Okay, I hate to brag....but...I made the BEST white cake in the world for my sons birthday!!! I took a recipe that I have made that was okay, and tweeked it and everyone kept asking, "Is this really gluten free?" My husband kept saying, "What happened? This is great!" I just love it when that happens!!! So here goes!! The worlds best Gluten Free White cake! (okay, maybe just the best in MY world!!)
Geri's Best Little White Cake Ever (you have to know Richard Scarry to appreciate that!)
Preheat oven to 350
1 C sugar
1 cube of butter, softened - cream together and add
cream together for about 2 minutes (important!!) then add:
1 C sour cream
1 tsp pure almond extract and mix thoroughly
Add: 2 C GF Baking flour mix (you have to use the mixture with the ASIAN white rice flour or it doesn't work!!)
1/2 tsp xantan gum
1 tsp bkg powder
1 tsp bkg soda
1/4 tsp salt
mix everything together, scaping bowl often. Then while it is mixing slowly add 1/2 C boiling water and continue mixing for about 1 min. *To make a thinner cake in a larger pan, don't add boiling water.
Mix on high for 2 minutes.
Spray a 9x13 pan and pour batter evenly into pan. Bake 25-30 min. (if your oven cooks hot check after 20 but make sure it is completely done on the inside!! Better a little more done than underdone)
I make my own frosting from just butter, milk, and powdered sugar!! I just throw it all in and mix so I'm not really good for a recipe on that one!! Frost with whatever you like!! Oh so yummy!! ENJOY!!
** I like this recipe for a raspberry (or whatever fruit) cream cheese cake. I make it in a larger pan with sides and so it is a little thinner. I mix a brick of cream cheese, a cup of powdered sugar and a carton of whipping cream (already mixed up) and that is the frosting. Then I put raspberries in syrup plus fresh raspberries on top. YUM!
