Why is my gluten-free carrot bread crumbly?
This is a common thing when baking a carrot cake. Let's look at the reason why is this happening!
The bread usually becomes crumbly because it is way too moist. So the problem might with carrots or any other liquids.
To avoid crumble bread, try these tips:
- Add enough flour. You need to add a good amount of flour to the carrot bread.
- Less carrot is more. If you are adding carrots, make sure you are not adding too much of them. If your carrots seem watery, just squeeze out the water.
- Make sure you are using a mix of gluten-free flours, not only one type of flour. I love to combine gluten-free oat flour, buckwheat flour, and rice flour.
These were tips to make your carrot bread better. All of these tips are equally important to make your bread less crumbly.
Does gluten-free carrot cake need to be refrigerated?
Most gluten-free cakes don't need to be refrigerated, if unfrosted. However, if you want to keep your bread fresh for longer, I suggest you refrigerate the cake. It will last longer and taste better.
Also, if the gluten-free cake has frosting, it NEEDS to be refrigerated, otherwise, it might get bad and the frosting might melt.

Can you use BROWN RICE flour?
You can use white rice or brown rice flour, it is totally up to you.
Hi! In a pinch, can you substitute anything for the rice flour? I love all the other Flour combo!
Hi! Sadly you can't. Rice flour is very dense and you have to mix it with other flours to achieve that fluffy bread.
