This is an amazing cake in my opinion. Heavy and rich like a cheesecake in a way. Hope you enjoy it.

Lemon Chickpea Cake

1 can (19oz) chickpeas, drained and rinsed

zest of one lemon finely minced

juice of one lemon

4 eggs

1 cup granulated sugar

1/2 tsp baking powder

gluten-free icing sugar for garnish (optional)

In a food processor, processs chickpeas with lemon rind and 2Tbs lemon juice until very smooth. Add eggs, sugar and baking powder and process until well blended.

Pour into a 9" greased springform pan and bake in preheated oven (350F) for about 45 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean.

Cool about 15 minutes in pan, slide a knife around to loosen edges then remove sides of pan.

Drizzle with remaining lemon juice and sprinkle with icing sugar.

This cake is delicious served with fresh berries or a sauce or syrup made of berries.

Gluten Free Yellow Cake

This is a link to a recipe that Jessica posted for a fantastic yellow cake. It can be easily modified to be lemony or whatever you like. It's light and fluffy, and taste exactly like cake should taste (gluten-free or not!).

To make it lemony, add 1/2 tsp lemon extract and finely grated zest of 1 lemon to the wet ingredients and proceed as directed.

This is a good lemon bar cookie. My grandson is celiac disease, but didn't like the lemon flavor, so the rest of us (not celiac disease) ended up enjoying them.

Lemon Cookie Bars

1st layer

1/2 cup shortening

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup potato starch

3/4 cup cornstarch

2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum

1/4 cup milk

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In medium bowl, combine all 1st layer ingredients. Mix until forms a soft dough and lumps are removed. Press into bottom of greased 8x8 or 9x9 pan. Bake 20-25 minutes, until top is browned. Set aside.

2nd layer

1 1/4 cups water

1/4 cup lemon juice

2 egg yolks

2/3 cup sugar

4 Tbls. cornstarch

In medium saucepan, combine all 2nd layer ingredients. Mix well and cook over medium heat until mixture thickens. Immediately pour on top of 1st layer. Cool.

Dust with powdered sugar. Enjoy!

Have heard good things about the gluten-free Yellow Cake mentioned above although I haven't yet tried it since my grandson is a chocoholic. Had notes from someone that she reduced the sugar to 3/4 cup and added 1 pkg of flavored jello. This should work with lemon jello for a lemon cake. Please let us know if you try it.

    • Ok, I can't seem to find my first lot of blood tests that were done for Celiac screening, they did include TTG I remember that much, and I am getting another copy of it but another test did come in today.  I don't know how different tests are done around the world and I don't get all the medical jargon but this is what it states, ******************************************************************************* HLA DR/DQ Genotyping for Coeliac Disease, Specimen type : EDTA blood Method : Detection of sequence-specific oligonucleotides (Gen-Probe). HLA-DR - 1, 13          DRB1 - 01, 13 HLA-DQ - 5,6        HLA-DQA1 - 5,6      HLA-DB1 - 05, 06 Interpretation : No genotype susceptibility for coeliac disease.  The DQ2 and DQ8 antigens associated with increased risk of coeliac disease were not identified in this patient.  In the absence of these antigens, coeliac disease is extremely unlikely.   *******************************************************************************   I have read the horror stories of blood tests and scope biopsies not be done right or flawed but here is what I do know as of now, At the moment the most non invasive test I can have done say negative.  I have double scopes (endoscopy and colonoscopy) booked for the 12th of October with results from biopsies expected a week or two after. Chances are they will show, a) signs of coeliac disease (even if the odds are low it can still happen), b) show signs of something else entirely and we will be busy dealing with the ramifications of that or c) it will show no signs of coeliac but I will still be suffering from gluten sensitivity (which is harder/impossible to measure clinically). My GP has told me that stress and anxiety can be a cause of all the symptoms I have been experiencing and suggests if the scopes show nothing that I may benefit from something to treat anxiety, i.e. antidepressants.  Not in a, "Oh we don't know what it is so have these," kind of way, he agrees with the thought that the scopes could indeed show coeliac, something else or even be negative. I did tell him that I could have a sensitivity and that even without benefit of clinical results, some people have gone on a gluten elimination diet for a period of time to see if they get any relief.  My question is this, if the scopes come up negative and I try eliminating gluten, how long would it be before I saw any results or improvements?  I have read enough here and elsewhere to know that everybody is different, some see results within days, some see results longer but are there any guidelines for how long a test like this should be undertaken for?  I have heard everything thing from two weeks to two months.  All of this is entirely moot at this point but I know that even if the results said clear, there would always be a little part of me that wonders if it could be a sensitivity that is the problem.  Any thoughts or advice greatly appreciated, and a thank you to all those who have taken the time to respond and offer advice and encouragement so far.

    • Thanks I never heard of that dye before, I guess I have to find more natural meat thanks for the suggestion. 
    • Yes, I only eat one meal a day. Sometimes salad or fries or whatever I can find. And thanks for the replies again.
    • A colonoscopy is not used to diagnose celiac disease.  An endoscopy is used to obtain biopsies in the small intestine.
