Top 22 Recipes of 2022

See if your favorite recipes from Let Them Eat Gluten Free Cake made the cut in 2022. These are the top 22 of ’22!

collage of 22 top recipes of 22.

How was your 2022? As always, to me it feels like it absolutely flew by. Other than the economy (I’m talkin to you, $5 pounds of butter, UGH!), I had a wonderful year! My daughter’s Disney wedding was truly magical and was the highlight of my year (and life, aside from my kids being born and marrying my husband). There was no wedding we’ve ever been to (or will be to in the future) that will ever top it.

The ceremony itself was at the Wedding Pavilion and was absolutely gorgeous and perfect. The reception was held at the Italy Pavilion at Epcot, on the water. The food was incredible (as always at Disney–mine was gluten free of course!). But being able to watch the fireworks show (Harmonious) in our own private area without fighting for the best view amidst a sea of people was just beyond words. Many of the groom’s family had never been to Disney World and they were just BLOWN AWAY by the fireworks show, among everything else.

Mickey and Minnie, though, were the best excitement of the night. Out of the hundreds of pictures the amazing photographers took, I think this one below is my absolute favorite! My daughter’s expression when she sees Minnie is just a small glimpse of the happiness and memories that will last forever in all our minds of the BEST.DAY.EVER!!

  • I am 76. My sister…same genetic pool, is 65. We have both been fighting this celiac for years & falling off the wagon. Apparently we won’t have to any more. I am so excited to surprise her with these recipes. I will keep you apprised …..dumm dum dummm dum…can she do it?

  • I’ve been diagnosed w/ Celiac three years and I so appreciate your sharing these wonderful recipes! It is all so tasty and doesn’t taste grainy like the GF recipes I used to try before finding your website.

    Question – can we just substitute
    your GF flour mix for any regular flour in cakes? and then do we leave out the baking powder? Any other adjustments?
    Thanks so much!

  • My husband is recently diagnosed with Celiac and our crash course on gluten free eating at the grocery store yielded poor results – aweful tasting and expensive. Your recipes and videos are a godsend. I also have the America’s Test Kitchen GF cookbook but your website is extensive. Many thanks for sharing your expertise. Greatly appreciated.

  • I made your pizza dough using ground psyllium, and when I lifted the lid of the bowl I got the shock of my life. It was the oddest shade of lavender. What on earth did I do wrong? It smells and feels like your usual dough, but lavender colored….

    • I’ve heard that some ground psyllium can cause a weird shade. I always use whole psyllium husks, which never give a different hue so I haven’t experienced this myself. What brand of ground psyllium did you use?

      • The brand I used is “It’s Just Psylium Husk Powder”. Without a single doubt, this was the very best GF pizza crust EVER! It puffed up, was both crispy and chewy and the next day was just as delicious. The odd lavender color baked out so it looked “normal”. Thank you ever so much for never believing that good enough is good enough.

  • Just recently found your website and can’t wait to try some of the several recipes I have printed out. I am 78 years young and so pleased to see a young person with such ambition and knowledge willing to share with everyone. Thank You!
