My hubby just found out he’s gluten-intolerant, so I set about turning some of his fave recipes gluten-free. This recipe was originally a little cake recipe, but he always preferred these to real blueberry muffins. These are so good you can’t even tell the difference between the real recipe and the gluten-free recipe! I prefer these with finely chopped canned peaches instead of the blueberries, so I usually make 6 peach and 6 blueberry. Hope you enjoy!
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups.
Mix 1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar, almond meal, butter, flour, egg whites, and xanthan gum together in a bowl until just combined. The mixture will be slightly grainy. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups. Scatter blueberries onto batter.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Cool muffins in pan for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack. Dust with about 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar.

The best flavour of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different makers do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are bet higher in gluten, may give you a best rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which doesn’t always getting bigger as well as clear bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge 24 hours . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can work it yesterday , then finish it off the next day.
