Why this is the best gluten free banana bread recipe

You know how the crumbs from a truly moist quick bread like banana bread can be picked up with the back of a fork? This is that gluten free banana bread.

The acid of the sour cream tenderizes the crumb of the bread. You can also use plain Greek yogurt instead, with very good results.

Sugar also tenderizes baked goods. In this recipe, that comes from the sugar added to the batter, but also from the ripest mashed bananas you can find.

The batter is stiffer than the batter for gluten free … Read more

The importance of gluten free zucchini recipes

Incredibly moist and tender gluten free zucchini bread, made with tons of summer’s pushiest vegetable. This is your new favorite zucchini recipe!

You can’t really taste the zucchini, so it’s a great recipe for hiding vegetables from the veg dodgers, and it’s got tonnes of chocolate chips. It’s also naturally dairy free as well as gluten free. What’s not to love?

When the zucchini plants start to flower, you know you’ve got to get your recipes ready if you hope to stay ahead of things. Or at least not falling miserably behind.

Like night follows day, it’s just the way things are. At least baking with zucchini is truly a pleasure (so much moisture!), and this chocolate chip gluten free zucchini … Read more

Classic Gluten Free Irish Soda Bread | Lightly Sweet

This gluten free Irish soda bread is a lightly sweet quick bread that tastes best slathered with some extra Irish butter. Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day, or any day, the way you remember.

What makes this lightly sweet gluten free Irish soda bread so special?

I first developed this recipe many years ago when my gluten free son, who is now considerably taller than I am (and I’m not short) was in the early years of grammar school. They were “celebrating” St. Patrick’s Day by sharing Irish soda bread.

Since he was already gluten free, and necessity is the mother of invention, I developed this recipe. I’ve been making it ever since—and when my son is feeling generous, he will remember the grammar school times to me.

Irish Soda Bread is a quick bread, not a yeast bread (although frankly I think it would make a fabulous yeast bread). And it’s … Read more

Mini Cheesecake Bites

Cheesecake bites are nothing more than little chocolate-covered morsels of creamy cheesecake. No special equipment and no water bath needed, since chocolate covers any cracks. SO good!

What makes these mini cheesecake bites recipe special?

These cheesecake bites aren’t made in miniature muffin tins, since that seems harder—and makes larger bites that are harder to dip in chocolate. Make a cheesecake in a square pan with the classic, creamy and perfect 8 ounces cream cheese-1/3 cup sugar-1 egg mixture, but add some cornstarch for stability. Then slice.

Most often, I go with a classic graham cracker cookie crust, but the combination of chocolate cookie made into a cookie crust and cheesecake is undeniably delicious. You can even go with no crust at all. Just bake the cake a wee bit longer to ensure that the cheesecake is stable enough to slice into bites.

Since these cheesecake bites are covered in … Read more

Gluten Free Banana Muffins

Moist, tender, and fluffy gluten free banana muffins in the classic style, made with plenty of mashed ripe bananas and buttermilk for the perfect texture.

Best of all, these are also easy gluten free muffins. As long as you have basic gf ingredients in the cupboard, and a few ripe bananas, you’ll only need one bowl and about 30 minutes to make them!

What makes these “the best” gluten free banana muffins?

The versatility and ease of this recipe are two of the key elements that make it so good. Their soft, tender texture and beautiful banana flavor make these one of the best gf muffins you’ll find.

And the recipe includes buttermilk, which tenderizes your gluten free banana muffins. But don’t get excited and try using buttermilk in my already-tender banana bread recipe – that much liquid would make the loaf cave in on itself during baking. For thatRead more
