“I am loving this cookbook. It is so clearly written and the directions are very precise. It is fantastic to be able to make bread again – and it is delicious. I love the options for flour – you can make your own flour for the best results or you can buy a GF flour. Definitely give the homemade flour a try at some point. I can’t wait to try other recipes but right now I am focused on making bread.”

A Good Start
A coffee cake that feeds a crowd is perfect for Sunday brunches or holiday breakfasts. A classic streusel was too heavy for our cake—the high-starch gluten-free flour blend didn’t offer the same structure or stability of all-purpose flour—and it sank as it baked. Instead, we took a portion of the batter, added cinnamon and nutmeg, then swirled this spiced batter into the plain batter in the pan. For a topping, a simple glaze plus candied nuts added texture and visual appeal the cake needed.
Drunken Noodles with Chicken
Called drunken noodles because it is a supposed hangover cure, this dish features wide rice noodles in a spicy, potent sauce and lots of basil. We soaked wide rice noodles in hot water until they were just pliable so that we could finish cooking them in the sauce and infuse them with flavor.
In past experience with classic recipes, dipping the eggplant slices in flour, then egg, then bread crumbs had always delivered an even, crisp coating that stayed in place. We found replacing the flour with cornstarch worked equally well for a gluten-free version.
Cookies and Bars
Raspberry Streusel Bars
A raspberry streusel bar should have a sturdy, buttery shortbread-like base, a filling with bright raspberry flavor, and a rich streusel topping that lends texture and stays in place. For the base, we started with butter, our flour blend, and sugar (plus salt for a little flavor). By mixing pieces of softened butter into the dry ingredients using a stand mixer, we ensured the right fine crumb. The flavor was exactly what we wanted, but without gluten this base couldn’t support the topping. Adding just 1/4 teaspoon of xanthan gum gave the crust the structure it needed to hold up and slice neatly without crumbling.
