Recipe: Gluten Free Brown Sugar Pecan Loaf

Gluten Free Brown Sugar Pecan Loaf


As I mentioned previously, I’m going to be baking with CUP4CUP and Bob Mill’s GF Flour for a little while. I want to see how my past recipes work with these different flours. I also want to share some recipes that don’t require a lot of gluten free flours.

Yes, I will continue coming up with recipes that use sorghum, quinoa and millet flours but sometimes a person doesn’t want to have to weigh a ton of flours, or dig out a lot of measuring cups. I really want to make gluten free baking a little bit easier for the month. Just a bit simpler!


Gluten Free Brown Sugar Pecan Loaf

Today I’m sharing a gluten free brown sugar pecan loaf and next will be a gluten free double chocolate chip coffee loaf. I also used CUP4CUP with both of these loaves and I’ve been overwhelmed with the excellent results!

  1. What is Cup4Cup flour – I’ve never heard of it. Where can I buy it?
    I love the idea of pre-measured flour mixes – I’ve tried some but they have not been successful
    Thank you for all your hard work

  2. Melissa cup4cup is a pre mixed gluten free flour substitute. It is absolutely fabulous! Everything that I have used it fir has been wonderful. You can get it at Sonoma Williams and I also think you can order it from cup4cups website.

  3. Please share the chocolate chip loaf…my son cannot have nuts. 🙂

  4. They are now stocking cup4cup in Costco and it’s dead cheap! Mind you I get regular deliveries of the fantastic gluten free flours that come from the UK or hit bulk barn and make a big batch of my own flour mixes.
