Do you like to keep things simple? Me too. I like simple but delicious recipes that use inexpensive ingredients and have easy-to-follow steps. “Sweet & Simple Gluten-Free Baking” delivers quick and easy recipes that serve up traditional desserts and sweets to please any palate by providing the same flavors and textures as their gluten-containing equivalents. With 10 ingredients or less, all recipes use traditional ingredients, take less time to make, and less than an hour to bake! You won’t find any extravagant ingredients or labor-intensive steps in this cookbook and with the recipes being structured with process and ease–of-use in mind, the gluten-free population has a great resource available for their kitchens.
All recipes are versatile and work with most gluten-free flour blends (minus almond flour and coconut flour because of the fluctuation in wet ingredients needed) with at least 30% starch. The blends I developed have 50% starch and have been tested with each recipe, but you don’t have to use my blend or any of the blends I recommend. You can use your own preferred blend which should yield similar results, but please note that the texture and flavors may vary depending on the gluten-free flours you use. I always recommend starting with the exact recipe and ingredients called for, before venturing out on your own and modifying them.
