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.

    • I tried the iodine test but couldn't leave it on very long because it itched too much. I left it on maybe 30 minutes lol. Did anyone try it and have the same response??
    • Had my scope today. Dr said my esophagus is damaged and stomach inflamed. Waiting on biopsy results. Taking protonic and flagyl and he said to go ahead and try cutting gluten out to see if that helps. Thanks for the feedback everyone! 
    • Welcome to the club you never wanted to join! The good thing about this club is that you don't have to take any pills, get radiation or chemo, or stick yourself with a needle every day. Things could be much worse than this. Does your brother live close? If so he could go to your same savvy doc. That would be great! Also what about your mom?
    • Hi There! I am Aly and I have suffered seriously for about 4 years with an huge increase in symptoms. I just recently started a gluten free diet a few months ago and I am sure I make mistakes because I feel it when I do. Your symptoms are a lot like mine and after many blood tests and visits to Neurologist still no answers. They diagnosed with relapse/remission MS for all these years and now say its not that. It's Auto-immune but no answers. They never tested me for Celiac's but A friend suggested I try going gluten free. Here are my symptoms below.  See if you relate or if anyone can relate. Heat Sensitivity, Nerves jumping in face and eyes, sometimes pain and redness around the skin of eyes, kinda pinkish.... occasional trimmers coupled with loss of coordination and balance along with in and out slurred speech, a other varying waves of relapse include Extreme fatigue and a huge fog comes over me. I can't sit up or stand without getting dizzy and feel like passing out. For a few days of the relapse It's just bed rest. The other parts are off and on having to use cane. Up and down, symptoms change but eventually the waves grow dim and I go back to being normal for a while. Things seem to get exacerbated when I do to much like go more than 4 -5 hours without taking a break and resting, lifting anything to heavy...so it seems to be straining things lead me to relapse. I used to be go go go...on the run but life has changed and I find that although I am eating gluten free and being careful not to relapse, I entered another a month ago and I am having to get IV steroid infusion tomorrow to break the cycle of this one. Just when I think I am beginning to feel better and go do something I go right back down. Its seems Gabapentin, Baclofen, and LOTS of rest only get me where I need to be again. It's frustrating. I wanted to share as well so that we can combine forces to get some answers! I have decided to go to a Allergy Clinic of sorts to try and get tested for environmental and food allergies. I am sorry you do not have funding for care. See if there is local clinic that can at least run some preliminary blood work on you. I am not sure if you can see one now in your state being 17 but there is usually a 211 or a 311 line in most cities that will give you the list of places you can go for free or on sliding scale. See if they will run any allergy panels as well. I have found that we have to be proactive in our own care because sometimes there is no simple answer and the more we talk one another with the research sometimes we do on own, we find out more than 4 years of going to a doctor could ever tell you. Thanks for all your input here. I look forward to being a member and helping where I can! I will send updates as I get them. Blessings to you all! Aly
