Gluten Free Gooey Butter Cake (St. Louis Homemade-Style)

Gluten Free Gooey Butter Cake

Last Updated on

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.

Gluten Free Vertical Layer Cake – Coffee + Other Flavors

Gluten Free Vertical Layer Cake

Last Updated on

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!

Gluten Free Blackout Cake aka Brooklyn Blackout Cake

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.
