gluten-free Baking Newbie

Pre-Celiac I usually only baked on holidays, but lately I've been wanting to give it a try. I went to the store and bought some all purpose gluten-free Flour (Bob's Red Mill) and some Xanthan Gum. Can I just sub these items in for regular All purpose flour on other recipes? I've seen some of the discussions on here about a mix of flours, but this one looks like it's already a mix (Garbanzo bean flour, potato starch, tapioca flour, white sorghum flour, and fava bean flour). There's actually a recommendation on the side of the package (1:1 flour + varying amounts of xanthan gum depending on what you're baking). I'm just scared to try something and have it be a giant waste.

Can someone point me to some tried and true recipes that don't require any other specialty ingrediants (flaxseed, multiple types of flours, special starchs, tapioca, etc)? I don't want to run thither and yon to find a bunch of unusual ingredients. I'd like to start out with what is just in my pantry.

Thanks! I appreciate any and all help.

Make a little bun in a cup in the microwave, that way, if you are a person who can taste bean flour, you will not be looking at an entire loaf of bread- work, and regretting it. Also, putting a pinch of cumin, a pinch of a sweet spice, and a little vinegar helps with the bean taste if you are a "bean-taste reactor." If the all -purpose mix succeeds, then progress to a full sized recipe.

thread with bun in cup links

Just use the Bob's AP for the flour in the recipe. No gum, the egg binds it enough.

If that works, I would suggest a basic chocolate cake recipe in an 8" by 8" pan, subbing the Bob's AP and gum or egg for the regular flour. Cake is easier than bread. Wacky cake: - http://www.food.com/...acky-cake-18025

edit to add, use gluten free vinegar, preferably pure apple cider vinegar

I'm a huge fan of Better Batter flour. You can google tons of Glutenfree on a Shoe String recipes... she uses BB exclusively. I've done the mixing of flours and it's a PITA (pain in the a$$). BB flour is cup for cup but I use GFSS's recipes. They're good!! I didn't bake much for years, but have been enjoying it lately!!

i just ventured into gluten-free baking last year as well, and i also started with bob's gluten-free flour.

my first recipe was my tried and true double chocolate zucchini bread:

I used the bob's flour as a direct replacement, and the xantham gum as they recommend on the package. i am also not eating dairy, so i sub'ed almond milk and enjoy life choc chips. it was a big hit!

good luck!

    • No, I won't swallow it! Right now, the wound is not really open, and cold relieves the pain more than warmth, so I'm not sure how much good salt water will do. I guess I get to anticipate the day when it does open, if it does. O goody. The pain is incredible. And I'm very hungry because I'm not eating enough. This really sucks, I must say. Thanks for your other words. Yeah, it was the citrus, and the stress, and some sugary things probably did not help either. Ugh.
    • If your blood tests do come out as negative, and they might, you can ask for genetic testing to rule out celiac and an endoscopy to check for damage.  I was in a similar situation years ago. I was gradually getting more and more tummy problems, a friend suggested cutting back on gluten and bam, I felt better when I did. So, when I finally was able to find a doctor who was willing to believe I didn't just have IBS, I already knew that if I ate gluten I had major diarrhea problems and pain... so went basically gluten free. I told that to the doc and he didn't believe me... but my blood tests all came back negative. Then he did the genetic tests to rule out celiac... they came back positive. Then he did an endoscopy and found damage and diagnosed me... and sent me to a dietitian who knew less about going gluten free than I did. I've been extremely careful since then. 
    • Weak positive means you should have an endoscopy done (with several biopsies) to see if you definitely have celiac. You have to continue eating gluten until the testing is done. If the biopsies don't confirm celiac you can always try a strict gluten free diet for a couple of months to see if you feel better.
    • They offer gluten free buns at $2 a pop.   I get the grilled chicken sandwich w/gluten-free bun and apple slices.  I only put lettuce, tomato, and onions on it.   Tough keeping the bun from falling apart.   I don't have severe symptoms so can't say for sure if I ate all gluten-free.
    • I've had them a few times and don't think I've been gluten-ed.   Not bad when you can find them.   They are in a sealed bag.
