Fresh Apple Cake

7 posts in this topic

I can't remember where I got the recipe for this; it may have been on this site; but it is one of the best things I have tried.

Finely dice 4 cups apple and mix in a big bowl with 2 cups sugar. Mix 2 cups Featherlight, 1/2 tsp. xanthan gum, 1 1/2 tsp. soda, 2 tsp. cinnamon, 1 tsp. salt, and stir in. In a separate bowl, mix 2 lightly beaten eggs with 2/3 cup canola oil and 2 tsp. vanilla. (I used 1 tsp. vanilla and 1 tsp. vanilla-butter-nut flavoring.) Stir this into apple mixture. Stir in 2/3 cup coconut and 1 cup nuts. Spread into greased 13 x 9 pan and bake at 350 for 50 minutes. Let cool while you mix up a powdered sugar glaze. Spread the glaze over the warm cake. Serve warm or cool.

What is Featherlight?

It's the mix that is in so many recipes (from B Hagman?) It's in this proportion: 1 cup white rice flour, 1 cup tapioca flour, 1 cup cornstarch, and 1 tablespoon potato flour (not potato starch). Mix it up in bulk and keep it in a jar. This apple cake recipe, a really good chocolate cake recipe, a really good banana nut bread recipe, and lots of other recipes all use it.

mmm, I need to try that cake, thanks for posting!

I sub featherlite in baking for a sorghum mix b/c its healthier and I am not crazy about rice flour, it works great:

Carol's flour blend

1 1/2 cups sorghum

1 1/2 cups potato starch or cornstarch

1 cup tapioca flour

I still use featherlite in tortillas, pie crust and "Oreos"

Could you use a gluten free all-purpose baking mix in place of the featherlight?

    • Yes please, that'd be awesome Having a fun time trying to reply on my phone due to broken screen but will be back on tomorrow after results of doctor appointment to get to the bottom of why they've given me seemingly wrong advice re: next steps. Yup I'll admit to pity, anger, frustration and outright fear, been through the mill of emotions in this first week that's for sure. One thing before I go for that; back when I was self-diagnosing I wanted a full thyroid panel (T3, T4 etc.) and also ESR & CRP checks for vasculitis and similar maladies. Now it seems from my reading they can often follow celiac so my worry level of those has gone up a notch, more blood tests ahoy it seems? Main reason for worrying about those is the nearly constant tight / tender head I have at the moment. Top and sides of scalp. Could be the stress tensing the shoulders and occipital muscles at back of head but after the celiac diagnosis being missed I'm fearful of anything else being missed. Did anyone else have this tight head feeling at the start? Feels like the skin is being pulled inwards, sometimes goes down for a few minutes here and there and gets worse when sitting I think. I see the term "brain fog" a lot but luckily don't seem to have too much of that at present, this is more a physical sensation.
    • I don't have a lot of faith in the allergy testing naturalpaths do. I had them done, but really it wasn't very helpful. Foods that were okay on the blood work- I was still having obvious reactions to. Skin testing through an allergist didn't show up food allergies either. I agree the food elimination diet is a better way to go and doesn't cost a bunch of money. I did a whole 30 diet a while back that could have been helpful if the foods I reacted to were corn, dairy,  soy, grains and sugar- but I react to more than that.  I do need to do a major elimination diet- just haven't gotten up the willpower yet.   
    • Quick search gave too many responses to TGI Fridays but none to TGI Fridays Buns (or similar) so... I was talking with my sister-in-law (Gluten Intolerant) and she spoke highly of a pre-packaged bun from Fridays. I was hesitant but she gave me one (apparently you can buy them from the restaurant?) and I tried it. Since I'm slow to react I won't know about gluten for a bit but I can definitely say it is the closest to "real" I've had in years! Spongy, doesn't crumble while eating a sandwich and tastes good. Color me impressed! I tried to determine the manufacturer or if Fridays actually makes them but I can't locate anything worth pursuing. Anyone have information on this? Thanks in advance.
    • Thanks cyclinglady! I will!
    • You could ask the allergist to give you a starting point for an elimination diet. You would start out with 5 or so foods and then add in one new food a week to see if you react. If you react you of course drop that food. It is a bit of a pain as everything has to be basically single ingredient to start.  My allergist felt that was the best way to go and more accurate than blood testing.
