Basic yellow cake

                    This has been adapted from the TACA website. I have used 1 cup GFCF flour, 1/2 tsp gelatin, 1/4 tsp baking powder, 1/4 tsp baking soda, 1/4 tsp salt, 2 large eggs, 1/4 th cup rice milk. I have cut  an organic vanilla stick into fine pieces , and blended them in  with rice milk. You also need 1 cup extra virgin olive oil. Mix together olive oil, eggs and sugar. In a separate bowl take the dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. To the flour mixture add the milk-vanilla mix and the egg mix in an alternating manner. Mix till combined and bake. The cake is nice and soft.
                     I also tried lemon curd and lychee sorbet.I have been thinking of a frosting for a long time and finally zeroed in on lemon curd. I tried it  with ghee but it  left such a strong flavor of ghee, that there were no takers for it. Later other “gfcf moms” suggested that I try substituting half the quantity of ghee with a milk substitute or add lemon zest. But the texture and feel of the curd was very good. As for the lychee sorbet it never took off only! It is still lying in my freezer in a semi liquid state.

I would be curious to know which ghee brand did you try.

We want to introduce ourselves to your readers. We make a truly delicious ghee from grass-fed cows, with care, in small batches. Our ghee is made with certified organic, 100% grass-fed milk from small family-operated farms in Northeastern USA. My family has been in the ghee business for 5 generations since 1889 in India and we are proud of our heritage.

Ghee cannot be made without milk.when you melt butter,and subsequently boil it, remove the brown sediments, because that would be the caesein residue.
As for rice milk and soy curd you will find receipes online. Try gfcf diet.com
