Without the use of artificial food coloring or flavoring, you can make this delicious gluten free pistachio cake with a nutty flavor without any taste of green tea. Fill and frost with all three fillings and toppings or just one. It’s your choice.
Want to impress your guests? Make this elegant 10-layer Gluten Free Smith Island Cake. The cake is amazing with its rich almost pound cake-like texture. The glaze is similar to chocolate caramel sauce. While I made the dairy-free version, you can make this cake low-dairy, full-dairy, or allergen-free/egg-free.
Popular first in the St. Louis area, and now around the country, the gluten free version of Ooey Gooey Butter Cake is now a thing. I never thought I would enjoy something so sweet, but I love it more than cookie dough! This dessert has a chewy crust at the bottom with chewy crisp edges that everyone will fight over. There is a thin crust on the top and the cream cheese filling is gooey, and a bit like cheesecake but a little softer and sweeter. It’s a rich dessert, but it’s so scrumptious, that it’s hard to stop at one piece.
I am just so excited about this cake! Prior to my retirement, I have several bucket list recipes to develop. This one I did, just for the challenging aspect alone. It’s not only a unique and stunning presentation but the cake and frosting are incredibly delicious. Though the cake is completely dairy free, (you may use dairy if you wish), it is rich and moist, which is unusual for a sponge cake. I won’t make sponge cake any other way from here on out. In addition, the recipe for the frosting, my favorite, Italian buttercream, is laid out to address anything that goes wrong (too thin or looks curdled). This is the perfect recipe to use for a roll cake or vertical layer cake.
The Lady Baltimore cake is well known In the Southern United States. The cake consists of a white three-layer cake or sponge cake, filled with buttercream and a nutty fruit filling. My gluten free Lady Baltimore Cake consists of white cake, a mixture of Italian buttercream and whipped cream, and a nutty fruit filing. The white cake is amazing! I give you a choice of buttermilk white cake or traditional. (The buttermilk is more flavorful, but heavier.) Enjoy!
Blackout cake, also called Brooklyn Blackout cake consists of chocolate cake topped, filled with chocolate pudding and topped with chocolate cake crumbs. My take on the cake is a little bit different in that this gluten free chocolate blackout cake is not topped with cake crumbs. Crumbs are only placed on the sides and the cake is topped a little chocolate ganache. Instead of vanilla pudding, this cake is filled with chocolate pastry cream. It’s divine, and perfect for Valentine’s Day with plenty of leftovers to consume or freeze.
Make this one-layer gluten free orange cake into two layers or keep it as is. Fill with homemade orange glaze and buttercream or just one. Frost or glaze the top and sides as well. Moist and D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S!
Beautiful, rich, and moist layers of chocolate-coffee sponge cake basted with cherry liqueur or cherry syrup, and frosted and layered with buttercream or vanilla/cherry whipped cream with more cherries between the layers. Chocolate confetti for garnish is optional.
Besides learning how to make this delicious cake, you also will learn what ingredients to use to avoid red-colored chocolate cakes (or which to use make them red). Then, cover it with this Chocolate Mirror Glaze. Don’t miss the section of converting vanilla cakes to chocolate, too. This is an excellent cake make in advance. When filled and frosted, it only gets better. Refrigerate up to 2-1/2 full days prior to serving in perfect condition and still store leftovers.
Besides learning how to make this delicious and moist gluten free chocolate sponge cake, you also learn how to convert vanilla cakes to chocolate. It’s all very easy to do. Layer it with a number of fillings like chocolate ganache, chocolate, vanilla, or even cherry liqueur whipped cream. Chocolate pastry cream is another choice along with cherry or strawberry pie filling. Make one simple change and you can make a Black Forest Cake! (Recipe coming soon.)
