Gluten Free Baking Tip of the Day – Clean Slice

November 1, 2013

Daily tips for your gluten free baking adventure!

Today’s Tip:

  • When slicing your cakes to serve, heat a knife under a stream of very hot water. Dry the knife which will still be hot. The knife will then easily slide through the cake and give you nice, clean cuts. Especially important for getting pretty slices at your big event!

Gluten Free Baking Tip of the Day – Be Conservative with Gums

October 28, 2013

Daily tips for your gluten free baking adventure!

Today’s Tip:

  • Don’t be heavy handed with your gums (xanthan or guar). This is the mistake lots of people make to ensure that gluten-free items hold together. The result will be a gummy, mass produced texture.

Gluten Free Baking Tip of the Day – Removing Cupcake Papers

October 24, 2013

Daily tips for your gluten free baking adventure!

Today’s Tip:

  • As tempting as it is, don’t try to remove papers while your muffin or cupcake is still warm, as the cake will most likely stick. WAIT, until it’s completely cool unless you don’t mind eating the cake off the paper!

Gluten Free Baking Tip of the Day – Potato Starch

October 21, 2013

Daily tips for your gluten free baking adventure!

Today’s Tip:

  • Potato Starch is used in quite a few of our gluten free recipes. Potato Starch and Potato Flour are very different. Potato Flour tastes a lot like potatoes. Potato starch is mild. You will know the difference because the starch is very fine and the flour is more granular.Crave Bakery Recommended Gluten Free Starch Bobs Red Mill Potato Starch

Gluten Free Baking Tip of the Day – Pie Weights

October 17, 2013

Daily tips for your gluten free baking adventure!

Today’s Tip:

  • If you don’t have pie weights for baking pastry, try using dried beans, lentils or rice. Pie weights are small, heavy objects used to weigh down your pastry when you pre-bake it (also called blind baking). They prevent the crust from pulling away from the sides and bottom of the pan. Line your pastry with parchment paper or aluminum foil to keep beans and pastry from sticking together. Then place beans on top of the lining. Voila baked tart shell!

Gluten Free Baking Tip of the Day – Xanthan Gum

October 14, 2013

Daily tips for your gluten free baking adventure!

Today’s Tip:

  • When using any type of gum (xanthan, guar, etc.), make sure to mix it in with the dry ingredients first. Whisk all the dry ingredients together to distribute the gum evenly. Gums are so fine that they can puff out when you’re mixing so whisk slowly!

Gluten Free Baking Tip of the Day – Oven Temperature

October 10, 2013

Daily tips for your gluten free baking adventure!

Today’s Tip:

  • If you have an oven thermometer, use it! Home ovens often aren’t calibrated properly and can give you an unexpected result. If you see that your oven is 375 degrees when you set it to 350, you then know that your oven is running 25 degrees hot. You can compensate for that by setting it 25 degrees lower each time. (And for the more serious bakers, you now know that your oven should be recalibrated.)
