    Sweet Potato Bundt Cake (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    This recipe calls for my Nearly Normal All Purpose Flour™.  You can find the recipe for this flour in mycookbook, Nearly Normal Cooking for Gluten-Free Eating or in various media links on my website, or you can also this truly all purpose flourready-made at my site. It produces amazing results in all your gluten-free baking.

    Sweet Potato Bundt Cake


    The leaves are nearly gone, but sweet potatoes and pumpkins are still calling to me from my kitchen!  I decided to experiment with sweet potato cake – something I haven’t tried yet (I love challenges!). This one is light, mild and oh so yummy! I offer two possible glazes, but it’s nice on its own too. Enjoy!

    Ingredients:
    2 ¼ cup Nearly Normal All Purpose Flour™
    1 tablespoon gluten-free baking powder
    ½ teaspoon guar gum (optional)
    1 cup granulated sugar
    ¼ cup brown sugar
    1 package gluten-free vanilla instant pudding dry mix (3.4 oz)
    Dash of salt
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    ½ teaspoon nutmeg
    1 teaspoon cardamom (or 2 ½ teaspoons pumpkin pie spice in lieu of the 3 separate spices)
    2 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla extract
    ¼ cup vanilla yogurt (soy or dairy)
    4 eggs or egg replacer equivalent
    ½ softened butter or Earth Balance Buttery Sticks (vegan alternative)
    2 tablespoons ground flax seeds or flax seed meal
    ¼ cup boiling water
    1 large cooked, peeled and mashed sweet potato (approx. 1 cup)

    Directions:
    Preheat oven to 325 F static or convection setting.

    Boil ¼ cup of water and add flax seed meal. Stir and set aside. Cook, peel and mash the sweet potato and set aside.

    In a large mixing bowl, stir the eggs or egg replacer until well mixed. To the eggs, add all dry ingredients, yogurt, vanilla and softened butter or Buttery Sticks. Mix well then stir in the slightly cooled flax seed meal and the mashed sweet potato last.

    Butter or oil a bundt pan and dust with Nearly Normal All Purpose Flour™ or corn starch. Pour the well-mixed batter into the pan and smooth out the top with a rubber spatula. Bake in preheated static oven for approximately 50 minutes or convection oven for approximately 35 minutes. The cake is done when a cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean. Let the cake sit in the pan until slightly cooled, then invert onto a serving plate.

    Glazes:

    Lemon Glaze:
    1 cup sifted powdered sugar
    1 teaspoon finely shredded lemon peel
    3 teaspoons milk
    1 teaspoon lemon juice
    Mix all the ingredients together until smooth. Drizzle over top of the cake.

    Honey-Orange Glaze:
    ½ cup honey
    1 teaspoon finely shredded orange peel
    ½ cup orange juice (with or without pulp)
    Combine ingredients in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stir until boiling and remove from heat. Let sit until slightly cooled, then drizzle over the cake.

    When I started eating gluten-free food I discovered a flour mix in a book called Living Healthy with Celiac Disease, Wendy Wark (AnAffect, 1998). In addition to the standard gluten-free flour mix of tapioca starch flour, potato starch flour and rice flour she added cornstarch and sweet rice flour. The addition of these two flours make a huge difference in the texture, flavor, and moisture content in gluten-free baking. I couldnt understand why more people werent using this superior flour mix so I made it my mission to distribute this recipe around. (If you cant tolerate corn, just substitute the cornstarch with equal parts of sweet rice flour and tapioca starch flour.)
    While Wendy gave me permission to use the flour mix and many of her recipes I failed to tell her I was naming the flour mix after her in my book. She has since told me that she found it on the internet and doesnt know the source of the recipe, she doesnt feel that she should take credit for the mix.
    Recently Authentic Foods decided to mix these flours in their factory and sell it as the Multi Blend Gluten-Free Flour, now available at The Gluten-Free Mall.
    Multi Blend Gluten-Free Flour (Wendy Warks Gluten-Free Flour Mix)
    1 cup brown rice flour (requires refrigeration)
    1¼ cup white rice flour
    ¼ cup potato starch flour
    2/3 cup tapioca starch flour
    ¾ cup sweet rice flour
    1/3 cup cornstarch
    2 teaspoons xanthan or guar gum
    I often use only brown rice flour in the mix as it is healthier and better tasting. I buy at least 5 pounds every time I order (from manufacturers that sell a lot of brown rice flour). I keep it refrigerated and highly recommend it over white rice flour. This flour mix is the basis of many of my sweets, breadsticks, tortillas, waffles etc. I also like to use pure buckwheat, amaranth, and quinoa flour to increase the flavor and healthfulness of certain items. It is important to buy these alternative flours from pure, gluten-free sources. Pure in the sense that they are grown in fields that are not adjacent to wheat fields and that they are processed in a 100% gluten-free environment from the field to your table.
    Triple this flour mix recipe and keep it on hand for all of your baking needs. Once you have the flour mix together you are ready for about a months worth of gluten-free baking.
    The Multi Blend Gluten-Free Flour mix is used cup for cup in recipes such as tortillas, pancakes/waffles, and cookies. If you plan to use this flour mix for cakes, sweet breads or brownies add an additional ½ teaspoon of xanthan gum per cup flour mix. I dont use this flour mix for bread, pizza crust, breadsticks, etc. as they require specific flour combinations for the best results (see Cooking Gluten-Free! A Food Lovers Collection of Chef and Family Recipes Without Gluten or Wheat Celiac Publishing, 2002).

    ¼ cup instant non-fat dry milk powder
    ½ teaspoon salt
    3 tablespoons vegetable oil
    2 eggs
    Combine gelatin, yeast, water, and sugar together in a 2-cup glass measure. Let stand for 5 minutes, or until foamy. In the bowl of a stand mixer, add flour mix, xanthan gum, milk powder, and salt. Mix briefly, then add oil and eggs, followed by yeast mixture. Beat on high speed for 2 minutes, using the paddle attachment until a soft dough forms. Use dough in your favorite recipe.

That way, you can make sure you share in the delicious snacks without risking a reaction.

Many excellent prepared gluten-free products can be ordered online and delivered directly to your door from places like the Gluten-Free Mall.

    Roasted Garlic Chive Mashed Potatoes
    Ingredients:
    5 large russet potatoes (about 4½ pounds), peeled and cut into chunks
    1 head of garlic (8-10 cloves), roasted
    1 cup fresh cream, warmed
    ¾ cup (1½ sticks) butter, room temperature
    1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh thyme
    1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
    Salt and freshly ground black pepper
    Directions:
    Use a knife to cut off 1/4 to a 1/2 inch of the top of cloves, exposing the individual cloves of garlic. Drizzle lightly with olive oil, and wrap in foil. Place in oven at 400 degrees F, and roast for about 30 minutes, until cloves are soft.
    While garlic is roasting, wash and peel potatoes and cut into 6 chunks each.
    Add 1 teaspoon of salt to a large pot of water, add potatoes and boil until the potatoes are soft (about 25-30 minutes).
    When garlic is soft, remove from oven and allow to cool slightly. Once cool, place garlic on a plate and use a wooden spoon to squeeze roasted garlic out of the clove.
    When potatoes are done, strain them into a colander and let stand for 5 minutes to allow them to steam dry over the pot they were cooked in.
    Mash the potatoes.
    Stir in the cream, butter, roasted garlic, thyme and chives, and season to taste with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
