In 1994 I was diagnosed with celiac disease, which led me to create Celiac.com in 1995. I created this site for a single purpose: To help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives. Celiac.com was the first site on the Internet dedicated solely to celiac disease, and since then it has become an invaluable resource to people worldwide who seek information about celiac disease and the gluten-free diet.
In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore! which was also another Internet first—it was the first gluten-free food site to offer a shopping cart-style interface, and the ability for people to order gluten-free products manufactured by many different companies at a single Web site.
I am also co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.
This recipe comes to us from Sharon Marcus.
1 cup brown rice 2/3 cup tapioca
2 teaspoons xanthan gum
¾ cup sweet rice flour
1 ¼ cups white rice flour
1/3 cup corn Starch
¼ cup potato starch flour
Now for the cheese cakes: Both are suitable for 9x9 pans or round pans with same volume.
Mix this well and press ¾ of it into base of un-greased pan. Bake at about 350 degrees for 15 min or until firm to the touch. Let cool. Put the other ¼ of the base mix into a sauce pan and cook over low heat stirring constantly and breaking up clumps until you get a crumb mixture that slightly browned. Set aside.
Cream this with electric mixer until thick and creamy. To this mixture, add 3 cups sour cream. Mix well by hand. Spread on baked base. Sprinkle the crumbs over the top and refrigerate at least 3 hours.
2. Part A:
Beat whites with sugar until stiff. Set aside. Beat yolks with rest of ingredients until stiff like mayonnaise. Combine the 2 mixtures with a fork. Add 1/3c. flour mix and ½ teaspoon gluten-free baking powder. Pour in greased pan and bake about 10 min at 375 degrees
Beat whites with ½ of the sugar until stiff. Beat yellows with rest of sugar, cheese, lemon and corn flour. Add ½ of white mixture to yellow, mixing well. Pour on base. Pour rest of whites on top of that. Bake all in slow oven (300-325 degrees) For an hour. Turn off the heat and let it sit inside warm oven for another half hour. At this point, you can refrigerate as is or you can top it all off with gluten-free cherry or strawberry pie filling and then store in fridge. Hag sameach!
