Fruitcake (Gluten-Free)

Gluten, dairy and soy free, this delicious fruitcake is even quick (as fruitcakes go!) to make. This fruit-filled, delicious cake doesn't need to be "cured" for days or even weeks, so don't be scared away from trying fruitcake this holiday!  My recipe doesn't produce the brick-like product we've all made fun of, but it does make enough for more than one cake, so you'll have enough left over to give away some cakes to friends and neighbors (if you're willing to share!).

Fruitcake (Gluten-Free)Ingredients:
1 cup butter or non-dairy alternative (e.g. Earth Balance Buttery Sticks)
2 cups granulated cane sugar
6 eggs
¼ cup light rum
1 Tbs. lime juice
1 tsp. gluten-free vanilla extract
1 Tbs. almond extract (optional)
1 tsp. grated lime zest (approximately 1 lime)
2 ¾ cup mixed dried/candied fruit*
½ cup chopped walnuts (optional)
2 cups dry red wine
1 cup molasses or dark agave nectar
3 cups Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour
1 ½ Tbs. gluten-free baking powder
½ tsp. ground nutmeg
½ tsp. ground allspice
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 pinch salt

Cointreau, Grand Marnier or other citrus flavored distilled liqueur for brushing on finished cakes

*Dried/Candied fruit should contain a mixture of several fruits such as cherries, cranberries, raisins, sultanas, dates, figs, pineapple, candied citrus peel ....

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350F. Oil and dust two 9-inch round cake pans or 1 large bundt pan plus 4-6 small loaf pans with Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs and beat until well mixed. Add in the rum, lime juice, extracts, zest and molasses. Stir in the dried/candied fruits.

In another bowl, whisk together the dried ingredients: Jules Gluten Free All Purpose Flour, baking powder, spices and salt. Fold into the wet batter just until integrated. Pour into prepared pans.

Bake for 50 minutes in the small loaf pans or 60 minutes in larger pans, checking to be sure the cakes are not burning at the edges though. A knife inserted into the centers should come out clean. Brush the tops of each cake with citrus flavored liqueur. Cool in the pans for 15 minutes, then turn out onto a wire rack to finish cooling. Wrap cooled cakes in plastic wrap and then foil, if freezing.

This sounds like the recipe my mother used to make. I think I will try this one.

Most (90%-95%) patients with celiac disease have 1 or 2 copies of HLA-DQ2 haplotype (see below), while the remainder have HLA-DQ8 haplotype. Rare exceptions to these associations have been occasionally seen. In 1 study of celiac disease, only 0.7% of patients with celiac disease lacked the HLA al...

This is not quite as cut & dried as it sounds. Although rare, there are diagnosed celiacs who do not have either of those genes. Ravenwoodglass, who posted above, is one of those people. I think she has double DQ9 genes? Am I right Raven? My point is, that getting the gene testing is not an...

Why yes it is! jmg and myself are NCIS, I mean NCGS specialist/experts or is it NCGI people ourselves. posterboy,

LilyR, jmg has given you good resources/links. I used to have constant issues with ear infections that went away when I went gluten free. And recurrent bronchitis they I never have now. NCGS can cause low grade inflammation that you don't realize at the time . .. till you stop...

"If the biopsy is negative, then is there another test that can be done to make sure I really don't have celiac? " Yes, we can do a genetic testing for the celiac gene, I think it is the DQ2 and DQ8 gene, and maybe one other. If you don't have one of these genes, I was told that you can no...
