I'm going to my nephew's birthday party and my sister asked my to bring some sort of dessert that is both gluten and dairy free as one of the kids cannot have either. I know the gluten end as I myself as gluten-free, but anyone have any good and kid friendly desserts I could make accommodating both dairy and gluten free????

Jello is safe, but I was thinking more of a dessert like a gluten-free/df cupcake because he couldn't eat the cake. I know how to make good gluten-free cupcakes, but unsure how to make them dairy free.

Is she expecting you to make a gluten-free/Dairy Free Birthday Cake?

I'm pretty sure there are recipes like that on this site if you use the search engine. If not, "Living Without" has some recipes if you register.

If you have seedless watermelons available in your area, it could be cool to carve and decorate a watermelon. You may even be able to stick candles in the rind with those little plastic holders. Here's some fun ideas ...

It's easy and yummy. Just use Earth's Balance spread in place of the butter required and then buy or make chocolate frosting. You will have to read the frosting containers and look for fudge rather than milk chocolate. There were several options that were Gluten-free Casein-free.

I made the yellow cake for my daughter for my birthday. I used Nucoa margarine and also Ener-G egg replacer. Came out well. Have also made the brownies using coconut oil and egg replacer. Tried the cookies but they didn't come out so well. They tasted fine. They just sort of melted into one another.

The cookies were fine for us. I think if they're spreading, it helps to chill them a bit. I think the butter or replacement has to be softened (not melted) for that reason.

Of course now that I'm not doing soy, we've got to figure another way out :)

Jules Shepard has a recipe on her blog for a cake (either white or chocolate) and she's big on substitutions. My link While you may not have her flour, here's the recipe for Nearly Normal Flour, which I think hers is based on.

Here's the link for Celebratory Cakes to give you some ideas from her for a boy's birthday.

My favorite gluten-free/DF/SF goodie is black bean brownies. If you've never tried this recipe from Living Without magazine, you'll be amazed at how wonderful they are. Don't be put off by black beans in dessert. Even if I could eat anything without trouble, I'd still be eating these instead of the ones with flour. They are the best brownies I've ever eaten.

One note: I use top these with ENJOY LIFE gluten-free/DF/SF chocolate chips. But even if you can't find them, they'll still be a hit.

Made the Betty Crocker chocolate cupcakes replacing butter for veggie shortening...mmmmmmm! They were delicious!

However, I am curious to try this black bean recipe in the future when I have some time--whenever that is!

    • I have 2 copies of DQ9. One from each parent.
    • Obviously from the outside it's difficult to comment, but if I were you I'd leave allergies for now and pursue definitive celiac testing via your doctor and preferably a gastroenterologist. They're the first port of call for digestion issues. If you do wind up being celiac it's possible that other allergies or intolerances would resolve or improve in any case once you've been on the diet for awhile. That's been my experience.   Ps note that wheat allergy is completely different and unrelated to celiac or non celiac gluten sensitivity. 
    • Thank you ps, it may be better if the thread title was changed as we now have two 'overwhelmed' topics. If it were 'Bile ducts and celiac?' then it may attract more users with direct experience?
    • Hello and welcome Maybe? From reading others accounts there's a big variation in how quickly gluten antibodies respond to the gluten diet. I did similar to you and my doctor said that 1 week back on should be enough to show up in a test, but he didn't know what he was talking about sadly... The 2 week figure refers to the endoscopy, for blood testing 8-12 weeks on gluten is more normal.  Basically if it comes back positive fine you have your answer. If its negative it may be a false negative due to your going gluten free beforehand. If you want to pursue a diagnosis then yes. Don't go off gluten again until you confirm that all testing is complete.  Keep a journal noting any symptoms, that may be useful to you later. More info here: There's some good info in the site faq: https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/announcement/3-frequently-asked-questions-about-celiac-disease/ I know how you feel! Partway through my gluten challenge I knew that too results notwithstanding. Fwiw I think you've found your answer. Good luck!
    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.
