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!

    • Do you mean something like a protein powder you could mix up?  A lot of them in the US seem to be gluten free.  Maybe just go to your local store and read all the labels?
    • Yeah I ended up allergic to corn, olives, sesame, whey, and peanuts and intolerant to dairy, soy, yeast, enzyme issues with breaking down meats, and egg yolks, along with extreme bloat with any kind of carbs/sugars in moderate amounts. And very adverse reactions to certain artificial sweeteners. So your not alone in all the other issues cropping up, it happens as our bodies adjust.  I eat a bunch of stir frys with veggies, egg whites, plenty of  avocados, and toasted and raw forms of almonds, coconut, cashews, walnuts, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, flax seeds, sancha inchi seeds, chia seeds, and sunflower seeds in all forms including making them into butters, spreads, and incorporating them into sauces.   Most meals are forms of soups, omelettes, and stir frys. I do the seeds and nuts on rotation same with my veggies and snack on fruits in small amounts along with some homemade baked goods I make for markets. I do suggest a rotation of foods, my dietician said I need to rotate my foods to prevent more issues, making sure I am off one one for at least 7-14 days at a time completely. I find changing up the spices and rotating my cuisine base works well. I also make puddings, and protein shakes along with nut/seed milks, and different bases and extract flavorings to get my random cravings Taken care of. Guess take what you can from this and and see how it can help you,    As to the tinging, I ended up with both B vitamin and magnesium deficiency issues, the magnesium one caused a fire like tingling in my arms, legs and back, along with muscle pain. Ended up on a doctors best powder form of it so I can dose it out right, and found epsom salt bathes helped.  
    • Hi, I've gained so much knowledge on this forum over the past few months, which I am so thankful for. I can see how much hell people are going through with this disease and it's so lovely to see how much support and advice people give to others on here. I'd like a little bit of reassurance and advice myself from anyone that can help. I've been gluten free for six months. Two weeks after going gluten free I realised I also had a problem with corn so cut out processed food. Over the following weeks and months I continually had problems with food; fruit, dairy, a lot of vegetables, nuts, soya....it's basically dwindled down to just eating potatoes (not white potatoes), cucumber, lettuce, small amounts of red onion, spring onion, sprouts and beetroot. There may be more things I could be okay with but to be honest I'm too scared to try.  Is this all normal? Am I an extreme case? I've been taking some digestive enzymes and probiotics for about six weeks, my acid reflux has dramatically decreased but I always have a lot of loud noises going on in my guts, I'm guessing this is the probiotics working.  I've lost nearly 3st in weight since this started - which I'm not complaining about as I was overweight due to thyroid problems. I've had loads of blood tests done recently, all organs are working 'great' according to my doctor, the only thing they've picked up on is ketones, I seem to be having a glucose problem, which might explain my exhaustion and weight loss. I also have permanent numbness and sometimes tingling in one of my legs and sometimes hands and one shoulder, I thought it could have vitamin B12 deficiency but that's okay according to blood tests. I would be greatful for any replies. Thanks for reading.
    • Hi everyone, I am doing job in restaurant at evening 5 to 12 during working hours no time to do a dinner. I'm thinking to make a shake but don't know the gluten free vitamin or supplement brand which one is good for me and easily available in Berlin Germany to make me fit cause last one week i feel weak. I'm 28 year old. Sincerely
    • Hey there just wanted to warn anyone that has other allergies- these crackers may not be a good choice! I'm mildly sensitive to MSG- I only react if there's a giant amount like in Chinese food or Ramen noodles, etc.  I literally have a to eat TONS of a the offending food before reacting.  Anyway, I was excited to try these Trader Joes pumpkin crackers, kept hearing about them on the radio .... and they're gluten free!  (I have Hashi's).  I ate about 3/4 of the box last night. Woke up this morning with a red itchy face and nasal congestion, headache, anxiety. Hallmark symptoms for me of high MSG intake. (It does say yeast extract on the side but it's pretty far down the list). So if you're sensitive.... stay away! Apparently these particular crackers are loaded with it.
