One of my Facebook friends asked me if I had a gluten free funnel cake recipe. I didn’t, but it intrigued me, as I had never made one, or tasted one before. I headed on over to one of my favorite chef’s, Alton Brown, to see how he made them. You can watch his¬†Funnel Cake¬†video. Either click on the photo with the arrow or the Video tab above the recipe.¬†Funnel cakes are usually served at fairs, carnivals and street vendors. If you’re missing them now that you’re gluten free, try making this recipe at home. I must say, they are very addicting! Continue reading “Gluten Free Funnel Cake”

Gluten Free Pound Cake

One of my Facebook friends requested a recipe for a gluten free pound cake. This recipe is my first attempt. I love pound cake and have not made one or tasted one in years. It rose perfectly. It turned out just a tad grainy (not as bad once it cools) because I had added 1/4 cup brown rice flour. Rice flour tends to be grainy. I have substituted the brown rice flour for additional tapioca flour in the recipe below. That should make it nice and starchy like a good pound cake (UPDATE: See feedback from a reader below.) I suggest to use regular white sugar instead of the organic evaporated sugar. It gives it a different taste. At 1 hour the cake was not done baking. I left it in for 10 minutes longer, but that was too long. Time got away from me. I suggested 1 hour to 1 hour 5 minutes total. At 1 hour and 10 minutes, it did not make the cake dry, but the outside was a little harder than I wanted. I fixed that by wrapping it in foil where the steam softened it right up. Not bad for attempt number one. My suggested changes are below. I was trying to go a little healthier, but it did not work as planned. This is a heavy pound cake, but oh so delicious! Enjoy. One reader surely did – “better than Starbuck’s!” Continue reading “Gluten Free Pound Cake”
