    Product Review- Gluten Free Houston Coffee Cake & Carrot Cake

    I was the very lucky recipient of some complimentary samples of some baked goods from Gluten Free Houston. Gluten Free Houston is located in Houston – I bet you didn’t pick up on that one! ;)

    Here is some more information on Gluten Free Houston & Randi Markowitz:

    Are you in search of gluten-free solutions for yourself or a family
    member? Are you in the Houston area? Then, I can help. I have
    spent the last six years developing my own hand-made gluten-free
    baked goods. When I first started out, all I came up with were
    lumps of bricks! It’s not easy to produce really good baked goods
    without the gluten protein found only in wheat, barley and rye
    flours. It is complicated and time consuming, but I have hit on a
    formula that works. Even my non gluten-free friends think everything
    is fantastic. As you probably already know, living gluten-free
    is somewhat expensive–the ingredients are very pricey, but very
    high quality. I decided that if I am going to take the time and effort
    to bake things for myself, my family members and friends who do
    not eat wheat, it might as well be the best it can be, with the best
    ingredients. It’s impossible to produce fresh gluten-free baked
    goods on a large scale. Everything has to be frozen and it’s really
    not very good. When it’s hand-made and fresh, it is fabulous. If
    you are a gluten-free person, you don’t have to have baked items
    with weird aftertastes, grainy stuff in your mouth, and that strange,
    slightly “off” taste. You can and should have the best. Bear with
    me here, because these items are not inexpensive. However, I can
    guarantee that they are much better than anything you can buy
    that is frozen, and better than any mass-produced fresh items.
    That is why I am doing it my way—very small selection of items, in
    very small quantities, that are available fresh and delicious. Otherwise,
    why bother?

    Gluten Free Houston is also on Facebook, Twitter and has a blog.

    I had the pleasure of sampling the Cinnamon Coffee Cake & Carrot Cake.

    Carrot Cake -Fabulous carrot cake muffin loaf, 12 oz., ingredients: sorghum flour, tapioca flour, cornstarch, baking soda, salt, xanthan gum, cinnamon, sugar, eggs, canola oil, buttermilk, vanilla, carrots, pineapple, coconut. Arrived a little crumbly, but that did not effect the taste. The taste was outstanding – one of the moistest cakes I have ever had. The texture was perfect and you can actually taste the chunks of pineapple in the cake. Jon & Lindsey both loved this cake, too.
