In Topic: How Do You Make Normal Sized Cakes?

24 July 2008 - 07:55 PM

OK, I've watched this thread for a while and just *have* to say that I've never had a cake fall (depression in the centre) nor be flat on me....

I counsel all the flat/depressed cake makers to try Glutino chocolate cake mix. If anything, I'd complain that it was TOOO high in the middle (I end up cutting off the top so that the iciing will sit normallly!

I'd be very interested to hear how you make out (following the directions on the box as I did, no substitutions) compared to me!


In Topic: Chewy Granola Bar...a New Staple At Our House!

Wow! I made these yesterday and they are fabulous!!! Really really good! I chose to make the recipe as listed with the following change 2/3 cup chopped almonds (instead of 1/3) and 2/3 cup chopped Kraft caramels (instead of 1 cup of fruit).

These are wayyy addictive.

I too had the problem of the middle ones falling apart (the outside ones were great, but the middle ones were turning to granola - an excellent use for the crumbs) so I put them back in the oven for a while. I think next time I'll make them thinner and in a wider pan for more even cooking.

I highly recommend these. They are so good.

Thanks for posting the recipe!!!

You can even fry them and make them crispy after wrapped.

REALLY??? How do you make them crispy??? Like, exactly how?


In Topic: I Know It's Here, But I Can't Find Easy Flatbread Recipe

I remember it well. It's on page 6 right now under "Very good bread recipe". Then scroll to the middle under FiddleFaddle where it says ready in one hour. Another comment says where they put it in bags, just read all of FiddleFaddle's comments

Well, I just HAD to try this recipe and it's fabulous! So fast and easy! Thanks for the recipe!!!


(I'm adding it below for anyone who wants to give it a go!)

This is a very easy, quick (READY IN LESS THAN 1 HOUR), delicious bread--my kids scarf it down, gluten-free or not. I bake it in an 8" x 8" square pan, and then cut it into 6 small rectangles, which I then split to make kid-size sandwiches. It's kind of like a focaccia, and you could easily turn it into focaccia by adding basil, garlic, cheese, etc.

I think it's nearly as good as Lorka's flax bread, mentioned above, but much, much faster and easier. Hers is the best, though!

If you are dairy free, you can use soy or rice milk with a tablespoon of vinegar instead of buttermilk.

If you don't have a gluten-free flour replacer, use 1/2 cup brown rice flour (Bob's Red Mill is fine). 1/2 cup potato starch (or corn starch or tapioca starch or any combination of the 3) and 1/2 tsp xanthan gum.



Servings: 8
Active Prep Time: 5 - 10 minutes (depending on how organized you are in your kitchen )
Cooking Time: 16-20 minutes, 10 minutes cooling time

1/4 cup flaxmeal
3/4 cup gluten-free flour replacement (I use Betterbatter)
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 heaping tsp yeast (for flavor, not for rising)
1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk (or 1/2 cup plain whole milk yogurt plus 1/4 cup milk)
1 large egg
1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil (canola works, too)
PAM, or similar cooking spray (make sure it's gluten-free)
Cornmeal for dusting pan (optional)

Preheat the oven to 450, and heat an 8" cake pan (glass or metal). Combine all the dry ingredients (minus the cornmeal) and mix well (I use a whisk). In a separate bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, egg, and 1 tablespoon of oil. Combine with dry ingredients and mix on high for 1 minute.Using an oven mitt, remove the hot pan from the oven. Spray with PAM and dust the pan with the cornmeal, if using. Dump the batter into the hot, prepared pan. Spread the dough out as evenly as possible inside the pan. Transfer to the oven and bake until brown and crusty, 16-20 minutes. Flip the bread out onto a wire rack, and let cool for 10 minutes before cutting into rectangles

(I cut into triangles)!

In Topic: Your Favorite Cake Recipe

17 June 2008 - 06:45 AM

As a mom to two little girls who attend a LOT of birthday parties, I can attest that the Glutino Chocolate Cake Mix is the very best one I've ever eaten. Even my gluten-eating husband (who is very very picky) loves it.

I've seen two different packags of Glutino chocolate cake mix. The GOOD ONE is the one that has a picture of a chocolate cake on the front (as opposed to the plain white box version). Beware, the box only makes one 9" layer so you'll need two boxes to make a two-layer cake.

Trust me, this cake mix is worth the money and even at $5/box it's still cheaper than a grocery store cake.
