avoid cross contamination and contains no preservatives.  Also Kosher certified by COR.   

They also have a wide-variety of cakes, cookies, breads and challahs that are specific to each allergy-free group, as well as cake, bread and pizza  mixes, hot and cold cereals, snacks, soups and pastas that are free of all or some of the following allergy ingredients: gluten, soy, nuts, wheat, eggs, peanuts, and or fish.  Some of the popular products are the gluten-free Better Batter Fudge Brownie Mix, the Biscottea Blueberry Tea Shortbread, and the Hodgson Mill Gluten Free Bread Mix. You can search the site  based on allergy, brand, category or price. 

A nice money-saving feature is the loyalty rewards program where you get a point for each dollar purchase which can be redeemed for money off when you buy more products from this site. 

But the greatest convenience of all, in my opinion, is that all the nutritional information, allergy information, complete ingredients list and Kosher certification is easily viewable for each product before you buy it. 

It saves you a lot of time going up and down the whole food/health food stores searching for ingredients and Kosher certification.  I think this website is a great chessed(kindness) for all busy moms who have kids with allergies.

So Delicious coconut milk by Turtle Mountain is a healthy and tasty alternative to soy or rice milk.  It is great to use as a substitute for milk in a recipe that you want to make non-dairy or parve.   I use it when I make non-dairy desserts such as cakes, puddings and ice creams as well as in soups, main dishes, pies and kugels to give them creamy texture while keeping them non-dairy/parve.  Its also a great coffee creamer. 

Coconut milk is growing in popularity  because it not only tastes great but it has tremendous health benefits as well.   It is known to be high in Vitamins A, B, C, Calcium, Protein, Iron, and Selenium.  Its oils are said to have natural healing properties and help balance blood sugar.
