I became interested in gluten free cooking when two friends opted to remove this item from their diets, one in an attempt to manage weight and the other in hopes of reducing her rosacea. Of course, persons with Celiac disease have the strongest need for safe food sources. The cake recipes on this lens are considered suitable for Celiacs as well.

Gluten Free Cooking and You
Why do gluten free cakes interest you?
Shop Amazon for Xanthan Gum
Xanthan Gum is used in gluten-free baking because it helps the dough or batter to rise and also helps prevent the dough from being too tough. You must mix it with your dry ingredients, as it does not mix with water.
Recipe for Ivory Silk Layer Cake
makes two 9 inch layers
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sugar (first amount)
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 tablespoon gluten-free mayonnaise
- 3/4 cup of rice flour
- 1/4 cup potato starch flour
- 1/2 cup tapioca flour
- 1/4 cup cornstarch minus 1 1/2 teaspoons
- 1 1/2 teaspoons xanthan gum
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1 tablespoon sugar (second amount)
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
Prepare two nine inch round cake pans by oiling or by lining with parchment paper. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit or equivalent in Celsius.
Using a mixer, beat the eggs until they are lemony and thickened. Slowly add the first amount of sugar, beating all the while.
Mix the dry ingredients together in a separate bowl.
Alternating, add the dry ingredients and the cream to the egg-sugar mixture.
Place your batter equally into the two prepared pans and place in the heated oven.
These cakes usually bake in about twenty-five minutes. Before your cake is finished, mix together the cinnamon and the remaining one tablespoon of sugar. Five minutes before you consider your cake will be done baking, sprinkle this mixture over ONE cake. Leave the other plain.
When your layers are baked, remove them from the oven and set aside for five minutes. At that point, remove them from the pans and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
To fill, make one recipe of Chocolate Filling, as described below. Spread the Chocolate Filling over the plain layer. Place the sugared layer on top.
- 6 tablespoons of room temperature butter
- 1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 3/4 cup sifted confectioner's sugar or icing sugar or other powdered sugar
- 1/3 cup milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Cream the butter well. Mix the cocoa and sugar together and add to the creamed butter, alternating the milk. When all is added, add the vanilla and beat until your filling is fluffy and will spread easily.
