This is exciting. :D She is on my local news this morning. They will be taste testing gluten-free cakes.

I have her book on my wish list...just need to find something else to order to get free shipping (not usually a problem for me). :P

Ann Byrn was on a local radio talk show here this week and she convinced a non-Celiac host that gluten-free can be tasty. I need to find a couple more books to order thru Edward Hamilton to justify the shipping costs. Are there other gluten-free cookbooks any of you can recommend?

One of my neighbors gave me that book to give to my daughter.

She had made a gluten-free and a regular strawberry cake and the host liked the gluten-free better.

I received my copy of this book this week and the recipes all look so good and easy to make. One note, this is a dessert cookbook and all recipes start with a gluten-free boxed cake mix, usually yellow. The only items from scratch are the icings, glazes and fillers.

Glad you mentioned that - boxed cake mixes are such a turn off for me - definitely will not be getting this book! Love to bake/cook from scratch.

The Culinary Institute of America's gluten-free baking book is good - it includes recipe for cannoli, yeast/other breads, eclairs, bagels and so on. One of my favourites! Also like Annalise Roberts' book.

Awesome! I hope you enjoy it. It contains so many recipes I have not seen elsewhere before and is written by a chef who really knows food science and what he is doing. :)

Glad to be of help. I mostly quit baking from scratch about 25 years ago, probably because somewhere deep down I realized everything was having an adverse effect on me, and switched to mixes for what little I did bake. These days for purposes other than baking I am learning to use the substitutes for wheat flour. Some of the sauces look a little strange without the opacity but their flavor has been declared delicious by my husband, so we have basically become a totally gluten-free household. The one thing I do want to find is a good bread recipe. I never was a big bread eater but I use it for hot browns, meatloaf and stuffing so it cannot be sweet. The other thing I would like a tried and true recipe for is angel food cake.

I have the Culinary Institute book, but never use it. Many of the recipes are very complex and call for ingredients that I can't find.

I love the Cake Doctor book. I'm going to make the carrot cake today.

Another book I like is Carol Fenster's 100 Best Gluten Free Recipes.

OH!! Angel food cake...I had the worst craving for it yesterday! Is there such a thing as a GOOD gluten-free angel food cake?

I have not yet tried making gluten-free angel food cake. Roben Ryberg has a recipe for angel food cake in The Gluten-Free Kitchen and http://www.food.com/ has a few recipes. Plus I saw this one on Taste of Home (it had great reviews):

Gluten-Free Angel Food Cake Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups egg whites (about 10)
  • 3/4 cup plus 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1/4 cup cornstarch
  • 1/4 cup white rice flour
  • 1/4 cup tapioca flour
  • 1/4 cup potato starch
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Assorted fresh fruit, optional

Directions

Place egg whites in a large bowl; let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Sift 3/4 cup sugar, cornstarch, flours and potato starch together twice; set aside.

Add cream of tartar, salt and vanilla to egg whites; beat on medium speed until soft peaks form. Gradually add remaining sugar, about 2 tablespoons at a time, beating on high until stiff peaks form. Gradually fold in flour mixture, about 1/2 cup at a time.

Gently spoon into an ungreased 10-in. tube pan. Cut through the batter with a knife to remove air pockets. Bake on the lowest oven rack at 350

Sylvia, this looks like a wonderful recipe and I cannot wait to try it. The only other one I had found called for brown rice flour and I find that rather gritty, or at least what our local co-op carries in bulk is.

I also had no idea Taste of Home was now providing gluten-free recipes. I used to enjoy their magazine and still use a number of recipes from it, my favorite being green pepper steak which I converted from slow cooker to stove top. And it has always been gluten-free, even before I realized I needed that, as it is thickened with corn starch and I serve it over rice.

Hope it works for you. I love angel food cake. I've read that you can give brown rice flour a whirl in a blender to make it finer. I did some in a new larger capacity coffee mill I bought (not used for coffee). I know Authentic Foods makes a superfine brown rice flour but I haven't seen it around here.

Taste of Home has some gluten-free recipes on their website. The angel food cake was a subscriber-only recipe or else I'd have just posted a link. I do get the magazine. I keep debating whether I'll keep it or not...and then I renew. lol

The only thing I've tried was the strawberry cake recipe, but made cupcakes instead. They are wonderful!! Even after freezing and thawing, they are still great! They are BEST out of the oven, but they retain their moisture well. I can't wait to try more of her recipes!!

I bought this book and the Annalise Roberts book, so I think I'm set for baking books. I've decided that I'm just going to use the flour mixes and pretend that they are just the all purpose flour equivalent, instead of trying to do everything from scratch with a variety of flours myself. There's just no sense in putting that much effort into it. So, from here on out, BC yellow cake mix and probably Pamela's pancake mix are going to be my go-to flours for baking.

