gluten free muffins: spiced pumpkin

gluten free muffins: pumpkin spice. gfandme.com

I was aiming for dairy free, gluten free pumpkin muffins but the resulting treats were so cake-like, I thought, “Maybe I’ve serendipitously come up with a recipe for gf pumpkin cupcakes?” Then again, I wanted to eat them for breakfast – and I just can’t let myself start eating cupcakes for breakfast. “So,” I decided, “they need a new name, something that encapsulates their light-yet-hearty crumb and spicy, sweet taste.” My first attempt was “muffcake”… but Geoff said that just didn’t seem right. In the end, I went with my next oh-so-creative idea: “cupffins.” Confused? Give them a try and you’ll see what I mean.

orange-hazelnut gluten free scones

orange hazelnut gluten free sconesLooking for something a little different for breakfast? Try these gluten free scones made with hazelnut flour and orange zest. The flavour profile is out of this world – especially once you add the Nutella glaze. (The glaze recipe is included below – as well as one for a simple orange glaze for those of you who don’t like chocolate. Ha! Who am I kidding!?) These little beauties are surprisingly crispy on the outside and creamy in the centre. If your eyes were closed, you’d swear you were eating a chocolate glazed donut!

breakfast tart: makes its own gluten free crust

gluten free breakfast tart or quicheFor some reason, gluten free breakfasts seem to be hard to come by. Until Geoff was diagnosed with celiac disease, I had no idea how many breakfast foods contain gluten! His go-to breakfast is a home blend of different gf cereals but even this got a little boring after a while. In an attempt to mix things up a bit, we came came up with this recipe for gluten free breakfast tarts. Kind of like a gf mini-quiche, they use gluten free pancake mix to help them puff up nice and fluffy and to create their own light, cake-like pastry crust. Good hot or cold, they are a bit of a lifesaver on busy mornings – just make extra the first day and pull them out of the fridge as needed! They are also incredibly versatile. By adding different fillings, you can continually create new savoury flavours!

gluten free field berry muffins

Okay, what I’d like to say is “look at my fantastic muffins with their nice plump berries and beautiful white cake,” but alas I can’t: it would be a lie. Those muffins pictured below aren’t my muffins. They are somebody else’s muffins.

Why would I post a picture of someone else’s muffins, you ask? Because I just accidentally deleted 197 photos off of my hard drive. Those pictures included my pictures of these field berry muffins (along with two new breads and some fantastic spicy oatmeal cookies – not too mention the snowstorm we had a week ago… Oh and the woodpeckers and the deer that have been hanging around since). Some days I hate technology. It’s not like I ever accidentally threw away a canister of film. (Yes I remember actual film – I am old enough to know why cell phones make that clicky noise when they record an image.) And if I had of picked up a roll of film, opened my cupboard, pulled out my bin and “accidentally” dropped it in the trash, after I realized what a silly a** I’d been, I could have laughed it off, reached back in and plucked it right out again, ready to mail to the developers. (Yes, I remember that too.) Somehow I don’t think I can reach into this black box of mystery humming along beside me and recover my digital files…

Anyway, I digress. I wallow. I resort to clip art.  You’ll just have to trust me when I say that this recipe results in moist and fluffy vanilla muffins ready for your own add-ins. Here we used a berry mix but chocolate chips or nuts would also be great.

When I make them again, which will be soon, I will take a picture – not delete it – and post it proudly for all to see.
