Take note: Although coconut is considered a "tree nut" by the Food and Drug Administration, studies have shown that coconut is not related to "tree nut allergy". Although it is possible to be allergic to coconut, most patients with tree nut allergy will not need to avoid coconut. Please consult with your allergist for recommendations based on your needs.

If coconut is safe, there is coconut aminos. Otherwise, I've had good success using umeboshi vinegar. It doesn't have the same depth of flavor (or color - it's purple which can be an odd color in some things), but give that salty "bite" to things. Another options is balsamic vinegar plus salt. That's a little sweeter though. If you can do fish, nuc mam (Vietnamese fish sauce) is another option.

I do have a heating core, but I've found that allergen friendly cakes don't always bake well in larger sizes. This is especially true of egg free cakes since they lack key structure. If you can get it baked through, the chance of cracking or crumbling while handling it is pretty high. I've found that Wacky Cake doesn't do well in anything bigger than 9x13 - it takes so long for the center to heat up that the single acting leavening just fizzles out. Gluten/wheat free cakes are very difficult...

Great post. I have a question about baking larger sheet cakes. Do you use a metal core (I can't remember if that is the "real" name for that, or not) when you bake them? I usually make a half sheet for birtday parties and find it is difficult to get the center done without over cooking the side.

Re: Non-Cupcake Classroom Birthday Celebration Idea

Bustermonkey ·
That is a cute idea. However, please remember anytime we offer food to our child's classmates we risk allergies. My youngest daughters is allergic to Yellow 5 (which is found in almost all applesauce brands - except the all natural). If she were to eat this snack, she would have a very severe rash for the remainder of the day. Most of us send snacks that avoid peanuts, tree nuts, eggs, milk, wheat. But, allergies come in many different forms. For classroom birthdays, I always avoid food.

Re: Non-Cupcake Classroom Birthday Celebration Idea

Hi Bustermonkey, you make a good point. There are also children who are allergic to apples, so even the natural applesauces would be an issue. I think the thing to consider, whatever the occasion, is who is the audience, and what are the specific allergies people are dealing with. With obesity and allergies such a concern across America, I applaud using fruit as a treat, but only if it is safe for the intended audience. Non-food treats are also a great choice.

Re: Super Sun-Dried Tomatoes! 3 Allergy-Friendly Recipes

What brand of jarred sun dried tomatoes are nut free? It seems many have been processed with pine nuts or other nuts. Thanks!

I have ones that are just dried tomatoes "Bella Sun Luc"i- Nut free sun dried tomatoes were really hard to find, no matter the form. I found that one brand, but never called to confirm if they are around nuts. there are no warnings on the package, and as it turns out, my child ended up being allergic to the tomatoes. I assume the dried one not in oil may need some oil added in to compensate, or be heated with water, I can't remember if the dried ones are dehydrated or slightly plump. HTH

Re: Steamed Rice Flour Cake Made with Few Ingredients

MAM-mom ·
I don't know that it would work. Rice flour is super-fine ground rice--think of rice that has gone through a grinder--and it has the properties of rice, so it will absorb water like rice does when you cook it. Potato flour is form potatoes that have been dried and I don't know that they would re-hydrate the same way. BUT potato flour isn't so terribly expensive and I would encourage you to try it. Assume it will flop and if it doesn't you will be pleasantly surprised. Also keep in mind that...

Re: Steamed Rice Flour Cake Made with Few Ingredients

I think you will wind up w/ a big lump of glue if you try using potato flour. I'm assuming you really mean potato flour and not potato starch (which I don't think would work either). Potato flour is more like dehydrated potatoes and is really, really gummy (I clogged all the pipes in my sink when I dumped some down the drain while running hot water!) Do you have any other flours to work with??
