I made this recipe for my son's 6th birthday! It turned out GREAT! (40 thumbs-up!)

I did bake it at 275-300F for 40-45 min.... I just think rice cooks better at a lower temperatures.

Definately give it a try! (It makes great cupcakes, too :P )

Oh, yeah... And, you can sub some of the flour for cocoa powder to make a chocolate cake--maybe 1/2 cup... (depends on how chocolatey you like your cake!)

Have fun experimenting!

I remember you posting that recipe not too long ago, I should have tried that cake instead of what I made! That will be the next one I bake. Thank you so much and I am sure my kids will thank you too :D

I made this cake yesterday with Pineapple Upside down and it was a little gummy. I remembered you saying rice should be cooked slower and longer. I wonder if this would take some of the gumminess out of it?? The cake was good, just a little different texture.

Could you or anyone else, please tell me if there's a difference between Tapioca flour and tapioca starch? I'd really appreciate any help on this. Granny

Hi Granny,

If the gummyness is due to it not being cooked well enough in the center, then I'd say, "Yes!"

That was the main reason that I started baking my rice flour at a lower temperature and slower...

If the reason was that it has too much liquid, then... I'd try making it again, at a lower temp. just to see--before I reduced the liquid! :)

Since only my grandson is Celiac, it's been difficult finding a cake recipe everyone will eat, but the following Angel Food Cakes have been great.

White Angel Food Cake

1/2 c. cornstarch 1 1/4 c. egg whites

1/3 c. potato starch 1 Tbls. water

3/4 tsp xanthan gum 1 tsp. cream of tartar

3/4 c. sugar 2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. salt 1/3 c. sugar

Preheat oven to 350F. Combine first 5 ingredients and set aside. In large mixing bowl, combine egg whites, water, cream of tartar & vanilla. Mix until frothy. Continue beating and slowly add 1/3 c. sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form. Fold in flour mixture until well blended without lumps. Pour batter into ungreased angel food cake pan. Press batter down slightly to remove air spaces. Bake approx. 30-40 minutes, until light golden brown. Invert pan over glass bottle and cool cake upside down. When cool, remove from pan. Cut cake in half horizontally and frost with favorite frosting.

Chocolate Angel Food Cake

1/4 c. cornstarch

1/4 c. potato starch

1/4 c. cocoa Combine first 6 ingredients & set aside.

1/2 tsp. xanthan gum

3/4 c. sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

The remainder of ingredients and directions are the same as for White Angel Food Cake. These both make light, delicious cakes. Hope you like them.

I tried making the yellow cake and it turned out well... hard and rubbery. I do live at a high altitude and if that was the problem can anyone tell me what to do about it.

IN my gluten-free cookbooks ( I have 8 of them ) they say that tapioca starch and tapioca flour are the same thing. Just different names.

Okay, I made the yellow cake.... finally, and holy cow it was sooooo good, I would never have know it was a gluten-free cake, if I hadn't made it myself.

I am not a big fan of mayo, so I substituted with a combination of butter flavored shortening and regular butter (6 Tbs of shortening & 5 Tbs of butter). Then I beat the butter/shortening and sugar until it was light and fluffy, then added the eggs one at a time, it was delicious.... all my son could say was "mmmmm, yummmy cupcake!"

Thanks Jessica for the great recipe! I will definately be using this for future birthday parties!

Amy's gluten free yellow cake mix is indeed great tasting. I keep the mix on the shelf but only put 3/4 cups sugar in and not 1 1/4 cups. I then add one package gluten free Jello Jelly powder, depending on what flavour of cake my children want. It works great! One 85g pkg Jello equals 1/2 cup sugar. The rest I do the same as the directions.

A professional baker also told me to wrap up any cupcakes or cake in Saran Wrap while they are warm, but cool enough to handle with your bare hands and freeze immediatly. When they are thawed they taste like fresh baked. Comes in handy to have cupcakes in the freezer for those last minute birthday invitations.

Thanks Amy!

;) I have been using my old cake recipes and substituting

Betty Hagman's flour mix for the flour and adding xanthan gum.

These cakes seem to come out "just about normal." Most of

the time you can't tell it from the regular recipe. It doesn't

keep as long, I find, but it just means we can eat more of it

at a shorter period of time. Yummy. :P

Does anyone use their old cake recipes and just substitute Betty Hagman's

flour mix for the wheat flour? I do this all the time and use xanthan gum also,

and they come out great. :P

I use my old recipies! :P

I just substitute a mix of 1/2 regular white rice flour and 1/2 glutenous rice flour (super fine milled from an Asian food store) and they come out great!! Sometimes I play with the liquid content...I know what I want it to look like... And, I usually forget the xanthan gum entirely (just forgetfull!)

