Gluten Free Devil’s Food Cake – Egg & Dairy-Free Options

Gluten Free Devil's Food Cake

This gluten free devil’s food cake gets its dark color from the use of unsweetened cocoa powder and plenty of baking soda.

Gluten Free Hot Milk Cake + Strawberry Shortcake Topping (Dairy-Free or Not)

Gluten Free Hot Milk Cake

Hot milk cake has been an American favorite since its first publication dating back to 1955 in the Chicago Tribune by one of its editors. In this version, you’re provided a choice between dairy and dairy-free ingredients; both tested well and three size pans (9 x 9-inch, 9 x 13-inch, or two 8-inch round pans. The hot milk begins cooking the batter as soon as hot milk touches the batters, providing a head start in cooking and rising. Serve it dusted with confectioners’ sugar, like strawberry shortcake (recipe included), or your favorite icing. I think caramel or chocolate sauce would also be great choices, topped with a small dollop of whipped cream. The author served it with a mocha icing. I like it plain the best. It’s a sweet cake. What will you use? Check out its texture:
