I have tried making a number of different recipes to find a good Gluten Free Vanilla Birthday Cake. Finally, I think I have found a great tasting recipe that can be modified with any flavoring you like. I used almond for this cake and it was delicious.
- 1 1/2 cups brown rice flour
- 2/3 cup potato starch
- 1/3 cup tapioca starch
- 1/2 tsp sea salt
- 1 tbsp baking powder
- 5 tsp Pixie Dust
- 4 organic eggs
- 2 cups Wholesome Sweeteners Organic Sugar
- 1 cup buttermilk (I used organic almond milk with 1 tbsp vinegar)
- 1 cup organic butter, melted and cooled
- 1 teaspoon Simply Organic Vanilla Extract
- 1 teaspoon Simply Organic Almond Extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Grease (2) 8″ round cake pans with butter and line the bottom of each pan with a greased parchment circle.
Stir together the dry ingredients and set aside.
Beat the eggs and the sugar together until creamy. Add half of the dry ingredients and beat again.
Add the buttermilk, butter, vanilla and almond extracts and beat to combine. Add the remaining dry ingredients and beat just until combined.
Divide the batter between the greased cake pans.
Bake in the center of the oven for 35-40 minutes, until the cake is very lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Remove and let cool at least 30 minutes, before inverting onto a wire rack to finish cooling. Frost as desired. Enjoy!