My main secret is to cook them "low and slow"--usually at 275-300F!

Don't overcook!!!!!!!!! It does take a few batches to learn to make them perfect, but my family (and friends) never complain!

Happy baking!

Connie

PS Glutenous rice flour doesn't have the kind of gluten we can't have....it's just rice!

Connie,

Thanks for the PS. I'd seen glutenous rice flour at the Asian Market and wondered what it was. Can you also explain the Sweet Rice. Is this just a brand name or is it something different? Thanks, Granny

Re: Glutinous rice flour

The lady in the Oriental store where I buy all of my

flours told me that glutinous flour is a sweet rice flour.

I use very little of it....only when a recipe calls for it.

I am not at all adventurous as some of you are. :o

    • I think it depends on how severe the damage was. I know from reading other accounts that it can take months to "heal". My two year old had immediate improvement (like two weeks), but we were very lucky to have our pediatrition catch the celiac quickly (within two months of noticible symptoms). It sounds like you are doing an awesome job keeping him safe. The only things I can think of off the top of my head are play doh and shampoo. Those were two things we were warned about by our nutritionist based on age. Play doh is made with wheat and shampoo poses an issue because they don't always keep their mouths closed. Maybe check lotions, soaps, toothpastes, lip balm? It's crazy where gluten is hidden in things like art supplies too. Our guy is now three but still puts hands/toys in his mouth frequently enough to cause worry, so we carry baby wipes in the car and use constantly. Hand sanitizer (in my opinion based on similar peanut protein studies) doesn't kill the gluten protein. If he attends daycare or preschool I'd check there for sensory tables full of oats, play doh, art supplies, etc. If you feel comfortable that there's not cross contamination, I'd say he just needs more time to keep healing. We had our little man's celiac panel ran again after three months and then another six months gluten free. His ttg levels drastically improved each time. Good luck!! I hope he feels better soon; it's misery watching your kiddo feel sick!
    • My 4 year old son was diagnosed with celiac nearly 2 months ago (confirmed by endoscopy). He has been off gluten for at least 7 weeks. We have made our entire house/kitchen gluten free, I pack his lunch, snacks, etc. I don't know how we could be any more careful. He's also off lactose.  The severe pain and sleepless night have definitely improved but he still has daily abdominal pain, with fairly bad pain a few times per week. Is this typical? I feel terrible for him and am hoping he just needs more time to heal? Curious how long it took for your children to feel better?!  
    • I am trying to figure out what is happening to me as well. Here are my symptoms: As long as I can remember I have had stomachaches. Severe constipation (no bowel movements for anywhere from 2-3 weeks).  Then Sept. 2015 I had to have my gallbladder removed and that is when the real symptoms began: -Anxiety increased significantly -My bowel movements became more regular but varying to 3 to 4 times a day  to once every few days. Frequent stomach pain and nausea -head to toe hives, usually my back starts itching first -Dental health fell apart -feet swell significantly when I eat wheat (usually only eat wheat) -Regardless of change in diet and increased exercise I continued to gain weight. Really the only time I can lose weight is when I basically eat once a day.  -Fatigue I had my doctor check my thyroid and for celiacs.  I just got my test results back and all blood work looks normal except low hdl She tested my IgG and IgA, they look normal (these are the only tests that were given so far unless other tests have not come back yet)  Is there more I need to ask her to do? I have gone back and forth with eating gluten and did cut it back prior to the testing but it was not obsolete (I ate it for the last few days prior to taking the test). I notice a huge difference in the pain when I go gluten free, any advice for someone just trying to figure out what is making me miserable?  
    • I believe it is ~$20-25 CAD for the standard jar (600g) at Whole Foods here, so more expensive. This is however, a bargain compared to most other protein powders I see (upwards of $50 for similar amounts!). Packaged food, animal products and alcohol in Canada are stupid expensive, especially if you're off the "main line" (ie. Great Lakes/St Lawrence corridor) as I am. I'm probably a little less affected by this as I never did purchase much packaged food even pre-diagnosis... and now I buy almost none. Luckily in-season veggies are super cheap in most of Canada except the far north, where veggies don't really grow haha.
    • So I'm still learning. We buy harvest land ground turkey because I like their company, but today in the ingredients I saw vinegar. It doesn't say on the package if it's gluten free. So I went ahead and bought a different brand that doesn't list vinegar as an ingredient, just rosemary extract.  I know that not all vinegar is "bad" for us. Has anyone contacted their company to know if their vinegar is derived from grains? Their turkey has never bothered me, but I was a silent celiac before I was diagnosed so I'm afraid that I'll never know for sure if I'm getting gluten. That's a whole other topic....haha thanks!
