Find a recipe for an eight year old birthday cake (homemade: from on 2004-05-01

I have an 8 year old niece has been recently diagnosed as having celiac. My own son's 8th birthday is next month and I would like to bake a cake for my niece so she may have a slice of cake in her party bag to take home, (and hopefully the family can enjoy too!). Can any one help

br /> The easiest way would be to find a health food store to
purchase a pre-packaged gluten-free cake mix. Otherwise
you'll have to purchase many different flours to make a mix
plus buy xanthan gum(quite expensive) and other items you
would not normally have in your cupboard

I loathe the thought of packet mixes as they are always so processed. The following is a delicious cake and no-one realised at my son's birthday that it is gluten free. It is also quite a firm cake and therefore easy to carve if you wish to shape the cake into a novelty cake.

8 oz butter
8 oz caster sugar
8oz grated chocolate
4oz ground almonds
4 oz rice flour ( or plain flour if you don't need to be gluten free)
6 eggs (separated)

beat the butter and sugar to a cream and beat in the chocolate which has been gently melted. Add beaten egg yolks the flour and almonds. lastly fold in the whisked egg whited. Pour into a large round tin or two sandwich tins and bake in a moderate oven for 40 ish minutes or longer if in one tin.

Yummy

Hi - Can you tell me what caster sugar is? Is it like our white ganulated sugar here in the US ? Do you use sweetened chocolate or baking choclate? Do you weigh your ingredients...or is 4 oz considered 1/2 cup?? Thanks for you help.
CAN YOU E-MAIL ME DIRECTLY?...as I found this cite by accident and am at the library not at home.
Thanks so much

An egg free recipe for a cake You could try making shortbread type biscuits with different flavours - chocolate add cocoa, ginger, cinnamon.
look at
http//www.peter-thomson.com/glutenfree/Shortbread.html

Stick them together with an icing.

You can also add dried fruit such as sultanas or raisins into the mix.

This is a very rich sugar / butter mixture so a child should not be allowed to eat too much at one go

Re: Find a recipe for an eight year old birthday cake (homem: from Peter on 2007-07-28

Caster sugar is fine grained white sugar - small grain size so it will go through a sifter.
Known as superfine sugar in the US
