Helpful Hints: Volume-to-Weight Conversion Chart for Gluten-Free FloursPosted: December 20, 2011
This mightbe the best discovery I’ve made in the complicated land of gluten-free baking. To be honest, I’m not sure who to credit with its compilation, I always googled “gluten-free flour conversion” and this would be the first link to pop up. I didn’t even bother to bookmark it. So imagine my surprise and despair as I set up to bake 7 types of Christmas cookies (that became 18 DOZEN cookies–more on that later), typed in my google search, clicked the link and…
An error page opened. A scary “web content cannot be found” error page and I spiraled into a mild panic and haphazardly googled to try to find another route to this Flour Conversion Chart. No dice. I managed to make it through cookie baking by finding one or another flour’s weight-to-cup ratio and doing far too much math.
But I had one last drop of hope remaining and today, I googled one last time…
A true Christmas Miracle occurred. I found a copy of my beloved chart on Autumn Makes And Does. I saved it, printed it out, and jumped for joy in that order. I’m not taking any more chances. And, I am sharing the love and reposted the chart here. Use it. Love it. Print it out immediately and keep it out of harm’s way.
And buy a kitchen scale. The only reason I didn’t run out crying to the nearest kitchen-gadget-carrying-retail-store is that I think I’m getting one for Christmas. I am slowly becoming a true believer in baking by weight, but all this grams-to-cups conversion is making my head spin.
*Please note: this chart is not my original work, nor am I claiming it as such. Just sharing the wealth.
Be on a look out for the Christmas cookie round-up: Almond Slice Cookies, Chocolate-Peppermint Biscotti, Gingerbread Cookies, Lemon Tea Cookies, Turtle Cookies, Coconut Macaroons, and Easy “Twix” bars–All Gluten-Free 🙂
