Gluten Free Danish

"WOW! I just made these delicious danish's. Not only were they fabulous, but they were really quick and easy to make!! Although they don't have a flaky pastry taste like the gluten containing danish's, they have their own little marvalous taste.You won't be able to eat just one! You can make these with your favourite jam. I used a tablespoon of raspberry jam on each danish and drizzled some icing on top."

    These were good. I do believe this is a Roben Ryberg recipe and most of her recipes have too much xanthan gum for my taste so I reduced it by half. The danish did spread more but they were very good. I would use butter next time and maybe add some vanilla because it did seem like something was missing in flavor. I used super fine thai rice flour and millet for all the cornstarch and potato starch and they were very tender. This recipe is very forgiving if you have to substitute starches or flours.

    As far as a GF Danish, these are pretty good. I am not the one with the intolerance so am trying different things for my DD for Christmas when she's home. They spread quite a bit and the jam fell to bottom but all in all for a GF recipe, I think she's going to like them.

    Yummy! And so easy! I made these a couple of weeks ago as a treat for my husband and they were so well-received that they were requested for Christmas breakfast. I made them into cheese danishes with some sweetened Neufchatel cheese and a dollop of blueberry or strawberry fruit spread. So good!

    Excellent recipe! I found the danishes a bit too big for me, so next time I will use about half of the dough for each to make them smaller. I also found that spraying my hands and fingers with non-stick cooking spray helped me for them without making a huge mess.

    I made this and is is wonderful. Since I can not handle corn I used equal amounts of arrowroot and it worked just great. I also used rapid rise yeast. This one will be on my company list from now on.


********************************************* My name is Ashley and I live in Ontario. I am 21 years old and have recently been diagnosed with Celiac Disease.This means that I must maintain a strict gluten free diet, meaning that I can not eat anything with the slightest amount of wheat, rye, oats, or barley.I have a wonderful boyfriend who I love dearly that is so supportive and understanding of my disease. I don't know what I would do without him. I also have a severe peanut & nut allergy, so cooking is quite a challenge at times.Some of my favourite things to do are cooking, scrapbooking, baking,reading, knitting, crocheting, and watching movies. I have just started to get the hang of this tricky gluten free diet. It really is ALOT harder than it seems.But however, I am determined to make the best of it. I very much enjoy cooking and baking, so I have been buying every gluten free cookbook I can get my hands on and every moment I get, I try to test out some of these new recipes. However frustrating and difficult it's been trying to experiment with all these new flours and ingredients, it has been alot of fun, and everytime I find a good reipce, it makes it all worth it. I want to find as many wonderful and delicious gluten free recipes as I can, and post them all on this site. I know how hard it is when you are first diagnosed, and I want to help others who have recently been diagnosed or just others that have celiac disease that need some great gluten free recipes. Celiac disease is something that we have to live with everyday, so it's important that we make the best of it.For sure at least one good thing has come from having Celiac Disease, I have become a better cook and have truly cherished the moments that I spend in the kitchen. All the recipes that I post on this site I have made and I have found to be very good! They are all gluten free! Some of the recipes use special ingredients that you can buy at specialty health stores, and some of them are recipes that you can make with ingredients bought right at your local grocery store. My recipes that use special flours etc. are named starting with gluten free [ex. Gluten Free French Bread], and the recipes that use everyday ingredients end with the word gluten free in brackets [ex. Blushing Apples (Gluten Free)]I hope that you enjoy all of them as much as I have.Cheers! <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting">
