Comment on Easiest GF Sourdough Starter by Chantal.

Hi Helen! I’m just seeing your questions now. Not sure what you decided to do but yes, in a pinch you could feed your starter a different gluten-free flour such as white rice flour or sorghum. I would probably choose sorghum first as it too works very well to create a GF sourdough starter.

Hi Sarah! Of course, you can! Other GF flours that work well for GF sourdough starters are sorghum flour, light buckwheat flour (or freshly milled buckwheat groats), millet, GF oat, and grain-free cassava flour. I’ve tried with many other GF flours, such as teff (great for Injera), dark buckwheat, green banana flour, etc., but those flours tend to require more attention to maintain.

Hi Moriah! After the 7 days, if you feel that you’ve achieved a good level of activity and your starter seems ready, you can store it in the fridge. Ideally, baking with some would be great but if you can’t just yet, remember to take it out of the fridge to refresh it with some flour and water at least once per week to keep it thriving. If your starter is very new, I feel it would be best to remove some starter from the jar first and then feed it. When refreshing a starter, you can leave it out at room temperature for a few hours and once you see the bubbles forming again and you know you can’t use some in a bread recipe just yet, return it to the fridge. I hope this helps.

Hi! No, no. Don’t worry, it’s ok! You could also increase the flour and water to a little more too if you want. I would keep going, I wouldn’t start over. See how it’s doing in a couple of days.

Maple Cream Bars
Hi Joanne! I don’t see why not. If you like walnuts, go for it! Pecans, hazelnuts, or sliced almonds would be equally tasty if you can consume any type of nuts. Ps. I froze some of the bars the last time I made a batch, and they are SO good to enjoy as a nice treat once in a while when the craving hits me. Especially if you can’t have traditional pecan bars/pie or butter tarts with gluten, sugar, eggs, dairy, etc., these maple bars are such a nice treat! If you do freeze some of the leftover bars, it’s best to thaw a little bit before eating or place the piece on a plate in the microwave for a few seconds.

Hi! Thank you for trying this recipe! I am not an expert at deep frying but from my experience the oil has to be hot enough or the donuts will absorb too much oil and result in greasy and soggy donuts. Ideally 350-375°F. The temperature will drop a bit once the dough is cooking. Are you cooking on a gas or electric stove? Did you use a candy thermometer to check the temperature of the oil? I mean if yours were getting too dark too fast, lower the temperature even more next time to see if it’s better.

Gluten-Free Sourdough Cinnamon Rolls
Hi! I haven’t made these in a while. I do have organic coconut milk (can) and could try a version without brown rice flour. Which GF flour is in your gluten-free starter? Tell me, when you bake grain-free, which ingredients can you consume? Do you eat buckwheat (pseudograin)? What about cassava flour, coconut flour, tiger nut flour, etc.? What about starches? Are you okay with potato starch and tapioca starch? Let me know so we can create a new version for you. What about sugar? Are you okay with coconut sugar or maple syrup?

Yeast-Free Buckwheat Blender Bread
Hi! Can I ask which brand of GF baking powder you tried? Is your batter too wet or not wet enough? And the apple? What kind did you use? Let me know so I can help you 😉
