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.
cup salad oil ( I use olive oil )
1 beaten egg
½ cup milk
1 ½ cup gluten-free flour* plus 1 ½ teaspoon xanthan gum
¾ cup sugar
2 teaspoon baking powder
dash of salt
Combine salad oil, egg, and milk. Sift dry ingredients and add, mixing will. Pour into greased 9x9x2 inch pan. Sprinkle with Spicy Topping* and bake at 375 for about 25 minutes.
* Spicy Topping:
Combine ½ cup gluten-free brown sugar, 2 tablespoons gluten-free flour, 2 teaspoon ground gluten-free cinnamon , 2 tablespoon melted butter, ¾ cup broken nuts (your choice ). This is best fresh, however if any of it does make it through the first day, it never makes it through the second.
