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.

    • Hi, No, I do not have celiac  disease. I have an ankylosing spondylitis which is an auto-immune disease provoking an inflammation of the joints. Under the advice and supervision of my doctor and the professor at the hospital I follow a gluten free & casein free diet, which is extremely successful in preventing inflammatory events. And I've been doing so, strictly, for more than 6 years. So I'm not Celiac, but I can tell you that I react strongly every time I take gluten even in small amounts. Even soya sauce, which according to this website has an almost zero dose of gluten, is a lot too much for me. Nevertheless I allow myself to eat food which has been processed in a factory which processes gluten. To conclude, I would say that when you are travelling, especially in a country where celiac disease is scarcely known, you should be twice as careful as when you're going out at home. In the end you can never guarantee that the cook has cleaned his pan after using soya sauce and so on... You can only bet

    • No!  Once you fill the tub, if you sit in it for 3 minutes or you stay for 10... It doesn't change the amount or cost of the water.  That's only relevant if you have 3 kids to cycle thru that same water.  Is your hub bathing in the same water after you? Lol  And even if you add some more hot and stay longer....well...it's much cheaper than perscription meds, vodka or a substance that is legal in a few states.     Of course this only pertains to those of use with running water.... If you make your hub haul water from the creek or well and heat it over a fire....
    • Whether it is bona fide dermatitis herpetiformis, or severe eczema or hives or what have you, we all want to know how to stop the incessant itching.  Through all my research, the solution comes down to one thing: a good long soak in the tub-- with baking soda or Epsom salts or some kind of herbal tea, followed by a rub down in thick expensive lotion.  I don't know about you, but I was brought up to "get in, get done get out."  A long soak in the bath was a frivolous luxury, and a waste of time and hot water.  So now I'm having this awful breakout from forgetting to read a label and got wheated.  And every night I've been soaking in a baking soda bath to relieve the itching and aid my recovery.  And it's been hard! (But it's been very helpful too)  It has been hard to reconcile this "frivolous luxury and waste of time" as medically necessary!  Fortunately I've had no judging, and only support from my husband, who has had a similar upbringing.  Does anyone else struggle with this?

      I have celiac disease and have been gluten-free for almost 10 years.  I am extremely sensitive to gluten, noting that I react within 15 minutes of contact and in fact the doctor suspects that there may also be an actual wheat allergy at play but have never bothered to be tested since I avoid it like the plague!  I am curious to know if anyone else reacts to flax or inulin?  My symptoms with those two are almost identical to gluten so I have to really watch for that in gluten-free breads and baking and recently discovered after the fact that flax was in the juice I was drinking. I know that people with gluten issues can have other problems as well and in fact I also avoid milk products.  Even after 10 years, and although it has become a way of life, it's still frustrating to have to read every ingredient on every label.😞
