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!

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! :) :)

    • Thank you everyone! Good to know I am not alone with this. I am asking for a referral to a new cardio. Hopefully it will all go away the longer I am gluten-free. It started up in February/March after a gluten challenge and mostly vanished until July when I had a lot of shortness of breath. It absolutely was CRAZY just a few days after the glutening. I was gasping for breath and the beats were all over the place just walking through a parking garage and I was only mildy anemic at the time.   But it seems to "quiver" and do funny things for a bit still. I sort of theorized maybe it was inflammation in the heart because after this last glutening, my head felt like it was in a vice and my eyes would sting or get stabbing pain hurt (that is finally going away thankfully...knock on wood).  The head/eye pressure I learned also happens to my sibling who has celiac and his naturopath told him that sometimes the brain gets inflamed. Hopefully I can meet the new cardio soon and feel confident that he is taking me seriously. It is sort of difficult to feel confident in the opinion of a doctor that your ticker is ok when they are not really listening and end up making you cry. LOL. A friend of mine in the mental health field recently listened to my story of doc after doc and test after test and said that it was akin to the folk story of blind men describing an elephant. A group of blind men all feel one part of an elephant (tusk, tail, ear, tail) and then compare notes only to find they all disagree.  In some  versions they argue intensely. In other versions they have to collaborate and listen to each other in order to "describe" an elephant.    
    • Good afternoon! I am new to this board and fairly new to researching Celiac Disease, although I had a general idea what it was. My health has become a huge mystery to me, and it's one that I am desperate to solve. The biggest issue right now is horrible, life affecting fatigue. I have been dealing with it for several years now- as many as 5 to 6. It has gotten progressively worse, and nothing at all helps. Sleep apnea has been ruled out. Intestinal issues are something I have dealt with for almost two decades. I'm 45, but I've already had two colonoscopies as well as two endoscopies. My first endoscopy was as a child for persistent, severe stomach pain. My last colonoscopy and endoscopy was two years ago. The only thing that has come from those is an Irritable Bowel type condition and GERD, which is pretty bad. My bowel movements have always been crazy. They can be very normal and healthy to completely crazy. I've had periods of persistent diarrhea to occasional constipation, which is a fairly new thing within the last year. Last week, I went from having diarrhea that morning to hard, round balls of stool by that evening. My most common stools here lately, though, are not quite diarrhea, but more fluffy, large piles. Gas is an ongoing, daily issue for me. I have copious amounts of gas every day no matter what I eat or drink. Most of the gas in non-odorous but it can be very loud. I am currently on a total of 60 mg of Ritalin per day just to function. I often add energy pills, purchased from places such as GNC, because the Ritalin isn't working. Yesterday, I took both doses of Ritalin and two energy pills, and I passed out on the couch after work. I work from 7:30am to 3:30pm, and my work day is nothing too crazy. I try to keep very consistent sleep hours and could easily sleep to 1:00pm or longer if I don't have to get up for something. I sometimes have short periods of energy in the mornings, but that is usually over by noon. The quality of my life is greatly affected. I don't want to go anywhere or do anything because I am way too tired. I'm trying to keep up with my exercising, but that is also a struggle.  I have a history of clinical depression for practically all my adulthood, but it has been very well managed for the last four years. The fatigue is currently causing a great deal of depression, but it is very different from the clinical depression that I use to deal with. When I don't feel sleepy and tired, I don't feel depressed. When the fatigue sets in, I feel very irritable and sad. I realize that the stimulants can cause irritability, but I don't feel irritable or sad when I'm not feeling fatigued.  I've only recently began to explore that the fatigue and the intestinal issues could be related. I have always accepted that I have a sensitive, cooky digestive track. The increasing, unrelenting fatigue is what has lead me to exploring the possibility that everything could be related. I did have blood work last November. My doctor did not test for anything Celiac Disease specific, but she did do a Vitamin D, ferritin level and overall metabolic panel. All of that is normal. My thyroid level is also normal, and I do take thyroid hormone because I had half of my thyroid removed 11 years ago due to what turned out to be a benign thyroid tumor.  I just saw my doctor two weeks ago, and she increased the dosage of my Ritalin. That has not helped at all. She has never mentioned Celiac Disease to me before. I made an appointment for this Friday afternoon to talk about it, but I keep wondering if I'm even heading in a direction that makes sense. I decided to post here for some guidance. I'm sorry this has been so long. I'm not really into cutting something totally out of my diet just to see what happens. I also feel like that if I have something that is poisoning my system, I need a real clinical diagnosis of that. I feel like maybe I'm grasping at straws now and imagining a correlation that isn't there. I am not looking for a quick fix, but right now I have no idea what needs to be fixed. I am open to any information and/or suggestions. Thanks so much!   Jennifer

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
