Gluten-Free Vegan Baking
This cake has just a light banana flavor combined with fragrant vanilla. The banana helps add stability and moistness, so don’t leave it out to make a vanilla-only cake. It is such a subtle flavor that is most lovely, and the cake is fluffy and moist, perfect for any special occasion.

These cookies are as simple to make as they are beautiful. Use any flavor of preserves you’d like in these…. I happen to really love the amber glow of the apricot preserves. A thicker jam or fruit preserve is key to having a uniform color puddle in your cookies. Sprinkle with a touch of confectioners sugar for the ultimate eye-popper.

I was inspired to create this pizza crust after attending a gluten-free baking class at the Culinary Institute of America. I had tried packaged gluten-free pizza mixes with allergen-free substitutions, and I wasn’t completely happy with any of them. Most of them used yeast and required a rise cycle. They took too long to prepare and were just a little too hard to sink your teeth into. The pizza crust we made in Chef Coppedge’s class also used yeast and still required some rising time, but he did something I had never seen before: He taught us how to form individual pizza slices, using a pastry bag to spread the dough on a baking sheet. more→

This delicious gluten-free apple pie is perfect for winter holiday fare. And because it’s so easy to make, it’s a nice way to lighten your load when you’ll be doing a lot of other cooking. Dates balance the tartness of Granny Smith apples beautifully, but you can make endless variations on this pie by choosing almost any fruit that’s in season and pairing it with whatever dried fruit seems appealing.
