Tips For Baking Gluten-Free Desserts

Baking gluten-free desserts doesn’t have to be difficult! Follow my top tips for delicious gluten-free baking!

  • Experiment with different gluten-free flours until you find a brand that you like (all are a little bit different!)
  • Measure your ingredients properly – this is important with regular baking but seems to be even more so with gluten-free cooking. Measuring dry ingredients using grams is more accurate than using cups or spoons.
  • Read the labels – when baking gluten-free recipes, it’s important to check the labels to ensure that the ingredient is in fact gluten-free (chocolate is one example of this – some types are gluten-free, whereas others are not).
  • Buy bulk almonds – if you have a food processor or a Thermomix, you can make your own almond meal using whole almonds. This is a great way to save money as almond meal (a staple of many gluten-free baking recipes) is a little expensive!
