Converting Your Favorite Recipes to Gluten-Free

Now that you’re gluten-free, you don’t have to say goodbye to your favorite recipes. If you have tons of family recipes that have been handed down to you, this can be very good news!

The conversion process is simple: just use gluten-free flour blend (which you can make yourself using my gluten-free flour blend recipe—or buy it prepackaged) one-for-one. This applies to cookies, pancakes, and muffins.

Does your recipe require cake flour? You can make your own by combining 1 ¼ cups of your gluten-free flour blend with ¼ cup of tapioca starch or flour or ¼ cup of corn starch.

The one-for-one substitution doesn’t apply to all recipes, though, such as with Danish sweet rolls and yeast breads.

  1. I’m surprised that you do not mention anything about Xanthum or Guar Gums. In my experience, just substituting gluten-free flours in traditional family recipes do not suffice. Typically 1/4 to 1/2 of Xanthum Gum is required to give the flours the ability to bind and hold together.

    1. depending on what you are making yes. The amount you use also will vary depending on what you are making, cake, bread, etc.
