twenty second secret streets

ok guys, i gotta say that the pineapple bread i made on tuesday was really, really good! i know that sounds like i’m totally patting myself on the back, but…i am. just kidding. it is super yummy, though. i used my paula deen zucchini muffin recipe as a base, and then adapted it from there.

pineapple bread
in a big ole’ bowl, mix together:
1 1/2 cups plus 1/8 cup flour
(you can also substitute with your favorite gluten-free flour mix)
1 1/4 cups sugar
(i know, it’s a lot…but it’s what makes it taste sooo good! you can use less if you want)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 cup oil
2 eggs
1 20 oz. can crushed pineapple, drained
1/4 cup juice from pineapple can

use a greased loaf pan, and bake at 350 for about an hour or till top is firm and cake tester (or fork) comes out clean. turn out of pan and let cool on a baking rack. devour.

  1. Oooh that sounds good! I have to try me some of that! I bet it would be good with canned peaches, too…

    And tonight we tried your crunchy corn starch chicken! Yum! It was a hit, and we'll definitely make it again. Remarkably, I didn't have any almond flour in the house, so added about 1/4 cup teff flour for variety. I think it worked well, but hard to know without comparing to “the original.” Thanks!!!


  2. amazing again! Hey, would you mind posting your gluten free baking mix again – or is it in here somewhere? I have been not doing wheat still. I'm kinda liking it except for the baking part. I did make your non-bake cookies this week : ) I used agave though instead of the sugar. Their consistency is a bit different but oh well.


  3. dmoms – hmm…i am going to think about how to account for the difference using agave, since it's a liquid as opposed to regular sugar…what was the consistency like? just more mushy?

    also, i use a couple gf mixes – here's one i've posted on some cookie recipes before, but also works ok with sweet breads:
    1 part teff or sorghum flour
    1 part white or brown rice flour
    1 part flax seed or almond meal

    it's not the best mix ever, but it's a simple one. i think i'll do a post soon on some different gf homemade flour mixes…some of them start to get a little complex, though. you can also just buy a pre-made baking mix like pamela's (which is my personal fave) or bob's red mill.

    wendy – this bread would be really good with peaches! now i want to try that :) glad you liked the chicken – we love it, too!


  4. oh, yes! very mushy. I still eat them though. the kids – not so much. especially in their lunch : )

    so, if you buy the mix – you don't have to buy the other ingredients like xanthan gum or whatever else?

    I did make some muffins with brown rice flour – I added an extra egg and increased the milk – they were pretty good. the kids ate them.

    I really want to make gf pizza crust. I bought a gf pizza at the bakery last week but it was $15 !! I have a awesome gf bakery near me. A loaf of bread is $7. Ouch!


  5. for baking, if you substitute a liquid sugar for a solid one, you have to account for the excess liquid somewhere else. maybe less milk? i'm not sure. you might have to play around with it a bit…

    and yeah, a store-bought gluten-free mix (like pamela's or whatever) will just maybe require an egg or some liquid, depending on what you make. i know gf is expensive, though!! but if you are serious about it, you can start to accumulate a collection of different flours over time, and then it's ok. although gf is sometimes a pain for baking :)

    the pamela's gf pizza crust is ok, but i have yet to find a truly good gf pizza crust. even the ones i've made from scratch taste kind of like cardboard :)
