America, the country of incredibly delicious, but usually oh so unhealthy, food. One of my absolute favorites or pop-tarts. In the States Glutino has gluten free versions but unfortunately they are not available in the Netherlands and as I was so in the mood for them I decided to make my own.
It is no secret that I love baking, and sometimes you just get a major urge to get in the kitchen and whip up something delicious. Unfortunately this does not combine well with the low carb diet the boyfriend and I started a few weeks ago.
There are a few things which I have not been able to find gluten free which taste similar to their original gluten containing forms. These products include croissants, soesjes (dutch pastry which is most similar to cream puffs) and quiche. My last attempt at baking a quiche was edible but the dough did not resemble quiche in any way!
When I visited the Gebaksjuwelier for a high tea, I found the gluten free magazine containing tips and tricks for baking a perfect gluten free quiche. My interested was immediately spiked, could these few tips really help? It turned out they can!
Sometimes you have a cake you really want to make but just never get round to it. In my case this is a rhubarb pie. As one of my first projects I wanted to make rhubarb cupcakes, only to find out that the season for rhubarb had long passed.
Last week the boyfriend and I went to my parents for a BBQ as all of a sudden it was such gorgeous weather. As a surprise I wanted to bake something, they do so much for us and I thought it was a nice excuse to try out a new recipe 🙂
Churro’s, I’ve had them once before at a festival three years ago. Half a year later I went glutenfree and they were forgotten for 1,5 years until we walked past a Churro’s stand in the zoo. Due to the delicious smell I could almost taste them! All of a sudden I had a huge churro’s craving this weekend and I made my first attempt to make them myself. Large dough sticks became bites, flour was replaced by Schär mix C and two burn blisters later I had a delicious result!
Saturday September 13th 2014 there was an actual glutenfree bake-off! This was organized by www.glutenfreewebshop.com .
Upon arrival delicious cookies and homemade muffins were waiting to be devoured. With drinks and baked goods we got know each other and conversations were started. Questions like “what food do you miss the most?”, “how long have you been eating glutenfree” or comments like “at our place everyone eats glutenfree” or “glutenfree food is so expensive” were exchanged. After a brief introduction the time had come, we were allowed to get started!
