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!

    • Hey guys so question. I still am going through some of the motions to finally be diagnosed. I has a really bad case of acid reflux a few days ago and now i feel soo sick. Im still eating gluten because i got a negative biaopsy test but ive been told thag i more than likely still have it because its really hard to detect. Well i drank beer last night and had a poutine today stupid i know and now i feel soooo sick. And only felt really sick after the poutine. Now my question is can your symptoms get worse all of a sudden??  I have many other symptoms thaat read celiac deisease for most of my life. But since all doctors told me you have anxiety ibs and fibro at 28 years old. I just baiscally gave up and figured this was going to be my life feeling like crap for the rest of my life. Any thoughts??? Thanks guys. Sorry for the novel lol

    • I have 2 insurance policies, one with my husband's company and one through mine. I also stretch out the more major work into the next year, so I can make the most use of my benefits. So, a dental implant for me takes about a year for me to complete.  I have the post put in at the end of one year and the tooth made about 6 months later. Honestly, the insurance company probably hates me because I max out my benefits every year. You do what ya gotta do!  I still have to pay for some of the work out of pocket but about 75% gets covered. If you pay cash for procedures then they usually charge a lower price. Haggle with the dentist over price. They like getting cash.
    • Did your doctor check for SIBO, H. pylori, ulcers, etc. when he was obtaining biopsies to check for celiac disease?
