Make your own mix for easy and quick gluten free , dairy free muffins or cake. To make this recipe sugar free substitute 1/8 - 1/4 tsp. of stevia powder.
- 1 1⁄4 cups rice flour
- 1 cup sweet rice flour
- 1⁄2 cup tapioca flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 1⁄3 cup sugar or 1⁄8 teaspoon stevia powder
To Make Muffins
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1⁄3 cup soymilk or 1⁄3 cup water or 1⁄3 cup fruit juice
- 1⁄2 cup currants (optional) or 1⁄2 cup raisins (optional) or 1⁄2 cup nuts (optional) or 1⁄2 cup berries (optional)
- Mix all ingredients together and store in an airtight container for future use. The second ingredient is sweet white rice flour. I have tried to change it on here before. The sweet white rice flour is a bit more " glutenous than the plain white rice flour.

- 2 eggs.
- 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract.
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil.
- 1/3 cup of any non dairy liquid ( soy milk, water, fruit juice etc. ).

- 1/2 cup currents, raisins, nuts, dates or berries etc. can be folded in at this point.

- Cake - Mix as for muffins but add more sweetening ( sugar , stevia , honey etc. ).
- Eg. If you are making an orange cake use orange juice for the liquid and some orange zest.
- Spoon dough into greased 8" round cake pan.
- bake in preheated 350 F oven for 20 - 25 minute.
- Makes one 8 " round cake.
I have now made these twice and I have to say they are better than regular flour muffins! I didn't change any thing other than adding my own spices 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp cloves and 1/8 tsp nutmeg per 1 cup mix.
I have been looking for a zaar recipe that is gluten and more specifically, sweet free. I have candida and was told to avoid all sweeteners except stevia, I made these muffins and they turned out great. I added carrot juice as the liquid and some nuts and grated zuchinni. Thanks a lot!
Excellent recipe. I added extra sugar and was short some of the sweet rice flour so just added more white rice flour. I am high altitude so I used and extra tsp of baking powder and they turned out perfectly (very forgiving recipe for substitutions) Thanks for posting!
