Birthday Cake?

14 posts in this topic

I'm gluten and lactose intolerant.

My birthday is coming up. I'm inviting a couple of friends over (3 or 4) for a slumber party (I'm 14). I wanna do a birthday cake but I'm not sure what to do. My mom wants to make a normal cake and buy me a gluten free cupcake.

I dont wanna do that. Does anyone have a good gluten free/milk free cake recipe? That's good?

Should I make It from scratch or use Betty Crocker mix? I don't wanna have to go out and buy guar gum and xanthum gum and stuff. So is a cake mix my best bet?

Should I make a cupcake for everyone? Or should I just make cake?

Our family gluten-free and gluten eaters all ask for the one of these birthday cakes.

Bob's Red Mill Chocolate Cake - it calls for milk, but we have used rice milk depending on who's going to eat it. I also add 1 cup of chocolate chips to the mix to make it extra chocolaty. -- This one works great as double layer cake or cupcakes - I generally make a fudgy frosting, but my kids also like when I add a touch of peppermint extract to white frosting.

Paula Dean's Strawberry Cake - this one we use Betty Crocker's gluten-free Yellow cake mix as a substitute for reg cake mix. I have made the cream cheese frosting it calls for, but have also just added pureed strawberries to other frostings - again depending on whose allergies/intolerances I'm working around. http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/paula-deen/simply-delicious-strawberry-cake-recipe/index.html

Have a wonderful birthday :)

Gluten Free Pantry also makes good cake mixes. I really like the chocolate. If you want to have a good homemade pizza that all will like their French Bread Mix makes a really good crust. It is a sticky dough so it has to be spread but even the gluten eaters I have given it to like it.

Ok thanks :) ya I'm gonna try Betty Crocker.

And I was thinking Mexican food for dinner. Corn tortillas and flour tortillas if people want.

Oh do you think I should make cake or cupcakes? It would be cool if people could decorate their own cupcakes right?

When I want cake I use the Betty Crocker gluten-free chocolate mix and add 1 can of Sprite Zero to it, nothing else! Mix and bake. Times are the same as the box for the most part, and I use the Betty Crocker frosting, rainbow chip was the latest obsession haha sooooooo yummy...

Glutino has a chocolate cake which is just heavenly, and can be easily adjusted to be made dairy-free.

Sage, I am 34 and I will tell you that there is no such thing as too old for cupcakes! The idea of cupcakes and decorating your own is great. Heck, then you could even have more than one kind of frosting too for whatever makes people happiest.

That definitely sounds worth trying :)

Never too old for cupcakes! I'm 30 and prefer them over cake! Lol just made some a few months ago with "tie dyed" frosting, so fun!

Cherrybrook Kitchen makes a pretty good cake mix that can be made easily dairy-free. They also make a frosting mix (don't buy the pre-made stuff, just the mix) that can be made dairy free (all products are inherently dairy free, but you add the milk you want - rice milk, almond milk, etc. ). The frosting requires butter/margarine, which you could make dairy -free.

I always do the Vanilla Bean cake from the Spunky Coconut (www.spunkycoconut.com) for my son. Always a hit.

I have one cake recipe. It goes for every birthday.

Chocolate cake

1 C. Hershey's Cocoa

1 and 1/2 C. Sugar

2 C. Coconut Flour

1 C. Butter

1/2 C. Coconut oil

1 and 1/2 tsp baking soda

9 eggs

1 and 1/2 C. milk or milk substitute like almond milk or hemp milk.

1 tsp. vanilla

Dash salt.

I just dump it all together and beat the heck out of it.

(They say to alternate wet and dry ingredients and to beat after each egg but I never do.)

Bake 350 for 45 min to an hour. til tooth pick comes out clean.

They say eggs should be room temp but I don't bother.

    • Washing Dishes
      Gluten is a very sticky protein that cannot be removed easily. Non porous items can be washed safely and effectively, being very careful to throughly rinse, use a dedicated sponge/washcloth to wash. If washed by hand wash and rinse under hot running water not in a sink of water if you don't have a dedicated gluten free kitchen. My kitchen is totally gluten free and I still rinse under running water. I attempted to use the dishwasher for the first time yesterday and I feel like I've been glutened so I'm not sure if it's safe or not. There was no gluten containing dishes in it, but it's a rental house so God knows how the previous tenants used it and whether there may be any lingering gluten in it. I also have other issues that cause a lot of the same problems so I'm going to keep trying to use it for a few days and see if I continue to feel glutened or not. As far as counter tops, sinks etc, any non porous surfaces can be wiped clean, but it takes multiple wipe downs with multiple sponges. Thoroughly wipe down and rinse out the sink to rid it off any lose gluten particles. The same thing I did when first going gluten free. Only the kitchen I had then had laminated counter tops that were all scratched up. There is no getting gluten out of those kind of counter tops or cracks around the sink, etc. The ONLY way to possibly destroy/remove gluten from surfaces it's stuck in is to heat it above temperatures most things cannot tolerate and not all ovens can reach. You're looking at like 600°-700° F for a minimum of 30 min. So some stuff can be effectively cleaned in the self cleaning mode of an oven if it has one. Most cookware and utensils cannot tolerate those temperatures though and it's impossible to heat counters and other items to that temperature. Therefore being in a blended house is very risky if not done right. When I went gluten free everyone in my house went gluten free. Except the fish, you can't find gluten free fish food. My husband who shouldn't eat gluten anyway is gluten free and all our animals are on a grain free diet. Even my snake is gluten free since I breed my own feeder mice and feed them a gluten free organic diet. 
    • to biopsy or not?
      A small suggestion........for banana bread, try the King Arthur gluten free banana bread mix.  Yeah, I know......it's a mix but sometimes, time is short and a mix works well.  My husband and I were shocked at how good this is!  it rose up high and beautiful in the oven and has a really good banana flavor to it.  Really....give it a try.  It is so easy to make also! http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/gluten-free-banana-bread   The ATK cookbook is a keeper for every Celiac!
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      Yup.....what she said!  In non-porous materials such as stainless steel or aluminum pans, a good washing is all you need to make the pan safe to use.
    • Hawaiian-style BBQ Shrimp (Gluten-Free)
      Mayonnaise is the key to this recipe, which delivers tasty, tangy, golden grilled shrimp. View the full article
    • Oat Flour making me sick?
      I wouldn't be afraid to use a stainless steel pot that other things had been cooked in AS LONG AS YOU WASH THEM VERY WELL before making her food.

      Hello cycling lady, have you noticed my picture is showing up as you?  Have no idea why but it's rather disconcerting to see my picture and your words 😉  Do you know how to fix it?  You seem to have far more experience with this board than I do

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.
