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


Good Carrot Cake Or Cheesecake Recipe?

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

My brothers birthday is Saturday and I've been put in charge of the cake. He also has celiac so ofcourse I will be making a gluten-free cake. He doesn't really like chocolate so the fabulous Namaste cake is out, but he does like Cheesecake and Carrot Cake. Anyone have a good recipe? There are no other intolerances and I'm not concerned about making it low fat.

No-bake Cheesecake


1/3 cup butter

1/4 cup sugar

1 1/3 cups graham cracker crumbs (I've never found these in the store. I use the Bette Hagman recipe but with less cinnamon than she calls for)


250g (8oz) cream cheese

1 cup icing sugar

1 tsp vanilla

1 pkg dream whip, prepared


1 can cherry pie filling

Mix together melted butter, graham crackers and sugar. Press into the bottom of a 9x13 pan. Beat together cream cheese, icing sugar and vanilla. Add the prepared Dream Whip and beat until well mixed and smooth. Spread on top the graham cracker mixture. Spread a can of cherry pie filling on top of that. Chill and serve.

My friends refer to this as the crack cocaine of cheesecake. One of my friends ate leftovers for breakfast because it has fruit and dairy...what's healthier than that?

I've made the carrot cake on Pamela's website (pamelasproducts.com) a few times and really like it. I use two to three jars of baby food jarred carrots in place of shredded carrots. I find this makes the cake more moist. I then make cream cheese frosting for it. I don't have a "real" recipe for the frosting; I tend to be a "little of this and a little of that" kind of baker. However, if you want to make this cake, Allrecipes.com has several cream cheese frosting recipes (I love that site!). I also add a bit of cinnamon to my frosting for this cake to go along with the carrot cake flavor.

The cake isn't exceptionally large, so if you have a small gathering, it would work perfectly.

I have used Namaste's Spice Cake mix and added some carrots and nuts to make it a Carrot Cake and it was pretty good. My fiance loves Carrot Cake and he ate most of it so that says something. Good luck. :rolleyes:

The orig recipe came from the back of a ener-g potato starch flour box. I added the pineapple and coconut and raisins because I like those things....and think it makes it even more yummy!! My family thinks this cake is great.....they love it.
