gluten free basic white cake that is to die for!
I have had several requests for a delicious gluten free white cake and I finally have one that I'm excited to share with you! The other evening my sister in law, who is the gf baker extraordinaire in the family, brought over these amazing cupcakes. She's always playing with recipes, adding and changing them until she achieves the desired results. These cupcakes are so delicious that I had to question her to make sure they were gluten free. They're light, spongy, and everything you'd want in a cupcake.
Gluten Free Basic White Cake
2 1/2 c thai rice flour
1/2 t salt
1 T baking powder
1 t xanthan gum
Whisk all four above ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a separate bowl whisk together:
1 c milk
1 t vanilla
1 c vegetable oil
Next, beat together in the bowl of your electric mixer for one minute:
2 c sugar
4 large eggs
Then add the flour mixture and milk mixture alternately, blending until thoroughly combined.
Pour batter into cupcake pans lined with cupcake papers. Fill to half way.
Bake for 20-22 minutes at 350 degrees. If using a coated pan lower your baking temp. to 325 degrees.
If using 2- 8" pans, bake for 40 minutes.
Any frosting will work but I used the easy combination of:
1/2 c butter
1 1/2 c powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla
and blend with your mixer
I really think this is the best recipe for gluten free white cake that I've found! Enjoy!
