1000 Gluten Free Recipes - Carole Fenster

2 posts in this topic

So a week ago I bought 1000 Gluten Free Recipes by Carole Fenster for my tablet. I was curious and it was an experiment to see if I liked cookbooks on my tablet rather than in paper format.

I discovered that I hate cookbooks as ebooks but this is a great cookbook.

I have made:

Cinnamon Raisin Bread (twice)

Oatmeal Bread

Granola with Dried Fruit

Lemon Poppyseed Muffins

Chocolate Chip Cookies

Chocolate Cherry Coconut Cookies

Double Chocolate Cookies

Lemon Poppyseed Scones with Lemon Glaze

The Oatmeal Bread collapsed on itself but that was my fault for massively over-rising it, it still tasted good and we ate it all.

Other than that one mistake everything has been wonderful. The Lemon Poppyseed Scones are really great. I made them today and they are almost gone. I will be making another batch this evening to have in the freezer for coffee dates.

I was a bit apprehensive about buying the book since many of the recipes call for Expandex which is a modified tapioca starch that is nearly impossible to get in Canada unless you want to pay a fortune to have it redirected across the border by a 3rd party shipping company. I made the muffins without it and they were great. I have also just subbed xanthan gum in the recipes which call for both xanthan gum and guar gum and haven't noticed any problems.

If you are looking for a cookbook, this one gets a great review from me. (As I sit here munching on my Lemon Scone)

Oh, and a huge bonus for me is that she uses almost no rice flour in the cookbook. Her basic blend is Tapioca, Sorghum and Corn or Potato starch (whichever you prefer) I use Corn starch as it is cheaper. I am thrilled since my niece is allergic to rice and oats and I have an awful time trying to bake for a family gathering. Now I have a whole bunch of great recipes that are gluten/rice/oat free.
