Hi All,
Does anyone have any gluten free(gluten is found in wheat,rye,and barley) baking recipes? I have only found one on this site and it is for a pie crust. I was hoping to find cookies,cakes,and such. Not that I don't appreciate the pie crust with Thanksgiving on the way it will help out lots. Is there any chance Nestle will post more gluten free recipes? I love to bake and am now having to learn how to bake without wheat flour.

I just found on one of the other forums a recipe for a nut, and coconut pie crust. They sound very yummy and I will be trying them out this week. Thank you ladies for posting them.

I just saw that the woman that does the " The Cake Doctor"cookbooks, Anne Byrn has a new one out.  It uses the gluten free cake mixes that are currently on the market.  So if you are looking to give a gift for Christmas I think a gift of the book and 2 of the mixes, a chocolate and a yellow would be a great start.

Hi!



These cookies are open to your own imaginative interpretation. Try butterscotch chips and toasted salted pecans, or white chocolate and cranberries, in place of the chocolate chips.

  • 8 ounces butter
  • 7 1/2 ounces brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 3 1/2 ounces granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • 12 1/4 ounces King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour or 10 1/2 ounces brown rice flour blend*
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 12 ounces chocolate chips
  • 7 1/2 ounces chopped nuts, optional
  • *See recipe for this blend below.

Directions

1) Beat the butter, sugars, vanilla and salt till fluffy.

2) Beat in the eggs one at a time, being sure to scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl midway through to make sure everything is well combined.

3) Whisk together the flour or flour blend, xanthan gum, baking powder, and baking soda.

4) Beat the dry ingredients into the butter mixture, then blend in the chocolate chips and nuts. Again, scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl to be sure everything is well blended.

5) Cover the bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour, or for up to 2 days.

6) Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a couple of baking sheets, or line with parchment.

7) Scoop tablespoon-sized balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets; a tablespoon cookie scoop works well here. Leave space between the cookies so they can spread.

8) Bake the cookies for 9 to 11 minutes, until golden brown. Remove from the oven and let rest on the baking sheets for 5 minutes, to set, before transferring to racks to cool completely. Or allow them to cool right on the baking sheets.

Yield: 3 dozen cookies

*Make your own blend
Many of our gluten-free recipes use our King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour, which includes ingredients that reduce the grittiness sometimes found in gluten-free baked goods. Our flour also increases the shelf life of your treats, keeping them fresh longer. 

The following make-at-home blend, featuring stabilized brown rice flour, works pretty well when substituted; and it tastes better than a blend using regular brown rice flour. 

Whisk together 6 cups (32 ounces) King Arthur stabilized brown rice flour; 2 cups (10 3/4 ounces) potato starch; and 1 cup (4 ounces) tapioca flour or tapioca starch. Store airtight at room temperature. Note: You can substitute white rice flour for the brown rice flour if you like; it'll make your baked goods grittier (unless you manage to find a finely ground version).

Recipe summary

Hands-on time:
12 mins. to 17 mins.
Baking time:
9 mins. to 11 mins.
Total time:
1 hrs 30 mins. to 2 days 33 mins.
Yield:
3 dozen cookies

Tips from our bakers

  • The cookie dough needs to be refrigerated for at least 1 hour before baking (or for up to 2 days), so plan accordingly. Dough may be scooped into balls, wrapped well, and frozen for up to several months. For hot homemade cookies, FAST, simply place frozen dough balls on a baking sheet, and bake for a minute or so longer than the directions indicate.
  • These cookies stay nice and fresh for a day or so after baking. Freeze for longer storage.
  • To make sure your oven temperature is exactly right, bake a sample cookie first. If the cookie spreads too much, raise the oven temperature slightly. If it doesn't spread enough, lower the oven temperature slightly, or pat the dough down slightly before baking.

HI!
this is from kingarthurflour.com 
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar; Baker's Special Sugar or superfine sugar, if you have it
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup (2 1/2 ounces) Dutch-process cocoa or natural cocoa; we prefer the flavor of Dutch-process ("European-style")
  • 3 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour or brown rice flour blend*
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup chocolate chips, optional
  • 1 cup chopped nuts, optional
  • *See recipe for this blend below.

Directions

1) Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease an 8" square pan or 9" round pan; either should be at least 2" deep.

2) Place the sugar, butter, and salt in a microwave-safe bowl or saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring with a heatproof spatula until the butter melts and the mixture lightens in color. This step helps melt the sugar, which will give the brownies a shiny crust.

3) If you've heated the sugar and butter in a saucepan, transfer the mixture to a bowl; otherwise, just leave the hot ingredients right in their microwave-safe bowl; or transfer them to your stand mixer bowl, if desired. Blend in the vanilla and cocoa, then add the eggs and mix until shiny.

4) Blend in the flour or flour blend and the baking powder. Stir in the chips and/or nuts, if you're using them.

5) Pour the batter into the prepared pan, spreading it to the edges.

6) Bake the brownies for 33 to 38 minutes, until the top is set; and a cake tester or toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean or nearly so, with perhaps a few wet crumbs, or a tiny touch of chocolate at the tip of the tester.

7) Remove from the oven and cool for about 15 minutes before cutting. Once the brownies are cool, cover tightly with plastic.

Yield: 16 brownies.

*Make your own blend
Many of our gluten-free recipes use our King Arthur Gluten-Free Multi-Purpose Flour, which includes ingredients that reduce the grittiness sometimes found in gluten-free baked goods. Our flour also increases the shelf life of your treats, keeping them fresh longer.

Store airtight at room temperature. Note: You can substitute white rice flour for the brown rice flour if you like; it'll make your baked goods grittier (unless you manage to find a finely ground version).

Recipe summary

Hands-on time:
20 mins. to 22 mins.
Baking time:
33 mins. to 38 mins.
Total time:
53 mins. to 60 mins.
Yield:
16 brownies

Tips from our bakers

  • Can you dig in to these brownies immediately? Of course. You can't slice them, but you can certainly sample with a spoon. For easiest slicing, wait at least 15 minutes before serving. And for prettiest (crumb-free) servings, wait till brownies are completely cool before cutting.
  • What's the difference in baking time using a metal vs. glass vs. stoneware pan? We noticed very little difference in our side-by-side test; the brownies in a thick stoneware pan needed about 1 additional minute in the oven, but the brownies in the medium-gray (not dark) metal pan, and in glass, baked for the same amount of time. If you're using a dark metal pan, or one that you know bakes faster or slower than your recipe usually indicates, adjust the baking time for these brownies accordingly.

My daughter-in-law was diagnosed with celiac disease so we have had to change a lot of our former favorites.
One helpful site is www.bobsredmill.com They have many gluten free products and I have found their products in our local stores.
before I found them locally, I ordered from the company.  Their service was prompt and good.
When she was first diagnosed we had quite a scramble to find recipes and products.  It is getting much better lately in our area.
Good luck and happy eating.

Thanks for the info everyone.  I had no idea there was a gluten-free flour out now although I have seen some of the Betty Crocker baking mixes. 

Always good to know since so many people have a wheat intolerance lately.

If you make a flour less chocolate cake many directions will have you dust the pan with flour.  In place of using flour to dust the pan use cocoa powder.  Not only does it keep the recipe gluten free you don't end up with a white coating on a chocolate cake when you remove it from the pan.

http://www.kingarthurflour has many gluten free recipes and they also have gluten free products.
I like Bob's Red Mill products and they also have quite a few gluten free products.

All Recipes also has quite a few gluten free recipes.
