Tips For Using Gluten Free Baking Mixes

Makers entering the gluten free baking realm for the first time can feel a bit intimidated, but fear not! In addition to having several gluten free mixes of our own, we’ve found that these tips aid in an optimal gluten free baking experience.

The Mixes

Because gluten free baking leaves room for customization, additives are definitely a great option. Always make sure to throw in any extra dry ingredients BEFORE adding wet ingredients.

For some extra flavor in your cakes, consider a dash of salt or a splash of sweetener to your batter. Adding glaze or icing after letting your cake cool down is also a great way to turn up the taste.

When making pie crust, adding a bit more flour to your mix might be necessary in order to achieve a soft, desired dough texture.

To help with moisture, adding in egg or oil can help, but should be done so very carefully.

The Methods

To prevent your recipe from getting soggy, try to remove it from the pan as soon as you can after baking. Allowing your sweet treats to breathe will ensure a proper balance of moisture.

In order to add structure, use an electric beater for your batter. Mixing more vigorously for a longer period of time will create more air pockets that lead to a fluffier outcome.

For a crispier outcome, such as thin crust pizza, use a dark pan and add oil to both the pan’s surface and dough before baking.

When baking gluten free cookies, first cool the dough, scoop and transfer to a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Avoiding under or overcooked recipes will require both a timer and a thermometer. Because ovens can vary in power, recipe time should be strictly followed and oven temperature should be regulated with a thermometer.