I received my Cake Mix Doctor cookbook yesterday...super fast shipping since I only ordered it on the 24th. I also added two more cookbooks to get free shipping and finally used my Amazon gift card that I've sat on since Christmas. (The Gluten-Free Gourmet Bakes Bread by Bette Hagman and Free for all Cooking: 150 Allergy Friendly Recipes by Jules Shepard). Now I've gotta quit buying cookbooks...well, for awhile at least.

Glad to hear the cupcakes are still good after freezing and thawing! So far everything I've baked tastes better the first day. I think I'd like to try a bundt cake...haven't made one for years and just bought a new bundt pan. Actually I've replaced a lot of baking pans since going gluten-free.

You'll like Annalise Roberts' cookbook. I've tried some breads from it and last weekend I was pleased with the pizza crust I made from it.

Have you tried banana bread using Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix? It's my go to recipe and I've made it often.

I made the Boston Cream Pie a couple of weeks ago. Since this was my first attempt at this formulation of the recipe the cake was not perfect and cracked on the top. Not a big problem since the top actually ends up on the bottom when the whole thing is assembled. Also I did not use her frosting recipe but the one I have always used, cocoa, powdered sugar, melted margarine and vanilla, thinning with hot water. My family prefers the harder frosting on this cake rather than the soft. All in all it was deemed a success and my mother was most adamant that she take half of the left overs home.

I finally made a cake from this cookbook yesterday and I'm pretty pleased with it. It's the Chocolate Chip Cake, which I baked in a bundt pan.

The next one I'm going to try soon is the Darn Good Chocolate Cake, which is also a bundt cake. Has anyone tried it?

New to gluten free eating/baking/cooking but the 1st lesson I learned from my local gluten-free grocery was that brown rice flour should be thrown into a magic bullet/ninja/food processor before being used. It makes it not gritty. I have not tried it, just thought I would pass on the info...

I have done that with brown rice flour (actually in a larger-capacity Mr. Coffee mill, which is not used for coffee). I'm not sure how much it helped but I did it anyway. lol :P

Just to update: I made the Darn Good Chocolate Cake and it was a hit with my gluten-eating friends. I also baked it in a bundt pan. I used a BC devils food cake mix, cocoa and mini-chocolate chips. Instead of sprinkling confectioner's sugar on top on it, I used a chocolate ganache glaze. Yum!

One change I made in the directions for prepping the pan, I greased it with Crisco and skipped spraying it with nonstick cooking spray and dusting with rice flour or cocoa. It released from the pan perfectly with no splotches of either rice flour or cocoa.

I have made three different cakes from that book, and all of them were really good. The carrot cake was my non-Celiac husband's favorite, but the cinnamon breakfast cake was really good , too. I made the rum cake for a party and every crumb was gone. I used an old recipe from a friend for the glaze, and it had a lot more rum!

