Welcome and Gluten-Free Cinnamon Cake Bites

by Lauren | Celiac Teen on April 12, 2010

Ah!  You found me!  Welcome to the new site.  It’s the same Lauren, same url and different feed!  You can subscribe here and have lots of fun looking around and exploring the new site.  It’s new so I hope there aren’t any (or many!) kinks, but if you find any, just let me know!  I’m sure it will continue to evolve and grow as I do.

Syrup and Bites

I’ll still be writing and baking and posting, just this more fantastic space!  Anyways, I wouldn’t tell you about the excitement of that without something good to eat!  These are little cake bites.  Or maybe muffin bites.  Either way, the cinnamon flavour warms your heart with each and every morsel you take.  They are comforting and halfway between a muffin and a cake.  Not as healthy as a muffin, but definitely as light as a cake so I’ll let you decide that one!

There isn’t really a big story to these, they are just delicious.  Simple and wonderful.  The perfect bribe to subscribe.  (I would never ask typically, but if there were no more new updates it would be sad!).

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Cake Bites
An original recipe by Lauren of Celiac Teen.
1/2 cup millet flour
1/3 cup tapioca starch/flour
1/3 cup sorghum flour
1/3 cup sweet rice flour
1 tsp xanthan gum
3 tbsp sugar
4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
3 tbsp maple syrup
1/2 cup butter, melted and cooled

Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray mini muffin tins with cooking spray.

In a large bowl, whisk together dry ingredients.  In a small bowl, whisk together eggs, milk, maple syrup and butter.

Pour liquid into dry ingredients and stir until almost all lumps disappear.  Fill mini muffin tins 2/3 full (about one spoonful).  Bake for 15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the centre comes out clean.

All lined up like ducks in a row.  Except these are ready to be devoured.


The careful cracks in these bites are merely a design feature.  They just add to the aesthetic appeal.  No density or general badness from them, just a cinnamon burst of cake.
Sometimes though, you have to live on the edge.  The maple-syrup dunking edge.  This cake has an element of coffeecake, so that is completely acceptable.  If not encouraged.


Ahh, yes.  It’s truly the perfect two-bite snack.  Possibly a bit on the sweet side for breakfast, but other than that, it’s an anytime treat.  It’s a light and lovely bite.

So yes, Hello WordPress (thanks to the fantastic Barbara of Vino Luci!).  What better way to transition than with a simple little bite.  It’s a transition between a muffin and a cake, with a size that makes them easy to eat just the amount you want!  I hope that you enjoy these as well as the new site =D.
