Baking, outside of my comfort zone
This morning we’re off to A Tuba Christmas in downtown Dallas.
Our son is participating this year.
Anyhoo, back to my baking issue.
I’ve got family members with food allergies.
I’m sure I am not alone.
On Christmas Eve, we will be having brunch with my Sister-in-Love and her family. Michelle and her family have recently removed gluten, dairy and soy from their diets, also known as (GFDFSF)
Meaning choices about what to bring to Christmas Eve Brunch
Thank goodness my bacon jam is (GFDFSF). I’ll be bringing it, but I also wanted to bring something sweet. Something I could leave with them, something for Christmas morning.
I had to alter the recipe a smidge, because I do not have any dairy free chocolate chips. I used dried cranberries instead.
I also found a large list of Gluten-Free recipes from Betty Crocker. A handy resource for those who are gluten-free
Gluten-free products (pre-packaged) are more expensive than their regular flour cousins. Like 3 times the price. Regular Betty Crocker cake mix was $1.49, Gluten-free cake mix was $4.49. Betty Crocker does have a coupon available on their website for .85 cents off the purchase of any Gluten-free dessert mix.
Other than changing the chocolate chips to dried cranberries, I followed the directions listed on the recipe.
I made 4 small breads. 1 for tasting (and blog purposes) the other 3 for Christmas Eve.
The rice flour does not rise much, so it is important to shape the loaves before you bake them. If you don’t you’ll have ugly loaves…like I do.
The bread is moist, very moist….it is not exactly the texture we are use to from bread, but it does taste pretty good.
I love that there are recipes and options like this for those who are (GFDFSF).
I would like to wish you all a Happy Holiday.
