Gluten Free Christmas Cake Recipes.....
0

3 posts in this topic

So, does anyone out there have a recipe for Christmas cakes that work? I made a lovely tasting cake this year ,but it .... lacked cohesion. If it was in the fridge, it was fine, but who wants to eat really cold Christmas cake. So, I resorted to ... Christmas cake crumble, muck a bit of butter on it and eat it with a fork, the taste was there! Being in Canada the 'ready to eat' baked goodies are not as freely available as elsewhere. (most of the mail order places are in the States, and only ship to the States) So, what do you all think?? Any ideas??

Failed fruitcake is crumbled with melted dark chocolate, rolled into balls, drizzled with white chocolate, and served as Fruitcake Truffles!!

Rich Fruit Cake

450g sultanas ...... 450g currants

125g raisins ......... 50g glacé cherries

175g mixed peel .. 125g blanched almonds

30 ml treacle ........ 150 ml brandy*

350g butter ........... 350g brown sugar

6 eggs

450g plain gluten-free flour 2 1/4 ts xanthan gum

Pinch of salt ......... 5ml mixed spice

Soak the fruit in booze with treacle.

* choose: sherry, port, brandy, rum

Preheat oven to 140°C. Grease a 20cm square tin, then line with greaseproof or baking paper.

Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy.

Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Add the soaked fruit, and then the almonds. Stir well.

Sift the flour, gum and mixed spice

Fold into the fruit mixture with a large metal spoon.

Spread the batter into the tin - leaving no gaps, but not packing it in too firmly.

Bake 140°C 4 hours. Check if done.

Remove and douse with extra alcohol.

Fold the upstanding liner paper down - covering any gap on the top with a doubled sheet of paper.

Wrap pan in a clean fluffy bath towel. When the cake is cold, remove from the tin.

Leaving the lining - and topper - intact, wrap in foil.

Either wrap in plastic or store in an airtight container for up to 3 months. If it is very hot, keep in refridgerator.

    • Thankyou both! I was wondering if my high levels left much doubt on the diagnosis. I don't see the GI until the 15th Sep and I don't think I can stand to eat gluten in that time. If he tells me to I will do so after then. After 25 years of symptoms I don't think there is much chance of healing my bowel In a couple of weeks. I'm actually terrified of the damage they might find. But I think I will need the endo since there may be other things going on with me. So great they didn't put your son through the biopsy! Once I have a formal diagnosis I have my kids to worry about also. I can't even stand the thought of my daughter having a blood test. I think she would need to be sedated as she is so fearful and pain sensitive. My son is not yet 2 so I don't think they will test him. I'm feeling so off at the moment. I think I have some anxiety and reflux going on complicating things quite a bit.
    • My son's antibodies were 300. Based on his extremely high levels, his pediatric GI suggested genetic testing instead of the biopsy. Genetic testing can't diagnose celiac on its own but combined with such high levels, the gi dr was confident a positive genetic test would confidently diagnose celiac. He warned that biopsies are small snapshots of the intestine and can miss damage. He said this is an approach used very often in Europe but not as much in the US. What sold me on that approach was the ability to put my son directly on a gluten free diet instead of waiting three weeks for the biopsy, during which time he would continue to eat gluten and feel terrible. I'm not sure if this is more common with younger patients though (our son is two), based on the idea that he's had less time to inflict damage that would show in a biopsy? We are very happy that we immediately started the gluten free diet and chose the genetic testing. Our son got the proper diagnosis and his recent number shows a drop to 71 after only 4.5 months gluten free! Not sure if this helps. Good luck and I hope you feel better soon!
    • We have been off gluten for a while now, and symptoms return when I've allowed gluten full meals… so something still isn't sitting right with me.  Checking with her doc about seeing a pediactric GI although I'm not sure how long that will take since we live in small town America. I know she didn't get at least one of the recommended full panel tests but maybe two, can someone help clarify, or is she missing two? DGP for sure and possibly EMA? And if I understand what I'm reading in other posts that the DGP can be more accurate? Thanks Her blood panel results: Ttg ab iga <.5u/ml ttg igg <.8u/ml aga ab iga <.2 u/ml aga an igg <.7u/ml iga 61mg/dL  
    • I was tested for the full panel, I believe. I had normal values for t-transglutaminase (ttg) igg,t-transglutaminase (ttg) iga, deamidated gliadin abs igg, deamidated gliadin abs iga, and immunoglobulin a qn serum.
