And, in our first guest post adoption, here is Sally B.

I love reading the ‘adopt a gluten free blogs’. It has widened my gluten free horizon and led to so many interesting recipes. This month, my first attempt, I decided to adopt Lauren of Celiac Teen. I admire her experimentation and passion for tackling complex dishes with great success. I made two recipes from her blog this month – pumpkin pancakes and Brazilian cheese bread.

The pumpkin pancakes felt seasonally appropriate and I had an excess of puree hanging around. They were a great hit with all the family, light and fluffy as described. We had them with baked apple and cheese which complemented the spices of the pancakes. The only main change to the recipe I made was to use 2/3 cup of milk, as a previous comment on Lauren’s blog found the mixture too runny. I guess it might be related to how watery the pumpkin puree is? If I did it again I would probably try even less milk maybe 1/2 cup.

The Brazilian cheese bread has intrigued me for ages – I have had a printed out copy of Lauren’s recipe lurking around for ages. It is a traditional dish made only with tapioca. The recipe worked well and creating the dough on the stove reminded me of making profiteroles. The outer crust was deliciously crunchy. I found the inside nicely aerated but perhaps a little too gelatinous and chewy for my personal taste – almost similar to rice noodles. I wonder if the recipe would work using a mixture of grains and perhaps some whole grains although that would take it away from its traditional roots.

I would like to thank Lauren for the enthusiasm and excellent dishes.
