Gluten-Free Flour

All of my gluten-free apple recipes were developed with Pillsbury gluten-free flour. It is an all-purpose cup for cup rice flour blend.

A cup for cup or 1 for 1 gluten-free flour includes starches and xanthan gum. Xanthan gum is important to gluten-free baking because it mimics the elasticity of traditional wheat flour.

So make sure to check the ingredients of your gluten-free flour so as not to add any extra xanthan gum to your flour if it already includes it. If you do, you will get gummy baked goods!

I like Pillsbury gluten-free flour. Not all gluten-free flours are created equal. You may experience different results depending on the gluten-free flour blend you choose.

These gluten-free apple recipes with not work with almond, oat, or coconut flour.

Tip For Measuring Gluten-Free Flour

The best way to measure gluten-free flour is the “spoon & level” method. Do not scoop the flour directly out of the bag with your measuring cup or you could get more flour than the recipe calls for.

It is super important to use a measuring cup made for dry ingredients (not a pyrex liquid measuring cup) to measure gluten-free flour. Use a spoon to scoop the flour into the measuring cup. After you have spooned the flour into the measuring cup, use the back of a knife to level off the top of the measuring cup.

Dairy-Free Baking

For the dairy-free options to my recipes I use Smart Balance butter and unsweetened almond milk.

Vegan Baking

For the vegan options to my recipes I use Bob’s Red Mill egg replacer, Smart Balance butter and unsweetened almond milk.

  1. Your recipes are the very best! We never hesitate to make a recipe when they are one of yours. 💖 My husband and I would call ourselves foodies, we usually work at least 10 to 12 hours a day at least six days a week, but when we both discovered that we needed to be gluten-free and we couldn’t eat corn or milk, our world imploded on us. Cooking became difficult and dissatisfying. But your amazing recipes and advice on how to use GF ingredients and cook gluten free foods changed the very quality of our lives. 🌟 When we find out that someone we know has been advised by their doctor that they can no longer eat gluten we ALWAYS recommend that they look up your recipes and use them. Then we bake them something yummy from one of your recipes, and give it to them as a gift. Thank you for changing our lives in such a positive way. Blessings 🌿
