Comment on gluten-free baked goods

Just an FYI....for any of you who are new to gluten-free baking: 90% of gluten-free baked goods are best eaten as soon as they are out of the oven and cool enough so that you won't burn your mouth.

OK, they're good for the first least the first several hours.

But by the second day, there is a definite tendency for breads and biscuits, etc., to be dryer and less tasty. Re-heating does help, particularly with bread, which can be toasted and restored to a semblance of the "first day" taste.

I say 90% because there are a few exceptions to this rule, notably Elana's Chocolate Chip Brownies, which we actually left out on the counter, uncovered, for more than two days. They stayed moist and luscious for the entire time....amazing!!

You should really try that recipe!
