Baking Tips for Gluten-Free Baking
- Follow the recipe exactly: When working with gluten-free flours, pay close attention to the steps to mix ingredients since the order matters.
- Measure well: Use a correct measuring tool for dry and wet ingredients.
- Use a cooling rack: Cooling baked goods give off steam. If this steam gets trapped inside a loaf, they can get gummy.
- Find a new favorite recipe? Next time make a double batch and freeze your extra loaf. Remember to use a freezer-safe bag or container.
- How to soften your stale bread? Wrap the bread in a slightly damp towel, place it on a microwave-safe dish, and microwave on high for a few seconds at a time until it’s the correct texture.
