You Don't Need Flour To Bake These Delicious Desserts
No flour? Bake these desserts instead!
If you, too, were bitten by the baking bug that many took as their new hobby during the quarantine, you probably experienced a few dilemmas.
Baking ingredients were high in demand and many times, baking essentials such as flour, baking powder, and even eggs ran short of supply for short periods of time before it was restocked.
Running out of flour can crush any baking project you may have since most baking recipes require flour. Thankfully, there are baking recipes that can still satisfy your need to bake something delicious.
Here are flourless baking recipes that result in fantastic desserts that you should try:
1 Flourless Chocolate Cake
Craving a chocolate cake and not having flour can be a downer. The good news is that you do not need any flour to make this indulgent chocolate cake.
Also known as a torte, this cake is made of lots of eggs which gives it a fantastic rise in the oven. What gives it body is the chopped nuts combined with the eggs.
The melted chocolate, sugar, and butter give it its intense flavor.
What's brilliant about this cake is that it's a no-fail cake. This cake is meant to fall or sink after it cools just like many egg-risen cakes such as chiffon and sponge cakes. However, the beauty of the torte is that its crackly top hides the luscious fudgy interior.
You'll have to wait for this cake to cool before digging in to experience the irresistible nature of this cake.
2 Flourless Salted Caramel Cake
If you're more into caramel than you are with chocolate, this salted caramel version of the chocolate torte should be perfect!
Salted caramel is easy to make if you have the ingredients but if not, you can always buy it at the store.
You can even swap it for dulce de leche for an extra creamy and luscious caramel that's milkier. Just season with a pinch or two of salt for that delicious contrast of flavors.
3 Flourless Brownies Recipe
Flour isn't the only ingredient that can hold a cake up! In this unique recipe for brownies, beans are what give it its dense creamy texture.
With the chocolate to mask the taste of the beans, no one needs to know that the fudgy bites are not made with flour.
4 Banana Oatmeal Pancakes Recipe
Bananas are plentiful all year long and super tasty when allowed to naturally sweeten over time. It's a fabulous food pairing with oatmeal and when combined, it makes a thickened mixture that does not need any flour to form into these moist flourless pancakes.
5 Dark Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies Recipe
There are many cookie recipes that use oatmeal as one of its main ingredients and some of these are also no-bake cookies. However, you won't get the same thick chewy cookies with that tender crumb with those recipes. Instead, try this version that uses oatmeal as the flour.
You get chunky cookies with chocolate chunks that won't melt when you stir them into the batter.
