Spice Cake #2 (Gluten-Free)

This recipe comes to us from Joe Ellison.

Preheat oven to 325 F.
Grease a bundt or tube pan (7-inch tube pan, or a 10-inch bundt pan)

Boil together, covered, for 3 minutes:
1 cup water
2 cups raisins
1 cup brown sugar
½ cup dairy-free and gluten-free margarine or shortening
½ teaspoon each ground cinnamon and allspice
½ teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Let cool. This mixture can sit overnight with no harm to the finished product. Just dont refrigerate it, or youll have to reheat it.

Sift, then measure to equal 2 cups:
2 cups gluten-free flour mix (I used 1 2/3 cups of a one:one:one mix of Asian white rice flour, sweet rice flour, and tapioca starch, plus 1/3 cups sorghum, but any all-purpose mix will do)

Sift again with:
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon xanthan gum, if desired (I used it, but would actually leave it out next time)

Stir the flour into the liquid ingredients (or the other way round—it really doesnt matter). Stir until smooth.

If desired, add:
1 cup chopped almonds or other nuts
1 cup chopped dried fruit, such as dates, figs, and candied citron

Pour batter into prepared pan, and level with a spatula. Bake for one hour. It will test done at about 45 or 50 minutes, but needs the extra baking time to set properly. If it doesnt test done (toothpick comes out clean) at one hour, keep baking until it does, then give it another five or ten minutes.

Allow to cool in pan on a cooling rack, then turn out onto a serving platter.

You can add any icing you want, or no icing. You can also use a sugar/lemon juice glaze, or a white butter-cream style icing.

I'm sorry you're feeling poorly. As I read the good advice you already got and your message, I was wondering a couple of things. 1. You mention your very strict schedule that keeps you on track but it says eating decently well but it doesn't say cooking. If you are eating out a lot, that is ...

Thank you everyone for your replies. ravenwoodglass: Your advice was helpful I?ll try to avoid items like this which have so many unnecessary and artificial ingredients ? they make me feel out of control. A food and symptom diary is a great idea - especially when trying out new brands of fo...

Hi, I?m sorry you?re not feeling well and sympathize with the lack of answers. It?s not usually normal to have reduced WBC, no. If I had reduced WBC I would want to make sure it?s not a rheumatoid autoimmune condition, so I might get an ANA and a urinalysis. Are you taking any medicatio...

One of my daughters is milk intolerant. She had a history of mucus and phlegm and I didn't connect it right away. One day while drinking kefir she got a weird sensation in her throat and almost threw up. That happened twice. We cut milk and it has never happened again. The mucus is gone as well a...

Interesting- thank you for sharing. I saw my ND yesterday and she also suggested that after having been completely cleaned out for my procedures, my body could be trying to adjust. She is having me take a rest from the strong probiotics I was taking, and I'm focusing on eating foods that are more...
