  • 1 packet Jus-Rol Gluten Free Puff
  • 100 g gluten free bread crumbs to be vegan make sure you use an egg free bread e.g. B Free
  • 150 g golden syrup
  • 1 tbsp lemon zest
First glaze (to help pastry brown)
  • 1 tsp golden caster sugar
  • 2 tsp dairy free milk
Second glaze (to make pastry shine)
  • 1 tsp golden syrup
  • 1 tsp boiled water
Icing drizzle
  • 3 tbsp icing sugar
  • 1.5 tsp soya milk (or other dairy alternative)
  1. Take your puff pastry and cut into 4 equal size squares (you could ave trimmings for another bake, maybe make jam tarts at the same time and add a lattice top to them) Set the squares aside until needed.

  2. In a saucepan heat the golden syrup and lemon juice and add your bread crumbs. Take off heat and set aside to cool slightly.

  3. Cut your puff pastry squares as shown below and add the golden syrup and crumb mixture, fold the two corners over to create the criss-cross effect.

  4. Mix the milk alternative and sugar together and brush over the tops of the puff, this will aid the pastry to brown a little.

  5. Pop in a preheated oven set at 220C/200C fan/Gas 5 for 15mins

  6. Remove fro, the oven once beautifully browned, whilst still hot, using the pastry brush add your second glaze to create a deliciously beautiful shine, allow to cool completely

  7. Make the icing drizzle to decorate your danish pastries...eat the same day (as if I needed to say that!)
