When I realised that gluten didnt quite agree with me I was pretty upset as it would be difficult to continue baking with normal flours. That led me to experiment with different gluten free flours which took quite some time till I found the right blend of flours that would mimic wheat and gluten.
Once I got the balance right, I started experimenting with recipes and found that I could successfully convert recipes to GF baking. There were plenty of disasters, I have had to throw loads of experiments gone wrong in the bin.
With practice came almost perfection, and the best compliment I get is, you cant tell its Gluten Free, so with the encouragement of the sons and the daughter in law and son no 2's girlfriend, I actually thought why not make it a sort of business..
I was never going to be the corporate goddess, I hate the corporate world and all the ass kissing that happens. I am too blunt, sarcastic and just downright naive to excel in a world where the ass kissers and ball carrying thrive. So with me being employed (from tomorrow) on a part time basis, I needed something to pump up the income... hence the GF baking and the birth of the gluten free singaporean - The facebook page

I used to be the one eating all the baking I did, which had my waistline complaining, so now as I try to make rough puff, hot water crust and short crust pastry, I need a new plan on the ingesting of said experiments.
I did give some to mum but after the last time I gave her the first attempt of
cinnamon buns ( they werent wrapped tight enough so the sugar melted and leaked out and created a burnt bottom on some) she complained that they were terrible... I may need to find volunteers that are aware these are experiments and I promise not to give them the totally gone wrong ones.....
I am also lactose intolerant, so the cream and butter in the quiches and tarts will have me running to the loo so I desperately need volunteers to eat all the stuff I bake.. any takers?
