Good Question: Gluten-Free Baking

Pin it button big

Can you run a gluten free recipe review? I have tried sooooo many bad gf things... I am dying!

Like... has anyone been able to even sorta get a croissant like buttery yummy goodness in gf?!!!!!

Michele, we feel your pain. While we do not need to eat gluten-free, a very good friend is celiac and has had years of trouble figuring out what she can and cannot eat. Once she came to a party we threw and we discovered that even the fudge, which had powdered sugar in it, was not eatable because powdered sugar contains gluten-laden cornstarch.

So while we do not have a lot of expertise in this area, we are going to point you to some weblogs and recipes from people who do. The first, most obvious place to look is Shauna, the Gluten Free Girl. She is currently writing a book on gluten-free eating.

You should also check out Gluten Free By the Bay's regular gluten-free recipe roundups - a great source for lots of recipes. For other breakfast options (aside from the elusive croissant) check out this list.

We can, however, offer you a croissant source, found on A Gluten-Free Guide. She doesn't bake these herself; they are imported from France. But really, what's better than a French croissant? You can also find crescent rolls here.

Any favorite gluten-free recipes from our readers?
