Gluten Free Frostings

Recommended Posts

I remembered previously someone was looking for gluten-free frosting. All Pillsbury frosting is gluten free except coconut pecan. I have read conflicting things about Duncan Hines. All their CREAMY frosting is gluten free except butter cream and coconut pecan. None of their whipped frosting is gluten-free.

Happy Baking! :)

Thanks for the info on the frostings. They are so much easier than making it from scratch.

Are you kidding? :blink: Or maybe you don't have an electric mixer?

If you have an electric mixer (stand mixer is best), it takes all of three minutes and 4 ingredients:

1 stick of unsalted butter (room temperature)

3 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted (I often skip the sifting and it's fine)

3-4 tablespoons milk (cream is even yummier!)

2 teaspoons vanilla extract.

Beat butter by itself 30 seconds til fluffy, add everything, mix on low til sugar is incorporated (1 minute), beat 1 more minute on medium. DONE.

You can add 1 more tablespoon milk if it's too stiff.

For chocolate frosting, decrease sugar to 3 cups, and add 1/2-2/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder and a pinch of salt.

If you forget to take your butter out of the fridge, you can defrost it in the microwave on the defrost setting for 30-60 seconds.

And homemade TASTES so much better than the cans, which have a very strong rancid shortening odor to my nose and a strong chemical taste to boot.

I wish I could e-mail you some good homemade frosting!!!! :P

Thanks for posting on the frosting. Good info to know. I don't have a mixer, I am not the best baker in the world, but Fiddle-Faddle that recipe you posted sounds very tasty. Thank You!

Dear JennyC,

Thank you so much for posting this! I was wondering if any would be safe! Sometimes I do not have time to make them from scratch, or I am out of bowls. We could not afford to buy all new stuff, so I have a very limited selection of pans right now! I have one mixing bowl, a cookie sheet, a wok, and a saucepan. That is all, aside from a wooden spatula, a wooden spoon, and another wooden spoon (all of which were new and only used for gluten-free cooking.)

Dear Alison,

Thank you for the recipe! I would love to try that soon! I have not had a lot of time for special baking lately. I would love to attempt a french bread! The problem is, I cannot use yeast either. This is going to be tricky.

Sincerely,

NoGluGirl
