Eggless, GF, Soy free, Corn free Casein free Cake & Cupcakes

May 24, 2012

I took the recipe from POLYHOBBYMOMMY (you can find her at http://polyhobbymommy.autisable.com/).  Zak, like everything, did not like these at first but after a few tries, he now does.  Since we are on the subject, the diet takes time and like most kids, they need to try something several times before they like something.  Stick with it.  Same goes for you if you intend to try the diet along with them.  You will not like the GFCF lifestyle at first simply because it tastes different than what you are used to but the results will pay off eventually.

I am corn intolerant. I just had to leave a comment on your recipe. This is not a corn free recipe. Baking powder has corn starch in it. There are other substitutions for the powder such as a 3 to one ration of cream of tartar and baking soda. The coconut milk frosting lists powder sugar, this too has corn starch in it. There are corn free substitutions available at Whole Foods and Central Markets(plus some websites offer them as well). I have seen sites that explain how to make powder sugar in a food processor, but I like the convenience of just buying it. I hope this comment helps someone. I can not wait to try this recipe! It sounds amazing! I just wanted to give those with corn allergy/intolerance a heads up if you are new to being corn free. Have a blessed day!

Thank you Angela. Great information. Zak did have an intial allergy to corn and we have tried to keep most out of his diet however, as you probably know, corn is in everything.

Good luck you and thanks for the information.
