Gluten-Free

I saw on BabyCakes website where Erin McKenna appeared on the Food Network. After searching on the Food Network's website I have found the following recipes (posted below). All recipes are gluten-free. I personally have not attempted any of the recipes (so I cannot say how they turn out) but I wanted to share this find with everyone because I love BabyCakes baked goods.

Also they have a cookbook coming out in the end of April click here for more details

Enjoy everyone,

Gluten-Free Blueberry Muffins
2 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup canola oil
2/3 cup agave nectar
2/3 cup rice milk
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh blueberries
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Line a standard 12-cup muffin tin with paper liners.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, xanthan gum, and cinnamon. Add the oil, agave nectar, rice milk, and vanilla to the dry ingredients and stir until the batter is smooth. Using a plastic spatula, gently fold in the blueberries just until they are evenly distributed throughout the batter.

Pour 1/3 cup of the batter into each prepared cup, almost filling the cup. Bake the muffins on the center rack for 22 minutes, rotating the pan 180 degrees after 15 minutes. The muffin will bounce slightly when pressed and a toothpick inserted in the center will come out clean.

Let the muffins stand for 15 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack and cool completely. Store the muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.




Gluten-Free Cornbread
2/3 cup rice milk
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
3/4 cup gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
1/2 cup cornmeal
1/2 cup cornflour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon kosher salt, plus more for sprinkling
1/2 cup coconut oil, plus more for pans
1/3 cup agave nectar
1/3 cup applesauce
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a 7 by 4 by 3-inch loaf pan with oil.
Pour the rice milk and apple cider vinegar into a small bowl, but do not stir; set aside. This will create your "buttermilk."

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cornmeal, cornflour, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, and salt. Add the oil, agave nectar, applesauce, and vanilla to the dry ingredients. Stir the batter until well combined. Pour in the "buttermilk," and mix gently until the ingredients are fully incorporated and a slightly grainy batter is formed.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and sprinkle with some kosher salt. Bake the cornbread on the center rack for 34 minutes, rotating the pan 180 degrees after 20 minutes. The cornbread will bounce slightly when pressed and a toothpick inserted in the center will come out clean. Let the cornbread stand in the pan for 20 minutes, then gently run a knife around the edge of the bread. Cover the top of the pan with a cutting board, and invert onto the board. Carefully lift the pan away and re-invert the cornbread onto another cutting board. Either cut and serve warm, or wait until it is completely cool before storing. Cover the uncut cornbread with plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.




Gluten-Free Cinnamon Sugar Teacake
1 cup garbanzo-fava bean flour
1 1/4 cups evaporated cane juice, plus more for sprinkling
1/2 cup potato starch
1/4 cup arrowroot
2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1/2 cup coconut oil, plus more for greasing and brushing
1/3 cup applesauce
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup hot water
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Lightly grease a 7 by 4 by 3-inch loaf pan with oil.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, 1 cup of the evaporated cane juice, the potato starch, arrowroot, baking powder, baking soda, xanthan gum, salt, and 1 tablespoon of the cinnamon. Add the oil, applesauce, vanilla, and 1 cup of hot water to the dry ingredients. Stir until the batter is smooth. Transfer 1/4 cup of the batter to a small bowl, and add the remaining 1/4 cup of the evaporated cane juice, 1 tablespoon of cinnamon, and the remaining hot water. Stir until the mixture is creamy.

Pour contents of the medium bowl into the prepared loaf pan. Carefully drizzle the batter from the small bowl down the center of the loaf. To create the swirl, take a teaspoon and, starting from 1 end of the loaf pan, move down the length of the pan as you swirl the spoon up and down through the batter. Sprinkle the top with evaporated cane juice. Put the pan in the oven on the center rack and bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and brush the top with a generous amount of oil. Return it to the oven and bake for another 15 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and the crust is crunchy.

Let the teacake cool in the pan for 20 minutes, then gently run a knife around the edge of the cake. Cover the top of the pan with a cutting board, and invert the cake onto the board. Carefully lift the pan away and re-invert the Teacake onto another cutting board. Either cut and serve warm, or wait until it is completely cool before storing. Cover the uncut teacake with plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 3 days.




Gluten-Free Double Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup coconut oil
1 1/4 cups evaporated cane juice
1/3 cup applesauce
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups gluten-free all-purpose baking flour
1/4 cup flax meal
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
1 cup chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, mix together the oil, evaporated cane juice, applesauce, cocoa powder, salt, and vanilla. In another medium bowl, whisk together the flour, flax meal, baking soda, and xanthan gum. Using a rubber spatula, carefully add the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and combine until dough is formed. Gently fold in the chocolate chips just until they are evenly distributed throughout the dough.

Using a melon-baller or tablespoon, scoop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them 1-inch apart. Gently press each with the heel of your hand to help them spread. Bake on the center rack for 14 minutes, rotating the trays 180 degrees after 7 minutes. The cookies will be crispy on the edges and soft in the center.

Let the cookies stand on the baking sheet for 10 minutes, then transfer the cookies to a wire rack and cool completely before covering. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.
