Bob's Red Mill gluten-free Flour--Help Me Bake Something Sweet
0

11 posts in this topic

So, I picked up my first gluten-free flour at the store today, Bob's Red Mill.  Most of the gluten-free baking blogs I follow are very particular about which brand of flour to use with which recipe... and in looking them over, most like other products (Better Battter, King Arthur/Trader Joe's, Cup4Cup?)  better than Bob's. Bob's is mostly chickpeas as far as I can tell.

 

What something great you've made with it that I can feed my non-gluten-free family?

 

Brownies, cookies, muffins... what works best for this particular flour?

Here's a link for Chocolate Mayo Cake:

 

http://glutenfreegodseeker.blogspot.com/2013/01/judi-gluten-free-chocolate-mayonnaise.html

 

Make homemade buttercream frosting and your family might not know the difference.  

 

Be sure to sift the flour first.  It's dense and clumps.  I always add  Xanthan Gum about 1 tsp. as well.

 

My husband likes spice cake which masks the "gluten free" flour taste. 

 

Gluten Free Spice Cake

 

2 cups Gluten-Free Flour Mix (scant)
1 ½ cups sugar
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
¼ teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup buttermilk or sour milk
¼ cup margarine or butter, softened
¼ cup shortening
½ teaspoon vanilla
3 eggs

Walnuts & Raisins or chopped Apple

 

Added nuts and raisins to this recipe and baked as cupcakes.

 

Preheat oven to 350F. Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and ginger. Add buttermilk, margarine, shortening, and vanilla. Beat on low speed till combined then two minutes on high speed. Add eggs and beat two more minutes. Pour into a greased 9" x 13" baking pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean from the center. Cool on a wire rack.  Its also great made into cupcakes and then freeze the extras to pull out for lunches.

 

I always make cupcakes because they freeze so well!  Plus, portion control!!!!

 

Enjoy!

What else is on the package of Bob's?  Is it an AP blend?  I do a lot of baking and use many flours for different purposes.

My husband has been gluten-free for 12 years.  I'd bake his goodies and freeze them.  I bought Bob's as I used to be able to get it in bulk at my local Costco (alas, no more) and I have plenty of inventory (I've always kept my flour in the freezer).   Now, I have celiac disease, so once I use up my supply, I'd like to try other flours.  I do have a friend who's a baker and can get anything in bulk, but huge supplies of individual flours may be too much!  

 

I've made cobblers, muffins, and cookies.  With Bob's flour, plain cake/cookies are not best.  It's better to add flavors (e.g. spices) to hide the flour's flavor.  Maybe I won't know (or remember) eventually!  

 

Bought some Oreo type gluten-free cookies yesterday at Trader Joe's.  I'm going to crush the whole cookie and melted butter and line a spring form pan with them then layer with raspberry sherbet, crumbled gluten-free brownies & chocolate truffle sauce, and then vanilla ice cream for Father's Day!  Yum!  My guests will never suspect that's it's gluten-free!  (Ah, they will, since my hubby will be eating it (I've always been intolerant to milk).  

 

Maybe a flourless chocolate cake too!

I find the Bob's Red Mill all purpose flour makes a really good banana bread or zucchini bread ( it is that time of year). Just don't forget the xanthan gum, 1 teaspoon should do.

Thanks! These both sound delicious!  I bought some xanthan gum too.

Yes, it's supposed to be.  Called Gluten-Free All Purpose Baking Flour.  Ingredients are garbanzo bean flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, white sorghum flour, and fava bean flour.  Mmmmm...beany. :)

Trader Joe's has some wonderful products.  We bought the snickerdoodles and they didn't last two days. :)  I'll be sad if we move away from TJs.

Oh! That's a great idea. I have three bananas that would make some yummy banana bread.

 

Thanks everybody!

So, I made banana nut muffins using a recipe for banana nut bread from the BRM website with the flour and everybody loved it.  Nobody knew it was gluten-free even.  

 

Thanks everybody for the help.
