Welcome to Harriet’s Bakery, Newton MA — Delicious and Gluten-Free

JUST ADDED ANOTHER DATE FOR WAYLAND — FEBRUARY 18 — HOPE TO SEE YOU THEN

MAJOR CHANGES TO THE KITCHEN…
THERE IS A RISK OF CROSS-CONTAMINATION WITH WHEAT FLOUR IN THE KITCHEN…

OCCASIONALLY wheat flour will be used in the kitchen, although all products made for sale will continue to be made with gluten-free ingredients. All equipment will remain solely for use in making gluten-free treats. There could, however, be wheat flour in the air. The counters will be wiped down, but for individuals with celiac disease or extreme gluten or wheat sensitivities, this may not be sufficient.

 

Please inform us of any allergies when ordering
All products are gluten-free and most freeze well.

Gluten-free and delicious – is that possible? YES. I was known among friends and relatives on both coasts for my wonderful brownies. It was the one recipe that I never shared, thinking that, some day, I might start a brownie-baking business. Well, in 2012, I decided to create a delicious, gluten-free fudgy brownie. Why? Because good friends had been diagnosed with celiac disease and were no longer able to eat my ‘glutenous’ ones. The rest of their family could, which didn’t seem fair, because there was nothing for sale that was the equal of mine.

I educated myself about gluten-free flours and created blends to use in recipes that I had been making for decades. It took some work, but I have been told that I have succeeded. The flour mixture I use in almost all recipes is a combination of white rice flour, potato starch and tapioca flour, to which I add a little xanthan gum. Most recipes are recipes I have been making for years; the only difference is the flour substitution.

My first round of tasters has always been people who are not gluten-free. If products did not meet with their approval, I went back to the mixing bowl. At this point, I have more than 30 products and I love to see the amazed reaction of people who taste the fudgy brownies, cookies, muffins, pies, etc. when they are told that all of my products are gluten-free.

I hope you will agree.
