My birthday is coming up and nobody makes gluten free cakes where I am from. I was wondering if anyone has any gluten free cake recipes that they have tried that tastes some what like a birthday cake . Even a boxed cake mix that they tried that tastes good.

I think different people have different ideas of what exactly birthday cake is. A birthday cake can be any kind of cake you want, just served for a birthday. If you give us an idea of exactly what kind of cake you mean, we may be able to help point you in a helpful direction. That said, I've never been disappointed by a Hodgson Mill mix. Pancakes, cakes, brownies, doesn't matter. Every one I have tried has been superb and they're surprisingly cheap compared to others.

I have tried the betty crocker yellow cake mix and the devils food cake mix.  Liked them both.  Haven't tried any others, I try to avoid making cake because I eat it all at once... haha!

King Arthur  Flour  has  a  yellow  cake  mix  & a  chocolate  one which  both  are  very good.... If  you Google  the type  of  cake  you like I.e.----- Boston  cream, chocolate, German chocolate  ow  whatever  & add  gluten free  you will  get  hundreds  of  recipes...

 I /we  love  the  white  cake  from Baking  Classics  from Annalise Roberts...

Our go-to birthday cake is Bobs Red Mill Chocolate mix with one cup of choc chips added.

For frosting we use canned in a hurry or

2 cups choc chips

1 can sweetened condensed milk

2 tsp vanilla

Heat over lowest stovetop temp until smooth...frost immediately :)

Other favs are vanilla cake, lemon cake or strawberry cake....let me know if you'd like one of those

Happy Birthday!

This chocolate mayonnaise cake is to die for.....sub wheat flour with Pamela's gluten-free blend with guar gum (or Xanthan gum). I use my own buttercream chocolate frosting. Gluten eaters adore it! Makes great cupcakes that freeze well.

It is....I usually just frost the tops of layers with it....you can frost the sides, but kind of a pain and not necessary because it is very rich.

I like to use a Glutino Double Fudge Brownie mix along with:

1/2 -2/3 c flax meal

1/2 -1 tsp baking powder

1/2 c Vega One chocolate protein powder (optional)

just over 1/3 c melted butter or coconut oil

4-5 eggs

 

375F for 20-25 minutes for cupcakes. About 30 min-45 min for a cake.  

 

My boys also love angel food cake for birthdays.

    • I haven't seen my gastroenterologist for a few years.  I was diagnosed celiac and have been gluten free for more than 5 years.  I've been having trouble again for the past 6 months or so.  I've done a full elimination diet and have come up with the culprit - eggs!   I did a search of the forum here and have found it's not uncommon for people with celiac to develop a sensitivity to eggs.     I can forego eating eating eggs but It's getting to be flu season.  I was planning on getting my flu shot today, as usual, at work.  The pre-shot questionnaire asks if I have an allergy to eggs.  As, I have never been tested, I don't know if this is really an "allergy".   I asked the nurse about it.  She said that if I do have an allergy to eggs,  it could be dangerous to get the vaccine.   So, I didn't ended up not getting the vaccine.  Anyone else in this boat.   Has anyone actually been tested for egg allergy?   Any advice as it pertains to the flu vaccine?  
    • Thanks for replying. You've been very helpful and given me some ideas of trying a few foods in small amounts. I wish I had rotated food months ago then it might not have got so bad. Thanks again and I wish you well.
    • Until my recent blood test results I've been having cinnamon and mint tea in the mornings, which seemed to have a positive effect calming the digestive system (and tastes good too!)  After the first step of diagnosis with high Iga TTg I took at look at the cinnamon sticks I make the tea with and it says "packed in a factory that may contain wheat, corn etc. etc." so that I guess would sound alarm bells for many I reckon. That said I'd imagine the way most of these herbs and spices are harvested isn't exactly gluten-free friendly yet I've seen quite a few recipes using it. How are people getting around this as I can't see any specific gluten-free certified cinnamon products out there? Really could do with my tea back P.S. I also have chamomile tea using the raw flowers which may have a similar background but seem to be less of a risk somehow?
    • If I do have to go back on gluten for a bit it'll at least be a temporary relief from the withdrawal symptoms (or at least what I hope are just withdrawal symptoms). Today's returning malady is acid reflux, something I'd thought I'd seen the back of recently. Really need that to calm down as PPIs the doctor gave before were evil medication and caused 10x more problems, possibly the worst I've ever felt whilst on those so won't be going back there! Although the scales seem to have stabilised in terms of weight loss in myself I feel like I'm wasting away at present, what with the random pulling sensations in muscles and tender head area I'm just scared for what other illnesses may be laying in wait related to the celiac genes  Think I'll head back for the ESR and CRP blood tests next week as the shoulder and temple pains are really worrying me right now, could just be the gluten intolerance but the other options are terrifying if not caught early. So much uncertainty, apart from the fact that none of this ever gets fully better (if at all)...
    • You're welcome! Good luck! And if you get nowhere there, remember, the higher you go, the nicer they get. Skip straight up to the top brass.
