Gluten Free Easy Sponge Cake

Makes one sponge cake (length of a jelly roll pan or full sized cookie sheet), serves plenty! (depending on the size of your slices.

Ingredients:

8 eggs, room temperature

1 cup powdered sugar

1/2 cup potato starch (NOT flour!)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla extract

1 teaspoon gluten-free lemon extract

1 teaspoon gluten-free almond extract

TOPPING:

freshly whipped cream

fresh fruit (strawberries and blueberries)

powdered sugar (for dusting)

Directions:

1. Separate the egg whites and the yolks.

2. Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form and set aside.

3. Beat the egg yolks until light yellow and creamy - about 2 - 3 minutes)

4. Sift together powdered sugar, potato starch (not flour!) and salt.

5. Add sifted dry ingredients to the beaten egg yolks and mix thoroughly.

6. Add the extracts. Mix again.

7. Using a spatula or spoon (not your mixer!), gently fold the egg whites into the batter.

8. Preheat the oven to 325F.

9. Line a jelly roll pan or a full sized cookie sheet pan with parchment paper.

10. Gently smooth the cake batter out to the length of your pan with even depth. (My pan is 18" by 13" - and the batter is about 2/3 - 1" thick).

11. Bake the cake for 15 minutes then turn off the oven and open the oven door. (I open the oven by cracking it open about 2-3 inches.)

12. Leave the cake to cool in the oven for 5-8 minutes.

13. Remove from oven and cool.

14. Gently lift the cooled cake up off the parchment paper just to loosen it from the paper. Lay the cake back down on to the paper. You will use the parchment to help you roll the cake.

15. Top with freshly whipped cream and fresh fruit slices.

16. Have a piece of fresh parchment paper the length of your cake OR a serving platter that fits nearby. Use the parchment paper to help you roll the cake. (I roll it so I have LONG cake rather than rolling the short end and have a HUGE rolled cake.)

This sounds yummy...I may try to put the mix into an individual 4 inch springform pan to see how it cooks up for individual sponge cakes.

    • What's an " iodine test"?  Haven't heard doctors doing that to diagnose DH.
    • Hello! I've just been given my blood results and told they are highly suggestive of coeliacs but will have to wait till next month to see the gastroenterologist and who knows how much longer for a biopsy. My igA, igG and tissuetrans igA were all over 250 and tissuetrans igG was the only one that was normal. These results don't mean much to me yet but I'm told they are very high. I'm now quite fearful of how much damage I've gone to myself. I've had stomach problems for 25 years (just turned 40) and have often steered clear of too much bread and pasta for how bloated it made me feel but the symptoms were always vague and inconsistent so I kept eating. I had a couple of boats in the past few months (thanks kids) which I took a lot longer than normal to recover from then last Friday I had a blowout with wine, cheese, crackers, pizza and chocolate cake. I'm sure I've probably had blowouts like that before but I have never felt so sick before and am still slowly recovering. This is what finally prompted me to go back to my GP after being fobbed off so many times over the years. So I guess my question and my concern is whether there is still  chance of a false positive with levels like this? I worry what else it might be if not coeliac. I'm also worried that I may have done so much damage to myself that I will have several disorders going on! Thankyou!!    
    • Here's what the Klondike Bar makers say on the FAQ page of their website (August 2016): Are your products gluten free? Nope. They are not. We have not validated for gluten free. We do not operate allergen-free manufacturing sites, however we do have allergen management programs in all our facilities. The intent of these programs is to avoid unintentional cross-contamination of allergens between products. Our product labels adhere to the FDA’s strict regulations regarding declaration of ingredients and allergens. We do not use the terms “Natural” or “Artificial Flavorings” to hide the existence of any allergens. RECIPES CAN CHANGE. We strongly recommend that allergic consumers refer to ingredient declarations EVERY TIME they purchase processed foods.
    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone!
