Everyone has their own variation of this recipe so just remember to make it as plain or exciting as the tastes of your guests.
This is my plain version sure to please teenagers who don’t like too many vegetables in their fried rice.

CSR Sugar promoted their gluten free icing sugars in the latest “The Australian Coeliac” magazine as well as promoting their Free Recipe Books.
Click on http://www.csrsugar.com.au to take up their offer. “The Icing on the Cake” and ” Gluten Free Delights” are beautifully styled and full of gluten free recipes.
For something different, try the Cheesecake Brownies recipe as a muffin rather than a slice.
I have spent a lot of money buying Gluten Free Cookbooks which tend to be more gourmet than practical and whose recipes require 5 extra pantry ingredients.
However I feel that these CSR Sugar recipes keep in mind that we all have busy lives and that we just need for gluten free baking to be enjoyable and not too onerous.
Monte Carlos, Hummingbird Cake, Zesty Ricotta Cakes are but a few of the recipes on offer.
Once again, it is a reminder that you can access recipes through the websites for the gluten free products you use.
Inspiration is just but a click away.
