Patrick's Olive and Herb Artisan Bread

posted 2023 Apr by Patrick Auger

This Italian inspired loaf is amazing with some dipping oil. Servings 1 loaf Prep Time 180 to 480 Cook Time 60


420g Artisan Baker's Blend

474g warm water 110 to degrees F

4 Tablespoons sugar or honey

1 Tablespoon ( 1 ½ package) or 11g Active Dry Yeast (See note below)


1 Tablespoon ( 1 ½ package) or 11g Instant or Rapid Yeast

1 1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup or 56g Olive Oil

1 1/2 tablespoons fresh rosemary

1 1/2 tablespoons dried Herbs de Provence

4.5 ounces black olives (sliced)


** If Using Active Dry Yeast **: Into the warm liquid, add the active dry yeast and the honey or sugar. Allow 5 – 10 minutes for the yeast to bloom. Once it has, proceed with the recipe. DIRECTIONS: Into the bowl of a stand mixer, add Better Batter Artisan flour. Add all remaining ingredients except for the olives. Mix with the hook attachment. Begin on low to combine then increase to high speed for 6-8 minutes until dough is cohesive and fluffy. Add in your chopped olives and mix on low speed for 1 minute. The dough will appear wet. Don’t worry, after the next step (hydration) it will be perfect to work with. Remove dough from the bowl onto a board. Bring the dough together. Cover with plastic wrap and allow dough to hydrate/rest for 45 minutes. On a floured surface, knead the dough a few times adding only enough flour to keep the dough from sticking to the surface or your hands. Do not use the heels of your hands as in standard kneading. Form into a loaf shape. Line an 8 inch round or oval proofing basket or bowl with a dish towel. Dust with flour to avoid the dough from sticking to the towel. Place the loaf in the prepared proofing basket or bowl. Fold the remainder of the towel over the loaf to cover. Place loaf into refrigerator and cold proof overnight 8-12 hours, or proof dough for 90 mins in a warm place until it is doubled in size. Preheat the oven to 475° Fahrenheit. If you are using a pizza stone, baking steel, or an inverted baking sheet, preheat it for about 45 mins before baking. Sprinkle a small amount of flour onto a work surface. Carefully turn the dough upside down onto the surface. Score the loaf with a serrated knife or razor/lame. Baking: Using baking stone/steel or cookie sheet: Place loaf onto the hot baking stone/steel or cookie sheet. Be careful not to touch the pan since it is very hot. Place 4 ice cubes onto stone/steel or cookie sheet to create steam. Using a Dutch oven Remove the preheated Dutch oven and gently place loaf inside. Add 3 ice cubes to create steam. Place covered Dutch oven in oven. For both methods, bake loaf for 25 minutes. Then, reduce temperature to 350° for 45 minutes. If using a Dutch Oven remove lid when temp is lowered. If loaf begins to brown too much, tent with foil. The loaf is baked when it reaches an internal temp of 210°. Remove the loaf from the oven. Transfer loaf to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before cutting. *Please note that cooling could take 3-4 hours. Enjoy!

Patrick Auger's Famous Bread Machine Loaf

posted 2023 Apr by Naomi Poe

One of the best recipe developers and bakers I know is Patrick Auger, who works tirelessly for nothing more than the love he has for our community to create delicious baked goods. This recipe is a result of months of testing that Patrick undertook when he heard me casually mention that I couldn’t find a good bread machine recipe that worked consistently. He wanted to bless us, so he figured out exactly what was necessary to make a consistent, pillowy, and moist bread machine loaf. I am so blessed to have customers and friends like him. I hope you enjoy this recipe!


Add the ingredients to your bread maker in the order in which they are listed.

Wet ingredients:
2 c whole milk or dairy free milk at 110° F (I use rice milk or almond milk)
2 large eggs, beaten
¼ c vegetable oil
1 tsp apple cider vinegar

Dry ingredients:
560g ORIGINAL BLEND: BETTER BATTER GLUTEN FREE FLOUR+ 10 g Psyllium husk powder (omit if using Artisan blend)



¼ c sugar
1 Tbsp baking powder
2 tsp salt

10 g rapid rise yeast (you must use rapid rise)


Add ingredients to the pan of the bread machine in the order listed above. Securely place pan in the bread machine.

