Fruity Syllabub Toasts (GF)
This recipe is great if you need to whip up some gluten-free sweet party treats last minute, are light as a feather and melt in the mouth. I used Genius Gluten-Free Soft White Farmhouse Bread as this new improved loaf definitely has better taste, texture and aroma and is their most dependable bread to date. My entire family could see a huge improvement, especially my biggest little critic William who has coeliac disease. I had to be quick taking the pictures as my 4 year old was also eager to snaffle one before I could stop him!
The toasts were topped off with raspberries and mint leaves, but you could use what ever seasonable fruit you have in your fridge.

Makes: 12 Toasts
3 slices of Genius Gluten-Free Soft White Farmhouse Bread
25g / 1oz butter, melted
3 teaspoons caster sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon
Lemon Cream Ingredients:
125 ml / 4fl oz double cream
½ lemon, zest and juice
3 tablespoons mascarpone
3 tablespoons lemon curd
25g / 1oz icing sugar
Raspberries, to decorate
12 mint leaves, to decorate
Pre-heat the oven to 200°C / Fan 180°C / 400°F / Gas 6
1. Remove the crusts from the bread and place a piece of cling film over the first slice of bread. Gently roll out to approximately 2 – 3mm thick and slice diagonally into quarters, repeat with the other 2 slices. Place the bread triangles in either a lightly greased muffin tray or dome mould to create the curved shapes.
2. Next, brush the bread sparingly with the melted butter and sprinkle over the caster sugar and a pinch of cinnamon. Bake in the oven for 10 – 12 minutes or until crisp and golden then remove the toasts to cool on a rack.
3. Meanwhile, in a medium sized bowl, whip the double cream until it forms soft peaks and place on one side. In a separate bowl, combine the lemon zest, juice, mascarpone, lemon curd and icing sugar and stir until evenly blended.
4. Fold in the whipped cream and spoon or pipe a generous amount onto each cooled cinnamon toast. Decorate each with a mint leaf and a raspberry before serving and sprinkle with a little more icing sugar for decoration.
