Clam Cake Recipe
0

6 posts in this topic

My mother was just diagnosed with celiac disease a few weeks ago and is just starting to learn about the disease. She has a terrible craving for clam cakes and has tried to make them with different flours she can have and they haven't tasted all that great. To be honest, they were horrible. I was just wondering if anyone out there has a recipe for clam cakes. This is a Rhode Island tradition around here so I really hope someone can help us.

Thanks,

Lauri

Can you give us a clue as to what goes into these clam cakes?

Is it like crab cakes where you use bread crumbs? If so, just

use gluten free bread and I always use these crumbs along with

corn meal to bread the crab cakes.

From a fellow celiac that seriously missed some down-home Rhode Island love...I don't know if you already found a recipe, but these have come out perfect for me, I can't even tell the difference from the real thing (and neither can my non-gluten-free friends!) Recipe for summer happiness:

Rhode Island Style CLAM CAKES (gluten free!)

1 cup white rice flour

1/2 cup tapioca flour/starch

1/2 cup corn starch

2 tablespoons baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

1 tablespoon sugar

1 cup milk

3/4 cup clam juice

1 cup minced clams

Combine the wet and dry ingredients and stir in clams. If batter is too thick, add milk. Drop into hot oil (375) by the tablespoon, they usually flip themselves. Remove from oil and drop on paper towels. Salt. Enjoy!

I have never had clam cakes but from the deep south have had many fish patties and crab patties. I am hoping that this recipe will help you.

We make these with seasonings (onions, bell peppers, shallots) one raw egg, potato flakes, salt, pepper and cooked crab meat or boiled fish. Mix well and shape into patties and coat outside with corn flour or rice flour. (I have an older friend who makes crab patties for me if I bring her the gluten free rice flour.)

I made these for some gluten-intolerant guests yesterday, and they were great. The batter was a bit thin, so I thickened it with some commercial gluten-free flour blend (otherwise I would have used more of the rice flour).

Outstanding! Thanks for the recipe!

[i may yet try to convert my grandmother's recipe, which calls for an egg but it's hard enough to follow with "a heaping teaspoon of this" and "a scoop of that"!]

I really ought to post my gluten-free brown bread recipe, which was a perfect addition.

Leira - I actually tend to use just a 1/2 cup of clam juice, and then adjust with flour (As you did) or more clam juice as necessary. Boy, do they hit the spot! :)

    • It sure is, it really is. 
    • shellyb, I have info. for you & you may yet be able to get an official dx from your dermatologist as she sounds like she would be willing to learn. If you are dx'd with dh it is definitive & no other testing is needed. You don't need to see a GI. Im in FL & have had a long day watching Tropical Storm Hermine & making preparations for it's track which is over where I live. I'm tired! I will have links for you to reputable medical info. on the rash but it make take me till tomorrow or even longer if we lose power.  I'll be back as soon as I can. Question: You're on Dapsone now? How long have you been on it? How is it working for you? Are you getting the proper testing at regular intervals to make sure it isn't doing bad things to you? Were you gluten free before the skin biopsy?
    • Thank you so much for your quick response, GFinDC. While I wouldn't be completely opposed to another skin biopsy, I already had 4 done (3 were done prior to my dermatologist suspecting DH) so I don't love the idea of  yet another hole and scar on my body. Plus, fortunately I don't have any fresh lesions now, which I believe is needed for the biopsy. I wish I would have known to see a GI before going gluten free but I was so desperate to get any relief that I started that and Dapsone as soon as my doctor mentioned it to me.  My rash is definitely symmetrical and I have it in all of the "classic" DH spots although it basically spread over my entire body. As much as I'd like a more formal diagnosis, I really don't think I can go through all of that again. It was so bad that not only was I getting no sleep but I had to change my sheets every morning because there was blood all over them. Sorry, TMI. The worst part is that this all developed during my ninth month of pregnancy and got much worse after I delivered my baby. So not only was I dealing with this insanely itchy rash but I had a newborn and a toddler to take care of.  My daughters' pediatrician did mention doing DNA testing on me first and then my daughters to see if there's any concern that they may be susceptible. I may just go that route for now. I was just curious if others have had similar test results to mine and how did their doctors treat it? Thanks again!
    • Hey guys, the last year and a month of transitioning to totally gluten free was hard, but I now seem to be healthy. The first six months I got horrible cramps that would suddenly come and hit hard, but I really havent seen any of those since about February-March. One thing that I wouldnt say has gotten better is my psyche. I was always sort of an anxious person (hard not to be when you dont feel well yet you have "IBS" and you're just "nervous", which all of you probably know), but I am borderline hermit now. I finally went to the doctor today and was prescribed prozac, so hopefully that helps, but I was just wondering about you guys? Thanks  
    • Thank-you, thank-you! I am so relieved to have input from others who have experience with celiac disease. I'm not sure what I'm going to do about the school cafeteria. I'll ask our very nice and experienced Cafe Mgr for realistic info and details. My primary concern is the safety of my daughter and packing a lunch will not be that big a deal, even though she prefers the fresh prep instead of lunchbox offerings. Sigh. It sounds as if the 504 is unquestionably the preference over the IHCP, since the 504 is binding and follows the student through his/her academic career. I have a meeting with the admin team on Tuesday. Until then, I'm reading lots so i can be informed. And, dkader, I sent you a private message via the blog's feature. I'd certainly love to read the 504 info you have squirreled away. Thank-you so much!
