I love it when hubby bakes a cake and I just get to eat it! Does anyone know of a healthy sugar substitute for baking? Sugar still makes me sick. So I only got to enjoy a tiny bit of awesomeness. But before I show you the cake- check out this cute dress from Maurices!
Okay! So now on to the cake: We made a lemon cake. We almost ALWAYS bake gluten and dairy free. And sometimes sugar free if we can get away with it.
This recipe comes from the website Living Without. Living Without has been an incredible resource for the hubby and I in our adventures of gluten and dairy free baking. Gluten free means no wheat. We replace wheat flour with other flours such as rice, sorghum, and tapioca. Whole grain wheat is normally a very natural, healthy source for grains. We only substitute wheat with other grains because Jeddie and I don't digest the proteins in wheat very well. We avoid dairy for the same reasons.
When you avoid dairy and gluten, it does make it feel like you're deprived of a variety of mainstream packaged foods! So we quiet those feelings with yummy cakes, muffins, waffles, and even fried chicken- all made with flours other than wheat.

I would like to think that I made this beautiful cake. But the hubby normally bakes. And I just eat it. Who bakes more in your home?
