Pumpkin Cake

I found a recipe for a super easy pumpkin cake, and it's egg free too. I don't know how to link since I'm on my phone, but it is bigredkitchen.com. Two ingredients pumpkin cake with apple cider glaze. The blog post was old so this may be old news to some but I thought it was worth sharing.

While this is not from a gluten-free blog, I simply substituted gluten-free cake mix for regular mix. It is so simple..one box of cake mix (I used bisquick) and one can of pumpkin puree. Mix together, pour into a cake pan and bake at 350 for about 24 minutes. I made a cream cheese frosting instead of the apple cider icing and it was delicious!

So I tried this today... I was very hopeful that it would work, provided the reviews in the comments of the recipe and also the picture. I used Hodgson Mill yellow cake mix, added a 15 oz. can of pumpkin (not pie filling), and some vanilla and cinnamon. Put it in a greased 9 x 11 pan, baked it for a while at 350 F. It didn't rise at all. I couldn't get the toothpick to come out clean no matter how long I baked it, and it wasn't at all springy, so I started getting nervous. I put a powdered sugar glaze on it (powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla), and let it cool. When I started cutting it, it was really tough, and it was very dense (think pumpkin brownies). My dad and brother deemed it rubbery, and when my dad doesn't like something, that's saying a lot. I wasn't even brave enough to try it.

At least I was only out about $3 for the cake mix... Did I do something wrong or is this just a failed recipe?

If you want a good pumpkin cake, try Really Great Food Company. They are the absolute best! Their great products include banana bread, pumpkin spice bread/cake, lemon poppy seed bread, corn muffins, Aunt Tootie's devil's food cake mix. I have been celiac for 8 years, and trust me, these are the very best. It is worth the shipping. You won't be disappointed.

I am thinking it might be because the recipe is for a standard gluten cake mix which is bigger than a gluten free cake mix?

The cake mix was supposed to make two 8" or one 9x13" cake. I thought that's what the 'regular' cake mixes are supposed to make, too.

I made it with gluten free bisquick. Maybe your mix was too high quality? (I am not familiar with that brand). Sorry it didn't work for you.

ok gluten free bisquick has more baking powder to make it rise more.

did you use a whole box of gluten-free bisquick?

Yes, the whole box. But to clarify, it is a box of gluten-free bisquick cake mix, not just regular gluten-free bisquick. But I do agree with you...the extra baking powder probably made the difference.

I didn't know there is a gluten-free bisquick cake mix either! I want to compare the ingredients side by side too.

    • Should I get tested for Celiac Disease?
      I wanted to come back and give an update. I decided to have my rash biopsied when I got home from vacation and the results thankfully came back positive for DH. What really prompted me to go ahead with that was how reliably the rash would worsen within mere hours of eating gluten. I figured it would be the easiest way for me to definitely know and since I could actually see the damage I was pretty confident by eating gluten until the appointment something would show up. Luckily my experiments of going multiple days here and there in the weeks prior to the test didn't effect the results. (Obviously that probably isn't recommended and I was taking a chance at inconclusive results by going ahead with it so I'm fortunate I got the positive results I expected.) The dermatologist wants me to see a GI doc but for now I'm holding off on doing that because of all the reasons I mentioned previously. It is my understanding that DH qualifies me for the tax write off for food and the small intestine biopsy would just be a technicality and see how much intestinal damage is present. I will follow up with my family doc soon to do blood work and check for any deficiencies. Since finding out I've done pretty well. I did discover gluten in my shampoo after wondering why my elbows had flared up when I hadn't eaten gluten that day. I had gluten unintentionally this weekend in some sushi and I'm recovering from that at the moment but it hasn't been too bad compared to how I've felt most days for the last year and a half while eating it. I did connect with a lady in my ED recovery group who has celiac and we have been talking about navigating gluten free in the context of recovery/remission from anorexia. I think part of me was scared I'd become afraid of food again but I think as long as my only rule is to replace gluten I will be fine.  Now my latest gluten discovery is in my home hair color. I was about to color my grays when I read the label and noticed one ingredient was wheat gluten. I guess I'll exchange that for something different. If I was getting it done at a salon I probably wouldn't worry because of the way they rinse it out with your head tipped back in the bowl but at home I think it's harder to keep the water from running into my mouth accidentally. If I hadn't had the shampoo incident I probably wouldn't be so cautious. I'm sure some people can relate to trying to get well and not wanting to make things worse again! I hope everyone here is doing well!
    • Can U A Bone Marrow Donor?
      Another reply to an old thread. We have a family friend whose son (aged 4) is struggling with leukemia. I went through the initial process (online screening question/answer form) of donating bone marrow, but was immediately rejected by the automatic screening due to my Celiac Disease. 
    • TRUSTING OTHERS about GLUTEN! how do you know if someone has used gluten free flour?
      It can be difficult to refuse food from others but, with time, you can learn to not let it bother you.  Yeah, easier said than done, I know.  But your sense of humor came through in places in your post so use that to make "empowered no BS responses"!  
    • What Are Your Brands & Flavors Of Gluten Free Ice Cream ?
      This is a common sense answer!  I used to eat Godiva years ago and was dismayed they had no interest in appealing to anyone with a food allergy/intolerance.  That's OK......Ghirardelli chocolates are very good about divulging what they do and most of their chocolates are gluten-free.  Again, you have to understand label reading and investigate further, if need be.  Turns out, I think their chocolates are just as good, if not better.
    • Children and Gluten Freedom
      How do you know when your child has gluten sensitivity, gluten intolerance, or celiac disease? If gluten issues run in your family and you know there is a predisposition to having problems with gluten in foods, then you may be alert to signs that it has been passed on to your child.

      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.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
