Baking Day

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 20, 2008

Money Saving Mom is hosting a “baking day” link up today, so I thought I’d chime in since I’m been baking more lately! Here are the 2 recipes I’ve been using…

Mini Muffins
1 cup rice flour (or wheat flour)
2 T canola oil
2 T appleasuce
1/3 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup of banana OR grated apple OR pumpkin OR squash (NOT ALL!)

Recently I have baked 2 batches of “apple”, 1 batch of “banana nut”, 1 batch of “pumpkin chocolate chip“, and will do 1 batch of “butternut squash” today or tomorrow. I am mostly using these mini muffins to send with R to preschool for his snack. (Sadly all the preschool snacks are “processed”…I was sending his snack before we changed to Gluten Free, and will continue to send snacks in!) I am finding that “mini” muffins are perfect for little mouths, and that the GF muffins are tastier when they are tiny! I also like this recipe because it only uses 1 cup of rice flour, so that helps keep the cost down. (I know that rice flour is on sale at Kroger for 2 more weeks…so if you are GF or know someone who is…now would be a good time to stock up :)

I have also made 2 batches of these yummy GF chocolate chips cookies! See my cost comparison here!

Happy Baking and Thanksgiving Feast preparation everyone! Head on over and let Crystal know what you’ve been baking this week! Don’t forget about the “Thanksgiving on a Budget” series…Links are in the sidebar!

next time I’m in India remind me to stock up on rice flour for you… super cheap!
