3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce (two lunch size containers)

2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1 cup gluten free flour (recipe in previous post)
1/2 cup oat flour (going to add oat bran too next time)
3/4 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
1/2 t cinnamon or less
1/4 t nutmeg
1 1/2 cups mashed bananas (I used less, since I had less)
1/2 cup raisins or dried cherries, chopped
1/2 cup pecans

Grease two 9×5 loaf pans. Oven to 350
Mix eggs, honey/syrup, applesauce, bananas, and vanilla
Add premixed dry ingredients including raisins and nuts (float better in bread with a flour coating)
Pour into two loaf pans
Bake for 50-55 minutes. test with finger. Do NOT cover until completely cool!

 I wish saved a picture of this bread–Daniel loved it, as did the two B&B inspectors from Stratford Area Bed and Breakfast Association who came by last Tuesday. We passed with flying colours!

Gluten Free Flour and Brownie Recipe

Gluten Free Flour

  • 3 cups rice flour, white or brown works
  • 1 cup potato starch, NOT flour
  • 1/2 cup tapioca flour
  • 1 tablespoon Xanthan gum (do not leave this out–you will have a sticky mess baking without it!)

I use this in most regular cookies and quick breads, not just gluten free recipes. If it is a rather “wet” recipe, then I sometimes combine it with some oat flour to stiffen up the dough.  I hope this helps others to use their favourite old recipes in a gluten free way! It works for oatmeal, peanut butter, ginger….  you get the idea.

I have yet to try it with yeast bread, as I find gluten free yeast breads to be just a bit icky, so I have no delusions that I might do it better!

Gluten Free Brownies (using above flour)

  1. Oven at 350 degrees, butter bottom of 8 inch square glass pan
  2. In sauce pan, melt 2 stick butter or margerine (2 1/4 stick if using cocoa powder) and 5 oz unsweetened chocolate, unless using cocoa powder
  3. add 2 cups sugar
  4. plus 2 cups cocoa powder (if not using chocolate above)
  5. Mix well, add 4 eggs
  6. Add 1 1/2 cups flour and 3/4 cups chocolate chips (reduce flour to 1 cup if not using chips)
  7. Bake for 30-35 minutes and let cool at least 15 minutes before cutting into squares.
