I made this recipe for my son's 6th birthday! It turned out GREAT! (40 thumbs-up!)

I did bake it at 275-300F for 40-45 min.... I just think rice cooks better at a lower temperatures.

Definately give it a try! (It makes great cupcakes, too :P )

Oh, yeah... And, you can sub some of the flour for cocoa powder to make a chocolate cake--maybe 1/2 cup... (depends on how chocolatey you like your cake!)

Have fun experimenting!

I remember you posting that recipe not too long ago, I should have tried that cake instead of what I made! That will be the next one I bake. Thank you so much and I am sure my kids will thank you too :D

I made this cake yesterday with Pineapple Upside down and it was a little gummy. I remembered you saying rice should be cooked slower and longer. I wonder if this would take some of the gumminess out of it?? The cake was good, just a little different texture.

Could you or anyone else, please tell me if there's a difference between Tapioca flour and tapioca starch? I'd really appreciate any help on this. Granny

Hi Granny,

If the gummyness is due to it not being cooked well enough in the center, then I'd say, "Yes!"

That was the main reason that I started baking my rice flour at a lower temperature and slower...

If the reason was that it has too much liquid, then... I'd try making it again, at a lower temp. just to see--before I reduced the liquid! :)

Since only my grandson is Celiac, it's been difficult finding a cake recipe everyone will eat, but the following Angel Food Cakes have been great.

White Angel Food Cake

1/2 c. cornstarch 1 1/4 c. egg whites

1/3 c. potato starch 1 Tbls. water

3/4 tsp xanthan gum 1 tsp. cream of tartar

3/4 c. sugar 2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. salt 1/3 c. sugar

Preheat oven to 350F. Combine first 5 ingredients and set aside. In large mixing bowl, combine egg whites, water, cream of tartar & vanilla. Mix until frothy. Continue beating and slowly add 1/3 c. sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in flour mixture until well blended without lumps. Pour batter into ungreased angel food cake pan. Press batter down slightly to remove air spaces. Bake approx. 30-40 minutes, until light golden brown. Invert pan over glass bottle and cool cake upside down. When cool, remove from pan. Cut cake in half horizontally and frost with favorite frosting.

Chocolate Angel Food Cake

1/4 c. cornstarch

1/4 c. potato starch

1/4 c. cocoa Combine first 6 ingredients & set aside.

1/2 tsp. xanthan gum

3/4 c. sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

The remainder of ingredients and directions are the same as for White Angel Food Cake. These both make light, delicious cakes. Hope you like them.

I tried making the yellow cake and it turned out well... hard and rubbery. I do live at a high altitude and if that was the problem can anyone tell me what to do about it.

IN my gluten-free cookbooks ( I have 8 of them ) they say that tapioca starch and tapioca flour are the same thing. Just different names.

Okay, I made the yellow cake.... finally, and holy cow it was sooooo good, I would never have know it was a gluten-free cake, if I hadn't made it myself.

I am not a big fan of mayo, so I substituted with a combination of butter flavored shortening and regular butter (6 Tbs of shortening & 5 Tbs of butter). Then I beat the butter/shortening and sugar until it was light and fluffy, then added the eggs one at a time, it was delicious.... all my son could say was "mmmmm, yummmy cupcake!"

Thanks Jessica for the great recipe! I will definately be using this for future birthday parties!

Amy's gluten free yellow cake mix is indeed great tasting. I keep the mix on the shelf but only put 3/4 cups sugar in and not 1 1/4 cups. I then add one package gluten free Jello Jelly powder, depending on what flavour of cake my children want. It works great! One 85g pkg Jello equals 1/2 cup sugar. The rest I do the same as the directions.

A professional baker also told me to wrap up any cupcakes or cake in Saran Wrap while they are warm, but cool enough to handle with your bare hands and freeze immediatly. When they are thawed they taste like fresh baked. Comes in handy to have cupcakes in the freezer for those last minute birthday invitations.

Thanks Amy!

;) I have been using my old cake recipes and substituting

Betty Hagman's flour mix for the flour and adding xanthan gum.

These cakes seem to come out "just about normal." Most of

the time you can't tell it from the regular recipe. It doesn't

keep as long, I find, but it just means we can eat more of it

at a shorter period of time. Yummy. :P

Does anyone use their old cake recipes and just substitute Betty Hagman's

flour mix for the wheat flour? I do this all the time and use xanthan gum also,

and they come out great. :P

I use my old recipies! :P

I just substitute a mix of 1/2 regular white rice flour and 1/2 glutenous rice flour (super fine milled from an Asian food store) and they come out great!! Sometimes I play with the liquid content...I know what I want it to look like... And, I usually forget the xanthan gum entirely (just forgetfull!)

My main secret is to cook them "low and slow"--usually at 275-300F!

Don't overcook!!!!!!!!! It does take a few batches to learn to make them perfect, but my family (and friends) never complain!

Happy baking!

Connie

PS Glutenous rice flour doesn't have the kind of gluten we can't have....it's just rice!

Connie,

Thanks for the PS. I'd seen glutenous rice flour at the Asian Market and wondered what it was. Can you also explain the Sweet Rice. Is this just a brand name or is it something different? Thanks, Granny

Re: Glutinous rice flour

The lady in the Oriental store where I buy all of my

flours told me that glutinous flour is a sweet rice flour.

I use very little of it....only when a recipe calls for it.

I am not at all adventurous as some of you are. :o

    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks  
    • Before i was diagnosed 2 years ago i had a severe chronic itchy scalp.  It would develop minor pimple like blisters then turn in to sores from the intense scratching.  At the time the dr i saw did a punch biopsy on the original sore, it came back with a florescent pattern and micro abcessing.  i saw a dermatologist who said it was a staph infection (wasn't checking for dh) sent me home with cream and a steroid lotion, didnt work. Shortly after i was diagnosed with celiac and went back to the dermatologist.  He did a punch biopsy BUT he took it from the top of my butt cheek saying that was the most common spot for dh to manifest.  My results were negative.   my question is...   Can this be a false negative due to the punch biopsy not being taken from skin adjacent to the lesions? since being gluten free the intensity has subsided but is still there.
    • Hi Morna.  I will have to add Tom and Chee's to my list.  I have found so many new restaurants on this forum.  My family's birthday season is coming up (I swear, everyone was born between September-December), so I am going to have to check out the bakery on Campbell Station.  Sneak in some gluten-free cake and goodies and see if anyone notices.  I miss cake.
