Advice

In the gluten-free bridesmaid recipe, a smaller amount of sugar is used than in the traditional recipe because the rice flour tastes sweeter than 00 flour. This way the maid will be sweet at the right time.

As an alternative to rice flour, you can use a gluten-free mixture for desserts that you can easily find in the supermarket.

For a perfect frying and a crispy damsel on the outside and soft on the inside, we recommend that you use sunflower oil.

If the dough is too runny, add more rice flour.

storage

Gluten-free damsels can be kept for 1/2 days closed in an airtight box, but it is advisable to consume them immediately. On the other hand, they cannot be frozen after cooking but it is possible to freeze the dough either entirely or in portions.
