HOW IT STARTED

My Story

Hello my name is Sass. I was diagnosed with Coeliac disease over 15 years ago. Back then, options were limited and I really struggled with my change to eating gluten free and finding alternatives for baked goods. 

 

I have always loved being in the kitchen so it was only natural that over the years I have sought out ingredients and ways to create delicious gluten free food. I am often told that you cannot tell my gluten free baking apart from "the normal..." so I dare you to give it go. 

Mid 2020, I was asked by my favourite gluten free flour company if I would become one of their at home test bakers. This involves confirming recipes where their flours are used. Of course I said yes! So you will see that I often reference FG Roberts in my baking. I use FG Roberts flours exclusively now because the results are consistent.

Spiced Apple Muffins

The combination of buttermilk and apple in these spiced apple muffins makes an incredibly soft and moist crumb.


I used Granny Smith apples for these muffins. They're my favourite baking apple due to their slight tartness and juiciness. This recipe makes 6 larger sized muffins or 12 regular sized.


The flour used was FG Roberts plain flour of course! You can use any bread of gluten free flour, just keep in mind that some are thirstier and you need to adjust the amount of buttermilk so the muffins are not dry.


I use pasture raised eggs that average 55gm each (minus the shell) and always at room temperature. If you are allergic to egg, try replacing the eggs with 1/4 natural greek yoghurt.
