Annalise Roberts' Coconut Cake

Recommended Posts

Thanks Julie.

I actually went to Target 1 week or so ago. I bought a whole bunch of stuff but didn't see the pans. I'll check them out online.

Enterolab positive results only June 06:
Me HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0301; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2, 7)
Husband HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 1 0201; HLA-DQB1 Molecular analysis, Allele 2 0302; Serologic equivalent: HLA-DQ 2,3 (subtype 2,8)



The whole family has been soy free since February, gluten free since June 2006.

The whole family went back to a gluten diet October 2011.  We never had official testing done and I decided to give gluten a go again.  At this point I've decided to work on making some gluten free things again, though healthwise everyone seems to be fine.  The decision to add gluten back in was also made based on other things I'd read about the 2nd sequence of genes.  It is my belief that we had a gluten intolerance, but thanks to things I've learned here, I know more what to keep an eye on.  If you have a confirmed case of celiac, please don't go back to gluten, it's a lifelong lifestyle change.

I actually found a set of loaf pans in between the regular size and the minis at my grocery store. It was the good chef brand.

For the Analise Roberts fans out there, what brands of brown rice flour do you get? Where do you get it?

All I have seen around here is BRM.

Authentic Foods has the only brown rice flour I've tried & liked, but it costs a fortune. I ordered from their website; might be cheaper on Amazon. I have subbed white rice flour from the Asian market for brown though & it works but is not quite as flavorful. (Nor as healthy of course.) The brown rice flour at my local store is distinctly grainy & makes a much less palatable product if the recipe is simple. If there are lots of texture-ful things in there, it's not so noticeable.

I also sub in bob's red mill white rice flour. I don't have the $ to spend to special order flours like that. I love how things turn out with the white rice.

I use the Authentic Foods superfine brown rice flour that she reccommends, but I'm lucky enough to have a local mainstream store carry it. Sure, it's like $9 for a 3lb bag, but it's so worth it, and I'm cheap :rolleyes:

That's incredible that a mainstream store stocks it! Which one?

It's called HEB (A central Texas thing) and this particular location carries a lot of gluten-free stuff, and I think most of Authentic Foods' product line. I can think of two reasons 1: a proactive celiac or two, but I don't know which ones live up here 2: It's the closest grocery store to the culinary academy and so they carry more gourmet type stuff (though honestly, I see more of the students in Wal Mart :lol: )

I remember HEB from back in the day (used to live in Austin)... actually I remember that the owner was named Harry Butt & my brother & I found that endlessly amusing... unless that was just an elementary school myth?

I just made her lemon coconut muffins. I subbed orange peel for the lemon peel and they still turned out great! This cookbook has lots of great looking recipes and I can't wait to try them.

Buy the cookbook. It's well worth the price. Annalise Roberts answered my questions promptly also. To me, someone who takes the time to communicate with those who have bought the book or are contemplating it, is much to be appreciated.....ssssoooo buy the cookbook. ;) She does use butter in a lot of recipes so if you are soy and dairy allergic/intolerant and don't have a suitable substitute than that would be the only reason I would question getting it. Shortening could probably be subbed for butter though.

I just wanted to chime in about this cookbook. I just joined the board yesterday, but I've had this cookbook about 6 months, and it's the best one I have. I have taken the coconut cake as cupcakes to several gatherings, and they've been devoured!! Everyone raves about them, and people have no idea there's anything different about them. The brownies are great too. I would encourage everyone to buy the book, both because the recipes are so good, and because the author has been so gracious!
