My daughter turns 10 Friday, and she wants these gluten-free cupcakes in a recipe book for her class birthday party. That is no problem, but for a birthday cake later that night, she also asked if I could do the cherry recipe. I am not an improv baker, and as expensive as the flours are I don't want to mess up! So what do you think - would this cupcake recipe work for a cake too?

Flour Blend (and if you don't have this- it is SO good for any flour substitute):

1 C. white or brown rice flour

1 C. sorghum flour

1 C tapioca flour

1 C cornstarch

1 C almond or coconut flour

Cupcakes:

1 jar cherries

1 C sugar

2 eggs

1-1/4 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp xanthan gum

1/2 C vegtable oil

1/2 cup soymilk (or other milk)

1 tsp vanilla

mix bake 20 min at 350 degrees

What do you think? Would I use this for a cake recipe too? I wonder what temperature I'd cook it at for how long - 350 for 25 is what another cake recipe says - but that is for chocolate.

And this is from "Recipes for Gluten Free Kids" that a friend got us from Sams. I LOVE this cookbook.

Thank you!

I LOVE this site!

I baked my Gluten Free German Chocolate cake at 350 degree for 35 minutes I set the timer for 25 then added 5 minutes to the timer until I got a clean toothpick. For the icing to give it more of a cherry taste I would go with a white icing with more cherries and juice in it, it turns a light pink but with a little food coloring you can take it to a red or almost any other color. Good luck!

it's hard to tell how much cake batter this is going to make, etc...and therefore what pan size you would use, which would effect the baking time. Does it make 12 or 24 cupcakes? usually a 24 cupcake recipe will yield 2 8"-9" layers. those I would bake for 25-30 min. at 350. but I would also be "toothpick" checking at the 25 min mark. The worst thing to do to gluten-free cakes is over bake. They will also continue to bake a wee bit in the pan after you take them out.

I have a really delicious, fail proof chocolate cake recipe that only uses 2 rice flours if you'd like the recipe.

good luck!

Thanks Jeannie - You helped me realize that I should double the recipe for a cake, because this is only for 12 cupcakes. So thank you! I'd love your choc cake recipe when you have time to write it down. - Bobbie

Great idea on the icing! It will make it a nice pink - perfect for a group of 10 year old girls.

I have no idea on what to tell you about your cherry cake. I still am just buying Betty Crocker mixes since our diagnosis in December. LOL But, I have one turning 9 on Saturday. My MIL is making a gluten free strawberry cake with cream cheese icing. The funny thing is that my daughter asked for half lime green icing and half pink. So we are having a green and pink strawberry cake! Who says gluten free can't be interesting.

Note: If you ever do just buy the gluten free cake mixes, if you will empty a pack of instant pudding into it (not made) it makes them so yummy! It makes them "heavy" too. Sometimes I can eat a cupcake and still want another one or two or three. These are very heavy and filling! I can stretch them out longer.

Happy 10th B-day to your daughter!

Great pudding tip! Thanks!

And yes - we love betty crocker. I've relied on her cake mixes, and some non gluten-free kids thought it was "okay", but when I made this other recipe before the kids thought it was better than wheat cake. So - you know kids - the last thing I want is for her friends to go "yuck!"

Good luck with the party and that cake!

Happy 9th to your daughter!

