As tempting as this gluten-free chocolate cake may look, there's no doubt that gluten-free baking can be challenging. After all, it's the gluten that gives dough it's elasticity and allows it to be leavened. Luckily, for the 1 in 133 people suffering from Celiac Disease, also known as gluten intolerance, a large number of food blogs are providing a network of helpful resources for gluten-free cooking and baking.
Karina from Gluten Free Goddess has a very thorough list of suggestions for Cooking and Baking Gluten Free. Karina has also written about Gluten-Free bread in a bread machine, a taste test for the best gluten-free brownie mix, and her Top Ten Gluten Free Products.
At Gluten Free Girl, Shauna has a long list of resources for Gluten Free cooking, plus tempting recipes. She's currently writing a narrative cookbook about her experiences learning to cook gluten-free.
Brendon from Something in Season writes a blog where all recipes are gluten-free, not for him, but for the sake of his wife who can't eat wheat or gluten. Besides being gluten-free, Brendon's recipes focus on fresh, seasonal ingredients.
Here are more gluten free blogs. (Hat tip to Elise for this list. I had been saving links for a post on gluten-free baking, but discovered these last six blogs, all new to me, from Simply Recipe's recent spotlight on Gluten Free Food Blogs. The spotlight includes a custom search engine Elise created which can be used to search gluten-free blogs.)
