Comment on Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter by Chantal.

Hi Irina! Thank you so much for your interest in my recipes! Your house is warm, but it should be fine, as I often make starters in the summer! Try to keep yours out of the direct sunlight. Feeding a starter with 1/4 cup of water and flour is a good start. You can always increase the feedings to half a cup if you find that your starter needs more food to get going. Based on 1/4 cup feedings, you should have a pretty full large jar (up to 3.5-4 cups) by the end of 7 days. The final amount will also depend on if you feed your starter a little more on day 5 or throughout the week or at any given time. Did you find my 3-page pdf to guide you along the way? It’s a more condensed version of all the instructions for this Gluten-Free Sourdough Starter recipe: bit.ly/2Rtejw4. Ps. You will have enough starter to bake a loaf at the end of the week. Usually, a GF sourdough bread recipe requires 1/2 to 1 cup. My recipes call for at least 1 cup on average. You should also have a little extra left, feed it again, and then store in the refrigerator until you are ready to bake again. Let me know if you have any more questions! Please keep me posted on your progress. You can also join my GFV Baking Facebook Group to help you troubleshoot along the way: facebook.com/groups/191987888217239

Hi Christina! Thank you for reaching out! I wouldn’t give up just yet if I were you. How does your starter mixture smell? Does it smell very strong and sour like it needs to be fed or does it just smell like wet flour? Do you by any chance have another GF flour to try other than rice? Let me know and I will reply.

If it smells really strong and sour I would pour it out, probably remove a little bit of the starter and then feed it more flour and water.

Hi! A GF flour blend will work, but using one without xanthan gum or other gums to make a GF sourdough starter is probably best. Try a smaller portion starter with the flour you have. That way, you don’t waste any 😉 Recipe: https://www.freshisreal.com/easiest-gf-sourdough-starter/

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.

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?

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 😉
