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 was created by Leslie Hammond.
You can use this in place of shortcakes or pound cake. Make in a loaf pan for a pound cake, or two 8 inch cake pans. For best results line the pans with tin foil.
1 ½ cups butter
8 oz. cream cheese
2 ½ cups sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla powder (Cooks)
3 cups rice flour
1 teaspoon salt
In a mixer, with the paddle attachment beat the butter and cream cheese on low speed until smooth. Add the sugar and whip for 4 minutes. Add the eggs, vanilla, salt, and the flour. Beat on low until smooth. Pour into pan and bake 25-30 minutes at 350F.