If you have an updated bread maker with a gluten free setting, choose it and set it for one knead cycle, no punch down, and your desired crust color (light, medium, or dark). I usually use light or medium.

If you don’t have a gluten free setting, program the machine for White Bread, 1.5 pound loaf, and your desired crust color: light, medium, or dark.

If your bread maker is not programmable, choose the Quick White Bread setting.

When the kneading cycle begins, use a rubber spatula to scrape down the sides and bottom of pan to help incorporate the flour.

Once it is finished kneading the dough, I like to take the paddle out of the bread maker then flatten the top of the dough with a wet rubber spatula. Then shut the lid to your bread maker and let the cycle finish.

After it is done baking, the bread’s internal temperature should read about 210°F. If not, set your bread maker on bake for about 15 more minutes, or place it in a 325° F oven for about 15 to 20 additional minutes. Make sure that you preheat your oven before the bread machine cycle finishes just in case it’s not fully baked.

Once the bread’s internal temperature reaches 210°F, the bread is ready to be taken out of the bread pan and placed on a cooling rack.

Let cool at least 4 hours before cutting.

Patrick's French-Style Quick Baguettes

posted 2023 Apr by Patrick Auger


Oui, they truly are that good! Patrick wanted to bring some amazing inspiration to our customers with these loaves. He developed this recipe for our customers using both of our amazing flour blends. There are 2 quicker versions for our customers needs without a sponge, so they could make our breads faster !! Baker’s note : if using Artisan Flour, loaves might be a whole grain texture and color. Servings 2 loaves Prep Time 30-40 Cook Time 35-450


7 g instant yeast

15 g sugar

2 1/4 cups warm water 105-110°F

1 Tablespoon salt

490 g ORIGINAL BLEND: Better Batter Gluten Free Flour 15g whole psyllium or 10 g powder psyllium


490 g ARTISAN BLEND: GUM/RICE FREE GLUTEN FREE FLOUR (Baker’s note : if using Artisan Flour, bagels might be a whole grain texture and color. flour for dusting work surface and working with the dough.



Mixing Into the bowl of a stand mixer add the Artisan Baker’s Blend Flour, or Better Batter Original blend and 15 g whole psyllium husk or 10g psyllium husk powder or 5 g glucomannan Add all remaining ingredients. Using the paddle attachment of a stand mixer, mix to combine on low. Increase to medium speed (#6 on Kitchen aid mixer) for approx. 6-8 minutes until dough is cohesive and fluffy. SHAPING Preheat the oven to 475° F. Put the dough onto a lightly floured board or counter. Divide the dough into 3 equal portions and Stretch the dough pieces into 15" to 18" long loaves, and place them on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet; or into a lightly greased baguette pan. Sprinkle each loaf with BB flour or artisan Score 4 diagonal slashes down each baguette with a lame, razor, or sharp knife. Spritz the loaf with water, or brush them with water. Cover with oiled plastic wrap or damp dish towel. Allow to rise in warm location until almost doubled (about 30 to 35 minutes). Time to proof will depend on your kitchen, it can take up to 60 minutes in cool house Optional: While the loaves are proofing, place an additional baking steel or pizza stone on the bottom rack and heat for 45 minutes. This will be used for adding ice cubes to create steam in your oven. The steam will allow the crust to be pliable and stretchy during baking. Without the steam, your dough will cook too quickly on the exterior, and it will not rise sufficiently. BAKING Once the oven and the optional steel stone are heated, place the loaves (on their baking sheet) on the middle rack of the preheated oven. Immediately spraying water from a spray bottle into the oven 2 or 3 times during the first 10 minutes to aid in creating the crust. After 5 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 375°F and bake for an additional 30-35 minutes. The loaves are done when they reach an internal temp of 210°F. Remove the loaves from the oven. Transfer loaves to a cooling rack and allow to cool completely before cutting, about 4 or so hours. Enjoy!

