Sarah’s Gluten Free Carrot Cake

Posted by on 11:23 am in Eat | 0 comments

Sarah’s Gluten Free Carrot Cake

Gluten Free Carrot Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. 


• 2 cups sugar

• 4 eggs

• 1 1/2 cups canola oil

• 2 cups all-purpose gluten-free flour mix*

• 2 teaspoons baking soda

• 2 teaspoons baking powder

• 2 teaspoons cinnamon

• 1 teaspoon salt

• 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

• 1 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

• 3 cups freshly grated carrots (about 5 carrots)

• one stick unsalted butter

• 8 ounces cream cheese

• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

• 4-5 cups powdered sugar


 Preheat oven to 350° F

 Use two round 9-inch cake pans, one 9×13 pan or 36 muffin cups for this recipe. If using round cake pans, lightly grease and place a circle of parchment in the bottom of the pan for easy removal. Use paper liner cups if making cupcakes.

Cream sugar and eggs in a large mixing bowl with an electric beater or stand mixer. Add oil and vanilla and beat just until smooth.

In a separate bowl combine gluten-free flour mix, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Whisk to combine. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and beat until blended.

Stir in grated carrots and nuts. Pour the batter into prepared pans.

Bake in preheated oven for 45-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean. For muffins, reduce baking time to 30-35 minutes or until they pass the toothpick test. Cool on a wire rack.

While cake or muffins are cooling place butter, cream cheese and vanilla in a large mixing bowl and beat on high until smooth. Add powdered sugar and beat until smooth and creamy.

When cake is cool frost and serve.    

*add 1 teaspoon xanthan gum to the recipe if the gluten free mix you are using does not contain it.



In the sweetness of friendship let there be laughter, and sharing of pleasures. For in the dew of little things the heart finds its morning and is refreshed.

Rick Phillip’s Gluten Free Chocolate Pecan Pie

Posted by on 4:07 pm in Eat | 0 comments

Rick Phillip’s Gluten Free Chocolate Pecan Pie

Gluten Free Chocolate Pecan Pie:

1 deep dish gluten free pie crust (9″)

2 Tablespoons Butter

(Unsalted, Horizon, Melissa’s, or other organic-GMO butter)

1 teaspoon Vanilla

3 Eggs (large, cage free, white or brown or blue)

1 Cup Karo light corn syrup

1/2 to 3/4 Cane Sugar

Salt (a pinch of sea salt will be fine.)

1-1/2 Cups Pecans

Halves are the ideal but pieces are okay. Buy local and avoid the little plastic packages because we want fresher, juicer pecans.

1/2 cup Chocolate

(Hershey’s morsels, Ghiradelli unsweetened, or ideally Scharffen Berger unsweetened)

1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Melt butter in a saucepan. Not a microwave but use a stove. Stir slowly.

3. Stir in chocolate. Melt slowly. Stir with a wooden spoon.

4. Crack the three eggs into a bowl. Stir/ beat with a knife or fork.

5. In a bowl, pour in the sugar, Karo syrup, and vanilla extract. Empty the saucepan of butter and chocolate into the bowl. Stir all of this with a wooden spoon. Mix thoroughly.

6. Add the pecans to the above bowl. Stir gently with a wooden spoon.

7. Pour into the pie crust.

Place in the center of your oven. Cook for 60 minutes.

When the pie rises into a dome and starts to brown, insert a toothpick or a knife into the center of the pie. If it comes out clean then the pie is done.

(If your oven runs hot then put strips of foil over the crust for the first 45 minutes. If you have an older gas oven, look in the oven at the 30 minute mark and if one side is cooking faster then rotate the pie.)

Remove pie and place on a cooling rack.

Place in a ziplock bag and store in the refrigerator for a day or two. Otherwise, freeze it.


(1) If you make more than one pie, please mix the ingredients one pie at a time. If you double the recipe and mix everything in a bowl then divide into two pie pans, the pies will not come out correctly. It’s about chemistry. I usually mix ingredients for a few pies, one pie at a time and keep them in separate bowls on the kitchen counter or in the refrigerator then pour the batter into a shell just before baking. I usually bake one pie at a time.
