Gluten free baking

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I need any advice on gluten free baking. My husband is gluten intolerant and i have had a heck of a time trying to find/make decent gluten free baked goods. I usually use a pre mixed gluten free flour with xantham gum and convert regular recipes. This has turned out alright, most of the time. Any other methods i could use?

Hello Jthan. I see you're new to Chef Talk. Welcome!

 

I've been doing gluten free baking because I have a dear friend who has celiac disease. I realize you're in Germany, so this may not be a reasonable answer for you, but I use King Arthur's products, both their flour and their mixes. 

 

But Cook's Illustrated also has done excellent and exhaustive research into GF baking and has formulated a very good baking mix. I tested some recipes for their first GF cookbook. It may be worth your while to blend your own flour mixture rather than to send to the U.S. for KAF's mix.

 

I was given to believe it's easy to find GF products in Europe. On my last visit to the UK and (as it happens) Norway, I saw a great many such products in food stores, even in small towns. Just curious.
