You can adjust any baking recipe to gluten-free by using 120 grams per cup of my favorite gluten-free flour blend. Commercial blends such as Pamela’s All-Purpose Artisan Blend, Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1, or King Arthur Measure for Measure are all good choices. Add 1/4 tsp of xanthan gum or 1/2 tsp of psyllium husk powder per cup of flour if your blend doesn’t already contain it. They both help avoid crumbly baked goods.
Weighing your dry ingredients improves your results and gives you recipes that are easy to replicate. It is much more accurate and faster than using measuring cups. If you are using a kitchen scale, spoon your GF flour blend into a cup with straight sides and no spout, until mounded and then use a straight edge to even the top and scrape off the excess. Weigh the flour left in the cup and use that as your base weight for the flour measurements.
Let mixed doughs rest for about 30 minutes before baking, if possible, to let the flours fully absorb all the liquids. If you have questions, you can find a lot of information by clicking on the “Gluten-Free” tab at the top of the page.
Always check to be sure the gluten-free products you are used to using haven’t changed and are still safe to consume.
