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

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.

    • Gluten does WHAT to the brain?
      I'm ok, just a little tired right now.  Lots of stress getting elderly parents and in-laws taken care of. My thyroid took a dip low (no surprise there) so I had to increase dose by a quarter grain. Overall, I am not dragging all day but waking up and getting going in the morning is slowwwwwwwww.  I'm sure you understand that! Yeah........Barty.  I thought of her for DAYS on end and it just saddens me to no end that such good people are the ones being taken.  Sometimes life is just so unfair. We all know that but there are times when it really hits you in the gut. There are times I think they are the lucky ones with the way the world is going these days. This terrorism plague is unnerving and I am really getting mad about it. Dear God, please stop this shyte!  I also miss nvsmom and others who have not been heard from. I hope she is feeling better and is just busy with life.  I got glutened on vacation about 6 years ago on the first day in Liverpool.  Jeez, was I sick!  I know how you feel but take heart........that was the last time I was bagged on vacation.  The longer you are gluten free and heal, the faster you recover from hits. You also get very good at not being glutened. It has been almost 2 years since it happened to me last so after 11 years gluten-free, I think I am doing well with that. I still have a little work to do with the vitamin D levels but I work so seeing much sun isn't happening.  My levels have doubled but they are still under 50. This whole Celiac thing is a part time job!

      Hang in there SLLRUNNER...it is hard and frustrating.  Good job getting that appointment moved up.  I've done too...I've called daily looking for cancellations.  I can also remember counting down the days until my appointment.  ((((Hugs)))) and please let us know how it goes.
    • So I've been glutened....
      Miso soup has gluten in it, doesn't it? =/ I know that I've been avoiding it, which is a big shame because I adore miso!
    • Kissing and gluten
      Hi guys. I know this is a topic that has come up before, but I'd appreciate a little bit of advice. I've been 'courting' a guy for the past few months; nothing has happened yet but we have a proper date in a few weeks which is likely to lead to kissing. He didn't even know what a ceoliac was until a few days ago; I don't think he'd caught the hints that I'd been dropping beforehand. English isn't his first language - he's east Asian. Anyway, I've heard about being potentially glutened via a kiss. How do I broach this? I don't want to scare him off or make him think that I'm a lot of hard work; I know, I know, he's going to have to accept me as I am, etc. but for someone new to the entire thing, it is likely overwhelming. It would be for me if I'd never heard of it! Do I laughingly bring it up beforehand? We aren't going for food so if he isn't eating, just having a cup of tea, will I still need to be careful? If this seems safe, do I just let him kiss me and then bring up afterwards that any future kisses after food will have different precautions?  It all feels so clinical! He's a lovely guy so I do think he'll be understanding, but if anyone has any advice of first hand experience on how to approach the topic without it being a weird moment, that would be great.  
    • gluten-free...how long til I feel better?
      Hi there.  I had been sick for over a year and decided to try and go off gluten within 4 weeks i started to feel better than i had for so long! But my problem is now i test negative for celiac because i have no gluten in my body. I have been told to go back on gluten so it can be determined if i have it or not but im not willing to go back to feeling that sick again!

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
