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!

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!
