    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    This recipe comes to us from Kaye Worthington. It is from an Australian magazine called The Australian Womens Weekly. When making them, you must remember that Australians use metric measurements e.g. 1 cup = 250 ml, etc. This recipe, which is free from gluten, dairy products and eggs, makes 1 fruit cake or pudding. Recipe can be made one month ahead, keep refrigerated.

    2 ¼ cups (360g) sultanas
    1 ½ cups (250g) chopped raisins
    ½ cup (75g) dried currants

    Celiac.com's Founder and CEO, Scott was diagnosed with celiac disease  in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. Scott launched the site that later became Celiac.com in 1995 "To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives."  In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
