This recipe needs one simple change to make gluten free. Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour Blend.
I thought about giving this a try with individual gluten free flours, but I decided to give it a try with the Bob’s Red Mill gluten free blend and it worked great.
I have mixed thoughts on gluten free blends. In some recipes blends just don’t work well and the individual flours give you the best result. In other recipes though blends work great. This recipe is on of those.
When it comes to gluten free flour blends Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 is my favorite overall blend.
There are other blends that work, but I find that Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 gives me the best and most consistent results in recipes, so it is the one that I keep on hand.
