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.

    • Is your concern the social aspects of eating on the job, or not always feeling well enough to get out the door? I'm in health care, and just happened to be in home care when I was diagnosed.  It actually works well, as I make my own hours, and can reschedule visits as need be. I would think you could complete your MBA easily, maybe part time if necessary.  It's not clear what your career path might be ....counseling?   Industrial psych? Research? Once you are established (and you can do that part time if need be, to start), you will have more options for flexed or reduced hours.  If the social aspects of eating are an issue, you can always excuse yourself at meals, drive to a pleasant location, and eat in your car. Or go for a walk and find a place to eat. For work luncheons,  I just have a beverage or pick up a piece of fruit, so I give the appearance of participating. 
    • Can you tolerate nut milks? I find macadamia milk the gentlest on my stomach. The only brand I've seen here in the US is Milkadamia, and it comes sweetened or not, and fortified with some vitamins. I think this brand is from Australia. Or you could make your own. As for time, it can take awhile, and that seems to be more the norm. A recent new dairy intolerance that peaked May 3 has made me sicker than celiac ever did. Almost 3 months later and I am just starting to get better and my fatigue is improving. I had the usual ups and downs, inadvertent exposures, and trial and error.  I had only mild symptoms (comparitively speaking) at my celiac diagnosis 4 years ago, yet it took 6 months to a year for them to fully resolve after going gluten-free. It's hard to be patient when your GI tract is off, as it makes you feel ill all over.  Just keep doing the right things, introduce new foods one at a time. I would also suggest more protein for weight issues ... can you tolerate tuna? Tuna and some version of mayo? Salmon, vitamin D supplements, and bone broth seemed to have helped me recently with gut healing. Wishing you well...  
    • Thank you for your response! Again I am pretty sure my doctor did all these checks however I will definitely check to make sure and take the necessary actions if not. It just feels like a never ending run of doctor appointments and blood tests at the moment and the whole thing really did come as a surprise to me. I think I have really tried to eat healthy as I believe its so important especially being diagnosed with this disease. I feel as though its not just about eliminating gluten but also having a really healthy and balanced lifestyle. Also, I find that at the moment it is not just gluten that upsets my stomach, fruit for some reason also does. Unfortunately, people do not realize this and dismiss it which can also be annoying on top of the diagnosis. I will definitely be avoiding processed foods and have been for the last few months. Thank you for your response and I will listen to my body as you have said, it is without doubt very important.
    • Is aroy d milk gluten free?I couldnt find an information on its package,it says it doesn't have any additives.It's full fat and sold in a bpa free carton box.Anyone tried it?
    • Thank you so much for your reply, it has really helped! Your feedback on the grieving side has really comforted me to know I am not the only one and that it will get better. I am not always upset and sometimes I feel optimistic but occasionally it really just does get overwhelming especially at the moment if I am eating in a restaurant for the first few times or out with friends and have to be concerned with what I can eat and not just concerned with having fun.  In relation to my diet I have seen a dietitian and got very positive feedback. I love cooking so this has been helpful with changing diet. But, I just find that I run out of recipes and am sometimes eating the same thing on repeat which is agitating. Unfortunately, I currently cannot eat lots of fruit as my stomach responds poorly to it so my dietitian has said to eat only one or two servings a day and build up. I definitely am going to research more recipes and snacks over the next month and really try to get my diet sorted so I can feel more relaxed and better. Thank you again your response it has helped massively just to know there are people out there who understand! Thank you.
