Avoiding gluten means more than giving up traditional breads, pasta, and pizza, but while science is still new, there are claimed benefits of the diet, including improved health, weight loss, and increased energy. If you’re up for the challenge, or actually don’t tolerate gluten, Seattle-based baker Tiffany Howard is here to make the process easier, and more importantly— sweeter.
Having adopted a gluten-free diet, she creates and shares recipes of elaborate cakes that have zero gluten. “I transitioned to a gluten-free diet about a year ago, and while I still love over-the-top cakes, I want to create recipes for every day as well as for special occasions,” remarked Howard in an interview with le buzz.
Her blog and accompanying Instagram, Oh Honey Bakes, are filled with mouth-watering desserts that will have you gagging (even without the gluten). Recent recipes include a gluten-free apple cinnamon cake and a pumpkin cake with gingersnap toffee and cream cheese buttercream filling.
“I fell in love with baking about ten years ago,” says Howard. “I started baking insane cakes after I had my son, and friends started asking for the recipes. When we moved to Seattle, my friend Holly of The Modern Proper encouraged me to start posting the recipes somewhere, so I did! I really had no expectations, it was just something fun for me to do.”
Her food photos are beautifully curated, adding an overall atmosphere of coziness and comfort, which is exactly what we seek this winter.
