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

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

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!!)

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

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.

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.

@Alaskaguy With regard to the timing, I think that everyone is a bit different! I used to have a shorter time to onset when I was first diagnosed (within 24h). As time has gone on, and I've glutened myself less and less, I have noticed that the time gets a bit longer.  Recent history seems to matter a bit too - if I've been glutened recently and then get glutened again, the rash will show up faster on the second round. For example, in the last 3 weeks I got slightly glutened by inadvertent
