GF "beer" batter recipe for Fish and chicken


I have used this recipe before for my "non beer" battered fish dinner. Today I plan to use this recipe for chicken tenders. We'll see how this turns out.
* INGREDIENTS
Oil for Frying (Use an oil designed for high heat frying, preferably peanut or coconut oil)
2 pounds fresh fish fillets or chicken
1 cup gluten-free all purpose flour mix - preferably without xanthan gum or guar gum
(I used Bob's Red Mill All Purpose GF Baking Mix)
1 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon GF baking powder
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon cayenne powder
1 teaspoon GF garlic powder
1 teaspoon GF onion powder
1 teaspoon salt
12 ounce bottle of gluten-free beer OR  I used 12 ounces of club soda. 
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 15 minutes

*PREPARATION

Combine cornstarch, gluten-free all purpose flour, baking powder, cayenne pepper, sugar, garlic powder, onion powder, salt and pepper in a large, plastic zip lock bag. I used a mixing bowl.
Shake the bag to thoroughly mix the dry ingredients. Pour this mixture into a medium sized bowl.
Add gluten-free beer or club soda and mix until the batter is smooth and not too thick or too thin. Add more liquid if the batter is too thick.
1. Dip fish/chicken fillets in batter, making sure both sides are coated. Hold above the bowl to let excess batter drip off.
2. Fry in hot oil until golden brown.

Reminder: Always make sure your work surfaces, utensils, pans and tools are free of gluten. Always read product labels. Manufacturers can change product formulations without notice. When in doubt, do not buy or use a product before contacting the manufacturer for verification that the product is free of gluten.

Hough Bakery - butter cookies

Hough Bakery By Gail Greenberg&Diane Rolfe Hough Bakery was an integral part of me and my family's lives, (most people in Cleveland for that matter) I was heartbroken when they closed. I have always remembered the cookies and doughnuts from this magical bakery. Their products were like nothing I had ever had before (and it was extra magical because I was so little/young) I have been searching for about 30 years for something similar - no luck... but, thank goodness there are a few recipes floating around the internet! Unfortunately even with Archie's being open, my food afflictions will not allow me to enjoy those old time favorites. Luckily, converting is what I do and that's what this site is about so I will switch some things around and see how it turns out! The recipe below is just ONE of my all time favorites, please enjoy! Memories of a signature blue-and-white, string-tied cake box filled with a streusel coffee cake, hot cross buns, sticky pecan rolls, coconut cho…
