22 posts in this topic

Hi All, I have been searching for a good blueberry muffin recipe. I can't believe I didn't think to post here and ask all you fabulous bakers.

I want to be able to freeze them after they are cooked for quick breakfast in the morning.

Thank you in advance!

Kristi

I haven't tried many recipes but I tried this today and it was very good.

http://www.food.com/recipe/gluten-free-cornmeal-muffins-210235

I made some modifications because of allergies:

rice milk

1 Tb less sugar because I like not overly sweet and the rice milk already has some sugar in it-so 7 Tb. of sugar.

I didn't have a blend on hand so made up just enough for the recipe based on a link the recipe poster provided. I modified the blend because I have both tapioca and potato allergies.

Blend:

2/3 c. white rice flour

1/4 c. plus 2 Tb. cornstarch

2 Tb. mochiko-sweet rice flour-glutinous rice flour

And I added blueberries.

Blueberry Muffin Recipe from Gluten Free Baking Classics by Annalise Roberts (hope it is OK to do this)

First you have to mix up her flour blend: 2 cups brown rice flour (very fine...or white rice flour works too), 2/3 cup Potato Starch, and 1/3 cup Tapioca Flour

2 cups of the flour mix

2/3 cups sugar

1 tablespoon baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

3/4 tsp Xanthan Gum

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1 cup blueberries

1/2 cup milk

1/2 canola oil

2 large eggs

1/2 tsp vanilla

Preheat oven to 375*. Grease muffin pan with cooking spray.

Mix dry ingredients together in large bowl. Add blueberries, stir to coat evenly.

Combine milk & oil in a small bowl, remove 1 tablespoon of the combined liquid and discard. Beat in eggs & vanilla. Stir until just blended.

Spoon into muffin pans. The recipe says to bake 18-25 minutes, but mine were done at 16. My oven is spot on, too.

I like to experiment and the last time I made them I used 1 1/2 cups of the flour blend and 1/2 of almond flour. Almond flour is expensive, but I think the texture was much better. And a bag of almond flour will last quite a while if you only use 1/2 cup in a recipe. :)

Blueberry Muffins

1 1/2 cups gluten free flour blend (I actually use 1 cup plus 1/2 cup Pamela's baking mix)

3/4 cup white sugar

1/2 teas salt

1 teas baking powder

1 teas baking soda

1/2 teas xanthan gum (If not using Pamela's above then up quantity to 3/4 teas)

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 egg (lightly beaten)

1/2 cup milk

1 cup blueberries (I use the frozen wild blue berries - their small)

Crumb topping

1/2 cup white sugar

1/3 cup gluten free flour blend

1/4 cup butter (softened but not melted)

Preheat oven to 400 deg F. Grease muffin cups or line with muffin liners.

Combine all dry ingredients. Mix in all wet ingredients. This was an adaptation of a former gluten recipe. If the batter is too thick, add more milk (It should be batter, not dough - about the consistency of what you would think gluten muffin batter should be). Fold in blueberries. Fill muffin cups about 3/4 full and sprinkle with crumb mixture.

Crumb mixture: Mix together sugar, flour, and butter until crumbly. (You don't need this much topping. I make less but keep about those proportions . . . it's forgiving, no need for exact measurements here)

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in oven or until done. (I use the toothpick method to check.)

Also, this is my baseline muffin recipe. If I make banana, I take out the blueberries and use 1 to 2 mashed ripe bananas (no crumb topping but sometimes some chopped pecans or walnuts mixed in or on top). Will also mix in chocolate chips with these.

I will take some cinnamon and sugar and fold that into the batter so that it's kinda swirly for Cinnamon muffins. I do use the crumb topping for those.

This is adapted from my grandmother's recipe.

Sour Cream Blueberry Cake

Cream together 1/2 c butter and 1 c sugar. Add 3 eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Sift together:

2 c sifted flour (I use Bette Hagman's original blend, but any white rice/tapioca/cornstarch or similar flour should work)

1 t baking powder

1 t baking soda

1/2 t salt

1 t xanthan gum

Add the dry ingredients to the egg-sugar-butter in several batches, alternating with 1 c of sour cream, ending with flour.

