One of my preferred gluten-free brands is Deliciously Alchemy and I’m delighted to be invited to work with them as they’ve just launched the UK’s only gluten and dairy free instant porridge pots and oats sachets in addition to their wide range of high quality bread and baking mixes and breakfast products.

Deliciously Alchemy was founded by Emma Killilea who gave up gluten for health reasons after she was diagnosed as coeliac.

Emma was pretty unimpressed by the variety of gluten free produce available when she was first diagnosed so she set out to change that.

Giving up her job as computer games producer, she headed back to uni, studied nutrition and marketing and then Delicious Alchemy was born. What an inspiration.

And Delicious Alchemy’s baking and bread mixes are off the chain good!

Hello brownies!

In fact so much so, I always make sure my cupboards are well stocked with their baking products. They’re super simple to make, so perfect for those days when you want fuss-free baking with all the great taste!

They’re always sharing superb recipes on their Delicious Alchemy Facebook and Delicious Alchemy Twitter, so make sure you check them out for lots of wheat free inspiration.

We were sent a hamper of gluten free goodies to review below and we were so impressed! Check out the brownies and bread recipe below.

So soft and gooey and full of flavour!

As well as being gluten free, the brownie mix is dairy free too, whilst all their products are GM free too.

We also had a go at baking the Deliciously Alchemy Bread too! So simple and just as good as any loaf you’d buy in a bakery!

Delicious Alchemy Gluten & Dairy Free Chocolate Brownie

 

To make 12 brownies, you will need:

  • 400g Delicious Alchemy Gluten & Dairy Free Chocolate Brownie Mix
  • 100g unsalted butter or dairy free alternative
  • 2 large eggs

Method

Preheat the oven to 180c /160c fan. Line a 20cm (8 inch) square tin with greaseproof paper, leaving in an inch of the paper to overhang.

Add the Delicious Alchemy Chocolate Brownie Mix to a bowl. Melt in the butter and stir into the brownie mix. When it starts to form a light batter, lightly beat the eggs and add to the mix and stir well. Pour the batter into the tin, smooth the top.

Bake for 18 – 22 minute. Remove from oven and leave to cool

I like to enjoy mine slightly warm still so they’re super gooey in the centre! Perfect with a refreshing cup of fresh mint tea.

Delicious Alchemy White Bread

 

We made our bread in the oven, but the mix is also suitable for bread making machines too! It’s so simple to make, all you need is:

  • 1 x 340g Delicious Alchemy White Bread Mix
    2 tbsp (15g) sunflower oil
    325ml of tepid water

Method

Lightly grease a 1lb 15cm x 10cm x 7cm bread tin. There’s no need to pre-heat the oven as this mix cooks from cold. Add the mix to a bowl and pour in the oil and water. Mix it all together.

Its better to use a food mixer as the batter can become very thick, so unless you have arms like Arnie you may struggle with a normal spoon.

Turn the mixer to medium speed and beat for 90 seconds. Scrape down the sides and base of the bowl and mix for a further 90 seconds.

Transfer the dough into the tin. It will be quite thick, so press down well and fill the tin right to the rim.

Loosely cover the tin with lightly oiled cling film. Leave to prove in a warm place for 40 minutes and then add to a COLD oven.

Then turn to 190C or 165C for fan-assisted ovens, and bake for 90 minutes. Only remove when it has a nice golden top. Leave to cool on a tray before serving.

    Your photos are just amazing. I really want the brownies, but I also want to drink that gorgeous looking mint tea! I didn’t know you were gluten free. I have a friend who is very seriously allergic to gluten. She has fits if she eats it so it’s so important to her that businesses like delicious alchemy do such a great range. Lovely post, I’ll let her know your recommendation!xx

    Thanks for the recommendation – I have a couple of friends who are gluten intolerant and it’s always a challenge to know what to buy when they visit.

    I too have been gluten free for over 2-years now! That bread is making me drool, I am going to have to make it!! Especially as can just pop it in the oven and don’t need a fancy machine. Oooh and just seen there is a discount code too – Yippee!

    I gave up sugar and wheat for a few months last year and I never felt so good. I’ve never heard of this brand so good shout! I think we’ll go on another purge this summer so I’ll check this out.

    Those goodies look amazing, hun. I am such a sucker for packaging… I sometimes buy stuff simply because it looks pretty. I’ll have to check whether their bread is egg-free, because if it is, Jumpy would love it! Even I am thinking I could have a slice now. Gorgeous photos, as always (I need lessons!). x

    Wow, how hungry am I after this post! You know I’m all about that bread (and brownies) and I have to say these really look delicious. I’m not gluten free but I’ve been impressed by the gluten free dishes and treats I’ve sampled at various points, and it’s great to know there are so many more companies catering for your diet without sacrificing on yum! Great post x
