About this Cook
I had weight loss surgery so often cook items that are high protein/low carb. Have also discovered I am gluten sensitive so am exploring gluten-free cooking/baking and have been somewhat successful.
My favorite things to cook
Baked desserts, protein-based meals such as gumbo, baked chicken and pork, grilled gf pizza and shrimp.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to make gluten-free cakes, muffins, pizza, chicken & dumplings and have my family like them too.

Gluten Free Banana Bread
I have made several gluten-free breads/cakes since going gluten-free January 2013. It takes some research and practice to get the right combination of flours. I used the gf flour recipe that already has xanthan gum in it but not all gf flour mixtures do. Read the label if you buy a pre-made mix. Xanthan gum or guar gum are absolutely necessary in this recipe. When adding the flour to the wet mixture, mix for at least a few minutes with an electric mixer, not just until mixed like the recipe says. That gets the flours/gum to work together better. I used 1/2 cup granulated sugar and 1/2 cup brown sugar in place of the turbinado and syrup. Creamed those for several minutes with margarine and 2 tsp vanilla then added eggs and 6 medium very ripe bananas. My muffins were done in 20 minutes and raised pretty well. I got 18 out of this recipe. I am very happy with how they turned out.
