I wonder if it is the proteins in the wheat type? Seem to think I may have read it somewhere, but for the life of me can't think where roll_eyes

 I used to make what was called a Friendship Cake years ago, where you kept a batch of starter going and kept giving some away to friends.


 

Was that known as 'Amish' Friendship cake, Ruthie?

 Ah, ah , ah, spelt and rye are both supposed to have gluten in them¦¦cry

Absolutely true, but I'm wondering if combining one or the other with the sourdough idea might be more suitable than wheat sourdough? Working on the principle that wheat is the big baddie and some people say they are ok with other, less glutinous grains and the sourdough changes the gluten somehow as well.

Oats are the other thing I missed terribly, and I've gotten better enough to eat them again lately. I do buy a brand that doesn't use the same mill as for wheat. Never been brave enough to try spelt but small amounts of rye are ok-ish.
I had a bloodtest, it showed nothing but I'd been gluten free for three years by then anyway. I self diagnosed because I got to the point where absolutely everything made me feel ill. GP wasn't at all interested - oh, back to the rant and rave thread, whoops!
Anyway, what was the topic? oh yes, recipe websites! Does this count? I found what looks like the Friendship Cake recipe that I remember here. Now, I'm thinking why not use the sourdough starter to make the cake as well? What do you folks reckon?

I found this site fascinating and I'm sure it will come in useful. Its called Cook's Thesaurus.

My laptop is having a hissy fit so I can't see the pictures.  It's been very slow today - I wonder if it's the weather?

I'll try that again!

Scroll down on this page, and find another carrot cake recipe - looks really good! (Spot many others when scrolling) .....  yum.
