Monkey Cake (Gluten-Free)
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. In 1998 I created The Gluten-Free Mall, Your Special Diet Superstore!, and I am the co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of Journal of Gluten Sensitivity.View all articles by Scott Adams
2 ½ cups gluten-free flour mix
½ cup butter melted
¾ cup milk
1/3 cup sugar
1 tbsp cinnamon
½ cup sugar
¾ cup butter (6 tablespoons)
Mix mixture #1 in bowl or baggie; set aside.
Melt butter in mixture #2 and stir in sugar. Bring to a boil and boil two to three minutes and set aside.
Mix biscuit mix with melted butter until blended; stir in milk, mix until blended. Turn out on floured surface (waxed paper works well) and kneed a few times. Roll out (or press out with hands) about 3/8" thick and cut into 1 ½" squares. Does not have to be exact as this only makes making the monkey balls easier. Roll into balls about 1" round. Roll in mixture #1 and place in greased loaf pan.
Pour remaining sugar over monkey cake in loaf pan; pour mixture #2 over all and bake at 350F for 30 minutes. Turn out on plate immediately upon removing from the oven. Let cool at bit and enjoy.
Loaf pan measurers 4 ½” x 8 ½” top measure and 3 ½” x 7 ½” bottom measure.
