I love cake, don't you? I mean, really, what's not to love about it? Light and fluffy, moist and delicious, cake is really the one dessert that seems to always bring everyone together and an amazing meal to an end. Think about it, cake may be the one dessert we enjoy in life most often.
Now, imagine a cake that was moist, firm, and with a sponge-like texture, packed full of tons of mouth watering flavor, and, as if that wasn't enough, was completely gluten-free. Yes, you heard me right, gluten-free! Impossible, you say? Trust me, we've got just a cake.
While most gluten-free cakes, cookies, and desserts are typically dry, brittle, and seem to fall apart with the slightest touch, this cake is soft, moist, and simply melts in your mouth with every bite. Yes, thanks to our Grandpa's Kitchen Gluten-Free Flour Blend, you can have your gluten-free cake and eat it too! Say hello to our Gluten-Free Custard Cake!
4 Eggs, separated
1 Tbsp Lemon Juice
3/4 cup Sugar
1 Tbsp Vanilla
1/2 cup Butter, melted
2 cups Warm Milk
3/4 cup Grandpa's Kitchen Gluten-Free Flour Blend
2 Tbsp Ultra Gel
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In a large bowl combine egg whites, lemon juice, and a 1/2 cup sugar, and beat together with an electric hand mixer until high, glossy peaks form, then set aside.
In a separate bowl, combine egg yolks, 1/4 cup sugar, and vanilla, and beat with electric hand mixer until ingredients are combined and pale. Add melted butter, flour, ultra gel, and warm milk, and beat until combined.
Next, add your egg whites to mixture and mix with a large spoon, just until the white coloring isn't visible.
Pour your batter into your lightly greased USA Pan Square Cake Pan (8x8).
Place in oven and bake at 325 degrees for 50 minutes. Remove and let cool in pan for 15 minutes. Just before serving, dust tops with powdered sugar, slice, and serve.
Rich, moist, and with an amazing, spongy texture, this cake is everything you love in custard without all the gluten. The flavor is amazing and will leave you craving another slice, while the texture itself will leave your tongue smacking for more. This is the cake recipe you don't want to pass up.
It's cake time, and thanks to this amazing recipe, you can get it completely gluten-free.
