Red Velvet Cupcakes
0

21 posts in this topic

Well I found the recipe for the red velvet cupcakes from the Premium Gold website. I just pulled the first batch out of the oven and they smell so freaking good! 

 

http://www.premiumgoldflax.com/recipe_glutenfreeredvelvetcupcake.php

 

I'm being super lazy and using the cream cheese betty crocker frosting. I typically make my own because I prefer mine to be less sweet but sometimes you gotta go for the shortcuts.

 

I find that I have to find specific recipes for the flour blends I buy because for whatever reason I am not good at adapting recipes, even ones that are already gluten free, to a different flour I have on hand. I understand the xantham gum principles but for whatever reason it never works out for me.

 

I'll be back to let you know how they taste!

YAY!!! That is soooooo comforting to hear!! I love red velvet cupcakes, too! If you like the flour and use it for baking then I know I'm in luck! I'm about to infiltrate your recipe stash for more cupcake recipes with this flour! I found it at Home Goods for 6.99 for a 2lb bag! I see it on Amazon so that is where I will get it if I can't find it again locally.

I'll eat one in your honor. I'm sorry if you haven't been able to eat one since gluten free, right? This is my first red velvet since being gluten free!

Nope, none for months! My supermarket stacks them next to the gluten-free section for some reason... evil! Recently I've been telling myself that there's nothing I *can't* eat because if I wanted it badly enough I'd learn to make it myself. So far this has extended to proper chips, cake type things and extremely rich coconut and mango curries. Healthy gluten free eating phase officially over.

Make cupcakes? I'm a spoiled brat. I buy cupcakes from gluten free bakeries. For me cupcakes are usually a special treat and when I feel entitled to a special treat I don't feel like I should have to make it myself.  B) I usually make other things, mostly bread these days to be perfectly honest. Bread of all sorts, but not sandwich bread. I buy that crap. I've just been having a crappy week and I don't have money to blow on the number of cupcakes I feel like stuffing in my face right now, so making them seems far more sensible. (unless you ask my hips, and no one is asking those fatties)

What?! My nearest bakery is about 40 miles/minutes away. I wish I had the luxury... because the place I go to, Pushkin's in Sacramento, are really really good!

 

I have never tried to make bread... I'm not  a huge bread eater, never have been. 

 

And you should never ask your hips for advice, they never lie. :P

The cupcakes were a complete success! They were moist, not crumbly and had the same mouth feel as a glutiny cupcake. I will definitely keep the recipe and use it again! I took it to a chocolate party at my sisters house and everyone there loved them! And the recipe makes 30.... just sayin!

Thank you! I put the leftovers in the freezer just now. That will also prevent me from eating them all at once! lol

No, it's the mysteries of predictive text.... Also if you type in different languages and forget to change the keyboard... Absolute chaos ensues.... But it's quite funny! We should never lose our sense of humor!

Thought you'd just given moose a new nickname. My predictive text once changed 'I see you... Muhaha' to 'I see you... Mugabe' :|

It is so worth the effort. Also instead of the sour cream I used greek yogurt because that is what I had on hand - totally worked. :)

I agree!  It's so much easier typing on my laptop (like I'm doing now)!  I confess the convenience of the ipad is really nice!  Maybe I should spring for a wireless keyboard for my ipad -- but it's got to be laptop-sized and not one of those tiny keyboards.

 

Sorry, the for confusion!

I like the idea of the wireless laptop pads. They are really neat. 

 

Is it sad that I know it takes a cycle of 7 secs, 5 seconds, and another 5 seconds to thaw out my frozen cupcakes? LOL I may have eaten 2 when I got home from work today. I spent all day in the OR. I earned them. Haha!

So I finally made my cupcakes today. I meant to earlier in the week and it just didn't get done. They are so good. Even more awesome though tbh is the frosting that is listed on the recipe. I could just make that frosting and eat it forever. It is really bakery quality frosting.

