I thought I read somewhere a while ago that you can make or buy gluten free recipes for the easy bake oven cake mixes? Does anyone know anything about this?

The cupcake maker that is similiar to the easy bake oven offers gluten free mixes. At least, they did last Christmas when I was looking at them. All the icings too were gluten free.

There is a company that sells gluten-free Easy Bake oven kits. Food-Tek (www.FoodTek.com). They also make mixes that you can mix with water and microwave for waffles and slices of bread. The waffles are great for sleepovers as you don't need to keep it frozen. My daughter loves them.

It is not at all like the Easy Bake Oven. You have to bake them in the microwave and then use the unit to ice the cupcakes. The unit was very difficult to clean, if it worked right. We had one cupcake that got hurled to the floor. In total, my daughter made three cupcakes. She wound up icing the third one by hand because it just didn't work right. She also said the cupcakes and icing were not very tasty. I bought extra mixes and we still have them all. She has shown no interest whatever in it after the first three subsequent times we used it. She just got more progressively annoyed with the thing.

If you look at the really really small print on the "cupcake refill" packages for the cupcake maker thingy, Food-Tek also makes these mixes. It says on the package that they are gluten free (but manufactured on equipment that processes wheat). I bought this at Wal-Mart to try in the easy bake oven but we haven't gotten around to it yet.

The ones for the cupcake maker do say that. I haven't seen the others. Daughter was less than thrilled with them not only for the taste/texture but for that reason and the fact that they include egg and/or dairy.

I totally agree with juliebove....the cupcake maker was a complete waste of money, I would not recommend it. It just didn't work and all the little parts were terrible to clean up; the mixes do say they are processed in a facility that also processes wheat......it was just very disappointing.

Tonight there was a commercial for their new product that makes small cakes with fondant. Daughter said she wanted it. :rolleyes: I reminded her how bad the cupcake maker was. But then she insisted she make a cupcake. I told her she could if she got out the mixes and stuff.

And guess what? The box of refills said it was vanilla cupcakes with vanilla frosting. But in the package was yellow cake mix and strawberry frosting. She was less than thrilled.

The cupcake came out all flat and spilled over the side of the paper cup. She also said it was mushy inside. She wasn't too happy.

    • Hi Could a mod please move this post:   and my reply below to a new thread when they get a chance? Thanks! Matt
    • Hello and welcome Firstly, don't worry about it but for ease your post (and hopefully my reply) will probably be moved to its own thread. That will make it easier for others to see it and reply and also help Galaxy's own thread here on track and making sense.  The antibodies that the celiac tests look for can drop very quickly, so... maybe? Celiac is difficult to test for, there are different tests and sometimes someone doesnt test on one but does on the other. If you can get a copy of the tests and post it here the community may be able to help explain the results.  It may have shown damage to the villi, the little tendrils in your intestine that help you extract nutrients from your food. Celiac is one, but not the only, way in which they can get damaged leading to a vast number of potential symptoms and further making diagnosis a tricky proposition. Definitely, there's a connection. Here's a page that explains it in detail: https://stomachachefree.wordpress.com/2012/03/21/liver-disease-in-celiacs/ Fantastic  It sounds as if your doctors were happy to diagnose you on the basis of the endoscopy? It may be then that you've found your answer. I hope so, you've clearly had a rotten and very scary time.  I'm sure with the positive reaction to the diet you want to go on and get healthy, but I would only add that you should discuss this with your doctors, because they may want to exclude other potential causes if they've not confirmed celiac at this point. Check out the advice for newly diagnosed here: To your family I'd simply say that celiac is a disease of the autoimmune system, the part of our body that fights diseases and keeps us safe. In celiac people the autoimmune system see's the gluten protein found in wheat, barley, or rye grains as a threat to the system and it produces antibodies to attack it and in doing so attacks it's own body as well. It's genetic in component so close family members should consider a test if they have any of the many symptoms. There's roughly 1 person in 100 with celiac but most of them don't know it and are risking getting or staying sick by not finding out.  There's further info for them and you here: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I'm going to ask a mod to move your post and my reply to a new thread, but wanted to give you an answer first The good news is you've found a great site and there will be lots of support for you here. You've also got 'lucky' in that if you're going to have an autoimmune condition, celiac is a good one  Most react really well to the gluten free diet and you will hopefully have much more healing to come! Best wishes Matt
    • Please share what was so difficult about starting your account.
    • I'm new here so please forgive me if I'm in the wrong forum. But I could use some clarity and input.. So I'll try to make my story brief as possible😀 So about 8 months ago I began itching uncontrollably and after going to the Dr for labs she found my liver enzymes were 5x what they should be and was referred to a gastro Dr.  Gastrointestinal Dr ran multiple scans, blood work over the next 2 months and referred me to teaching hospital with a " tumor board" apparently I had a mass within my bile ducts that was blocking bile from liver. Was given a grim diagnosis of rare cancer and told would be dead within the year. Then had an endoscopy done to get tissue of the mass and for some reason it had partially resolved and was no longer blocking bile duct. At this point they could not find and cancerous cells. So fast forward 3 months I'm still in pain and had another endoscopy and the biopsy taken showed high possibility of celiacs.  The blood work was negative for celiac but after the grim cancerous diagnosis I had been unable to eat for 2 weeks or so and so I'm not sure if that would have skewed the labs?. How could the biopsy show high possibility of celiac?  And had anyone heard of celiac causing inflammation in the bile ducts?  I have been gluten-free for 6 weeks and have been feeling remarkably better pain in the upper right quadrant is less, and migraines ( I have had for my whole life) have lessened.  So all this to say I don't understand celiacs and how to explain it to family. Or how all of a sudden this happens. Ask if anyone can shed any insight I would appreciate it. Blessings   
    • Thank you for taking the time for sharing that info. Don't we have the best disease ever! There's got to be a better way to cut down the scarring. Yes, I've scratched till it bleed. Can't help it. It's like having a bunch of mosquito bites. Yes, only gluten free now. Still have bursts, so probably am being exposed to gluten. Will need to stop dapsone soon. Good luck with your situation.
