I love cooking, but sometimes it’s nice to slack off and take the easy option.
I have deployed these gluten free profiteroles from Rule of Crumb a few times now for a Sunday dinner pudding, a birthday treat and even on Boxing Day. They are the perfect cheat dessert, as you keep them in the freezer until the morning you need them, then get the box out to defrost. It takes about 5 minutes to assemble them in a bowl and drizzle over the chocolate and salted caramel sauces, then ta-da!
The great thing is, they do look just like the photo on the packet. (I should say there are two boxes worth in my photo.) And they taste fabulous, if you have a sweet tooth. At £2.99 per box, it’s not even that expensive. Highly recommended!
Also from Rule of Crumb is this pre-prepared gluten free Chicken Katsu Curry, which I think is a fairly new product.
You have to make the accompaniments for this, but for the chicken, it’s a case of baking it in the oven for 20 mins or so and microwaving the sauce. You’re supposed to defrost it overnight in the fridge, but we didn’t realise so we cooked it from frozen for a bit longer, and it was fine.
Great flavour, nice bit of heat, crispy chicken. Lovely.
This is a great treat meal for those occasions when we really fancy a takeaway but just not another curry, which seems the only takeaway we can easily get these days.
Rule of Crumb foods are stocked by Sainsburys, Morrisons, Booths, Wholefoods and Ocado, according to their website. Or you can buy directly from their online shop, where you can see their other products.
Disclaimer: I bought (am still buying) these myself and genuinely think they’re great – this isn’t a promotional post 🙂
