Help With gluten-free Cupcake Recipe
0

9 posts in this topic

My daughter turns 10 Friday, and she wants these gluten-free cupcakes in a recipe book for her class birthday party. That is no problem, but for a birthday cake later that night, she also asked if I could do the cherry recipe. I am not an improv baker, and as expensive as the flours are I don't want to mess up! So what do you think - would this cupcake recipe work for a cake too?

Flour Blend (and if you don't have this- it is SO good for any flour substitute):

1 C. white or brown rice flour

1 C. sorghum flour

1 C tapioca flour

1 C cornstarch

1 C almond or coconut flour

Cupcakes:

1 jar cherries

1 C sugar

2 eggs

1-1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 C vegtable oil

1/2 cup soymilk (or other milk)

1 tsp vanilla

mix bake 20 min at 350 degrees

What do you think? Would I use this for a cake recipe too? I wonder what temperature I'd cook it at for how long - 350 for 25 is what another cake recipe says - but that is for chocolate.

And this is from "Recipes for Gluten Free Kids" that a friend got us from Sams. I LOVE this cookbook.

Thank you!

I LOVE this site!

I baked my Gluten Free German Chocolate cake at 350 degree for 35 minutes I set the timer for 25 then added 5 minutes to the timer until I got a clean toothpick. For the icing to give it more of a cherry taste I would go with a white icing with more cherries and juice in it, it turns a light pink but with a little food coloring you can take it to a red or almost any other color. Good luck!

it's hard to tell how much cake batter this is going to make, etc...and therefore what pan size you would use, which would effect the baking time. Does it make 12 or 24 cupcakes? usually a 24 cupcake recipe will yield 2 8"-9" layers. those I would bake for 25-30 min. at 350. but I would also be "toothpick" checking at the 25 min mark. The worst thing to do to gluten-free cakes is over bake. They will also continue to bake a wee bit in the pan after you take them out.

I have a really delicious, fail proof chocolate cake recipe that only uses 2 rice flours if you'd like the recipe.

good luck!

Oops - sorry. It is 1-1/4 cup of the flour mix

Thanks Jeannie - You helped me realize that I should double the recipe for a cake, because this is only for 12 cupcakes. So thank you! I'd love your choc cake recipe when you have time to write it down. - Bobbie

Great idea on the icing! It will make it a nice pink - perfect for a group of 10 year old girls.

I have no idea on what to tell you about your cherry cake. I still am just buying Betty Crocker mixes since our diagnosis in December. LOL But, I have one turning 9 on Saturday. My MIL is making a gluten free strawberry cake with cream cheese icing. The funny thing is that my daughter asked for half lime green icing and half pink. So we are having a green and pink strawberry cake! Who says gluten free can't be interesting.

Note: If you ever do just buy the gluten free cake mixes, if you will empty a pack of instant pudding into it (not made) it makes them so yummy! It makes them "heavy" too. Sometimes I can eat a cupcake and still want another one or two or three. These are very heavy and filling! I can stretch them out longer.

Happy 10th B-day to your daughter!

Great pudding tip! Thanks!

And yes - we love betty crocker. I've relied on her cake mixes, and some non gluten-free kids thought it was "okay", but when I made this other recipe before the kids thought it was better than wheat cake. So - you know kids - the last thing I want is for her friends to go "yuck!"

Good luck with the party and that cake!

Happy 9th to your daughter!

    • Marip, Have you been diagnosed with celiac disease or Non-celiac Gluten Intolerance?  I notice you joined in 2014.  Did you ever go guten free?  How can we help?   Sorry, I'm not a stool expert!  You could Google it...  Malabsorption?  Standard lab tests that check for anemia and vitamin deficiencies, etc.  should help make that diagnosis.  
    • You can eat just a slice or two (or equivalent) of bread a day for accurate testing.   I understand about the high deductibles.  We're self-employed and we pay for our health insurance. 
    • Sure, if it's gluten free, then fine.  I am very allergic (like anaphylactic) to ibuprofen and aspirin.  So, in my case, I would just tough it out.  Go to bed.  Sleep it off.....eventually. My money is on the garlic and onions.  I can't consume those either (damn that zonulin/leaky gut -- google it along with Dr. Fasano).  I just season with salt, pepper.  Boring.  But no gut issues.  I'm hoping like my lactose intolerance (resolved), that I will get garlic and onions back.   Finally, sometimes just eating anything can hurt when you still have intestinal damage.  Hopefully, you'll feel better in two or three hours if it's celiac related.  Longer if it's an intolerance (leaky gut thing....) Hugs!      
    • I read on their website that all Advil is gluten free, I had such bad pinching cramping today(which I don't why since I prepared all my food at home today.) I made a pot roast, salt garlic, onions...No gluten but still pain, That's the only thing I ate today..I don't eat breakfast or anything.   Anyways.   Is it a good idea to take Advil for the cramping? That's how I would describe it like someone is reaching inside me and pinching me and twisting my insides.    This is what I took  
    • I'll give my PCP a call tomorrow and see what they can offer. My only worry is the expense as anymore tests will put me behind in being able to afford to see the GI. I have high deductible insurance but get money put into my HSA. I'm still trying to pay off the CT scan though. Which is why I'm trying to pick and choose which poses the greatest risk for me right now and what can wait. (Though I would prefer not to wait on any of it.)

      I really do hope its only IBS. Though I always worry IBS is more or less a doctors way of saying "I have no clue" at that point. :C

      Again, I'll be sure to give my PCP a call tomorrow then and see what the options are. I can feel a lot better trying the blood work first. however, once that is done, do I still need to be on a gluten diet before the endoscopy? Also, is it ok if I still mildly reduce the gluten. As in, can I avoid a whole wheat pasta dinner, but still be eating the peanut butter crackers? That sort of thing. Again I guess that is more of a doctor related question. I just wasn't sure if in order to raise your chance, you have to mass consume gluten or not. (Its already in just about everything to begin with.)   --Edit--
      I just now reread the part that you still need to be on the gluten foods even for biopsy so I'll be sure to do that too.
