Old Fashioned Peach Shortcakes – Gluten Free



Everything old is new again.  Cupcakes, moon pies, bacon, s’mores.  Things we didn’t think twice about and took for granted, are now all the rage in the food world.

My friend, Larry, shared his recipe for his grandmother’s shortcakes.  How could I resist a recipe from Blanche Emerald Kuning,  who was born in 1883?

To give the recipe a new twist, I decided to make it gluten free.  I don’t make many gluten-free recipes, but I thought this would be a good experiment.   I know the original recipe is great, and I was hoping the adjustments would be too.   For those of you who would love a great shortcake that isn’t gluten-free the notes in the recipe will describe the original steps and quantities.

Thank you Larry, and Thank you Blanche!


My last gluten free recipe was made with Bob’s Red Mill all-purpse baking mix.  This time I used Better Batter Mix.  The mix already had xanthan gum in it, and I added about 1/4 tsp more.





Nutmeg adds such a wonderful aroma to the shortcakes.
