Gluten-free Recipes
From Sarah Leslie of Ohio. Check out Sarah's tips on gluten-free cooking, here.

Gluten-free Biscuits
1-3/4 c. flour mixture
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. xanthan or guar gum (or methylcellulose)

Cut in 1/2 c. butter

Add 1 cup yogurt, sour cream or cottage cheese (I use Horizon sour cream or cottage cheese, as it is gluten-free!). If you use cottage cheese the biscuits are very moist and flaky, but I'd recommend that you put the leftovers in the fridge because they could spoil easily. You can also add grated cheddar cheese if you want cheese biscuits.

Drop them on a greased cookie sheet and pat them down a bit. Bake 10-12 minutes at 450 degrees (watch them! They cook quickly!) until lightly browned and springy to the touch.

I use this recipe for many things. I double it for my family, which sometimes is not even enough.

You can use this recipe to make a fruit cobbler. Just cook some fruit of your choice (cherries, blueberries, apples, peaches, raspberries, or some combination, etc.) to a boil in a big pot (mix the fruit and its juice with sugar and cornstarch before heating). Cook until thick. Drop this biscuit dough on top in little spoonfuls to make "dumplings" or cobbler type topping. Cover the pot with a lid and cook on low for about 12 minutes.

You can also pat a double or triple batch of this dough into a greased 9x13" pan and cover it with cinnamon sugar for a quick coffee cake.

You can use this for a gluten-free pizza crust, although it is very tender and tends to absorb the pizza sauce. I sometimes just cover it with mozzarella cheese and bake it.

Gluten-free Coffee Cake
This recipe is good enough to feed to company or take to a potluck! Be sure to include the almond meal1 in the flour mix. I double this and put it into a 9x13" pan.

1 1/2 c. flour mix
1 c. sugar
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. xanthan or guar gum (or methylcellulose)

Mix the flours well. In a separate bowl combine:
1 cup sour cream (gluten free)
2 eggs
1 tsp. gluten-free vanilla2

Add the sifted ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until blended. Pour into a pan and cover with this mixture:
2 Tb. butter
2 Tb. rice flour
5 Tb. white or brown sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 to 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, pecans or almonds

Bake 20-40 minutes (lots of variation in the time) at 350 degrees. Test cake in middle with toothpick for doneness. Cake often rises and then goes back down in middle, but that's normal. Just make sure center is cooked.

1 For almond meal, click here. This site also has pecan meal. The nut meal adds some fat, flavor, nutrition and texture to many baked goods.

2 Gluten-free vanilla can include the vanilla powder that is sold by Authentic Foods in a little jar, or the vanilla powder sold in bulk by Frontier Herbs. If you use the dry powder, mix it with the dry ingredients before adding in the wet ingredients.

Gluten-free Pancakes

1 1/4 c. rice flour (could use sorghum or millet)
c. tapioca starch flour
1 Tb. sugar
tsp. baking powder
tsp. guar gum, xanthan gum or methylcellulose
tsp. salt

Mix dry ingredients well. Add:
2 large eggs
2 cups milk or substitute
2 Tb. olive oil

Mix well with a whisk. These cook like crepes and are capable of holding up to roll things up inside of them. Can even use them like tortillas.

Buttermilk Pancakes
c. rice flour (could use sorghum or millet)
c. tapioca starch flour
c. potato starch flour
c. buttermilk powder
1 Tb. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
tsp. baking soda
tsp. salt

Mix dry ingredients together well. Add:
2 eggs
1 c. water
2 Tb. olive oil

Mix together like regular pancakes and cook on griddle.

Rice-Ricotta Pancakes
2 eggs
c. ricotta cheese (or cottage cheese)
1 Tb. olive oil
c. rice flour (could use sorghum or millet)
2 tsp. sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
tsp. salt
c. milk or substitute

Beat together the eggs and cheese. Add the oil. Mix the dry ingredients together and then add to the wet. The mixture will be thin. Pour onto griddle and cook on medium. These are yummy.
