My poor gluten intolerant peeps, baking can be a little tricky sometimes especially when you need to make modifications to recipes. So here’s to you! 9 tips for gluten free baking!
Tips 1: Straight swap
If there are less than 2-4 tablespoons of wheat flour in a recipe, do a straight swap with a nut or rice flour of your choice
Tips 2: Weight Conversion
I cup gluten flour = 140 grams of gluten-free all-purpose flour
Tips 3: make glute-free all-purpose flour by using a 40/60 ratio
40 % Whole grains – Brown rice flour, buckwheat flour, com flour, mesquite flower, quinoa flour, or sorghum flour
60 % White Flours/ Starches – White rice flour, arrowroot flour, cornstarch, potato flour, or potato starch
Tips 4: Baking powder
Add 1-2 teaspoons of baking powder to every 140 grams of gluten-free all purpose flour to help your product rise
Tips 5: Gum
If you’re making breads or cakes, add 1/2 to 1 teaspoon of guar gum or xanthan gum for every 140 grams of gluten-free all-purpose flour to give your baked goods a bit of volume
Tips 6: Egg White

Tips 7: Buttermilk
