Allergy Free and Gluten Free Hamburger Buns…A recipe for your Holiday Cookout.

Happy Pre-4th of July everyone!

 Hope you have lot’s of fun gatherings planned and many hours spent with family and friends. All of you out there with Food Allergies, Celiac Disease or Dietary restrictions feel the pinch when it comes to cookouts and family “food” times. Our friends at Better Batter have a wonderfully easy recipe for the “World’s Easiest Sandwich and Hamburger Buns” and I thought it was perfect timing to share it with you. Here in our allergy free store, we carry other Better Batter mixes, and this Better Batter Gluten Free All Purpose Flour is a popular product.  

Try this and let us know what a hit you are at the Barbecue! Have Fun!

Ingredients:

2 c Better Batter Gluten Free Flour

1 tsp salt

1/3 c sugar (sugar may be added to taste)

4 eggs

1.5 c milk or water

Instructions

It is very important to have a very hot oven for this recipe. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Grease 1 or two cookie sheets or muffin top tins.

In your electric mixer, beat the flour, salt, eggs, sugar and milk or water on high speed for 7-10 minutes. This should produce a batter with the consistency of soft butter-cream icing.

Working quickly, spoon this mixture by 1/2 cup portions onto prepared cookie sheets or muffin top tins. Wet hands and gently smooth and flatten mounds to a width of 3-4 inches and a depth of 1/4 to 1/2 inch.

If you desire a soft edge to the bun (as with commercial buns) use a cookie sheet and place mounds so that they touch slightly when flattened. For a crisper crust on all surfaces of the bun, use a muffin top tin or do not allow buns to touch on cookie sheet.

If desired spray with cooking spray – this will improve the finished appearance and texture of the cooked bun.

Place in hot oven and bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and puffed.

Allow to cool completely before slicing.

Corn Bread from 123 Gluten Free

I was a “busy beaver” over the weekend and tried several new recipes. One of them was an Italian Beef Stew and to accompany this dish, I chose to make Corn Bread with a mix we carry in the store from 1-2-3 Gluten Free. This is one of our manufacturers who started their company after having to deal with finding gluten-free foods to accomodate their Celiac Disease. 1-2-3 Gluten Free makes some other great mixes – a Devil’s Food Cake Mix and the Southern Glory Biscuit Mix. All of their mixes are Free from Gluten, Wheat, Dairy, Casein, Peanuts, Tree Nuts, Sugar, Egg, Soy, Rice and Potatoes…whew, with all that’s missing, it’s amazing that they actually taste sooo good!

For the Southern Style Corn Bread mix I followed the package directions. Since I have no dairy restrictions, I used milk. The options are provided for using soy (milk substitute) and even making your own buttermilk ingredient alternative.  The same for the eggs that are called for…we carry an Egg Replacer from Orgran you could try as well.  Gluten and Casein Free Cornbread

These were wonderful and had good texture with a mild corn taste. If you wanted to add some “fire” ( I am from Texas you know!) you could try one of their own variations for Jalapeno Cheddar Corn Bread on the package directions too. This mix was quick, easy and goes really well with stews and chilis…which seems like it should be on the menu for you guys in the northeast….BBBBRRRRRR! Enjoy.

Banana Bread with a Quick and Easy Recipe

Happy Friday Everyone. It’s still cold down south and making me want some comfort food. I don’t know that there is anything better than the smell of fresh baked bread to warm up your day. Here is a really simple recipe from our great company Authentic Foods. They made this in their own kitchens and I want to share it for your’s. Get ready to take in the aroma!

Quick and Easy Banana Bread from Authentic Foods                                                                   bananabread

Servings: 16   Prep Time: 20 Minutes   Bake/Cook Time: 60 Minutes

Ingredients:

Banana Bread

1 ½ cups Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Flour

1 ½ teaspoons Baking Powder

½ teaspoon Baking Soda

¼ teaspoon Cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon Nutmeg

2 eggs

1 ½ cups mashed bananas (4 or 5 bananas)

1 cup Sugar

½ cup oil

¼ cup Chopped Walnuts (optional)

Crumb Topping (Optional)

3 tablespoons Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Flour

¼ cup Packed Brown Sugar

2 tablespoons Butter (dairy-free)

1/3 cup Chopped Walnuts

Directions:

Banana Bread

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Grease a large bread pan. Set aside. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, mashed bananas, sugar and oil. Then set this mixture aside. In a large bowl, combine dry ingredients: Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Using an electric mixer slowly add the egg mixture into the dry ingredient mixture until fully combined. Then add in the ¼ cup of walnuts, if desired. The batter will be slightly lumpy.

Pour the batter into the bread pan. Add the crumb topping on top of the batter and slightly pat the crumbs into the batter so the crumbs will bake into the bread, just a little bit. Bake the bread in the oven for 55-60 minutes. The bread is ready when you stick a toothpick or utensil in the middle of the banana bread and no batter sticks to either the toothpick or utensil. Cool for 20-30 minutes.

Crumb Topping(Optional)

In a medium bowl, combine Authentic Foods Multi-Blend Flour and Brown Sugar. Using an electric mixer, mix in the 2 tablespoons of butter. Mix until there is a course crumb consistency. Then mix in the chopped walnuts.
