Whichever topping you prefer, I’ve got a list of my favorite gluten free frosting recipes for you to try, plus tons of info about how to prepare them, so they turn out better than anything you can buy at the store.

Is cake frosting gluten free?

Considering how often gluten appears in prepackaged foods, you’re right to wonder if canned frosting is gluten free.

And you may be surprised to learn that many store-bought frostings are indeed gluten free.

Those varieties that aren’t gluten free typically contain gluten due to the use of wheat flour or even wheat starch. And some brands may not use any gluten-containing ingredients, but they won’t label their products as gluten free because they may be manufactured … Read more

This creamy, classic gluten free cheesecake is anything but plain

This classic gluten free cheesecake is technically a “plain” cheesecake, but the taste and texture make it anything but plain. It’s smooth and silky, and each bite tastes light and creamy.

It’s just rich enough and sweet without being overwhelming. If you’d like to turn up the vanilla flavor, you can use vanilla bean paste (I really like Nielsen-Massey brand) in place of pure vanilla extract. The seeds of a vanilla bean never hurt, if you happen to have some of those on hand.

If you like lemon flavoring in your cheesecake, I recommend adding 1 tablespoon of finely grated lemon zest and replacing half of the vanilla extract with freshly-squeezed … Read more

Banana bonanza (too much?)

My one bowl gluten free banana bread recipe is easily one of my favorite recipes in the history of ever. Whenever we talk about it on Facebook, so many of you say (sometimes as a sort of confession, but there’s no shame needed here!) that you make that banana bread once a week—at least!

We eat a lot of bananas in my house. Well, with 3 teenagers, we eat a lot of everything in my house!

But about a year ago, I finally got a little hook that sticks on to the underside of a kitchen cabinet to hold bananas, so they don’t ripen unevenly. It even folds up and out of … Read more
