gluten free recipes using cup 4 cup

gluten free zucchini chocolate chip muffins.















beauties! 
i have been trying to find the right vibe, taste, love fest inside 
a gluten free sweet that tastes a bit gluten full... 
i found this 'prada' flour called cup 4 cup at whole foods 
(doing a gig with william sonoma too) 
they market it as a replacement gluten free flour 
for real flour in any recipe: cookies, muffins, scones & more..
the price point was a bit crazy pants
thomas keller & tribe created it
i finally bought!
i want to make gf sweetie things and share it with YOU!
the cookies were more like pop overs
(anything with chocolate chips works but it was like eating a pillow)
then we tried waffles.. not so good. 
so i went into the archives to dig out my 
original zucchini muffin recipe from a century ago (ok.. 2010)
i replaced the 3 cups all-purpose flour with 3 cups (cup4cup) gf flour
and you can see the results above: 
the tasters and the test kitchen had a fun afternoon!

remember... the chips don't sink into the dough
and it's a very different feeling, texture, rhythm before the heat
but once baked...everyone seemed to love it
so i had to share it with YOU.
