These gluten-free recipes are developed with Pillsbury gluten-free flour. It is a cup-for-cup all-purpose gluten-free rice flour blend and already has the xanthan gum and starches in it.
Most gluten-free all-purpose flour blends have starches and xanthan gum already in them. The xanthan gum helps replace the elasticity and texture of gluten.
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!
Not all gluten-free flours are created equal. You may experience different baking results depending on the gluten-free flour blend you choose.
These gluten-free dessert recipes with not work with almond, oat, or coconut flour.
Tip For Measuring Gluten-Free Flour
Make sure to use a measuring cup made for dry ingredients (not a pyrex liquid measuring cup) to measure gluten-free flour. I measure the gluten-free flour with the “spoon & level” method.
I use a large spoon to scoop the flour into the measuring cup. Then I use the back of a knife to level off the top of the measuring cup.
Please do not scoop the flour directly out of the bag with your measuring cup. If you do, you could end up with more flour than is called for in the recipe.
I have tested these gluten-free recipes with dairy-free ingredient substitutions.
- For the milk in the recipes, you can substitute it with unsweetened almond milk or unsweetened coconut milk. I personally use unsweetened almond milk.
- For the butter in the recipes you can use dairy-free or vegan butter. I like Smart Balance buttery spread.
