Birthday Cake?
0

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.

This sounds promising, and I have coconut flour, yes!!! Nothing like chocolate cake, guess I know what I'm doing on my day off, haha😃

    • First, do you have celiac disease?  I assume you do.  Have you recently had a celiac antibodies follow-up blood test panel to see if gluten has been actually getting into your diet by accident or through cross contamination?  If you haven't had the test, you should ask your doctor for one.  You could also also ask for a follow-up endoscopy to see if you intestines have truly healed.  This will rule out if gluten is really the problem.    If gluten is not the problem, then your doctor needs to check you for other issues, like SIBO. There is a test to check for SIBO.  Has this been done?   Once a celiac, always a celiac.  There is no cure for celiac disease except to remain on a gluten free diet for life.    
    • I am so confused right now.... 6 years ago I went on gluten free diet... after being on it for the first yr I was 100%better up until 5 months ago in got the "flu" the doctors told me to cut out dairy sonic did and my diarrhea  became better but not completely gone would not have it every day tho. I went to the gi doctor and they said to cut out fructose and dairy and keep gluten out... yesterday I went to the dietitian to see what I can eat and she gave me the list for fructose... she said it should have been on a antibiotic for sibo.... eventually I will be able to add dairy back and maybe gluten.... I said how can I add gluten back when this was my first problem... she goes well through fructose goes hand in hand with it... I said with gluten I vomit and am sick for weeks.... fructose isn't that bad I vomit sometimes but I'm not sick for weeks.... I'm just confused on really what is going on and was wondering if you or someone you know had sibo from gluten and or fructose and how Is this all related?
    • I see no one has responded to your query.  Unfortunately I have yet to try making a pie crust.  It was something I never mastered before going gluten free.  Have you looked on Pinterest?  You might find something there.
    • I honestly feel like both doctors think it's all in my head even though there is proof.  Yeah there was a point when I felt crazy.  That was when I was being shuffled from dr to dr being given individual diagnoses of my problems.  None of those diagnoses ever made me get better.  Seriously I was diagnosed with heart palpitations, neurocardiogenic syncope, I was given a butt load of steroids because a dr felt like I was producing too much adrenaline, freaking had a few tell me I was depressed, and the good ol IBS.  It seemed most wanted to push pills.  It's all just ridiculous!
    • I can't believe your doctors!!! You have a daughter who is dx'd already! Yet the ped doesn't want to test your other kids unless you have a dx????!!! Are you kidding me???!!! That's absurd!!! They have a first degree relative who has been dx'd with celiac already. There is no need to wait to see what you turn out to be!! And then, and then, and then....don't even get me started on your doctor!!! Does he have brain damage? Oh this is insane & ridiculous!  I have never heard of a disease that doctors are so unwilling to consider or test for OR to diagnose as this one! Usually they are hot to trot to make a dx but say the word celiac & they shake in their boots. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
