Best gluten-free yellow cake mix?
- The Librarian Nov 9, 2011 12:17 PM
I want to make a GF rum-glazed bundt cake for Thanksgiving, but am having trouble finding a GF yellow cake mix. Are there any out there that are good? If not, can you recommend a great recipe for a GF version of the cake? Or am I making my life unnecesarily complicated???? Thanks!
i know somebody that recommended Barry Farms, but cannot myself confirm.
my version i continue to toy with...
2 tsp tapioca starch
1 cup water
Put these over heat, stirring to dissolve starch, then cook until translucent.
1 1/2 cups white rice flour
1/2 cup tapioca flour
1/4 cup potato starch
1 tsp salt
3/4 - 1 tsp baking soda
2 1/2 - 3 tsp baking powder
1 1/4 cups white sugar
Mix in a mixer til blended.
1/8 cup sour cream
1 cup milk
2 tsp - 1 tbsp vanilla
1/2 cup butter, melted
Add the melted butter and a spoonful of the other wet ingredients to the dry and mix til coarse crumbs. Add in rest of wet ingredients, in 2-3 go's, scraping down the bowl as necessary.
Pour into 2 8 or 9 inch cake pans and bake at 350 til golden but not brown.
Note: sometimes i do 6 tbsp of butter (sometimes browned, but not for a traditional yellow cake, though i think it would pair nicely with the rum glaze) and 2- 2 1/2 tbsp cream cheese instead of just 8 tbsp of butter.
Bringing it to the top. I too am looking for a good GF yellow cake mix to make a dessert for a friend.
Bob's Red Mill sells a GF cake mix. We haven't tried it-I have one sitting in my cupboard, though-but reviews on Amazon are great.
