In preparation for my development of a gluten free tiramisuĀ recipe, I thought I’d share my easy homemade espresso recipe with you. Espresso is rich, strong coffee which can be used in various coffee recipes such as cappuccino,Ā latte, and even pumpkin latte, which I provide instructions below. Why visit Starbucks when you can make your own espresso recipes right at home and have them all completely gluten free? Continue reading “Gluten Free Espresso Recipes and Flavored Lattes”

Gluten Free Halloween Cupcakes

When I make cupcakes I prefer to use natural frosting rather than artificial food coloring, though when I do use coloring, I use Select Tea’s natural food coloring for non-baked/heated food. In the gluten free Halloween cupcakes pictured, decorations were used for color, which can be used year after year. I’ve listed several links to different cupcake and cake recipe, along with frosting choices. Enjoy and be creative!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancakes

These gluten free pumpkin pancakes are perfect for this time of year, whether served in October or for a Thanksgiving breakfast or brunch. I always make my banana pancakes with white rice flour and no gum at all, but with the bananas, you do not taste any grittiness and these definitely needed a bit of xanthan or guar gum. When I used regular white rice flour in this gluten free pumpkin pancakes recipe, I did notice some grittiness. I suggest trying sorghum flour or oat flour instead. And because it contains no starches, superfine rice flours should work well, too.Ā Meanwhile, these were delicious anyway! Enjoy!

Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

This is my first attempt at creating a gluten free pumpkin bread. I used my gluten-free flour blend that I have used successfully on 3 other cakes now, however, the top center never would cook thoroughly, but was just as yummy. I was really afraid the rest would dry out if I cooked it much longer, but you’re welcome to give it a try.Ā I couldn’t wait until it cooled completely before I cut into it, which is no-no, but well worth it. This gluten free pumpkin bread is just as moist as my gluten free banana bread, and the best pumpkin bread recipe I’ve ever had gluten free, or not! Enjoy and let me know how yours turns out. I bet these would make perfect muffins. Continue reading “Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread”

Halloween is almost upon us and there are many parents who are looking for a gluten-free candy corn made in a facility without gluten and nuts. Can’t find one? Make your own! This recipe is an adaption of theĀ Best Allergy Sites’Ā Peanut Free Candy Corn ā€“ Egg Free Gluten-Free Candy Corn Recipe to also make it dairy-free. I substituted the butter and dry milk powder with other ingredients, and removed the vanilla. Candy corn doesn’t usually contain vanilla, and if you use a dark vanilla it will change the color of the candy. Hope you have some kids to help you make this fun gluten-free Halloween candy! I halved the recipe when I made it, as I had no help with mine. Have fun! Continue reading “Nut-Free Dairy-Free Egg-Free Gluten Free Candy Corn”
