Gluten Free Pear Corn Muffins

Homemade Gluten Free Pear Corn Muffins
I saw another great dessert on Martha Stewart’s Show last week, Corn Muffins with Pear and Candied Ginger. Of course, I had to create a gluten free muffin recipe version. It does not call for superfine rice flour. The original recipe called for candied ginger which did not sound appealing to me, but I will …

Gluten Free Cream Puffs

I am half Italian and love my cream puffs, especially filled with custard. I grew up eating them from the historic Italian bakery in San Francisco, Victoria Pastry. Now I can have gluten free cream puffs and so can you. They are so delicious! You can always fill them with whipped cream or any favorite …

Gluten Free Custard Recipe for Cream Puffs, Creme Brulee and More!

Baked Custard

Custard is my favorite dessert next to ice cream and this one is my favorite, as it is a custard recipe for cream puffs! I also use it for creme brulee. It’s a great all-purpose gluten free custard, without the use of any flour. I created a Gluten Free Cream Puff Recipe yesterday upon the request of one of my readers and for my father who is visiting me. He’s Italian and cannot resist a cream puff, even a gluten free cream puff! A matter of fact, I had my best shaped cream puff on the table and had left the room. Upon returning, I found the cream puff in his mouth! I told him I was saving that one to fill and needed to take a picture of it. He said, “The damage is done!” and laughed! We both laughed. My father is 100% Italian and cream puffs are a delicacy. He loved that one but loved the ones I later filled even more. Being a connoisseur of cream puffs, he can attest to that this custard recipe for cream puffs is tops in his book! I hope you enjoy, as we both did!

Gluten Free Pastry Recipe: Apple or Desired Filling

Gluten Free Apple Pastry - Sugar Sprinkled
I like baking with red apples as it allows me to use less sugar in a recipe. I created a gluten free pastry recipe with red apples versus green. You can use any apples you desire and adjust the sugar content accordingly. I used my gluten free old cream puff shell recipe but made the shells …

Dairy Free Sherbet – Ice Cream – Mango and Almond

Dairy Free Mango Sherbet

This recipe is dairy free. I had a nice ripe mango waiting for me, but I was in the mood something more creamy. The raw almond milk ice cream that I made with avocado came out wonderful, but raw almond milk ice cream with mango is very refreshing and so healthy, too! I wasn’t sure to call it dairy free sherbet or ice cream, but it tastes great! Next time I am definitely skipping the sweetener and adding bananas!

Gluten Free Pound Cake

One of my Facebook friends requested a recipe for a gluten free pound cake. This recipe is my first attempt. I love pound cake and have not made one or tasted one in years. It rose perfectly. It turned out just a tad grainy (not as bad once it cools) because I had added 1/4 …

Gluten Free Maple Rice Pudding Recipe

Maple Sweetened Gluten Free Rice Pudding

I had quite a bit of leftover white rice and happened to see a restaurant featured on television that shared a portion of their ingredients for rice pudding except for one secret ingredient. And it is naturally gluten free. It looked as if it contained warm maple syrup; and the host of show said it tasted like french toast. I just had to try to make it. The original recipe did not use vanilla bean but I had to add some, as vanilla beans give it a wonderful flavor! I hope you enjoy this as much as I enjoyed creating, and consuming it.

Gluten Free Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache Topping Recipe

Gluten Free Cheesecake Ganache
It’s my hubby’s birthday, and he has requested a gluten free cheesecake. His favorite desserts are chocolate; therefore, I topped it with a chocolate topping (ganache), but it is optional. A cheesecake with a chocolate topping does not need to be very sweet. So, I cut back on the sugar in this cheesecake recipe. My …

Gluten Free Cranberry Coffee Cake Recipe from Namaste Mix

Gluten Free Coffee Cake

I was sent a couple of items from Namaste Foods to sample. The one I recently tried was their Biscuits, Pie Crust and More! Flour Blend which also makes dumplings, shortcake and coffee cake. The package had several recipes including an orange cranberry coffee cake recipe. Unfortunately, I am allergic to citrus and had to substitute the orange juice for applesauce and added more cinnamon (yum!) – very moist! I have included my recipe along with the recommended ingredients and instructions (see “versus…”). I recommend this mix, as it is close to Bisquick and I bet will make some very good recipes besides this one. I can’t wait to try the pie crust! The coffee cake rose beautifully, even with all of that heavy applesauce! This recipe is gluten-free, casein free, (egg-free if you use an egg substitute), and (nut free, if you skip the walnuts on top).
