Gluten Free Recipe Roundup

Gluten-Free Recipe Roundup

In this post I share 3 awesome gluten-free recipes: focaccia bread, waffles, and chocolate cake!

Using someone else’s recipe and seeing how they bake or cook is a lot of fun. Not only is it awesome to try new things, but you get a personal glimpse into the recipe creator’s life and cooking style.

And its exciting to stumble upon instant new “favorites” or things you wouldn’t have tried without the inspiration! Here are 3 favorite gluten-free recipes that I’ve found and enjoyed over the past couple months:

Gluten-Free Focaccia from Free Range Cookies

Gluten Free Focaccia Recipe

“The foccacia is here! The foccacia is here!”

That’s what my grandmother and aunties would call out, excitedly, as the traditional focaccia arrived on Christmas Eve.

Really good focaccia is a thing of legend in my family, and this recipe passes the test. The first time I brought this gluten-free focaccia to the fam — no one knew it was GF or questioned it — and this is a large group of 100% Italian Americans. Surely someone would have been abel to tell?! Nope!

This recipe tastes is the real deal and worth the overnight rise. Just plan ahead and mix it up the night before. Of course, I like to load mine up with a lot of rosemary, herbs, and purifying salt.

 

Gluten-Free Waffles by E. Bennett

Waffles are so good. Something about the big pockets filled with butter and sugary syrup. My mother-in-law got me a waffle iron for Christmas, so I made her these waffles for Ostara a few weeks back.

My only word of caution with this recipe was that I had to add a lot of additional GF flour, at least 1/4 cup more for a full 2 cups of gluten-free flour in the total recipe.

I used the following flour mix instead, but I’m sure it’s similar as written because it’s a similar ratio of starch to heavier flour. Do as you will.

1 cup tapioca flour

1/2 cup sorghum flour

1/2 cup brown rice flour

I’ve also experimented with subbing one of the 1/2 cups with almond flour or oat flour, and the waffles were great both times. Oat flour is especially sweet and delicious for breakfast!

 

Chocolate F-ing cake! By Queen Bead

Sometime you just need some fucking cake. I made this particular cake for my husband one day when I could tell he needed cake. He’s gluten-free too, so I know these occasional treats are special and super appreciated by both of us.

This gluten-free cake recipe is simple and just makes one small sheet cake. It was exceptionally moist and chocolatey, and really easy for one of those random days where you just need some fucking cake.
