Easy Gluten Free Snowball Cake (Naturally Colored or Leave White)

Gluten Free Snowball Cake

Remember those pink Hostess Snoballs? They were made of chocolate cake with a creamy and spongy marshmallow filling. That same spongey white filling was on the outside as well. Then, the entire thing was covered in pink coconut. This gluten free snowball cake is made the same but with natural food coloring. You don’t need a special pan to make this delicious cake, just two round cake pans, and a large bowl.

Gluten Free Buffalo Cornbread or Muffins

Gluten Free Buffalo Cornbread

When the craving for buffalo wings strikes and you have no chicken wings on hand, make this amazing gluten free buffalo cornbread instead. Its cake-like texture makes it a great snack or dessert as well as a side dish with your main meal. I’m thinking of serving them with chili, chicken, pork chops, and more. No mixer needed. Enjoy! We are absolutely addicted to these! (And I’m not usually a big cornbread fan.)

Gluten Free Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake (1 or 2-Layer)

Gluten Free Chocolate Mayonnaise Cake

Out of eggs? You can still make this delicious gluten free mayonnaise cake because mayonnaise contains eggs! No additional eggs are needed. Mayonnaise makes moister cakes. Just be sure to use a recipe like this one that has strong flavors like chocolate, cinnamon, lemon, etc. They mask the lemon or vinegar in the mayonnaise. Meanwhile, you can use a 9 x 9 or 9 x 13-inch dish to make this cake. So good!

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

Gluten Free Gooey Butter Cake

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

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.

Gluten Free Lady Baltimore Cake

Gluten Free Lady Baltimore 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

Gluten Free Blackout Cake

Blackout cake, also called Brooklyn Blackout cake, consists of chocolate cake, 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. Instead, crumbs are only placed on the sides and the cake is topped with 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.
