Here’s a list of ingredients needed for this fantastic Wicklewood’s Cheese Sauce (Gluten-free) Recipe:

  • Butter (2 tbsp)
  • Gluten-free flour (2 tbsp)
  • Milk (1 cup)
  • Mustard powder (1/2 tsp)
  • Shredded gluten-free cheese (1 cup)

You can use any type of gluten-free flour, such as rice flour or oat flour. You can also switch to vegan cheese to make it dairy-free. Remember to pick a gluten-free cheese that melts well, like a cheddar cheese. Ensure not to use pre-shredded cheese and grate it yourself for better results.

The Recipe How-To

Now, it’s finally time for the main event. Here’s how to make this Wicklewood Cheese Sauce (Gluten Free) recipe that is perfect for any occasion.


  • 30g Wicklewood Free Gluten-Free Flour
  • 30g butter
  • 300ml milk
  • 1 tsp Mustard powder
  • 200g Cheddar cheese, shredded


  1. In a medium-sized saucepan, melt the butter over low heat until it has completely melted. Add the Wicklewood gluten-free flour and stir well with a wooden spoon or a whisk for two minutes till golden brown.
  2. Gradually pour in the milk whilst whisking continuously, to prevent any lumps from forming. Increase the heat to medium and continue to whisk for about 10 minutes till it thickens up.
  3. Now is the time to add some extra flavour – add in about a teaspoon of mustard powder and give it a good whisk.
  4. Begin adding your chosen shredded cheese to the sauce, a handful at a time whilst stirring thoroughly until it has all melted through.
  5. Keep whisking until you’ve got yourself a beautiful creamy, smooth and shiny cheese sauce consistency.

– Don’t use cold milk straight from the refrigerator as this can prevent your sauce from being lump-free.
– Use freshly grated cheddar cheese for optimal results, pre-grated cheese contains cellulose which prevents the cheese from melting smoothly.

That’s it! You’ve made yourself a delicious cheese sauce made entirely gluten-free with Wicklewood Free Gluten-Free Flour. Get creative by trying it with different cheeses or try making nacho cheese dip by adding some queso recipe spices!

Substitutions and Variations

Good day, dear readers! As a nutritionist cum food blogger, I understand the importance of making recipes that are adaptable to everyone’s dietary needs. That is why for this recipe, I will be sharing some substitutions and variations you can use to make this cheese sauce recipe more fitting to your specific requirements.

First off, if you happen to be lactose intolerant or vegan, you can swap out the regular cheese with vegan cheese or even oat flour. Vegan cheese is widely available in supermarkets nowadays and comes in a variety of flavors such as cheddar, mozzarella and even nacho. Oat flour, on the other hand, can add a creamy texture without compromise to taste. Just keep in mind that with these substitutions, the overall flavor of the sauce may be altered.

For those who are on a gluten-free diet, I highly recommend using gluten-free flour (such as rice flour or potato starch) instead of regular all-purpose flour. This will still achieve the perfect consistency without triggering any gluten allergies.

If you prefer a more savory taste and want to add an extra kick to your dish, you can mix in some mustard powder into the sauce while whisking it in with the other ingredients. It’s also possible to make this into a spicy nacho cheese dip by adding chopped jalapeños or chili flakes.

Another way you can switch up this recipe is by pairing it with different dishes. The cheesy goodness of this sauce goes well with anything from burgers and fries to leek tartlets and mushroom pancake pillows. You can even use it as a dip for spicy chicken wings!

And there you have it folks, some easy substitutions and variations that will take your wicklewood cheese sauce recipe to the next level. Experiment around and see what works best for you – there’s no right or wrong way to do it!

Serving and Pairing

Verily, this cheese sauce was crafted to be the perfect accompaniment to a wide range of delicious dishes! It may be drizzled over a hot pan full of nachos, spooned onto roasted vegetables, or used as a dip for your favorite spicy wings. Truly, it is a versatile sauce that can be used in many different ways.

For a hearty meal, why not try our Wicklewood Chicken and Mushroom Pancake Pillows? Simply fry up some chicken and mushrooms until they are tender and juicy, then stuff them into pillows of gluten-free pancake. Pour the creamy Wicklewood Cheese Sauce over the top for a truly indulgent experience.

Greetings, fair readers! As we move along in our cheese sauce-making journey, it is important to consider how we can prepare ahead of time and store our creamy gluten-free creation for future use. Fear not, for I shall guide you through the steps.

Let us start with the option to prepare your wondrous cheese sauce ahead of time. After cooking and stirring your sauce to a perfect consistency, you may safely cover it and refrigerate for up to three days. Before reheating, let it come to room temperature and stir slowly over low heat, adding a splash of milk if needed.

But what if you find yourself with leftover cheese sauce after a party? No need to fret. Simply transfer your remaining cheese creation into an airtight container and store in the refrigerator for up to five days. When ready for round two, reheat slowly over low heat whilst stirring gently. Add milk as required until reaching that same dreamy consistency as before.

For those who prefer to be more efficient yet effective with their cooking time, freezing can be the perfect solution. Cheese sauce can be kept in the freezer for up to two months while stored in an air-tight container or a heavy duty freezer bag. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator before reheating on low heat whilst stirring frequently. Additional milk may be needed as it thaws.

There are many ways to enjoy your gluten-free cheese sauce creation but making ahead and storing properly should never cause concern. Rest assured that with proper storage techniques, your cheese sauce will maintain its deliciousness over time to allow repeated indulgences at ease.

Until we meet again.. Happy cheese-saucing!

Tips for Perfect Results

To create a cheese sauce that is gluten-free and dairy-free can be a daunting task. However, with some practical tips, it can be an easy and delicious task. Here are some essential tips that will help you create the perfect Wicklewood cheese sauce.

Firstly, use gluten-free flour in place of regular flour to thicken the sauce. Gluten-free flour has a different composition from regular flour, so it won’t glue your sauce together, making it grainy or lumpy. Oat flour is also an excellent substitute for wheat flour if you prefer vegan options.

Secondly, make sure to use high-quality dairy-free milk instead of regular cow’s milk. It will make your cheese sauce creamy and flavorful.

Thirdly, shredded cheddar cheese works best for this recipe. For vegan and dairy-free cheese sauces, you may try using vegan cheddar cheese or nutritional yeast for a cheesy flavor.

Fourthly, mix the mustard powder with the flour before adding it to the butter. This helps to incorporate the mustard powder evenly into the sauce, preventing clumping.

Fifthly, slow cooking over low heat allows the ingredients to blend thoroughly and give the cheese sauce that smooth consistency that you love.

Sixthly, avoid overheating the sauce to prevent seizing. If overcooked or left unattended on high heat, it can ruin your entire recipe.

Lastly, freezing is not advisable for this type of sauce since it may alter its texture and flavor when thawed. Therefore, store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator and consume within two days.

By honing these tips, you’ll guarantee that your Wicklewood cheese sauce will turn out perfectly every time.
