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!

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.

    • Welcome!   You were smart to think about cross contamination.  Although it is great that there are so many gluten-free options out there, in the beginning it is best to try a whole foods diet, until your son feels a bit better.  The learning curve for the gluten-free diet is steep.  It is better for you to get everything down before letting others feed him.   When I was diagnosed, my hubby had been gluten free for 12 years.  I thought I knew the drill and converted right over to those gluten-free goodies I baked him.  Turned out, like many of us, I had some food inolerances not related to gluten but as a result of gut damage.  So, additives like Xantham gum made me think I was getting glutened, but I was not.  So, again, try to stick to naturally gluten free foods that are less processed for a while.  When you do venture out, I use "find me gluten free" and read the reviews from celiacs (not a person who thinks gluten-free is a way to lose weight! )   Here are some great tips from out Newbie 101 thread:  
    • I have the same problem. Was told it was psoriasis but no treatments worked even injections. I was daignosed celiac in may, and noticed a year ago the palm of my hand would itch intensely then get small blisters. I believe they are both dh. Have been gluten-free since diagnosis but still have issues with both areas. Thankful digestive issues cleared but would love to know how long before they clear up? I hope we both get feed back and best wishes to you!
    • Yes it most certainly could be a false negative, and I would bet you a dozen donuts that it is (gluten free, of course.   )  At the very least you can be sure it is related to gluten.  These gluten rashes take forever to clear up.  I don't know about you, but whenever I start to doubt my gluten intolerance, I just look at my skin, and the old blood stains on my sheets, and I am reassured that it's not all in my head, and I need to avoid gluten as if it were a bucket of battery acid.
    • Hello, My fiance and I are going to Singapore for our honeymoon next year and I was wondering if anyone knew any cafes/restaurants etc that have gluten-free dishes? We previously went two years ago and enjoyed ourselves so much that we definitely wanted to go back our our honeymoon. Catch is I got diagnosed as being gluten intolerant a few months ago, negative for Coeliac though. If I eat gluten I have bad nausea, bloating, diarrhea etc. Not pretty for a honeymoon :-) I am more than happy to eat fruit at breakfast and make do with steamed rice at dinner etc but if anyone has any ideas on anywhere I can safely eat that would be much appreciated. I don't care how much it costs! Also is it possible for me to bring packaged gluten-free food into Singapore from Australia? I am not sure on the rules. Thank you!!
    • Went in and talked to the manager of our pm and asked about the gluten free pizza, and he told me he can't guarantee its 100% gluten free because of the flour in the air from the other crusts being made.  I value the honesty.   The other employee also mentioned changing gloves.   I was thinking wow great, until I walked out and got to thinking about cross contamination from everyone grabbing the toppings out of the same bins and spreading the sauce with the same utensils.    My son was just diagnosed this week so we are new to the whole lifestyle.   So any help or info is greatly appreciated.    Thanks
