    Do you have questions about celiac disease or the gluten-free diet?


Baking With Restrictions

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I've never baked in my life until last week and now I'm loving all my little "creations". Surprisingly, everything's turning out really good. I'm not picky at all so I'm not the best critic but everyone else seems to like my baking too. I think they seriously like the stuff...it actually gets gobbled up. :blink:

Today I'm starting my elimination diet and I'm basically eliminating everything cuz I'm tired of trying to figure out whats causing reactions. I'm eliminating dairy, eggs, soy, nuts, yeast and all salicylates (which is really hard) on top of being gluten-free. I didn't think it would be possible to actually bake without any of the "main" ingredients. I was making some super yummy buttermilk pancakes but I figured they definately wouldnt be half as good w/out the buttermilk. I tried it out today...they are now "rice milk pancakes" from home-made rice-milk (no salicylates). I also substituted the egg and the butter with whatever I could think of.

I thought it was pretty funny that here I am baking with ALL these restrictions after never having baked anything previously and believe it or not the pancakes were GOOD! They didnt even taste different to me. This baking stuff is really pretty easy and I'm excited that I can still pack on the pounds with all the baked goodies while I'm on the elimination diet.

Just hope I don't get intolerant to rice. That would suck!!! :o

I'm so glad your having sucess with your baking!! After my dd was gluten-free for a few months we discovered she had several food allergies. I never thought I could cook without dairy, soy, eggs, etc. but now it's no big deal. :lol:

You mentioned that you're going yeast free. My dd and I did the candida diet for many months before going gluten-free. Now I've found that I can tolerate small amounts of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar. I add a teaspoon of the vinegar to my rice milk to make fake buttermilk. I love using rice milk in place of cows milk.

I've wondered what we would do if we started reacting to rice....I guess we would have to master baking with sorgum or some other fun flour!! :lol:

btw...I made mini pizzas this weekend and they're dairy and egg free. I found that a small pizza was just enough to satisfy my carb craving. I plan on freezing some this week!

Rachel--It sounds like you really have a knack for baking! Funny it took this to get you to start :P . Anyway, good luck with the new diet--I hope you figure it all out and get to feeling better. From everything you've said, it sounds like you're on the right track!
