I don't know about you, but I have found the most success with putting as many different flours and starches into a recipe as I can. If it calls for one cup starch, I do one third potato, one third tapioca, one third arrowroot. For flour, I'd do one third sorghum, one third rice, one third buckwheat, or something like that. This is a cupcake recipe, so maybe half fine white rice and half montina, then mix up the starches for the other half of the flour? I tend to avoid corn, but cornstarch sounds like it would be a good application here.

I've not heard mention of this before - can you tell me more????

Looks de-lish!

What will you do for the cake flour?

An all- purpose blend? Fine white rice and tap starch? think we need the X-gum?

I am going to try a blend with millet, white rice flour and almond flour and no x-gum. Will report back. Wait a minute - I will try half with no X and half with X to compare.

Sounds kinda like you're going to wind up with wholegrain cupcakes?

Neroli, I haven't actually tried the montina flour yet, I've been real lazy in the past few years about baking, and it's kinda expensive.

It's from some kind of ancient indian rice grass that's not actually rice. From what I've read, it's AMAZING to bake with.

I love millet in baking - it is so very mild yet adds some nutritional value. Actually, I think I will use chestnut flour. Love the stuff. I now have over 20 flours/starches to choose from!

Glutenfreemama says:

Indian Ricegrass ---Also known as Montina flour, grown and processed in Montana. This flour is high in fiber and protein. This flour should be combined with other gluten-free flours to have the best effect with baking. It can be used anywhere from 10% - 20% of my total flour blends. It should be introduced gradually into your diet as it is very high in fiber. To add more fiber to your diet, take 2 Tablespoons of flour out of the recipe and replace with 2 Tablespoons Montina. Montina (Indian Ricegrass) flour can be purchased all across the United States at health food stores or at the Amazing Grains Website. www.amazinggrains.com

I saw a Montina German Choc Cake recipe in Living Without Mag and it looked pretty darn good.

    • Acne are not itchy or only mildly itchy and they look like red bumps with or without white centers. The bumps are quite separated from each other. What did you start to eat after going gluten-free? More fruits and sugary foods? This can trigger acne.  http://www.ehealthstar.com/conditions/acne-vulgaris Dermatitis herpetiformis can be very itchy and the bumps are more close together and they tend to crust over.  
    • What about Xanthan gum?  It really bothers me, so I avoid most commercially processed gluten-free breads, etc.  Never bothers my hubby though.  
    • I use to get them before I went gluten-free.  I stopped eating oats because it also does give me canker sores and causes my toes to get cracked underneath.  
    • I had quite a few of the medical problems that you have before I figured out that gluten was the problem. I can’t do basic math or writing when I eat gluten also I get depressed, irritable, low energy, etc. The best route to go is to do an elimination diet and monitor how certain foods affect you. I eliminated MSG (Monosodium Glutamate), Nitrite, and oat based on the reactions that I get once I consume them. You must be disciplined on a gluten free diet, there is not such a thing as –It is just one cookie! If you can manage to go 100% gluten-free for three weeks and you see those problems going away, you will have a good idea if that is the cause of your problems. The blood test I did after being gluten-free for two years came back negative so the doctor just make me feel that I was crazy and making things up. I have a stool test done which came back with elevated igA also a gene test indicating I have two genes that code for gluten sensitivity. My lactose intolerance went away too, eating a lot of cheese now. Rash in arms? gone, Brown spots in teeth? Gone, Intestinal noises? Gone, Lack of bladder control? Gone, Constipation? Gone, and a lot others.   
    • Oh you're most welcome!  Another thing --- no steroids, oral or injected for 2 months prior to a dh biopsy. Lay off any topical steroid creams for 2 weeks prior. Really, stand your ground with them. It would also be great if you can get a friend or family member to go with you in case they take the biopsy from somewhere that you can't see such as the back of your neck. Your friend/family member can watch to make sure they don't take it directly ON a lesion. Do you have a primary care doc? You can also go to that doc & ask for a full celiac panel PLUS an eTG or TG3. 60% of people with dh test negative on the celiac blood panel but maybe you're one of the 40% who will test positive. It's worth a shot.
