    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.

    ½ teaspoon cocoa
    ½ cup rice flour
    ¼ cup chopped nuts
    3 tablespoons butter

    Version #2:
    In a classic mother-daughter moment, I wanted to make the coffee cake for my mom over thanksgiving. She had to help, and then tinkered with the recipe a bit, so this is what Ive now ended up with ... the blend of flours really makes a difference and I think the extra egg-and-a-half [?] has made it more moist.
    Traceys Variation on the Shipman Coffee Cake:
    5 egg whites -- whip silly
    5 egg yolks + 1 total egg -- beat till light and creamy
    1 cup sugar -- beat in to yolks
    Add to yolk mix:
    ½ cup Lentil bean flour [from Indian grocer]
    ½ cup rice flour
    1/8 teaspoons salt
    2 tablespoons lemon juice
    1-½ tablespoon vanilla
    splash of Baileys *
    Topping:
    3 tablespoons butter, melted impatiently in a skillet
    ½ cup sugar
    a whole bunch of cinnamon
    ½ cup rice flour
    1 cup chopped nuts
    Fold egg whites into the batter**. For topping, blend softened butter with sugar, nuts, cinnamon, flour cocoa. Bake in greased and floured 9-inch round pan. 325 for 20 minutes, then 350 for 15 minutes.
    *Yes, I did call Baileys and they assured me their Baileys + Cream is totally gluten-free
    ** mom would like it known that folding egg whites into batter is a lost art form. Impatience does not work here, or else youll poof all the air out the egg whites. Shes convinced that if you take the time and do it right, young lady that the coffee cake will poof to well over 4 inches. With the kitchen gods on her side, her patient folding resulted in a nearly 5 inch tall coffee cake that spilled over and trashed her brand new oven. [size does matter ]
    *** for leftovers -- if any -- wrap in wax paper, then a Ziploc baggie to keep in moistness. Enjoy!

    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.
    To make cupcake batter, whisk together the following:

    ¾ rounded cup sorghum ¾ rounded cup  tapioca starch  (you can also use potato or cornstarch) ½ cup unsweetened cocoa powder 1 teaspoon baking powder 1 cup organic cane sugar ¼ teaspoon sea salt 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon xanthan gum  Add in and beat the following until smooth:
    1 cup warm coffee (not too hot) 2 teaspoons  vanilla extract 1 tablespoon Egg Replacer, mix with ¼ cup warm water 3 tablespoons olive oil ½ teaspoon rice vinegar Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12-cup cupcake pan with parchment or paper liners. Beat the batter for a full two to three minutes until all the ingredients are incorporated and the batter is smooth. Using an ice cream scoop, drop the batter into the cups and smooth the tops. Bake in the center of a preheated oven till done-approximately 20 minutes. Cool the cupcakes on a wire rack.
    Frost when completely cooled. To Make Coffee Icing:
    1 ¾ cups confectioner's (powdered) sugar 3 tablespoons shortening 3 ounces cold coffee, as needed 1 teaspoon vanilla Starting with a small amount of liquid, beat the sugar to mix in the shortening, coffee and vanilla. Add liquid as needed.
    Beat  until smooth. For a thicker frosting add  more confectioner's sugar. Chill the frosting before using it, approximately 1 hour.
    Frost the cupcakes and enjoy!

    Celiac.com 08/14/2014 - I have missed ice cream cakes since I was diagnosed with celiac disease. Below is a make-ahead ice cream cake for a gluten-free birthday celebration, so that no one has to miss ice cream cake again!
    You will need:
    1 Gluten Free Betty Crocker Devil’s Food Cake Mix ½ - 1 gallon Gluten Free Vanilla Ice Cream, or Favorite gluten-free Ice Cream Flavor 1- 2 Containers Duncan Hines or other Gluten Free Fudge Frosting Cake Decorating Frosting, optional to write happy birthday message Candles, optional for birthday party. Directions:
    Bake the Gluten free Devil’s Food Cake as per box instructions, in two 8” cake pans. Remove from oven and cool. When the cake is completely cool, take the ice cream out of freezer to soften. Place one Gluten Free Cake Layer on a cake platter. Put an even layer of softened ice cream on top. Next, place the other Gluten Free Cake Layer on top of the softened ice cream. If the ice cream is getting to soft place the cake in the freezer for 10 minutes before frosting. After frosting the cake put it back into the freezer until about to serve. Take out 10 minutes before serving, add birthday candles to top if using and enjoy! “Eat well and live well!”-Melissa Bess Reed
