Well I found the recipe for the red velvet cupcakes from the Premium Gold website. I just pulled the first batch out of the oven and they smell so freaking good! 

 

http://www.premiumgoldflax.com/recipe_glutenfreeredvelvetcupcake.php

 

I'm being super lazy and using the cream cheese betty crocker frosting. I typically make my own because I prefer mine to be less sweet but sometimes you gotta go for the shortcuts.

 

I find that I have to find specific recipes for the flour blends I buy because for whatever reason I am not good at adapting recipes, even ones that are already gluten free, to a different flour I have on hand. I understand the xantham gum principles but for whatever reason it never works out for me.

 

I'll be back to let you know how they taste!

YAY!!! That is soooooo comforting to hear!! I love red velvet cupcakes, too! If you like the flour and use it for baking then I know I'm in luck! I'm about to infiltrate your recipe stash for more cupcake recipes with this flour! I found it at Home Goods for 6.99 for a 2lb bag! I see it on Amazon so that is where I will get it if I can't find it again locally.

I'll eat one in your honor. I'm sorry if you haven't been able to eat one since gluten free, right? This is my first red velvet since being gluten free!

Nope, none for months! My supermarket stacks them next to the gluten-free section for some reason... evil! Recently I've been telling myself that there's nothing I *can't* eat because if I wanted it badly enough I'd learn to make it myself. So far this has extended to proper chips, cake type things and extremely rich coconut and mango curries. Healthy gluten free eating phase officially over.

Make cupcakes? I'm a spoiled brat. I buy cupcakes from gluten free bakeries. For me cupcakes are usually a special treat and when I feel entitled to a special treat I don't feel like I should have to make it myself.  B) I usually make other things, mostly bread these days to be perfectly honest. Bread of all sorts, but not sandwich bread. I buy that crap. I've just been having a crappy week and I don't have money to blow on the number of cupcakes I feel like stuffing in my face right now, so making them seems far more sensible. (unless you ask my hips, and no one is asking those fatties)

What?! My nearest bakery is about 40 miles/minutes away. I wish I had the luxury... because the place I go to, Pushkin's in Sacramento, are really really good!

 

I have never tried to make bread... I'm not  a huge bread eater, never have been. 

 

And you should never ask your hips for advice, they never lie. :P

The cupcakes were a complete success! They were moist, not crumbly and had the same mouth feel as a glutiny cupcake. I will definitely keep the recipe and use it again! I took it to a chocolate party at my sisters house and everyone there loved them! And the recipe makes 30.... just sayin!

Thank you! I put the leftovers in the freezer just now. That will also prevent me from eating them all at once! lol

No, it's the mysteries of predictive text.... Also if you type in different languages and forget to change the keyboard... Absolute chaos ensues.... But it's quite funny! We should never lose our sense of humor!

Thought you'd just given moose a new nickname. My predictive text once changed 'I see you... Muhaha' to 'I see you... Mugabe' :|

It is so worth the effort. Also instead of the sour cream I used greek yogurt because that is what I had on hand - totally worked. :)

I agree!  It's so much easier typing on my laptop (like I'm doing now)!  I confess the convenience of the ipad is really nice!  Maybe I should spring for a wireless keyboard for my ipad -- but it's got to be laptop-sized and not one of those tiny keyboards.

 

Sorry, the for confusion!

I like the idea of the wireless laptop pads. They are really neat. 

 

Is it sad that I know it takes a cycle of 7 secs, 5 seconds, and another 5 seconds to thaw out my frozen cupcakes? LOL I may have eaten 2 when I got home from work today. I spent all day in the OR. I earned them. Haha!

So I finally made my cupcakes today. I meant to earlier in the week and it just didn't get done. They are so good. Even more awesome though tbh is the frosting that is listed on the recipe. I could just make that frosting and eat it forever. It is really bakery quality frosting.

Now I have to make it again for the frosting. I ran out of time last weekend. Like I need an excuse? I'm so glad they worked out for you, too! :) :)

    • It sounds like your hives resolved.  I had a six month bout with them.  Antihistamines really helped.  My doctors are not sure if Mast Cell or autoimmune is the root cause.  
    • My kid has Raynauds.  It freaks her classmates out.  She wears shoes and wool socks all year round and we live in a warm state.  It is autoimmune.  She manages it by layering, turning up the heat, use lots of blanket throws.   I have Hashimoto’s and celiac disease.  So, having multiple autoimmune issues is common.  
    • Well, you do need to replace some things because they are too porous or damaged to remove gluten.  Things like old wooden spoons, scratched non-stick pans, toaster, colander, sponges, etc.  Honestly, the list is long, so try getting a few celiac books at the library or Amazon.  Consider reading through the Newbie 101 thread under the “Coping section”.    You should see some minor improvement soon.  It does take time to heal.  Most  around here will say it takes a year!  
    •   When I woke up from my Endoscopy and was told I definitely had celiac disease the first thing I asked my doctor was do I need to get all new kitchen stuff? He assured me that I did not, and as long as my pots and pans and everything else was washed after being used to cook gluten I would have no problems. Well, I'm 10 weeks into my gluten-free diet and still feeling crappy as ever.  I have not been eating out unless the restaurant is 100% gluten-free (I'm lucky there are several near me).  I am very careful that everything I use to cook my food is thoroughly cleaned at home, but is this really enough?  Did you guys need to replace most kitchenware in order really avoid being cross contaminated?   I'm curious to get some opinions before I spend a bunch of money on new/separate stuff.  Thanks!  
    • They have all given you good advice. Like Ennis_Tx said this is not medical advice. Just some observations. Ennis_Tx mentioned already a good B-complex. But people who have Perncious Anemia low B-12 have "Pens and Needles' feeling in their extremities. Mine was much more pronounced when sleeping. . . while sleeping my nerve ending would go to sleep. This would wake me from my sleep.  I would shake them awake/loose much like a leg that had fallen asleep while awake.  We have all felt that feeling before except the whole side of body's nerve ending would tingle/fall asleep enough to wake me from my sleep. Once taking a homocysteine tablet (B6,b12 and folic acid) tablet call FABB for the abbreviated ingredients under doctor's supervision this "pens and needles' went away. This also happened in my finger and toe tips while awake as if I had pinched a nerve in my back. These sensations are now in remission. Also if you think it is Rynaud's then try Niacin or Niacinamide.  It is a natural vasodialotor and the 'warm sensation" people take when using Niacin especially in a work out supplement is Niacin they add to enhance athletic performance for body builders.. . . because this opens capillaries approx. 10 % more allowing more air into the muscles thus improving their work out. This flushing goes away after a couple days of using Niacin.  The Niacinamide form does not flush the way the Niacin form does but provides the same benefit. Both Niacinamide and Magnesium each lower blood pressure approx. 10% each this way.  But if BP is a real problem for you  take the Homocysteine tablet mentioned above or just Folic Acid by itself. My BP is now normal after taking Folic Acid because it controls' how/what triggers constriction in our blood vessels thus effectively controlling BP. These are some times that I have used to improve my circulation. *** again this is not medical advice just things that have helped me with similar issues.  I hope this is helpful. 2 Tim 2:7 “Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things” this included. posterboy by the grace of God,
