Corn-free Girls Can Cook, Too

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.

It's good.

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!!!

thumbs up YES!!! thumbs up

Pineapple, cinnamon, and honey, with some oats or a little flour mixed in- would be a pretty yummy topping!

And I'm glad you don't react as strongly- it is hard! I think that using something instead of apples is a fantastic thing to do- may as well be safe!

This cannot be an easy thing to live with! What a challenge! Good for you that you're meeting it with determination. God bless! :)

Little Wren, not easy at all, but I'm learning!

Still cannot post comments on your site. Maybe if you change the settings for comments...

Nikki, I've never eaten pineapple with cinnamon... I might try it, though. :)
