Carrot Cake (Gluten-Free)


Photo: CC/thebittenword

This is one recipe to keep in your recipe collection; especially if you love carrot cake as much as I do. The best thing about this recipe is that it is of course gluten-free, but also dairy-free. There is also an option for nut-free if you leave out the walnuts (adapted from Elana’s Pantry recipe).

I can not help you with a cheaper price (google it), but if you have celiac disease, I would make sure the alternative gluten free flours are not milled with gluten flours by calling the manufacturer. I personally make sure that my gluten-free flours are certified gluten free. I do not worry ...

I think that your villi are intact. So, normally that would mean no evidence of celiac disease. But Victoria is right, that they should have run a celiac blood panel to help rule out celiac disease. Why? The small intestine is vast. If spread out, it is larger than a tennis court! The biops...
