RECIPES:

Gluten Free Carrot Cake Recipe

I really needed a smaller size carrot cake, as my famous Gluten Free Carrot Cake Recipe is a bit too much for us lately. Using a 9-inch round pan versus an 8-inch makes for a lower cake, which fools us psychologically into thinking we're still having a large piece. The main thing I changed in this new gluten free carrot cake recipe is making a smaller batter and making it moister and spicier. There was a bit too many crumbs on the recipe in the above link. This time, it's perfect. A matter of fact, it is so good, you don't even need frosting. It's plenty of sweet and extremely moist. I used lots of ground cloves which I really enjoy and I think you will, as well. It tastes closer to pumpkin bread. If pumpkin spices are not your cup of tea, omit the cloves. Enjoy!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Roulade - Roll Cake

One of my Facebook followers recently asked me for a gluten free pumpkin roll recipe. Last year, I developed a recipe for one of my clients, but I don't have the copyrights to that recipe. Therefore, here is a new one. I hope you enjoy it. I adapted and converted Trisha Yearwood's wheat flour pumpkin roll recipe on Food Network.

Image: Gluten Free Pie Crust with Peach Filling

Many of my Facebook followers have requested that I develop a gluten free pie crust recipe that does not call for superfine rice flour. This one turned out flakier than any other pie crust on this site. I have used it to make mini gluten free chicken pot pies as well as a gluten free peach pie. They both turned out delicious. You will find that refrigerating the dough once rolled makes transferring the rolled out dough to the pie much easier. I have included that tip as well as another below for ease in transferring the dough. Meanwhile, I hope you enjoy this recipe for many of your savory and sweet gluten free pies.

Image: Gluten Free Carrot Cake

I have only attempted to create a gluten free carrot cake recipe once before, and it had turned out way too heavy. Not this one! It is perfect, now that I have created the perfect gluten free self-rising cake flour blend. It has been working cup for cup in most of my cake recipes. This gluten free carrot cake is of medium weight. If you like a heavier cake, just add an additional 1/4 cup cooking oil. I hadn't had any carrot cake in years, and I can only tell you that I was in heaven! All of my readers, family and friends state that this is the best carrot cake they've ever had. Enjoy! (See additional photos below.)

Gluten Free Pumpkin Cornbread

Though I am allergic to pumpkin, whenever I get the craving for it, I create a new recipe and have my husband taste-test it. I have never had pumpkin cornbread before, but it sounded so good. To create this recipe, I began with my Gluten Free Cornbread for Stuffing and simply substituted the milk with pumpkin puree. My husband gobbled up a piece of this gluten free pumpkin cornbread and asked for more. He didn't realize it was cornbread at first. Once he had a piece topped with his usual margarine, he said it was moist, with a typical cornbread flavor and texture, with a slight taste of pumpkin. Without the butter on top, he said it was a bit dry, like regular cornbread. He loved it, as I hope you will.

Image: Pecan Gluten Free Pie Crust

Why go through all of the trouble of making and rolling dough to make gluten free pie crust recipe? Make this pecan gluten free pie crust recipe instead. It's easy and extremely flavorful with its pumpkin spices. For non-pumpkin pies, omit the ginger and cloves, and just use the cinnamon. For chocolate fillings, skip all of the spices and replace them with cocoa powder. This crust is perfect for dairy-free dieters, as well. Enjoy!

Moist Gluten Free Cornbread

Last year I had a request for a good gluten free cornbread stuffing recipe, but I hadn't created a gluten free cornbread recipe, and never got around to it. So, this year, it is my top priority. Once you have a good gluten free cornbread recipe you can make any stuffing recipe you choose using that gluten free cornbread. Preferably it should be a soft, absorbable one. This recipe is more of a cake-style cornbread recipe, however, you can adjust it to create a more traditional gluten free cornbread for stuffing.

I love the dessert version. I think my hubby's favorite foods are stuffing and cornbread, and he was in heaven with this gluten free corn bread recipe this morning, and he's not 100% gluten free! With the adjustments above, hubby says it tastes just like cornbread. Enjoy!

Image: Fluffy Gluten Free Cinnamon Rolls

I had posted a gluten free cinnamon rolls recipe a couple of years ago, and have been trying to make a fluffy version ever since. I tried about 4 or 5 different methods, none of which worked well. I had been under the impression from a cookbook that I had read early on that rising gluten free dough twice is senseless. Well, I learned that this statement was not true. A second rise for cinnamon roll dough is the key to making them fluffy or lighter. I plan on experimenting with this recipe by using my Gluten Free All Purposed Flour Blend next. When I do, I'll update this recipe. I hope you enjoy it.

Whole Grain Gluten Free Dinner Rolls

While my Soft Gluten Free Dinner Rolls Recipe has been a huge success for quite some now, I thought I would share a healthier version made with sorghum flour (or brown rice flour). I have a similar version of this recipe using slightly different ingredients at Soft Gluten Free Buttermilk Dinner Rolls Recipe. However, this recipe is my favorite. It's not super light like the soft dinner rolls. They just have more structure and taste creamier. They're one of my husband's favorites. He says he enjoys the flavor and texture, but more importantly, he has a nice place to slightly slit them open to add his peanut butter. He toasts them, but rewarming in the microwave brings them back to a fresh baked state. I hope you enjoy them, as well.
