    Remeber the blood test I took?It came back positive for gluten allergy
    I've eaten it all my life and I love everything wheat related.
    I'm cutting it off, see if it does something for me...

    The frozen GF bread in my local supermarket is absolutely horrid, so I guess I'll stick to rice cakes for a substitute until I find/learn to bake something better.
    Dá-lhe, Isadora!!
    Lead me not into temptation. I can find it, and eat it, all by myself.

    beepbeep, check your city for a well reviewed GF bakery. There's one near me that I stumbled upon when I ordered their buttery pecan square at a coffee shop they source out to. That was a month ago and I can STILL taste it in my mouth, one of the best things I've ever eaten, ever. Turns out their home shop is a full stocked bakery including bags of different GF flour mixes.

    Do you mind sharing your almond pound cake recipe? Also, to clarify, is almond flour just almond meal? Or is it almond meal further blitzed in the food processor?

    3 weeks and counting. I'm not strictly GF (I had sushi with soysauce the other day), but I feel really great. The biggest difference? The largest organ of my body, the skin, has been so much happier. Lovely surprise.

    Yes, almond flour is ground up almonds which makes it almond meal.

    Is that my recipe you want, you were talking to beepbeep at first.

    Mini-timing make a delicious spritz cookie using almond flour. I think they are better than the original recipe which used regular flour. She also makes great biscuits using almond flour.

    beepbeep - I have not found a gluten free bread with rice flour as the first ingredient that I like.

    Here's the Almond Pound Cake Recipe:

    1/2 c butter
    1/2 c cream cheese (softened) [Sometimes I used reduced fat but it's better with full fat]
    3/4 c brown sugar substitute (I use this stuff called Whey Low Gold - made from milk and designed for baking)
    4 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 c almond flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp salt
    1/4 tsp ground ginger
    1/4 tsp ground cardamon (or another of ginger)
    1 tbsp honey roasted almond slices (optional)

    Preheat oven to 350F. Spray 9x5 inch loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray

    Beat butter, cream cheese, brown sugar substitute in large bowl with electric mixer until well blended

    Add eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Beat in vanilla.

    Combine almond flour with salt, baking powder, ginger & cardamom in medium bowl. Gradually add to egg mixture while beating on medium speed.

    Pour into prepared pan; sprinkle with honey-roasted almonds (if desired).

    Bake 45 to 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.

    Great thread!
    I would like to put a little plug in for my good friend, who has Celiac disease and who is always experimenting with the gluten-free kitchen.

    http://www.glutenfreewolf.com/

    Also, for anybody in Calgary and area, there's the Lakeview Bakey: this bakery makes a TON of GF stuff and also imports lots of the speciality items from the USA.

    All I can say is...being gluten free is TOUGH!!!

    Another good site is Amy Green's www.simplysugarandglutenfree.com. All of her recipes are gluten free and are made without processed sugar.
