Gluten-Free European Apple Cake

Rating: 5 stars 27
My Romanian family all make some version of this dense apple walnut cake every autumn. I think it's common to Germans, Austrians, and Hungarians too. I'm so pleased that I could almost replicate the taste and texture without wheat! Coconut flour can be substituted for almond flour. Makes a 9x13-inch pan. When cool, you can dust with confectioners' sugar if desired.

Chipas (Argentinean Cheese Bread)

Rating: 4 stars 12
These delicious, Argentinean breads are small balls of cheese bread made from tapioca starch. They are quick and very easy to make. You could even make the dough ahead of time and keep it in the freezer. If you cannot find Argentinean cheeses, Italian cheese will do just fine.

Gluten-Free Pumpkin Muffins

Rating: 4.5 stars 22
Yummy, moist gluten-free pumpkin muffins with a drizzle of icing. Our gluten-free son love these as a treat. Substitute soy milk for dairy milk, if preferred.

Blackberry Pie II

Rating: 5 stars 10
I use tapioca flour mixed with sugar to thicken the berries. The filling will thicken upon cooling, so try not to cut into pie until completely cool.
