    Glaze:

    ¼ cup sifted powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon low-fat buttermilk
    ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees

    2. To prepare the cake, combine the first 4 ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Cook 5 minutes or until syrupy, stirring frequently; cool.

    3. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, xanthan gum in a small bowl, stirring well with a whisk. Combine granulated sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium speed until well-blended; add egg and extracts, beating well. Add flour mixture to sugar mixture alternately with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture; beat well after each addition.

    4. Spoon the batter into an 8-inch round cake pan coated with cooking spray. Arrange apple mixture over cake. Sprinkle with almonds. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until cake begins to pull away from sides of pan. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes.

    5. To prepare glaze, combine powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon buttermilk, and ¼ teaspoon vanilla in a small bowl; stir with a whisk. Drizzle glaze over cake.
    Serve warm or at room temperature. Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 1 wedge).

  • About Me

    Scott Adams was diagnosed with celiac disease in 1994, and, due to the nearly total lack of information available at that time, was forced to become an expert on the disease in order to recover. In 1995 he launched the site that later became Celiac.com to help as many people as possible with celiac disease get diagnosed so they can begin to live happy, healthy gluten-free lives.  He is co-author of the book Cereal Killers, and founder and publisher of the (formerly paper) newsletter Journal of Gluten Sensitivity. In 1998 he founded The Gluten-Free Mall which he sold in 2014. Celiac.com does not sell any products, and is 100% advertiser supported.

    1 can coconut milk or 1 cup heavy cream
    6 egg yolks
    1 cup brown sugar or Rapadura
    ½ stick gluten-free butter (or ¼ cup coconut oil)
    A bit of vanilla
    Mix it all together and cook in pot on medium heat on stove until thick--stir constantly.
    Variation: Add nuts (roasted chopped nuts are the best) and coconut. Excellent on tarts, cakes, or brownies.

    I never had a desire to eat cupcakes, until I went gluten-free. And now that I can't eat them, I crave them like crazy. Of course, it doesn't help that cupcakery's are popping up everywhere as the new food craze. This is a cupcake recipe that is free of most common allergens. It is gluten-free, nut-free, corn-free and vegan. To also make this  beet/cane sugar-free I will be experimenting with this recipe using agave syrup in place of sugar. While I don't drink coffee, I am a sucker for coffee flavored sweets. However, if you are not a coffee fan, you can replace the coffee with chocolate, vanilla, or some other flavor that you prefer.
