her daughter has many food issues and her only safe foods were sugar, strawberries and pork-

  DD had just turned 7 when we started to trial sorghum, and she desperately wanted a cupcake to take to a birthday party.


They are loosely based on Wacky Cake. (My revisions in blue)


 1 1/2  cup  flour   sorghum flour
1  cup  sugar
1  tsp  baking soda
1/2  tsp  salt
1  Tbsp  vinegar   sugarcane vinegar
5  Tbsp  oil          melted lard
1  tsp  vanilla     homemade strawberry extract (strawberries steeped in white rum, or can use plain rum)
1  cup  water    1/2 c. room temp strawberry puree + 1 packet gelatin, plus 1/2 cup other liquid - either more puree brought to a boil or boiling water to dissolve gelatin.


You do need to let them cool before handling -- they are VERY tender when hot and you need to let the gelatin -- gel LOL -- to keep structure.

Meg can post more detail but her daughter has many food issues and her only safe foods were sugar, strawberries and pork--but in case you were worried about nutrition, her daughter is tube-fed formula.  If I recall correctly they were doing these cupcakes to trial sorghum to see if her daughter could eat it safely.


Odd, I know, but it's AMAZING the things Meg has done with three foods.
