gfJules Giveaway

We can go through life feeling sorry for ourselves because we can’t eat the foods we once loved, or we can take advantage of some of the amazing gluten-free products available to us and make those beloved food items. gfJules is one of my favorite gluten-free baking product companies. Jules really gets it and has put a lot of work into helping those following the gluten-free diet feel like they aren’t missing a thing. 

gfJules Gluten Free Flour is one of my favorite products. It can be used cup for cup in those beloved recipes that you want to enjoy now that you are gluten-free. One of my favorite ways to use gfJues Gluten Free Flour is in Carrot Cake.

    Oh yum! Carrot cake is my favorite…I might have to make it 🙂

  2. Susan Odiseosq says:

    Interesting! Think I will try the carrot cake. Not sure about the cream cheese icing since it calls for so much powdered sugar. The focus on how much to much sugar we are all consuming is resonating with me, but the cake recipe looks really good and I’m eager to try this new gf Jules gluten free flour and see how it compares to King Arthur products. Thank you.
