In Topic: Give Me Your Best Vegan gluten-free Chocolate Cake Recipe, Please?!

17 July 2009 - 08:23 AM

I am a bit confused about the cake pan, are you talking about the "Wilton Giant Cupcake Pan" that has 2 indentations, one for the bottom shaped like a cupcake and another half rounded one for the top ?



No, it's a flat one piece pan - NOT the one that actually makes a "stand up" cake that looks like a cupcake, rather... one that will lay flat on a 13x9 cakeboard.

Thanks for all the suggestions. I really appreciate it. I'll let ya know how it turns out!

I picked up a box of the cinnamon ones just the other day - both the Cinnamon AND Chocolate had barley malt in them. I put them right back on the shelf.

I feel for you. I'm in a somewhat similar situation. My three children and I are gluten free, but my husband isn't.

However, until the beginning of this year, my older son was still eating gluten. He has been tested every year since my daughter's diagnosis and last year his came back equivocal - this year they came back positive. He's 11, for what it's worth. He was tested the first time at 8, and every year after that.

I honestly have no idea how much gluten to have your kids eat, but I can understand how scary it would be after they've been gluten-free. I think I read (here) once that it has to be at least equivalent to a couple slices of bread, daily.

I wish you all the best!

In Topic: Would Someone Look At My Labs For Me Please

To me, it doesn't look like you are reacting to gluten. Your numbers are all in the negative category and you aren't IgA deficient. That doesn't mean you aren't intolerant, it just means you aren't producing antibodies to gliadin.

Yes, you can be intolerant without having Celiac.

I asked the same question about the antibodies a couple years ago. Someone explained it to me really well. But, the end result is that almost no one has "0" antibodies to gliadin. But, the only thing that really matters is whether or not your numbers are out of range. 3 is not out of range, so - it's a negative result.

Wow... I'm sure someone can and will explain that much better than me!

In Topic: Vegan Baking Help - Please! =)

By all means, let me know! I'm going to try baking them at a higher temperature to encourage quicker "setting up" - and I'll see how that works. If that helps, I'll let YOU know! =)
