8 Gluten Free Baking Tips by Gluten Free Bloggers

Vegetarian Mamma (www.vegetarianmamma.com)
"Bakers gone Bake Bake Bake! Think of how you can use those boxed baking mixes differently then intended. Maybe using your brownie mix and spreading it out on a pizza pan to create a baked fruit pizza. Taking a pizza dough mix and turning it into donuts! Remember to think outside of the 'box'!"

gfJules (www.gfjules.com)
"Find a recipe ahead of time that you really love and turns out well, that way you're not scrambling and stressed trying to figure out what to bake last minute."

I Am Gluten Free (www.iamglutenfree.com)
"Because GF baking is so different from baking with wheat flour, even if you're an experienced baker you should follow the recipe when you're starting out in gluten-free baking. Once you get the hang of the weird flours, then you can experiment with them!"

"Find a good gluten-free all purpose flour that you like and don't afraid to experiment! My best recipes have come from me just trying something new in the kitchen. Once you figure out the basics of baking gluten-free, everything else becomes easy. It takes practice like anything else so don't get discouraged if something doesn't turn out great. I've found that bananas, pumpkin puree, or even apple sauce adds a great consistency to make a bread tastes like normal."

"Find a recipe ahead of time that you really love and turns out well, that way you're not scrambling and stressed trying to figure out what to bake last minute."

Flippin' Delicious (www.flippindelicious.com)
"Don't make too many substitutions! When you sub out 1 or maybe 2 ingredients you can still get pretty good results, but I have found when I try subbing out 2+ ingredients it takes a lot more adjusting to get the recipe right, and you'll end up with more mountains of crumbs and hocky pucks in the process. Those baking fails can be discouraging, but don't give up! The less subs you make, the better your recipe will be on the first try!"

MI Gluten Free Gal (www.miglutenfreegal.com)
"When it comes to dusting muffin tins or other dishes with flour, I like to use a tea ball. It helps you control the area being coated. It's especially helpful when trying to grease muffin tins."

Good For You Gluten Free (www.goodforyouglutenfree.com)
"When baking gluten-free, stick with the basics and don't force things that just weren't meant to be gluten-free. For example, I love pie, but making a gluten-free pie crust is painful and never tastes as good. Instead of wasting time perfecting a gluten-free pie crust, I make fruit crisps instead. They are just as good, if not better, and they totally satisfy that craving for pie."
