Need A Bit Of Help.. in Gluten-Free Recipes & Cooking Tips Posted March 7, 2007 · Report to Admin On a side note, I love the cause your special lemon poppyseed muffins, they taste like the real thing, and great to have on hand for a quickie... And, coconut oil rocks. I love it. Since you are so new at gluten free, did you make sure you followed the instructions to the letter? I find that gluten free baking is very exact..not as much leeway as regular baking. Best of luck to you. No I've not really found that. But I'm only now getting into gluten-free baking. I'm hopeless following a recipe. Really I am! I read it and then cull what is in the house and pantry, then I tweak to suit whats available ingredient-wise (unless it's a specific something like ice cream or such). Then I start throwing things about into the bowl. Somewhere along the line I short circuited and if whatever I'm baking doesn't do what it's supposed to I'll shamelessly adapt it to another dish and serve! No apologies. But I have had my share of burnt offerings and I do find gluten-free baking is more temperamental or needs more effort. Six beaten egg whites and five siftings of the flour, double the flavouring if using Buckwheat vs normal measures for flavourings if you're using rice flour. That sort of thing. Marcus.