Stir in 1 t vanilla extract. Fold in blueberries, about 1-1/2 cups fresh or canned. If fresh, toss them with a little flour first, to prevent them sinking to the bottom.

Spoon into cupcake papers. Bake at 400 for 15 - 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. You could also put this in a 9 x 9 pan and bake for about 55 min. Either way, cool it and freeze cupcakes or pieces of cake.

I also like Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix for muffins. They do contain dairy though so don't know if you can tolerate it or not.

No you are NOT stupid...and age-wise, I have you beat by a long shot!!! laugh.gif

BTW, I've also made her pumpkin bread recipe but skip the crumble-nut topping as it's impossible to cut the bread. But it might be good on muffin-top muffins. smile.gif

I have NEVER had a bad result using and following King Arthurs gluten-free flours and recipes. If it's available to you try it.

    • As a GI specialty nurse who also has celiac I can tell you that it can not be diagnosed by CT and rarely unless you have severe disease can it be diagnosed by colonoscopy.  Those that have had it diagnosed by colonoscopy have such because their MDs were above to get into the small bowel from the bottom and take biopsys.  Celiac damage is not seen in the large intestine.  Also many people do not have diarrhea, many have constipation or a 50/50 mix between the two.  Celiac has 300 connected symptoms and sometimes no symptoms at all.  It's called the " great pretender" because of this.
    • Okay, thanks! I am 24 but my husband and I don't plan on having kids. However, the more I thought about it, the more I think I should get one for my brother's sake. Especially after my doctor's office called this evening to say my bloodwork tested positive for Celiac. Guess I will be on this forum longer than I thought!
    • You just got diagnosed Celiac and are wondering how serious this really is. What if there is just a little gluten in your food? What if you use the same toaster for your gluten-free bread as your wife's/husband's regular bread? What if those french fries are gluten-free but they fry them in the same fryer as those nice gluten coated onion rings? View the full article
    • Hi, I've never been on a forum before but thought I might find some answers here.  I have never been tested for celiac but a nurse practitioner I saw a few years ago told me she thought I would benefit from a gluten free diet.  At first, I thought I could never do this but after some encouragement I did try.  I did feel much better after going gluten free.  She never tested me for celiac. I turned 50 years old last year and I had a colonoscopy for the first time and had three polyps removed.  The surgeon said that my colon looked like I was a chronic laxative user.  I haven't used a laxative for a very long time.  I was at the time drinking a natural tea to help me to have bowel movements.  Before starting the tea I had always had difficulty with bowel movements and never had them once a day but with the tea I was able to go once a day. At the end of last month I developed severe pain after I would eat (I had my gallbladder removed at the age of 19).  One night the pain got so bad my husband had to drive me to the ER.  My liver functions were high as well as a few other things.  They did a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis that showed wall thickening of my transverse colon and minimal irregularity involving the transverse colon.  My descending and sigmoid colon were collapsed.  There were a few tiny mesenteric lymph nodes present on the right.  They diagnosed me officially with colitis but said that most likely I had a gallstone (even though I don't have a gallbladder) that had come from the liver and had gotten stuck in the common bile duct (it did not show up on the CT scan).  I usually have a high ferritin level too.  I've been home from the hospital stay for about a month now and still have tenderness in the epigastric area. Some of this may not have anything to do with celiac but was wondering if anyone has been diagnosed with celiac by CT scan or colonoscopy or if anyone has had the same problems that I have had and found out what has caused it.  I cannot see the gastroenterologist who saw me in the hospital for a couple of months.  Can you have celiac and not have diarrhea as I am just the opposite? Any help would be appreciated!  Thanks!  
    • I had an acne flair up after going gluten free but it ended up improving and some long-term back acne I had been dealing with actually went away.  I think going gluten free was a shock to my system and at first I actually felt worse but after about a month things got better.
