Double-Frosted Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake Recipe

Double-Frosted Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake

This gluten free red velvet cake recipe is moist and luscious. Red Velvet is known for its richness. While not everyone has the time to make a three-layer, double-frosted cake, when you wish to impress guests, this is the cake to make. When time is short, make a single frosted cake and/or make a naked cake (no frosting on the sides). The cake, as well as frosting recipes, were raved about by my cookbook recipe testers. If you usually use ready-made frosting, you may never again.

Note: Also find this gluten-free recipe in my upcoming cookbook Carla’s Best 125 Gluten-Free Recipes. Continue reading “Double-Frosted Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake Recipe”

Gluten Free Red Velvet Pancakes

Gluten Free Red Velvet Pancakes

I’ve been contemplating what new gluten free Valentines’ Day recipes to post in the coming days. I wanted to make some gluten free red velvet pancakes using buttermilk, but since I didn’t have any, I needed a substitute. You know how you can make homemade buttermilk by adding a tablespoon of apple cider vinegar (or white) to 1 cup of regular milk? Well, I decided to use some heavy whipping cream instead. The results? Absolutely amazing pancakes!

In essence, I made creme fraiche (soured cream), similar to buttermilk, but using cream.

Vinegar is always added to red velvet pancakes and baked goods because it masks the bitter flavor of artificial food coloring. No bitter taste, here! You could taste a slight hint of chocolate, and the rest just rich, moist, and a little sweet.

These pancakes were like eating a dessert, and not a gluten free one, either. You have to try these at least once. I towered the one in the photo below for a young boy, “Red Volcano Pancakes”. Enjoy! Continue reading “Gluten Free Red Velvet Pancakes”