Better Batter Pancake & Biscuit Mix Pie Crust

posted 2023 Apr by Naomi Poe

The is an easy pie crust that will do in a pinch when you don’t have time or ingredients to bake a crust from scratch. Because of the slightly sandy nature and very delicate texture of the crust, you will find this crust is more appropriate as a single crust bottom for custard pies or as a topping for meat pies (like our Chicken and Cider pie!)
This recipe makes one crust.

1 c (4oz or 113g) Better Batter Gluten Free Pancake and Biscuit Mix
1/4 c shortening, butter or dairy free margarine
3 Tbsp Boiling water

Cut shortening, butter or margarine into the Better Batter Pancake and Biscuit Mix.
Pour boiling water over the mixture, stirring vigorously, until dough comes together in a soft ball (about 30 seconds).

On a floured rolling mat, sheet of plastic wrap, or well floured tea towel (NOT terry towel), roll out to about 8-9 inches. Gently flip onto pie pan or top of casserole. Bake as directed in recipe.

Alternately, push/pat into pie shell without rolling out.

Bright and Tangy Lemon Bars

posted 2023 Apr by Patrick Auger

This great recipe is as bright and sunny as the springtime or summer sunshine! Sweet and tangy, these bars are also dairy and corn free. Originally published July, 2020. Revised and edited May 2022. Servings 12 servings Prep Time 90 Cook Time 35-45



1 cup Earth Balance Soy Free Baking Stick

1 cup confectioners' sugar

2 1/2 cups (350 g) ARTISAN BLEND: Gum/Rice Free Gluten Free Flour or ORIGINAL BLEND: Better Batter Gluten Free Flour

1/2 teaspoon salt


4 large eggs or 3/4 cup (150 grams) aquafaba for egg free

1 teaspoon baking power

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 cup (140 g) ARTISAN BLEND: Gum/Rice Free Gluten Free Flour or ORIGINAL BLEND: Better Batter Gluten Free Flour

2 1/4 cups granulated sugar

1 1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice

Zest of 6 lemons, finely grated

Confectioner's sugar for dusting


Line a 9×9 inch baking pan with parchment paper, leaving a 3-inch overhang on all sides.

In a standing electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat Earth Balance and confectioners' sugar until fluffy. Add in flour and salt into bowl; mix on low speed until combined. Transfer dough to prepared pan and press evenly into bottom of the pan using the back of a measuring cup; it should be about 1/4 inch thick. Transfer prepared pan to refrigerator; chill until firm, about 30 minutes.

While pan is chilling, preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Transfer chilled baking pan to oven and bake until crust is golden brown, about 20 minutes. If crust appears to be browning unevenly, rotate pan.

Meanwhile, whisk together eggs or egg substitute, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour and sugar. Add lemon juice and zest into the bowl of flour and sugar mixture, then whisk to dissolve granulated sugar. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and whisk until well combined and smooth.

When the crust is golden brown, pull out oven rack and evenly pour filling mixture directly over hot crust. Place pan back into oven. Reduce oven temperature to 300 degrees F and bake until center is set, about 30 to 40 minutes.

Remove baking pan from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool. Let lemon bars cool completely before covering and transferring to refrigerator until chilled. Best results will be obtained by cooling overnight.

Sift confectioners sugar over the top of the squares, if desired, then cut into squares and serve.

Pizza Margherita (Vegan)

posted 2023 Apr by Naomi Poe

One of the great classic pies of Italy, pizza Margherita is traditionally a stunning combination of fresh tomato, basil and mozzarella cheese. Use your favorite non-dairy cheese or try our mild, homemade version. For authenticity try to use fresh basil.


