In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease. In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
This recipe comes to us from Nancy Garniez.
Preheat oven to 425F.
¼ cup bean flour (I use mung bean, but you can also use lentil, chickpea or a mixture of two or three--be creative!)
¼ cup rice flour
½ cup equal parts arrowroot (I dont eat corn, but cornstarch would do as well), potato starch, and rice bran
½ teaspoon xanthan gum
2 teaspoons baking powder
¼ teaspoon salt
Mix the flour above with 1 ½ tablespoons of margarine or butter until small pea-like lumps form (you dont have to be too careful about this step, especially if the margarine is soft). Beat in 1 egg, ½ teaspoon vanilla, 2 tablespoons of milk or water. Mix to form a fairly thick dough. Put into a buttered square or round dish or pie plate. Top with sliced fruit: Plums, peaches, etc, densely covering the dough. Sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Dot the top with bits of margarine or butter and bake for 25 minutes.