Now I have to make it again for the frosting. I ran out of time last weekend. Like I need an excuse? I'm so glad they worked out for you, too! :) :)

    • Here's another thing.  Feeling deprived?  Order two of the same item.  I was hungry by the time dinner arrived! 
    • The doctors just made me feel like I was crazy because they did not have a clue of what was wrong with me. I did a stool test (positive) and I did a genes test (positive for two gluten sensitive genes, one in each chromosome).  Blood test are not so foolproof, if you read the comments/experiences in such topic you will see the problems. Biopsy can give a false negative if taken from an undamaged area. If you have medical problems that go away once on a gluten free diet then gluten is the problem. The medical establishment profit from managing your medical problems and big pharma makes money by pushing pills so we need to be careful because they won't benefit if a gluten-free diet solve your problems. Since I started a Gluten free diet I have been free of the following: (all related to Celiac)  Irregularity, Intestinal noise, Irregular stool, Tooth enamel defects, Rash in upper arms, Abdominal swelling, depression, fatigue, irritability, lactose intolerance, 
      loss of memory, dandruff, uncontrollable bladder, suicidal thoughts, unable to sleep, Canker sores/ Mouth ulcers, high blood pressure, and probably others that I did not realize. I was at the end of my rope, thanks to Google and the people that are able to talk about this I was able to get my life back. I am passionate about this because I know how bad its can get. 
    • Well, I have never cruised on Carnival, but I am sure they can accommodate you.  I assume that you have already alerted them that you require gluten free meals.  If not, please contact Carnival immediately. Here are my own tips.  Some folks eat off the buffet line, but not me or hubby except for coffee/drinks and baked potatoes (jacketed) and fruit that we wash in the restroom (people touch everything!)  Okay, I am OCD, but my last glutening which occurred the previous summer made me sick for three months (GI tested my antibodies to prove it).   When we board, I go to the buffet restaurant ASAP and ask to speak to the Head Waiter (they are usually there greeting customers and often trying to up sell to specialty restaurants.   Let them know you have celiac disease and must be gluten free.  They may try to tell you that each dish is clearly marked gluten free, but really?  Who's to say that some other passenger is not going to switch spoons (or I have seen passengers wandering around with serving spoons...I kid you not!  The staff usually will  go downstairs and fetch a gluten free meal for me from the main dining room's kitchen as there is usually a dedicated area for allergies.  We have to wait up to 20 minutes or so but it is worth it.  Starving?  Get a baked potato wrapped in foil until your gluten-free meal arrives.  Now, do not do this every single time.  Those folks have to go down several levels to fetch food and you don't want to be a pain.  But if the main dining area is closed, they need to make an effort to keep you safe.  On our last cruise, we were advised not to eat anywhere but the main dining room and that included room service (they are not trained to handled allergies).  My headwaiters have sent goodies (prepackaged gluten free rolls and cookies for us to keep in our room.  We can always grab whole fruit (I wash it first) to snack on.  I bring gluten-free non-perishable items with me to eat while at port in case we can't find anything (which can be often).  Again, when we get back to our ship, we contact our headwaiter and he/she can prepare some snacks until we have dinner.   Be grateful and not picky.   We eat all meals in the dining room (or at least as much as possible).  Our headwaiter had a few other celiacs on our cruise this summer, so they prepared some gluten-free waffles, etc. for our breakfast!  What a treat!  At breakfast, we'd have different waiters, so our headwaiter would always instruct our waiters each and every time!  They even let me tour the kitchen and showed me the allergy section.   The only time I did not feel safe was at the buffet.  We once ordered gluten-free pizza and I realized (I watched) that that restaurant didn't really have the gluten-free thing down), do I called him on it.  Got the manager etc.  So, be careful.  Other cruises made us frozen Udi"s which was just fine with us.  They covered it up in foil so that we would not get any cross contamination from their pizza oven. So, have fun!   Tipping?  We prepaid our gratuities, but we gave our headwaiter an extra $200.00 for his time.  For us, it was well worth the service and safety of our food.  It does not hurt to slip some of the tip ahead of time (like after your first meal!)   Oh, I checked your ship.  You must eat in the diningroom if you have special dietary needs.
