Day off + Night Shift + Fall = BAKING!
Since I’m off the wheat, I’ve had to learn how to bake again, which is an adventure! I’ve definitely found some delicious GF baking tips (and “clean eating”) – such as using black beans to make brownies and cupcakes! who knew?
Tonight, I’m trying a cornbread recipe replacing the flour with a gf flour mix, I didn’t do anything special to the amounts, but did substitute the buttermilk with goat’s milk yoghurt and greek yoghurt…it’s in the oven right now. 🙂 I shall post on how it goes.
here is the recipe:
instead of cracklings and fat, I used a tablespoon of veggie oil and didn’t put anything in place of the cracklings. finger crossed!
I recently made black bean cupcakes using more or less the following recipe:
instead of cake form, I used cupcakes and baked for 18-20 minutes and they tested clean. I also used 3/4 cup sugar 1/4 splenda, and all in my blender. It was amazing. The clean-up especially. In a couple cupcakes I put in a few chocolate chips, oh lord. awesome. They are dense little cakes, but fabulous.
Ok, I’ll post the results of my experiments soon!!