2 cups warm water 110°F

1 tbsp yeast (1 package)

1 tbsp sugar

2 1/2 cups 350 g ORIGINAL BLEND: Better Batter Gluten Free Flour or ARTISAN BLEND: Gum/Rice Free Gluten Free Flour

1/2 cup cornmeal

1/2 tsp salt

2 tbsp olive oil

1/4 cup each: finely chopped fresh oregano and Vegan Parmesan cheese


1 recipe Dairy Free Mozzarella

1 handful fresh basil leaves

3 small Italian tomatoes, very ripe

1 or 2 cups of marinara, pizza, or tomato sauce

Top crusts with 1/4 to 1/2 cup marinara sauce, then scatter 3 oz. cheese over the top of each pizza. Top with tomatoes and basil and either bake or grill over medium high heat for another 5-6 minutes.

Margaret Batterton's Hamantaschen cookies -ORIGINAL BLEND

posted 2023 Apr by Patrick Auger

These fruit filled cookies are a traditional treat for Jewish families associated with the Purim holiday. The name refers to Haman, the villain in the story of Queen Esther from the Old Testament. The pastry used for the cookies is folded over the fruit filling to create a representation of Haman's 3-cornered hat. But you don't have to be Jewish to enjoy these sweet treats!

Chilling the shaped cookies for 15 minutes before baking helps them keep their shape. They can be served with or without a simple powdered sugar glaze. The delicious fruit filling in this recipe is from pop tart filling recipe created by Chef Alina. Servings Yields: 4 dozen Prep Time 120 Cook Time 45274


Cookie 6 Tbsp (85g) unsalted butter at room temperature 2/3 cup (70g) vegetable shortening 3⁄4 cup (149g) granulated sugar 3⁄4 tsp salt 2 Tbsp (28g) lemon zest 1 tsp vanilla 1 Tbsp lemon juice 3 1⁄2 cups (420g) Better Batter Original Flour Blend 3 Tbsp (21g) cornstarch 2 tsp baking powder 1⁄4 cup heavy whipping cream 1 large egg plus 1 egg white (reserve the yolk) Filling 1 1⁄2 cups pure fruit, preserves or jam (not jelly) 2 Tbsp cornstarch 2 Tbsp cold water


Beat together the butter, shortening, sugar, salt, lemon zest, vanilla, and lemon juice until light and fluffy. Add the flour, cornstarch, and baking powder and mix. Add heavy whipping cream and egg with egg white and mix until a cohesive dough forms. Divide the dough in half. Wrap it well and refrigerate for at least 1 hour. It can be refrigerated overnight. While the dough is chilling, make the filling. In a small saucepan, mix the cornstarch with the cold water. Add the jam. Bring the mixture to a boil and simmer for 2 minutes. Continue stirring while it simmers. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool. (Chilling the filling allows it to set and makes it easier to work with.) Shaping Preheat the oven to 375°F. Prepare several parchment lined or greased cookie sheets. Working with one half of the dough at a time, roll the dough onto a floured surface. Make a rectangle 16” x 18”, approximately 1/8” to 1/4” thick. Cut the dough into circles with a 3” round biscuit or cookie cutter. (Smaller makes it more challenging to get the correct shape. Slightly larger is fine.) Place the circles on the prepared baking sheets. Add only 1 teaspoon of filling in the center of each circle. Mix the reserved egg yolk with 1 Tbsp water and brush around the edges of each circle. This allows the dough to stick together. Bring 3 of the “sides” of each circle together to make a 3-cornered “hat”. Pinch the edges together to seal. Freeze the shaped cookies for 15 minutes. Baking Bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly browned on the bottom and edges. Transfer them to a wire rack to cool. Add a simple powdered sugar glaze if desired. Cookies may be frozen.

Flour Tortillas

posted 2023 Apr by Naomi Poe

Flour tortillas are versatile and easy to make, if you have a griddle or a non-stick pan. Use them as the basis for many Mexican dishes or to create easy bread wraps. The secret to keeping these pliable is the increased fat content and the brief cooking time. These are best eaten and most pliable the day they are made, but you can refresh them in a microwave in a pinch.

