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 have read the newbie 101 and have been careful about reading labels. I'm the only one that's gluten free in my household, so they could be contaminating me. I was eating gluten for 6 weeks after my blood test because it took that long to get an official diagnosis and my GP told me to still be e...

Hi and Welcome to the Forum. I am glad that you are here! As with a lot of things in life, try not to compare yourself to other people. You are trying to be the best version of yourself - not Jill, Annie, or Maya. People make a lot of foolish decisions in the world and it does not mean tha...

If Small was going to get rid of anything in a takeaway meal, it would be the bread with all its dreaded gluten. However, many scientists and nutritionists argue gluten is not a problem for people who do not have celiac disease or who are not "gluten-sensitive". Massey University senior lecturer ...

Holy cow! You people are all angels! I have been suffering unbearably with these hot, itchy, and painful bumps on my scalp for a year now. Two doctors had no idea what it was, so I was sent to see a "dermatologist." To my utter shock, he told me I WAS DIRTY! HE TOLD ME TO WASH MY HAIR EVERY DAY w...
