gluten free Dad’s cookies!

gluten free dad's cookies. gfandme.comDo you miss those crispy, spicy prepackaged Dad’s cookies? Geoff certainly did. This recipe for gluten free Dad’s Cookies is the culmination of a long process of trying to get just the right flavour and texture of those little marvels in the bright yellow bags. One result was posted here earlier under the title Coconut Oatmeal Cookies. They were good, but too tender and too spicy to be truly called a Dad’s cookie copycat! These, however, come very close to the real thing, so go ahead, eat them by the handful, dunk them in your milk, or dip them in your coffee. Yummmm.

Note: Not everyone who has celiac disease can tolerate oats and oat flour, even when they are certified gluten free. If you have questions, talk to your physician or dietitian.

gluten free buns or rolls –

gluten free buns from also rice and egg free and can be dairy free as well. These gluten free buns are salty and crispy on the outside with a soft, sweet, doughy centre, and they have none of that bitter gf flour flavour. They’re also rice and egg free and can be made without dairy. And because you knead the dough with an electric mixer, they’re also pretty easy to throw together. Unlike many gluten free bread doughs that tend to resemble cake batter, this recipe results in a dough that can be worked with and shaped, making it quite versatile.  Try using it to make gf bread sticks!

lightly lemon gluten free white cake – geoff’s new favorite!

Lightly Lemon Gluten Free White Cake. Perfect for layer or birthday cakes. gfandme.comThis gluten free white cake is Geoff’s new favorite cake! We have been trying to come up with a great white cake recipe for a couple of years now, and I think this is it. The lemon is very mild – just enough to add the smallest hint of citrus – so what you are left with is a moist, airy not-too-sweet vanilla cake. If you follow this blog, you know I am not much of a cake decorator (this is about as fancy as I can get) but if you are so inclined, this would be a fantastic recipe to use for a birthday cake or a gf layer cake. Sandwiched on either side of a layer of lemon custard or raspberry jam, it would be to die for!

Great tasting white cake, like white bread, is hard to make gluten free. Unlike, say, a chocolate cake, there’s just nothing in a white cake to hide the unfamiliar aftertaste that some gf flours leave behind. In this recipe, though, the combination of the almond flour and the lemon does just that, but without taking over from the delicate vanilla. We’ll be making this one again…and again…and again… (Scroll down for the recipe.)

gluten free slow cooker bread

gluten free slow cooker bread. gfandme.comAs we’ve said before, come January we start pulling out the slow cooker for some mid-winter comfort foods. But slow cookers can be used for more than roasting and stewing, as this gluten free slow cooker bread demonstrates! This bread is heavy and sweet like a rye bread but I think my favorite thing about it is that it actually GETS BETTER WITH AGE! It’s good on the day you bake it, better the next day, and at its best the day after that. I think it’s the almond flour that keeps it moist and gets better as it slowly absorbs all the flavours. Whatever the reason, it’s not until day four that this bread finally starts to dry out and lose flavour. (I only know this because Geoff and I showed severe restraint while watching a wonderful golden loaf age away on our counter top. Four days was as much as we could take!) If you don’t like having a freezer full of half eaten loaves of gf bread, and you do like a heavy artisan-style loaf that has just a hint of Danish rye flavour, this is the recipe for you!

gluten free dinner rolls: whole grain or white

gluten free dinner rolls. gfandme.comThese dinner rolls are soft and yeasty with a tender bite. They are also sweet making them good all on their own, divine with a bit of butter or margarine, and perfect for those turkey or ham bunwiches over the holiday season! Mmmmmm. A bit of ham, a slice of swiss or cheddar, and some Dijon mustard. Heaven!

Below you’ll find recipes for either white or brown buns. The photo above is a white dinner roll. We prefer the nuttiness of the teff in the brown buns but they aren’t quite as photogenic!

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.

saturday morning strawberry muffins – gluten free

strawberry muffins_2-001We had some leftover strawberries from making this salad and decided to use them up in some gluten free muffins. The delicate flavour of strawberry can easily be overpowered in baked goods, so to intensify the berry-ness of these muffins we use strawberry coulis both as a wet ingredient and as a garnish while serving. We also use mild and slightly sweet coconut and oat flours which compliment the strawberries, keep these muffins moist and light and pack nutrition and fibre into every bite. With your favorite morning cup of “pick me up,” these muffins make an awesome weekend breakfast!
