Delicious Alchemy are an award winning company that are dedicated to creating the very best gluten free food. They make and sell everything from cake and bread mixes to breakfast cereals.
What’s their story?
After being diagnosed with coeliac disease, Emma Killilea very soon became a little miffed at the lack of natural, healthy and delicious gluten free food there was available. Not one to quietly grumble in the corner, she did something about it. Emma packed in her job as a computer games producer, returned to University to study food science and marketing, and not long after, Delicious Alchemy was born.
She is now surrounded by a team of talented, passionate and equally motivated people, some of whom have first-hand experience of living with coeliac disease and food allergies. Emma and the Delicious Alchemy team are 100% committed to extending the range further, making gluten free options commonplace, and doing whatever they can to help more and more people live happy and healthy lives.

What's on Offer at ilumi?
Just because you can't eat gluten doesn't mean you should miss out on the Great British Bake Off hype! So we've decided to link up with Delicious Alchemy, who's kindly let us sell their brownie and bread mixes on our site from today.
Take a look at how you can make your very own gluten free bread and brownies by using Delicious Alchemy's mixes below:
Delicious Alchemy Bread Mix
Make your own fluffy loaf of gluten free white bread with Delicious Alchemy's pack of bread mix:
To bake in the oven
1 x 340g Delicious Alchemy White Bread Mix
2 tbsp (15g) sunflower oil
325ml of tepid water
This mix cooks from cold. So there’s no need to pre heat the oven. Lightly grease a 1lb bread tin, measuring 15cm x 10cm and 7cm deep. Add the bread mix to the bowl, pour over the oil and water then mix together. A food mixer is best because the batter becomes very thick and heavy during mixing. Turn your mixer to slow-medium speed and beat for 1½ minutes. Scrape down the sides and base of the bowl and mix for a further 1½ minutes.
Transfer the dough into the tin. It will be quite thick, so press down well and fill the tin right to the rim. Run a spatula around the edge of the tin, this will help you get an even rise. Cover the tin with a large upturned bowl or loosely cover with lightly oiled cling film. Leave to prove in a warm place for 40 minutes. Don’t worry, it won’t rise much. That bit happens later.
Now you’re ready for the oven. Place the tin on a tray in the centre of the COLD OVEN. Then turn to 190C or 165C for fan-assisted ovens, and bake for 90 minutes. It should be a dark golden brown on top when it’s done. Remove from the oven, carefully lift out of the tin and place on a cooling rack. For the best possible result, wait until completely cool before slicing.

Delicious Alchemy Chocolate Brownie Mix
Delicious Alchemy's gluten free brownie's really do satsify that sweet tooth. See how to make them below:
1 x 400g Delicious Alchemy chocolate brownie mix
100g unsalted butter or dairy free alternative
2 large eggs
Preheat the oven to 180C /160C fan. Line the base and sides of a 20cm (8 inch) square tin with greaseproof paper. Make sure the paper sticks out 2.5cm (about an inch) above the rim of the tin.
Add the brownie mix to a bowl. Melt the butter (or dairy free alternative) and pour this over the brownie mix and stir until the mix is starting to form a batter. Lightly beat the eggs, add to the mix and stir together well. Spread the batter into the tin and smooth the top. Bake for 18-22 minutes.
When they’re done, leave them to cool in the tin for 20 minutes before lifting out and transferring to a cooling rack. Use the paper to help you. Leave to cool completely before slicing.
