A few good gluten-free German dessert recipes include Betty Crocker's gluten-free German chocolate brownies. Other good recipes include the German kaffee kuchen and spicy pfeffernusse cookie recipes on About.com. Many traditional German dessert recipes can easily be transformed into delicious gluten-free desserts by using gluten-free flour.
To replace traditional flour with gluten-free flour, use an all-purpose, gluten-free blend or a combination of gluten-free flours such as brown rice flour, tapioca flour, sweet rice flour and almond flour. Add approximately 3/4 teaspoons of xanthan gum and guar gum. Alternatively, use other gluten replacers such as psyllium, flax seeds or chia seeds. Using a gluten replacer helps hold the dough or batter together, increases elasticity and adds structure to the dessert.
