So I've been searching around for recipes that are corn free and decided to try this one:
Changes for myself:
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
Whole wheat pastry flour
1/3 cup of white sugar and 1 teaspoon of cinnamon.
I started to feel just awful right before add the wet ingredients to the dry ones and the family sent me to the room, turned the air conditioner on, and I had to recline here. So, Honorable Son #2 and a friend of his, along with Delicate Flower, finished preparing the cake. I was able to take it out of the oven, though.
Not as moist as I would like, so next time I will add a little more butter to the recipe and find some safe brown sugar for the topping. I don't know if I will dare use apples, since they are so full of pesticides and corn-based wax.
I don't react as terribly or violently to corn as some people I am acquainted with over the internet, but ingesting corn or corn-derived products make me ill. So, I'll have to think hard about the apples. Maybe a mango topping or fresh pineapple would be nice or better yet, pineapple upside-down cake!!!
