Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

*This recipe was developed using alternative flours and other products labeled as "gluten-free". To date, the FDA and USDA have not defined the term "gluten-free." Therefore, to the best of our knowledge, the ingredients in our Process Cheese (example: American Process Cheese) and our natural dairy products (examples: natural cheese and butter) do not contain gluten.
**Substitute 1 teaspoon vinegar or lemon juice plus enough milk to equal 1/3 cup. Let stand 10 minutes.
Gluten-Free Flour Blend: To make flour blend, combine 2 cups rice flour, 2/3 cup potato starch, 1/3 cup tapioca flour and 1 teaspoon xanthan gum. Use appropriate amount for recipe; store remainder in container with tight-fitting lid. Stir before using.

I just made these as Thanksgiving snacks and love them! I added 1 tsp of nutmeg and 1 tsp of pumpkin spice. I accidentally left out the butter, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. They are so moist :) My brother in law (who has celiacs) loved them, my father in law and husband couldn't tell they were GF. Thanks for the recipe, it's a new favorite!!
Yum! I made it lighter on the dairy, and corn free too. I had to make about 30 muffins for my son's Thanksgiving feast at school. I found this recipe to be easy and tasty. I doubled the recipe and ended up with about 36 muffins. Note that if you are doubling, the flour blend comes up about 3/4 cup short. I used brown rice flour, not white. We are dairy sensitive, so although I used the butter to avoid corn and soy in dairy substitutes, I did make the buttermilk using rice milk and lemon, as the substitution suggests. I also used guar gum instead of xanthan gum, as xanthan is derived from corn. For this substitution, use 1 1/2 times guar for the amount of xanthan that is called for, to get the right texture. I added a few cranks of fresh ground nutmeg and about 1/2 teaspoon of organic vanilla (to avoid gluten and corn). I baked them about 18 minutes and the texture was perfect. My husband, who does not need to eat GF and loves pumpkin muffins said they were great! My son, who helped me make them, all the while claiming he "does not like pumpkin," loved them too! We'll see what the class has to say! Thanks for the recipe!
I made these last night. These are the really good. I added xanithium gum to my recipe though. They were still a tiny bit crumbly but they looked really good. Some gluten free things look...not nice. They were soft in my soft and the best textured gluten free item I have ate.
This is a wonderfu recipe!!! Wouldn't have known these were gluten-free if I hadn't made them myself. Husband who has celiac and has to eat GF loved them.
