Carol Fenster’s Recipes–Part 1

Okay, I admit, I’ve gotten carried away with Carol’s new book AND I’ve gotten a mess in the kitchen to prove it.  I’ve already made the cornbread and the Devil food cake as cupcakes, and the only reason I’ve been slowing down is that I ran out of sorghum flour!

I was so taken with the cupcakes because they looked JUST like the real thing, and the smell was just heavenly.  It’s so wonderful to be in a kitchen that smells like chocolate, isn’t it?  DH took a batch of 12 to his martial arts class, and there were 5 glutinovores present, including him.  And yet when I returned, there was just a crumb trail left and no cupcakes in sight.  I think that speaks for itself!  I did find that the recipe batter made more than 12 cupcakes, though.  I’d say it was closer to 16.

And if you do have the 1000 GF recipe books by Carol, check out the yellow cupcake recipe.  I think it was one of the quickest disappearing recipes I’ve ever made.

Cornbread overall is one of DH’s favorite foods, so I had to try it out!  I made it in cast iron skillet because I don’t have metal square pans, so that may have affected the time a bit. It was a little moister than the recipe we used to use, but we’ll be making it again soon for sure.

Stay tuned for decadent cookies and the crumb cake!  And I’ll also be giving away a bottle of Salba and picking a winner next Thursday.

About Cheryl Harris

Life played a funny trick on me. I've studied nutrition for years, and much to my surprise, found out that I could manage many of my health issues via diet. I've been GF for years, and I've got a bunch of allergies and sensitivities. But it definitely doesn't keep me from cooking, baking and enjoying my food. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I’m totally like that with cookbooks…I get a new one and start making several recipes at a time; so much fun though!! I definitely think I need to own this book…Carol Fenster is so adventurous with her recipes too, like she has SO many bread recipes! She is a brave soul for coming up with so many GF breads.

    Hey, may I please feature one of the cupcake photos on my new site, GlutenFreeFeed.com? It is kind of like Tastespotting, but GF. 🙂

    Just saw this on glutenfreefeed. You know, I’ve got Carol’s “Cooking Free” and have not made one recipe from it. Maybe I’ll have to give it a shot. Thanks for the incentive.

    I am interested to get a copy of the recipe book. I will surely apply this and make those tasty cookies and cupcakes for my kids.

    Hey Cheryl
    It’s always great to find new gluten free recipes. I am a bit of a newbie to gluten free. I have been diagnosed with atopic ecsema and I am trying a restrictive diet to see if I am intolerant to anything which might be causing my problem. This post has been a huge help.
