Adventures in Gluten-Free Baking

Well, I thought my first attempt at gluten-free baking was going to be a total flop - literally, my cupcakes had fallen and were pretty sorry looking when I pulled them out of the oven. But apparently, there's nothing you can't fix with ganache.

A few coats of melted chocolate-y goodness and they look pretty respectable. I haven't sampled one, but Jim said they're delicious. Not bad considering I have no idea what I'm doing and decided to wing it rather than using a recipe. I ground up some brown rice and quinoa (which at the time, I thought was millet) in the Vitamix and used that as my flour. The full recipe will be coming this week for Sweet on Sunday.


  1. They look good to me! And you're right about the ganache - it fixes everything.

  2. Doesn't it though? I finally had one today, and it was yummy! :)