Lemon Poppyseed/Chia Muffins

posted 2023 Apr by Naomi Poe

Naomi is always trying to think up with great, creative ways to make her family’s favorite recipes quicker and easier for those on a crunched time schedule. This recipe, which uses yellow cake mix as a base, is a perfect example of why something semi-homemade can be served proudly – this version of an old family favorite as good or better than the scratch version. We’ve updated it with chia seeds to make this an easy and delicious way to improve the nutrition. Full recipe is under the video.

1 box (586g) Better Batter Gluten Free Yellow Cake Mix

2 Tbsp (about 15g) Better Batter Original Blend Gluten Free Flour

3 eggs (you may use 3/4c aquafaba or flax/chia gel, about 6fl oz, 178ml or 183g )

2/3 c (160ml or 165g) milk, df sub, or water

1/3 c (79ml or 81g) vegetable oil

1 tsp lemon extract

1 Tbsp (9g) poppyseeds or chia seeds (or a combination of both)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease, flour cupcake tins. See notes *below*

Blend together the cake mix and flour, stirring well to combine.

Add wet ingredients and beat on medium speed until just combined. Stir in poppyseed or chia seeds.

Measure batter into muffin cups. *see notes below*

Bake for about 20-25 minutes, or until muffins are just golden brown and tops spring back when lightly touched. Allow to cool at least 10 minutes on a wire rack before serving.

You may decorate with icing or glaze if desired – allow to cool completely first. Store in an airtight container, for storage purposes. You may also freeze these and reheat by placing for 30 seconds to a minute in the microwave.

Notes On Cupcake Tins: You may use any sized muffin tins you wish – baking time, yield, and rise will vary depending on what you choose and whether you line them or grease/flour. (Do not overfill, or your structure may collapse!)

Mini muffins – fill 1/2 to 2/3 full. You will get about 48 to 56 mini muffins

Traditional muffin tins: fill 1/2 to 2/3 full. You will get 12 to 24 muffins.

Texas (bakery) sized muffin tins: Fill 1/2 to 2/3 full. You will get 6 muffins.

Swiss Cake Roll

posted 2023 Apr by Jennifer Lathom


For the chocolate cake: For the cream filling: For the chocolate ganache: You will also need parchment paper, a handheld electric mixer or a stand mixer for this recipe.


Preheat and prepare. Lightly spray a half sheet pan (jelly roll pan with sides) with cooking spray. Add a piece of parchment to the sheet pan which covers the sides too, since this cake can stick. Set aside. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Sift the dry ingredients. In a large bowl, soft together the cocoa powder, cake flour, salt, and baking powder. Set aside. Whip the egg whites. Using a stand mixer, or a large bowl and a handheld mixer, whip the egg whites until they are at soft peaks, about 2-3 minutes on medium high speed. Do not beat too long until they are stiff; the tips should curl over themselves at the soft peak stage when lifted by the whisk/beater. Set aside. Make the sponge cake batter. Add the sugar and egg yolks to the dry cocoa powder mixture. Beat on low with the mixer until incorporated. This mixture will be thick. Switch to a spatula and mix in one-third of the beaten egg whites. Gently fold the egg whites in using the spatula to lighten the chocolate batter. Add in the remaining two-thirds of the beaten egg whites and continue to fold (not stir) with large strokes around the bowl until all egg whites are incorporated into the batter. Pour the batter onto the prepared sheet pan. Smooth into an even layer using an off-set spatula or butterknife. This will be a thin layer in the sheet pan. Bake. Bake the cake for about 6 minutes or until the cake springs back when gently touched and the top feels slightly spongy. Remove from the oven and quickly remove from the sheet pan (parchment paper layer included) and place on the work bench or large cutting board. Smooth the parchment edges flat and roll up, parchment and all, from the short end. This will prevent the cake from cracking later on when filled with creme filling. Let chocolate and parchment roll cool completely on a wire rack before unrolling. Make the cream filling. While the chocolate cake is cooling, make the cream filling. In a large bowl, beat together butter, vegetable shortening, marshmallow creme, vanilla, and powdered sugar. Scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula often to mix everything together. Set aside until cake assembly time. Assemble. Carefully unroll the parchment and chocolate cake from each other. Spoon the cream filling into the cake and use an off-set spatula to spread into an even layer. Re-roll the cake placing seam side down. Place on top of a wire rack placed over a sheet pan. Glaze. Heat the cream over medium heat on the stove until it just begins to simmer. Quickly remove from heat and add the chocolate. Stir with a whisk until all of the chocolate has melted. Carefully pour the ganache glaze over the entire cake roll, ends included. Let the chocolate set up at room temperature before serving. Makes 8+ servings. Store leftovers at room temperature in an air-tight container. Adapted from Cooking By Moonlight