    • Yes I eliminated high glycemic foods. Eating only small amounts of carbs. No fruits, added sugars, starchy grains. Eating lots of fibrous veggies. Eating olive oil, as I don’t seem to tolerate the saturated fats or MCT oil. Allergic to nuts and seeds unfortunately.
    • Just wondering if you have an update at all? Going through the same thing at the the moment with my type 1 14 yr old. I would be interested to know what your gi said and how your daughters doing now? xx
    • Please check the date on post, you just responded and tried talking to a person from 7 years ago. On consideration to the subject Poatoes are a huge flare factor for my UC and cause my blood sugar to sky rocket...I am not even diabetic but for some reason potatoes (hash browns) that I tried a few months ago with some eggs shot it up over 400. not even a control test with table sugar managed that.
    • Have you tried eliminating high glycemic foods? Fruits, added sugars, starchy grains, potatoes. etc? Also adding in slow digesting fibers and fats can prevent insulin spikes, MCT oil is also known to help and protein. Many find consuming nuts and seeds higher in fiber early on in the meal or before a meal can slow down insulin responses and prevent spikes. I always tend to eat a hand full of whole shell pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, cocoa nibs, etc. while fixing my food, this gets me starting to feel fuller sooner, and seems to help in over all down the road. I know I had some references somewhere to these. I know I read somewhere about the antioxidants in in whole shell seeds like pumpkin and hemp also helped the body regulate insulin levels.
    • Dear AWOL Cast Iron Stomach, Your husband is right bread is bad for you. Of course it's more than bread and gluten, until now it was amateur hour trying to self diagnose and tame this "lion". However they let you down. You slipped through the cracks over and over again it is not your fault your not the Dr. You made mistakes and errors acting like a celiac , not knowing for sure you were, and not feeling like you could fully claim to be or reach out for support . Now you know your husband was closer than any Dr. up until now to determine your illness. Now something is in your record, now hopefully you will be dismissed less,respected more, maybe they will realize its an actual condition going on- not all in your head. Will they? Who knows! Do you care? This is now official, now explained, you not only have to give up gluten, but milk, and corn. In fact give up 98% of processed anything. The cluster of lifetime symptoms were not  "just you", "in your head", "you are not a difficult patient", "when the Dr or nurse looks at you like a nut job you don't have to feel the dismissiveness and condescension. It's an illness and nothing to be shameful of  what is shameful is they and their colleagues missed you failed you. In fact being missed for 4 decades is unjust to you. You were missed time and time again from age 5 to 43, decade after decade after decade, symptom after symptom. It's not that you didn't try from the 5 year old begging to go to the Dr, to the 20 going to the hospital again for another bout of gastroenteritis hoping to get an IV, to the thirty year old saying something is wrong why is this happening, to the forty something a restaurant fed me gluten when I asked for gluten-free, I have been gluten free for 3 1/2 years ,  I have more symptoms and pain than before . I felt so good for those gluten-free years- please help me-make it stop. So many things explained it makes you experience a range of emotions. Grateful: Relief and gratefulness someone finally agreed to send you to someone to test you. She saw past the other diagnosis' and the albatross IBS diagnosis. All the ages and stages of symptoms are explained they all fit. Everyone of them! Someone else also has had them. You are not alone. Read the forum-you fit like a glove. Anger: Anger for the way you have been treated by the medical community, family, some ex boyfriends, friends and coworkers. Anger for the length of time you endured this. Hurt: Hurt for the times people said unkind things to you when you were symptomatic or flaring . you are experiencing symptoms that change your body people are rude to congratulate you on a "pregnancy" you didn't announce or ask why you are not slim when you hardly eat. you are not over emotional -  you are suffering from neuro symptoms, you are not making this up for attention Sad & Guilty: Can I work again? Do I want to work again? What kind of work can I do now? Can I find a job and work PT from home? You didn't envision this your husband having to be sole bread winner now what? I am overwhelmed thinking about this-stop? You now have closure and know how and why you lost your first pregnancy. You now know why you were high risk, complications,  with your children in Pregnancy & Delivery that they couldn't be explained back then It explains why in pregnancy you lost weight and why your morning sickness was extreme and seemed to last longer than anyone you knew,  that your Puppp rash was likely misdiagnosed DH It is not your fault none of it. Please forgive yourself for what you did not know. Your children forgive you. Believe them when they say its not your fault. You can cry, but you can no longer blame yourself. You are a good mother just one with an illness your children will learn to accept. Withdrawn: Why are you withdrawing from your husband? Should you ask him if he wants a divorce? Should you push him away? You didn't know before marriage what was happening you knew something autoimmune was brewing shortly after, but nothing showed on tests. Was this unfair to do to him? Doesn't he deserve someone better? Someone well? Now you can't retire and travel the world as society retirement cliché dictates. Can you afford this illness ? How will this financially impact your spouse, your family?. Why did you do this to this poor man? You are so selfish, you wanted marriage and kids, but was this fair to them? Don't your kids deserve a healthier mom? How will this impact them? Oh my gosh are they going to get this too? Will they grow to resent you? Your illness and diet has taken over their lives! Oh gosh no one say hi to me-please. I hate people and I am too sick to pretend and be fake friendly today. I don't want to tell you I am ill. I don't want to talk about this. I have to absorb this. I hate you people for being healthy. Don't tell me I don't look well. I will snap, I don't want to snap, I am irritable ,and don't feel well. Just keep giving off the unapproachable vibe keep them away.  Am I strong enough to do this? Acceptance: Calm down the inflammation, lack of nutrients, and GI damage is messing with your head. Your husband said for better for worse. Your kids have no choice you are their mother and you are a good mom -you have always been, always will be even on your worst day. If they get this they will be ok. You are strong enough to do this you are just ill and most importantly you must remain here in case they get this so you can guide them and be there for them. Got it? Go on the forum you are not alone it will be ok. You will get this lion back in the cage and manage it. It will be ok. If you can't travel in retirement one day you will find other hobbies or things to occupy your time. He's not going to leave you over this. If he does it will be ok. You'll manage-you always do. You have an answer, you knew it was coming, keep reading, learning, seeking support, and one day it will all work out. You will process all this and will be at peace-until then keep going and above all AVOID GLUTEN!
