For a couple of years now I’ve been regularly checking out a blog called Gluten Free On A Shoestring. I’m not really sure what took me so long, but I’ve just in the last few weeks started giving some of the recipes a try. It started with mixing up a batch of Nicole’s (the blog owner’s) Better than Cup4Cup Flour.
Then I tried out her recipe for GF pretzel rolls. These rolls were amazing and I’ll definitely be making them again. FYI, grilled cheese never tasted so good!
Next came the GF pizza crust from her first cookbook. Once again, this recipe is a keeper! Since the crust is from her book, I won’t be sharing the recipe. However, I will be back soon with my recipe for Philly cheese steak pizza with Creole aioli.
Then a couple of days ago I decided to try substituting the flour mix into a standard recipe. I had come across a recipe that sounded too good to pass up–Blueberry Doughnut Muffins. The experiment went off without a hitch! The muffins were absolutely fantastic. They were so moist and the lemon glaze complemented the muffins perfectly. I don’t say or think this often about gluten free foods, but with these muffins you would never know they were GF unless someone told you!
The recipe for the muffins can be found here. It really is as simple as substituting the Better Than Cup4Cup mix for the all purpose flour!
