Let them eat cake. Seriously.

Fine. no wheat + a million other things. Whatever!

I insist on cake. Cake is an essential food group, not to mention it’s breakfast food potential.

This is my main recipe. I make mini-donuts out of it in little, cute, pans I got at Target. Love it.

Today as a special celebration of my new TOTAL no-gluten life…. I added chocolate chips.

The madness continues.

Brownie Mini-donuts.

  • 1/2 C sunflower oil
  • 1 1/2 C sugar
  • 2 eggs <replaced with 2 T ground flax and 4T HOT Water>mix and let stand a few minutes before adding.
  • 2 C gluten-free flour mix ( I used rice, potato and tapioca blend)
  • 1/2 C cocoa powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum (grown on corn and I don’t care)
  • 1 1/2 tsp soda
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 2 C grated zuchini ( I used 5 little zuchini and blenderized them to a pulp-which reduced the volume)
  • 2 tsp vanilla

Mix it all up and put in mini donut pans. Bake at 350 for 10 minutes.

I added 1/2 cup Enjoy life choc chips to the second 1/2 of the batter.. mmmmmmmm.. *poof* yummy.


Sprue this.

So. Finally. They.said. sprue. I. told. you. I. was. sick. ha. so. there.

Yeah.. well if it was ONLY wheat/barley/rye… that would be one thing.

But stack on the other things?

  • no soy-
  • no eggs-
  • no dairy-
  • no tomato-
  • no banana-
  • no corn, etc, etc, etc… and we have real trouble.

Tapioca anyone? I actually have a great egg free recipe! yummy.