Ham and Cheese Scones

posted 2023 Apr by Jennifer Lathom



Preheat and prepare. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside. Grate the stick of butter using the smaller holes on a box grater. Freeze 10 minutes while gathering the rest of the ingredients. Make the scone dough. In a large bowl, add the flour, salt, pepper, baking powder, baking soda, and brown sugar. Mix well to combine. Working quickly, add the frozen grated butter into the flour mixture and gently stir to combine. Set aside. In a small bowl, whisk together one egg, yogurt or sour cream, and 5 Tbsp milk. Beat well to combine. Add the liquid mixture to the flour mixture and combine with a fork. Continue to add milk one tablespoon at a time or until everything is just moistened. Add in the ham (I used Virginia Smoked, but choose your favorite!) grated cheese and optional scallions. Gently fold into the dough with a spatula. Pour the dough onto a clean, floured work bench and shape into a thick 10-inch circle. Cut the dough into 8 wedges and carefully transfer to the prepared baking sheet, spacing the scone wedges 2 inches apart. Bake. Brush the egg wash on top of each scone wedge using a pastry brush before baking. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the tops are golden brown. Cool slightly and serve warm.

Gluten Free Magnolia Pie

posted 2023 Apr by Jennifer Lathom


For the crust: For the lemon filling: For the whipped topping and garnish: Optional: Homemade sweetened condensed milk:


Make the homemade sweetened condensed milk. (Skip this step if using condensed milk from the store). Bring the whole milk and powdered sugar to a simmer in a saucepan over medium low heat. You do not want this mixture to boil ever. Whisk frequently until the mixture just begins to thicken, about 10 minutes. Add the butter and continue to gently simmer until the milk mixture is very thick, about 10 more minutes. Remove from heat when the condensed milk coats the back of a spoon, leaving a trail. Add the vanilla and whisk well to incorporate. Cool completely before making the lemon filling. Please note: this condensed milk will really need to be thick otherwise the lemon filling for the pie will not set up properly. Preheat and prepare. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Make the crust. Crush the graham crackers in a food processor until they are finely ground. Add in the brown sugar and melted butter and pulse to combine into a damp sand-like consistency is formed for the mixture. Spoon into a 9 inch pie plate. Press into an even layer on the bottom and all the way up the sides. Compress the graham cracker mixture well. First bake. Bake the graham cracker crust for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown all over. Remove from the oven and set aside. Prepare the lemon filling. In a large mixing bowl combine the sweetened condensed milk, lemon juice, egg yolks, and a pinch of salt. Using a handheld electric mixer, beat this mixture for 3-4 minutes or until a smooth, thick consistency is reached. Scrape down the sides of the bowl as needed. Gently tap the bowl on your work surface to release any air bubbles trapped in the filling mixture. I also use my spatula to gently turn over the filling inside the bowl to pop air bubbles. Pour the filling into the baked crust. Second bake. Bake the pie for 10-12 additional minutes or until the center is set and does not jiggle when you move the pie plate. The filling should not be brown on top at all. Remove the pie from the oven and let cool completely to room temperature. Cover lightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, or up to overnight. Garnish. Just before serving, whip the cream. Beat the heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer (or use a handheld mixer and and a large mixing bowl) on medium-high speed for 2-3 minutes or until soft peaks form. Stir in vanilla. Spoon or pipe onto individual pieces of pie and top with lemon wedges and fresh raspberries. Makes 6-8 servings. Adapted from Mel's Kitchen Cafe