    • Cheetah, We all have to make our own health decisions based on our individual circumstances.  There is not any “one size fits all” approach.  ☹️In your daughter’s case, she was asymptomatic.  I also would find it hard to believe that she had celiac disease despite confirmed biopsies and antibodies tests.  I get the denial.  I just had anemia that was disguised by a genetic anemia.  I was shocked at the suggestion of celiac disease.  My hubby had been gluten free for 12 and I knew exactly what the treatment meant — gluten free for life.  A total game changer.   Because we have bought our health insurance for over 20 years, we have lived through the times that I was uninsurable due to my Hashimoto’s, Rosacea and toe nail fungus (yes, that is right).    I never went without, but I could not freely jump from plan  to plan.  My premiums were higher than my hubby’s.  So, we worry that health insurance could change and I would be uninsurable again.  (Did I mention that our annual premium is $24,000?) However, the genetic test can be invaluable but is mostly used to help rule out celiac disease.  There are other genes associated, but they have not been studied well.   “So far, scientists have identified over a dozen possible non-H.L.A. genes that may be associated with celiac disease, but whether these genes actually play a role remains to be seen.”  (Sheila Crowe, now head of the American GI Association).   https://consults.blogs.nytimes.com/2010/01/13/genetic-testing-for-celiac-disease/ The antibodies test, in conjunction with the biopsies is the best means of diagnosing celiac disease to date.  The blood test is the least reliable as there are false positives (rare).    It is hard to dispute villi damage.  Too bad your Aunt did not get a biopsy, but understandably, an endoscopy can be costly if you lack insurance and there are many other reasons, so many are forced to forgo this procedure.   https://www.ueg.eu/education/latest-news/article/article/mistakes-in-coeliac-disease-diagnosis-and-how-to-avoid-them/   It is unfortunate that we must weight the risks and benefits of everything.    
    • Kirsty, in my experience, being ‘gluten light’ is not helpful. I think it doesn’t make any sense tbh – it does more harm than good. The withdrawal period is very different from being gluten-free long term. The withdrawal symptoms can be extremely unpleasant but they are temporary! Let’s say 4-6 weeks. I personally was feeling like a drug addict or an alcoholic in rehab at the time. I was having all kinds of withdrawal issues – one of them was extreme hunger and unusual stomach cramps caused by hunger. I had to eat approx. every 2 hours – otherwise I would get very dizzy and lightheaded. It felt as if my body was finally getting the types of foods it needed (= gluten free) and wanted these ‘right’ foods constantly.   The fact that my body viewed gluten as a drug and was addicted to it was a proof in itself for me that I am gluten intolerant. Let’s say I wouldn’t eat any potatoes for 2 or 3 weeks – nothing would happen. Often the types of food we love the most, crave and can’t live without are the very types of food we are intolerant and addicted to. If you’re not a diabetic, the hypoglycemia could resolve completely on the gluten-free diet.   My advice would be read about gluten withdrawal and don’t let it discourage you.
    • I know this thread is eight years old, but I'm bringing it back because ingredients have (very likely) changed since 2009. Jimmy Dean breakfast bowls still don't list gluten, wheat, etc. But they did give my mom and I terrible stomachaches. I know the scientific method calls for repeat experiments but we don't really feel like it. However, I will say we usually stick to a strict gluten-free diet (only eat if it states gluten-free or if there's no way it contains gluten; fruit, veggies, etc) So it's extremely unlikely it was anything else. These were just a risk we took because there's so few explicitly gluten-free quick meals- we both work long-hour jobs and have school so quick meals are very helpful. TL;DR: They are very likely NOT gluten-free. Just because it doesn't say gluten/wheat in the ingredients doesn't mean it's not present. Call me paranoid, but I feel it's a good rule.
    • Victoria. Yes I got tested for Addison’s but passed. The first test I barely passed. I have had adrenal issues for a while. Adrenal fatigue, but not advanced. I always had a lot of food intolerances. But gluten was fine. Histamine and salicylates where a problem though. Mast cell activation syndrome. In hindsight possibly caused by Lyme and my genetic makeup. Then I tried psych meds and they put me on valium to counteract startup side effects. I actually had a paradoxical reaction, not side effects. And after waiting that out I could not stop valium at once. I went to a very heavy withdrawal process for a year. That is when my mast cell actvation syndrome gt way worse and I became gluten intolerant. Had hardly any foods left. And because the withdrawal of gluten was so heavy, I could not go through with it fully. I hoped it would just go away after withdrawal was over. But I still have this limited diet and am gluten intolerant 2,5 years afer withdrawal. But the withdrawal process really hurt my adrenals and my nervous system. I can’t even tolerate most supplements. I guess the valium withdrawal and damage it did is also the reason that stopping gluten gives such bad withdrawal.
    • Read this about the benefits of having a celiac disease diagnosis.  It is written for doctors, but it is very useful.   https://www.ueg.eu/education/latest-news/article/article/mistakes-in-coeliac-disease-diagnosis-and-how-to-avoid-them/
