:lol: aw we're not ready to call you Granny just yet...you're doing this for a good cause & I'm proud of you for choking that flax down.

Also, try it blended into a smoothie?

I'd love to put it in a smoothie, especially since they have become a way of life for me. I was having them because it was a fun way to have yogurt, but since I can't have yogurt I suppose I'm done with that. Oh well, the giganto-size tubs of cottage cheese are cheap at Costco. Lets just hope I don't use up all my apple butter before apples are ripe again.

Nope. I can have milk and dairy, they aren't a problem. The cultures and aging are the problem :(

Don't be sorry. It'll be a summer full of milkshakes that I can totally justify with flax. I'm gonna get so fat. :lol:

I'm laughing so hard at your banter. Thanks for the humor :)

My last hurrah before dieting to lose my 5 extra pounds I gained this year was Betty Crocker's chocolate cake. I added the 3 oz. of cream cheese, as suggested on this board, and made a delicious chocolate frosting in a saucepan over med heat, and voila! My mom thought it was FUDGE Cake and made me take the leftovers home with me b/c she liked it so much, hehe. I think it surprised her that gluten-free could taste so good.

I am not making this tonight, but I promised to post it:

Pound Cake

1 cup Sweet White Rice Flour

1/2 cup Sorghum Flour

1/4 cup Corn Starch

2 tsp. Baking Powder

1 tsp. Xanthan Gum

1 cup Butter, room temperature

1 cup Granulated Sugar

4 Eggs

2 tsp. Vanilla Extract (or lemon or almond or orange extract, if you prefer!)

Directions:

Beat the butter until creamy and smooth. Add the sugar and beat into the butter until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Add the vanilla (or other extract) and blend until completely incorporated.

In a separate bowl, combine the flours, cornstarch, xanthan gum and baking powder and blend together with a whisk. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and blend until fully mixed.

Spread into a greased 8 or 9-inch bread pan.

Bake for 50-60 minutes at 350°F.

Cool for about 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan and cool completely.

I dust it with powdered sugar sometimes (but not in the car) :)

and it is REALLY good if used in strawberry short cake with fresh whipped cream.

I'm pretty excited for tonight, my mom picked strawberries for us the other day, I unfortunately am stuck home with a knee Injury and couldn't pick with her. :( BUT she mentioned my favorite way to eat berries this am and I can't quit thinking of it! Very simple, berries, a little milk, and just a sprinkle of sugar...soooo yummy!!!! Can't wait!!

We had more strawberry flax milkshakes last night. I got my husband to have one with me, it was very difficult not to gloat.

All I know is, she emailed the pic to me, I drooled all over my laptop...and I said "I'll give you a buck if you post it for the gang on the dessert thread".

:lol:

I know it's lemony and I know it's good....but I'll let her share the the rest.

Yes, Irish Heart made me do it! laugh.gif And I don't wanna see any more fork marks on anyone's monitor! tongue.gif

The recipe is a gluten-free Lemon Pound Cake with a lemon glaze. Recipe is by Annalise Roberts from Gluten-Free Baking Classics, one of my favorite baking books. I did use Authentic Foods Gluten-Free Classical Blend flour. It's so fine and powdery, you'd think it was wheat.

I totally followed the recipe. If you make it, be sure you do not over mix it. When the ingredients were just mixed together, I mixed it for exactly 30 seconds as the recipe called for.

Here are some variations not mentioned on the above website:

Lemon Blueberry Pound Cake: Stir in 2/3 to 3/4 cup fresh dry blueberries before spreading batter in pan. (Next time I'm going to give them a dusting of flour first as they seemed to sink...I should have known that.)

Lemon Poppy Seed Pound Cake: Stir in 1/3 cup poppy seeds before spreading batter in pan.

Lemon Glaze:

1/4 cup granulated sugar

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

1. Put sugar and lemon juice in small saucepan and whisk over medium-high heat until sugar is dissolved.

2. Use pastry brush to brush glaze on cooled pound cake

I actually let the glaze cool until it was syrupy before brushing in on the cake.

The recipe was a huge hit when served to gluten-eating friends today!!! And I am the only one eating gluten-free. biggrin.gif

Edit: I contacted Annalise regarding the "sinking blueberries" and dusting them with flour and she said, "Yes, you can do that, or add 1/3 to 1/2 of the plain batter to the pan, then stir the blueberries into the remaining batter (still in the bowl), then add that to the pan." I will try that next time and also it would work with a chocolate chip pound cake.

That looks so good and easy. The doctor said today that when my vision comes back fully I can go tyramine-light instead of tyramine free, yay! That means I can have yogurt and make the cake as soon as I can see like a normal person again. I also apparently need to stop clicking this dessert thread because once I drop 10% of my weight I can go back to eating as much tyramine as makes me happy.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?
