No bake gluten free desserts are just the thing to kick off a warm (almost) summer weekend. Since this Sunday is Father’s Day, why not show him this gluten free recipe collage and let him pick out his favorite gluten free pudding? Then, as soon as day turns into night and everyone else has gone to bed, make each of you a serving of a ready-in-a-flash microwave gluten free cake for 1. Kick back, relax, and remember what it was like before there were so many demands on your time.

Here’s the 10¢ tour of these gluten free no bake stovetop & microwave recipes (remember – the links are all above):
Gluten Free Banana Pudding: When I first posted a recipe for gluten free ‘nilla wafers years ago, everyone was all, yay! Now we can make banana pudding! So I made it, too. To be just like you. You’re so smart!
Gluten Free Chocolate Pudding: This is how I like to make chocolate pudding – with egg yolks, for a super smooth, custard-like feel, and my xanthan-gum free basic gluten free flour blend instead of cornstarch as a thickener. Cornstarch causes pudding to leak as it cools. This way, it stays smooth as silk.
Gluten Free Rice Pudding: No flour, no eggs, no cornstarch. All you need for super creamy smooth rice pudding is starchy arborio rice, and the right technique. Sprinkle the top with some cinnamon, and you’ll wow your guests.
Gluten Free Smooth Caramel Pudding: We made corn-free pudding, how about corn-free caramel? I’ve got the perfect recipe for caramel sauce that doesn’t call for corn syrup but is still just as smooth. Let’s use it as a base to make smooth caramel pudding.
Microwave Gluten Free Chocolate Cake for 1: Sometimes, we all need some near-instant gratification. This is the cake you make for yourself after everyone else has gone to bed and you just need a rich taste of chocolate cake without any of the fuss. Ready in 2 minutes, flat.
Microwave Gluten Free Cinnamon Bun Cake for 1: If you really really want to treat someone for Father’s Day, try making him a single serving of this cake. Give him a spoon and the newspaper, and make sure everyone else leaves him alone for at least 30 minutes. Best Father’s Day gift ever!
