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 make my old recipes all the time.   The only thing you have to be sure of is if your flour mix has xanthan gum or not.   If it doesn't then you will need to add a bit per cup.   Don't use too much or it will get gummy or spongy  (it's powerful stuff!!!)  Xanthan gum (or guar gum) is used in gluten-free baking because it is a binding agent that gives baked goods elasticity.

      Add 1/2 tsp. per cup of flour blend for cakes, cookies, bars, muffins.
      Add 1 Tsp. per cup if you are making yeast bread, pizza dough, other baked goods that call for yeast.
    • Try using the gluten-free blends in a about 1 to one replacement, first start off with about 1/4 less then add by the tbsp til the texture is about right, as gluten-free flours sometimes cause the end result to be a bit drier. I honestly make a sugar cookie with almond flour that works great for the holidays, I do not use dairy or creamy butter so mine is a bit drier and crsiper then those from my childhood (yes I miss those) But it helps a bit with that craving. I might dig up mine, they are grain free with a deep nutty flavor and drier PERFECT for dipping in coffee or almond milk.
    • Unfortunately it's too late for the blood test unless I go back on gluten again, which is not something I want to do.   Thanks for the link you shared. It is instructive.
    • Hi Jmg, and thanks for your response.   2 weeks ago I went gluten free without having tested for celiac. I know now that that was a mistake but unfortunately I did not know at the time. As I have been informed, to do a blood test one have to be on gluten for at least 6 weeks prior to the test.   In any case, by the end of the first gluten free week, I felt exceptional improvements in typical IBS symptoms. I had higher energy, and I generally felt much better. By the end of the second week, however, some of the symptoms began to recur, like fatigue and upset stomach.    I know I am a noob and probably I should wait longer for my system to stabilise, so, I apologise if my post is noobish.
    • VERY much so. as me and poster boy can both attest just because levels are normal does not mean you do not need more. HECK their was even talk about raising the FDA recommended daily value of it as it was the suggested minimum. Either Docters best glycinate before bed or if you have C issues or no D issues then perhaps natural vitality calm citrate version in small doses at first before adjusting up.
