Gluten-Free Elephant Ears?

We recently had a festival in town that came with elephant ears. My 6 year old son has had these before, and can no longer. Anybody have any idea as to how I would go about making these gluten-free or something similiar?

Thanks!

You could try cutting out pie crust dough and sprinkling with cinnamon sugar. Grandma used to do that with the scraps, then baked them on a baking sheet.

We use pie crust and sprinkle it generously with cinnamon and sugar. It's surprising how much it takes! ;) It's not quite like the fried version, but I guess that you could try putting a thick coating of oil on the cookie sheet if you want to try to mimic the fried texture. Even without the oil it's delicious and a little healthier too!

Fried dough! I live in New England, we've always called it fried dough. I miss it too. Much as I love cinnamon sugar pie crust, that's basically just rugelach. Which is lovely, but it's not fried dough. Fried dough is soft, chewy, warm, tasty, powdered-sugary amazingness. I hope somebody has a recipe for it.... sigh...

Hey, if you deep fry cinnamon Chebe? Oooo..... I may need to try that soon. I just bought grapeseed oil, which is good for frying because it has a very high flash point. I will get back to you all....

Hmm... last time I made gluten-free pie crust, the dough itself didn't taste all that great, so I didn't make my usual cinnamon and sugar stuff with the extra, BUT when it was baked it was delicious, so maybe I should have. I've never fried it -- I'll have to try it out and let you all know how it turns out.

I have a recipe that you can try...It comes from an old school recipe book. I have used cup for cup of gluten free flour compared to normal flour give or take a bit but it always turns out. You just have to watch you batter. Best of luck :)

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups milk

1 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons white sugar

3/8 cup shortening

2 tablespoons active dry yeast

4 cups gluten free flour

1 quart oil for frying

3 tablespoons ground cinnamon

6 tablespoons white sugar

Directions

In small saucepan over medium heat, combine milk, salt, 2 tablespoons sugar and shortening. Heat until shortening melts and sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and let cool to lukewarm, 110 degrees F (43 degrees C). Sprinkle in yeast and let sit until foamy.

Transfer mixture to large bowl, and stir in flour to make a dough. Knead until smooth, cover and let rise 30 minutes.

In a large heavy skillet or deep fryer, heat 1 inch of oil to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

Roll out 1 to 2 inch balls of dough into thin sheets. Fry sheets 1 to 2 minutes on a side, until puffed and golden. Drain on paper towels.

Combine cinnamon and 6 tablespoons sugar. Sprinkle over warm pastries. Serve.

This sound so good. Do you need to add xanthan gum?

If you google gluten free puff pastry, there's a recipe on there that I've been wanting to try but haven't... that might work for those flakey elephant ears!

Help! The link didn't work for me. It only took me to her blog about her goats.

Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

Thanks.

    • I think that if you soaked in the paddle in vinegar and scrubbed it a few times, you will be fine.  But if in doubt, just set the mixer aside for a while until your family's health has improved.  In the meantime, use your arm to mix dough!  My grandma never had a mixer!   I bought a bunch of new stuff because I had been married for 25 years when diagnosed.  It was time for new things!   Everyone is different in their response to gluten.  Science has given us a good estimate, but we know that nothing is "one size fits all".  You just have to figure out what is best for you and your family.   My anemia resolved within months of being gluten free (ferritin levels).  I still have Thalassemia, but it is mild and my body has adapted.  It is most likely the one reason that I never made the Olympic team!  😆 BTW, family and friends are not allowed to bring in gluten into our house with the exception of beer.  They can contribute to a potluck by bringing beverages, uncut fruit and veggies, new condiments, tableware, and ice cream ......etc.
    • Thank you so much. It's so nice to have such friendly and helpful people to talk to while I await my answers.  I had an interesting experience yesterday... I ate a bowl of Kraft mac n cheese... then passed out for 4 hours and woke up vomiting. I've had a lot of experiences like that after eating over the past 2 years, but I never put those pieces together because celiac disease was totally off my radar. Just found it very interesting.  I've been pushing down lots of gluten-y foods just to make sure my tests will come out right. So tired of waiting! Really, if this isn't the answer to my 40 lb mysterious weight loss, fatigue, and painful gas/bloating... then what's left? Cancer doesn't seem likely in a 33 year old, but I am really scared.  Thanks for helping me through this. Anyone who stumbles accross this place is lucky to find such supportive and kind, helpful people!
    • Hello and welcome I don't have an answer, like you I'm eating rice in processed foods as well as a side dish so I'm also wondering if I'm eating too much. If the rice is in a product like flour there's no way to tell how its prepared etc However for this: You can pre soak and rinse the rice in advance and change the way you cook it to reduce your exposure by up to 80% Details: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/articles/2F1MDzyW55pg97Tdpp7gqLN/should-i-be-concerned-about-arsenic-in-my-rice    
    • I use almond, and coconut a lot now my bakery used to use oat and almond blends. We never used rice, or starches as our goal was to keep it low glycemic. Now days we are transitioning to cut out oats. I started having....ok I omitted and gave in after being in denial a similar reaction to oats (10% of celiacs do if I recall) over a year ago. Anyway as for flour blends premade avoiding rice and grains try simple mills at https://www.simplemills.com/collections/all I have composed a huge list of various gluten-free goods here, even recently updated with grain free, and pizza section https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/  
    • Hello Everyone, New here and have joined because I couldn't find an answer to my question online. I was diagnosed after a long spell with anemia in 2015 and have been on the diet (and improving!) ever since. But I wonder whether how much rice I'm eating is very healthy. I have always liked to bake and it took awhile to find a flour mix I like (Cup 4 Cup - worth its weight in gold...), but a lot of gluten-free food subs in rice (white rice, brown rice, rice flour) plus I eat actual rice as a side dish. Is this too much? Keep in mind, I also eat salads like it's my job and love making vegetable soups too. Any advice on gluten-free foods (specifically flours) that don't fall back on rice as a substitute? I should add that I can't really get excited about quinoa, despite my best efforts. Thanks in advance.
