Popular dating sites help people to find the one and conquer loneliness.
An added bonus is a chance to find a friend sharing your hobbies and interests.
It turned out that one of my friends Alice who was in the dating scene registered here
http://www.cupid.com/flirting.asp, found a man specializing in cooking gluten free cakes.
It was a lucky strike because my friend suffered gluten intolerance and loved cooking.
Their virtual friendship became real and gave birth to their business.
They opened a bakeshop selling gluten free baked foods.
But in most cases I prefer to cook them on my own.
Alice shares some of her best recipes of gluten free cakes that are much sought after.
My favorite one is carrot cake without gluten.
It is gorgeous and ideal for those who have just started to master culinary art.
The ingredients that can be named special in the recipe are gluten-free baking powder
and gluten free self-raising flour.
You’ll need to go to the supermarket and buy them in gluten-free section.
It is important not to forget about this and not to use ordinary baking powder and wheat flour.
Even tiny amount of gluten can impose hazard to life of a person suffering gluten intolerance,
the Celiac disease and gluten allergy.
The other ingredients are quite simp
Let’s start …
…with heating the oven and preparing a loaf tin.
The required temperature for this cake is 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
Grease a tin with some butter and line it with parchment.
By the way, choose 900g (2lb) loaf tin.
Then take 140g of butter and 200g of sugar and beat them.
Stop when this mixture becomes creamy.
140g of sultanas and 2 eggs will be the next to stir in.
Eggs should be lightly beaten in advance and added little by little.
Mix 50g of chopped nuts, 1 tsp of cinnamon, 1 tsp of gluten free baking powder and
200 g of gluten-free self-raising four and add them to the initial mixture.
It will take 50 minutes to bake.
When the skewer is clean after you poked it into the middle of the cake, take out the tin
and cool it for 15 minutes.
Then remove the carrot cake from the form and make the icing.
You’ll need 75g of butter softened beforehand, 175g of icing sugar and 3tsp of cinnamon.
First beat the butter, add the other ingredients and beat them as well until the mix is thick
Spread this icing on a cool cake and serve it.
This desert is a culmination of any party.
That’s why it is so important not to disappoint your guests, especially kids loving everything
that is sweet and chocolate.
This gluten free recipe is tried-and-true.
No one will guess that these cakes do not contain wheat.
Moreover, you can cook them for those who are OK with gluten because they are every bit
as tasty as wheat cakes.
Note: For a gluten free vegan version, you can replace eggs and butter with vegan substitutes.
