    Whisk together the flour, baking powder, powdered milk and salt and set aside.

    In a large mixing bowl, combine the butter and sugar and beat well with your mixer's paddle attachment, until the mixture is very light and fluffy (approximately 3-4 minutes). Add the eggs next, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Mix in the vanilla with the last egg addition. Slowly add the milk, alternating with the flour mixture and beating in between the additions. Beat until smooth and pour into the prepared pans.

    Bake for 20 minutes, turning the pans half-way through if using convection setting. Test the cupcakes for doneness by inserting a cake tester or toothpick in the middle of a cupcake and be sure it comes out clean. The cupcakes will also begin to pull away slightly from the sides of the pans. If necessary, add bake time in 5 minute increments until fully baked.

    When done, turn off the oven and leave the oven door open to let the cupcakes cool slowly there for 10 minutes or so, then remove to a cooling rack. After 15-20 minutes of total cooling time, remove from cupcake pans to finish cooling.

    Frost only when fully cooled, or wrap the cooled cupcakes with wax paper or plastic wrap and seal inside freezer bags to freeze until ready to use.

    Gluten-Free White Frosting

    Ingredients:
    • ½ cup butter or non-dairy alternative, softened (I like Earth Balance® Buttery Sticks)
    • 2 ½ cups confectioner's sugar
    • 1 ½ teaspoon gluten-free vanilla extract
    • ¼ cup dairy or non-dairy milk of choice (up to ¼ cup)
    • Food coloring, optional
    Directions:
    Cream the sugar and butter together with an electric mixer. Add the vanilla and 2 tablespoons of milk, beating well to combine, then add the food coloring if using, and milk (if and as necessary) to achieve a spreadable consistency, beating for several minutes at the end until light and fluffy.

    Gluten-Free Chocolate Frosting

    Use white frosting base and add ½ cup cocoa powder. Use additional milk until proper consistency is achieved.

    2 cups sugar
    2 teaspoon Baking soda

    Add liquid ingredients to dry and beat at medium speed for 3 minutes. Bake in 9 x 13 pan for 45 to 50 minutes, or in 2 layer pans for 25 to 30 minutes. Notes: sour milk can be made by adding 1 teaspoon vinegar to 1 cup milk and letting it set for 5 minutes. Sift the dry ingredients, black coffee can be replaced with water if desired.

    Celiac.com 02/23/2008 - Before we get to the details of how to make this amazing gluten-free chocolate cake, I think a few words on the latest gluten-free beers are in order.
    You probably already know that Anheuser-Busch has made their very own sorghum beer - Redbridge - which is widely available (if your favorite establishments do not carry it yet, tell them to order it from their distributor!).  This beer truly tastes like it comes from the Budweiser family; during the Superbowl, for example, I was grateful to have the perfect football-watching beer at my fingertips again!
    For this cake recipe though, I needed something with more body and a richer taste.  I explored the options at my favorite little specialty shop in historic Ellicott City, Maryland - Carpe Vinum.  If you are ever in the neighborhood, stop by and have a chat with the proprietor, John.  He is a most fascinating man and will order with a smile whatever you desire in the realm of wines and beers.
    Ok, back to the beer.  So, John and I chatted and I decided to try two different beers for my cake experiments: Hambleton Ales' "Toleration Ale" (http://www.hambletonales.co.uk/gfa.htm) out of the UK, and Green's Endeavour Dubbel Dark (http://www.glutenfreebeers.co.uk/) from Belgium.  The website of Green's US distributor (http://www.merchantduvin.com/pages/5_breweries/greens.html) has some useful trivia on the grains Green's uses in its vegan beer -- a drink which boasts no wheat, barley, crustaceans, eggs, fish, peanuts, soya beans, milk, lactose, nuts, celery, mustard, sesame seeds, sulphur dioxide or sulfites (please stop me if I ever do drink a beverage containing crustaceans - yuck!).  I'll admit that I was so grateful to have gluten-free beer options that I bought one of all he had in the store, but I settled on these two for making my cakes (I did my own beer taste test later...).
    The Toleration Ale cake was somewhat lighter, but no less delicious in its own way.  The Dubbel Dark was indeed that, and probably most mimicked a true Guinness cake.  I used two different frostings for my two cakes: one a canned ready-made white gluten-free frosting (I used Pillsbury) and the other a homemade cream cheese frosting.  They were both tasty with this cake, so feel free to use what you have available as time and ingredients will allow.  Aside from the frosting, I give you substitutions in the recipe to make it milk free and just as yummy - yay!
    So go ahead and treat yourself to this wonderfully light, yet sinfully rich gluten-free Chocolate Beer Cake!  It will make those 6 more weeks of winter go by much more smoothly...

    Gluten-Free Chocolate Beer Cake
    Ingredients:
    1 cup gluten-free ale
    8 Tbs. unsalted butter or Earth Balance Shortening
    ¾ cup unsweetened cocoa powder
    2 cups granulated cane sugar
    ¾ cup sour cream or Tofutti Sour Supreme
    2 eggs
    1 Tablespoon gluten-free vanilla extract
    2 cups All Purpose Nearly Normal Gluten-Free Flour Mix
    1 Tablespoon baking soda
    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 350F.
    (Note- you will need a large saucepan for this recipe, not a mixer and mixing bowl!)
    Butter a 9-inch springform tube or springform pan (if using plain springform pan, line the bottom with parchment paper).
    In a small bowl, whisk the sour cream with the eggs and vanilla.
    Pour the 1-cup beer into a large saucepan (drink the rest!).  Add the butter and heat just until melted over medium heat.  Whisk in the cocoa powder and the sugar until smooth.
    Add the egg mixture into saucepan mixture and whisk.  Add the flour and baking soda until mixed.  Pour into the greased pan and bake for 35-40 minutes, or until a cake tester inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.  Let the cake cool completely in the pan on a cooling rack and remove from the pan when fully cooled.
    Frost the top of the cake with a gluten-free cream cheese or white frosting of choice.
    Easy Cream Cheese Frosting:
    8 oz. cream cheese (can use fat free!)
    1 cup confectioners' sugar
    ½ cup heavy cream (can use half & half, but use less than ½ cup)
    Whip the cream cheese and sugar until smooth, then slowly stir in the cream to make spread-able consistency.

    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
