Why Gluten Free Bakes have become popular?

The gluten-free food market has boomed in the past couple of years. The rise of people with gluten intolerance have increased tremendously.

Gluten is a protein that is found in wheat, barley, rye, and sometimes oats. People with celiac disease, gluten intolerance, or the much less-common skin condition, dermatitis herpetiformis, can have very adverse reactions if they eat it.

With celiac disease, the body’s immune system reacts to consuming gluten by damaging the lining of the small intestine, which interferes with the body’s ability to absorb nutrients.

Gluten intolerant or sensitive people experience negative reactions to gluten, but do not actually have celiac disease. 

However, allergies and intolerances are becoming increasingly common these days.

As a result, this has also given rise to a lot of healthy bakers who supply home baked gluten free bakes which are any day better than the ones available on a supermarket shelf.

Does Gluten Free Mean Healthy?

Does going gluten-free lead to better health, or just another example of a fad diet? The answer depends on if you need to avoid gluten.

Gluten is a type of protein found in wheat, rye and barley. Most of us can eat these grains without ill effects. However, a few can’t, because they have a wheat allergy, celiac disease or non-celiac gluten sensitivity.

If you don’t fall into one of these groups, there’s no evidence that you should avoid gluten. The words “gluten free” on a food package don’t translate to “healthy.”

Packaged gluten-free foods can be highly processed and full of sugar, fat and other less-healthful ingredients. Most are not enriched with vitamins and minerals.

“You can, you should and if you are brave enough to start, you will!” – Stephen King.

This is my first ever guest post to a blog and yes I finally decided to write one. Donna, you have been so generous with this offer. Thank you and its been a privilege to bake something exclusively for The Culinary Trail.

I have been on an experimentation spree with baking using variety of ingredients and flours. Its been a very interesting journey so far and the credit goes to the healthy baking community, OMBC that I am part of, for all the motivation.

Presenting to you, Gluten Free Brown Rice Chocolate Cake to cater to your evening hunger cravings.

This bake is gluten-free and is baked with brown rice flour, sweet potato flour, dessicated coconut and one slice is quite fulfilling.

This is an egg based recipe. I have used melted dark chocolate, dark raisins and chopped walnuts along with chocolate chips to make it rich and complete.

I am a decadent fan of dark chocolates and many of my bakes project its addition. I can sinfully say, ” Dark chocolates completes my bake!”

Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did. Enjoy!

Instructions
  1. Sieve together rice flour, potato flour, baking powder, baking soda, ground cinnamon and cardamom, and salt together at least 5 to 6 times.
  2. Add desiccated coconut to the sieved mixture, whisk well and keep aside.
  3. Preheat the oven at 170 degrees Celsius for 10 minutes. Grease a loaf tin and line it with parchment paper to prevent the cake from sticking to the tin.
  4. Take chocolate pieces in an oven safe bowl, add butter to it and keep the bowl in the oven while it is being preheated. This is to melt the chocolate and butter.
  5. Remove the bowl and stir the melted mixture into a smooth chocolate sauce. Keep it to cool slightly.We need to use it when it is still warm.
  6. Beat the eggs along with vanilla extract at high speed for about 10 minutes until the volume doubles and the texture is creamy (I have used an electric beater for mixing the batter).
  7. Add cane sugar and beat for another 5 minutes. Add the warm chocolate butter mixture and beat on low speed until well combined.
  8. Now add the sieved flour mixture and hot water (or warm milk) in batches and whisk after each batch. This is to ensure everything blends well and we don't have a lumpy batter.
  9. *(When I say batches it means, you start with the flour mixture, add some hot water, whisk, then add second batch, water and end with flour mixture)*
  10. Once the batter is prepared, add 1 tablespoon of lemon juice or apple cider vinegar and gently mix (Lemon juice or vinegar acts with baking soda to give the cake a good rise).
  11. Finally fold in chopped walnuts, raisins and chocolate chips gently.
  12. Pour the prepared batter into the loaf tin and gently tap the tin against the kitchen counter a couple of times to clear air bubbles and for the batter to spread evenly.
  13. Bake at 170 degrees Celsius for 25 to 30 minutes or until the toothpick inserted at the center comes out clean or with crumbs.
  14. Turn off the oven and let the cake cool in the oven itself for about 10 minutes.
  15. Now remove the loaf tin and let the cake cool over a wire rack completely before slicing.
  16. You can enjoy the warm slices as it is with your tea or have it with dark chocolate ganache and a scoop of ice-cream as a dessert.
