Gluten-Free Apple Cake Conversion Requested
Posted 22 December 2012 - 08:16 AM
I'm trying to make sure I make a gluten free version of the following recipe correctly:
Would someone help me figure out what I have to substitute to make Teddie's apple cake gluten free?
I don't cook much but plan to start--as of this holiday season.

My 2nd tip would be to make just 1/2 or 1/3 of the recipe as a test, since 3 cups of flour and 2 cups of sugar is a lot for a cake. It would not be good to be disappointed with it. I know carrot cakes usually use a lot of oil, so scouting out a gluten-free carrot cake recipe might give you some clues on the right proportions. I would suspect you'd want to reduce the oil some for using gluten-free flours with this recipe.
Lastly, I posted a recipe for applesauce cake a little while back you might want to try:

Once you stir the flour/ salt/cinnamon/soda into the batter, look at it. Simplistically-speaking, it should be the consistency of any other cake batter. If it looks a bit too stiff, add 2-4 tablespoons milk/water to loosen it up. It has enough eggs, so you shouldn't need to add any more.
It looks like a good recipe...
