If you have any hints you would like to share about cooking and living gluten free, we would love to share those also. Email us with your story.

Authentic Foods is Superfine!

Superfine Brown Rice Flour is stone-milled from U.S. #1 California medium-grain rice - the best grain size for gluten free baking. Make bakery goods without the grittiness associated with most rice flours. You will find that I use this flour in many of my recipes. It has become one of the essentials in my gluten free pantry. It’s a good multipurpose flour that combines well with most other flours and truly is not gritty like other white or brown rice flours you find.

Authentic Foods has a great website, easy to navigate and contains a wealth of information about their products and where to find them.

Chewy Gluten Free Brownies!

4 oz Unsweetened Baking Chocolate (not cocoa)
14 Tablespoons Butter (1 stick & 6 Tablespoons)
3 Eggs 2 Cups Sugar
2 teaspoons Vanilla
2/3 Cup Superfine Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Tapioca Starch
1/2 teaspoon
Xanthan Gum
1/2 teaspoon salt

Preheat oven to 325°
Generously grease a 9 X 9 pan.

In a medium size bowl, melt chocolate and butter together for 2 minutes in the microwave. Stir until all the chocolate is melted. Whisk in sugar and vanilla. Add dry ingredients and stir with a large spoon or spatula. Scraping sides and bottom frequently, fold and stir until all dry ingredients are completely incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.

Bake 40 to 50 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out mostly clean without any wet batter on it. Brownies are fudgy so some particles may stick to the toothpick. Don’t overbake. Cool completely in pan and cut into squares. Serve by as plain Brownies or as Brownie Ala Mode for a real treat!
