I know you have been waiting eagerly for this (yeah right, who would eat a flax egg if they didn’t have too), BUT for my friends with allergenic kiddos HERE IT IS!
ALMOST TED CUPCAKES
4 C flour (I used an even mix of rice, tapioca, and arrowroot)
2 t xanthan gum
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder (Hains is corn free)
2 C sugar (I used white)
4 flax eggs
1/2 t salt (I use canning salt)
1 C rice milk (I used Rice Dream Original Classic)
3 T vanilla (made my own with beans and brandy – this takes about a month)
1/2 C oil (I used safflower because I knew it was ok for us)
mix and bake – you know the drill
I did mine at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Two different types of pans; the cupcakes in the stoneware pan in papers came out great, the cupcakes in the silicone muffin pan the girls got for xmas – not as done. So adjust accordingly.
How were they? Good, really. Hubby said they were great. I wouldn’t go that far, but food in general is loosing it’s wow factor with me. Not much REALLY tastes great these days. I thought they were a bit sweet. (this coming from the girl that eats brown sugar by the spoonful to boost energy these days) I really had no idea on the sugar – a few ingredients were that way. I think if I make them again I’m going to try and replace the xanthan gum. I just found a page that mentions a slick feeling on the roof of the mouth (here). This might be why I wasn’t jumping up and down about them.
