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.

Hi Nikkster, They often call the celiac testing a celiac panel. There is also a celiac screening test they sometimes do first, the ttg. You want to get the full celiac panel if possible. Not everyone shows up on just the screening test.

I'm from the UK so I can't help you on the recommendation, but instead of canned chili have you tried making your own? It's super easy to do, far nicer and cheaper than any pre-made variety and you can make a big batch and freeze small portions so its always available if you need a quick filli...
