It's My Birthday I Want Cake! Lol

Recommended Posts

I am going to try Pamela's (chocolate cake mix) and I was wondering if any of you lovely people have a recipe for some sort of gluten free dairy & soy free frosting or maybe a ganache recipe?

thanks so much

Happy Birthday! I love the Pamela's mix. It is so rich you don't need much for frosting. I've dusted the cake with powdered sugar and that's been enough! Is Cool Whip okay? That would be good. If that's not okay, I know I've seen soy based Cool Whip but I can't remember the name of it!

Huh. I never made a ganache before, but when I read your post I thought the filling to a cookie I made would probably be good. I looked up what a ganache is, and lo & behold, that's pretty much what my filling was. The site I checked for ganache said the basic recipe is 1 part cream to 2 parts chocolate, so you may have to tweak it a bit if no one else has a recipe.

Here's my recipe -

1 c. Enjoy Life chocolate chips

3/8 c. coconut milk

2 Tbsp powdered sugar

Cook & stir over medium heat until chocolate melts. (It will likely spread well while it's warm, but will firm up more as it cools.)

Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

That's the only mix I buy, I've made it a few different ways, but the best BY FAR is the mocha version on the package. I made it with very strong coffee. It didn't taste at all like coffee, just very dark and rich. My chocolate-hater husband LOVED it and fought my DD for the last piece!!! :D

Well I'm sorry I read this so late, however I hope you had a great B-day. I have several cake recipes without always having to buy special mixes or flours. Having been diagnosed in 1994 b4 all of the really easy good stuff came along and because I love to cook, I have acquired many fixes for things. Should you still want some of these let me know I'd be happy to share. Also if you know of a Wholefoods, check them out they have a new bakery and although sometimes pricey the baked goods are fabulous.

Good luck,

D

Hi guys!!! :) Thanks again for the birthday wishes!!

That mocha sounds YUM I love love coffee and espresso and I think I will try that!

I can't wait to do some experimenting with this and I can't wait to finally try the cake mix itself I have heard so many good things about it.

I will check out Wholefoods Dorie thanks!

I made the GFPantry chocolate chip cake once and it was really really good with strawberry compote on top. I'll be making a Bob's red Mill mix soon, and will keep you all updated.

I don't personally like the Bob's chocolate cake or chocolate chip cookies, they have that weird aftertaste. Maybe I need to experiment with different additives (like the coffee) because I bought a case of each and need to figure out a way to use them!! (I do LOVE their cornbread though!!)

Dorie-

hey, yesterday was my birthday too :)

but I wasn't ambitious enough to bake a cake - yet :unsure:

would LOVE your non-special mixes cake recipe(s) please post when you get a chance :D


gluten-free (except unintentionally) from 7 Dec 2007

3 gluten-free cousins and counting (1 gold standard, 1 pos blood/no endo, 1 self/dietary diagnosed)

suspect mother was celiac (also, cousin suspects my mother's twin is celiac)

Feb 08 testing 'normal range' for gluten antibodies, IBD and food allergies

Staying off gluten - dietary reaction is compelling for me!

Happy Belated Birthday :)

I always make Pamelas Chocolate Cake for birthdays, even for my gluten eating family members and they LOVE it.

I don't have a specific recipe on hand, but I know you can make a cf frosting with cocoa powder, oil (like canola or safflower), and powdered sugar. You can do a google search for vegan chocolate frosting.

I haven't tried any except "cause your special" brand cake mixes....

my MIL made a few for my anniversary party and everyone loved it, many were shocked to see me eating it and were scared I would get sick.... then when I told them it was gluten free the look on their face was classic!

and their brownie mix is to die for..... hubby never wants the other kind (with that nasty flour stuff) ever again, lol


Just my .00000002 cents worth

If I knew what I was doing years ago I would have half a clue today!

Hi,

My birthday was on the 13th but I was too exhausted to make anything. Yesterday I found a recipe I will be attached to for loooong time. The Company is called 123 Gluten Free because all the mixes have only three steps to them. I made a yellow cake that I finally had to tell my family to hide because it was so good. If you can get it I would try it.

Just looking for some recipes, I am turning 50 next Nov, do you have a good cake recipe. I would love to have it if you do.

Thanks.

I didn't like the chocolate chip cookies so much either. They have a wonderful texture but the flavor is wonky. I did make the choc cake finally, and I enjoyed the flavor of that much more. I still noticed a bitter aftertaste, my mother and boyfriend and uncle all said I was crazy. It may have helped that I made a cream cheese/marshmallow creme frosting to go on top. I think the cake would be even better with a coffee flavor, or orange flavor, or chocolate chips.

I've perfected my apple crisp/cobbler if anyone's interested......

my favorite chocolate icing recipe

1 stick butter or marjorine

1/2 cup Hershey's cocoa spooned into the cup

1 t vanilla

1 box of powdered sugar

cream the butter until really fluffy, beat in the cocoa and vanilla. Add part of the sugar (sift if it's old). As the icing gets thicker, add milk to keep it the right consistancy. Keep adding milk (maybe a T at a time) and the sugar until you have icing the consistancy you want. This will make enough to ice a 2 layer cake, or put a really thick layer on a sheet cake. REduce by about 1/3 if you want less icing on your sheet cake. (Like, who wants less icing?)

I don't think you can make dairy free ganache--you boil cream and chocolate together, so I can't imagine what you could substitute for the cream.
