Easy Christmas Cake

Recommended Posts

Hi, I have purchased Bobs Red Mill all purpose baking flour to make a Christmas cake.  I really want something relatively easy, and was wondering if someone can direct me to a simple recipe whereby I can use this flour and make a cake that's half decent.

 

Thank a lot.

What about a Christmas Yule log? Got a jelly roll pan? We made gluten-free pumpkin rolls using the standard Libbey's Pumpkin recipe off the can and it was yummy! Here is a chocolate one, but I would sub out the white frosting for a chocolate one decorated with shaved chocolate, piped holly to make it look like a log.

Hi, I am English and a traditional Christmas cake has lots of fruit, nuts and alcohol in it...I made it yesterday, but it will be a week before I eat any of it, and so because I have had a few disasters :unsure:  with baking recently  I wont post the recipe yet, I want to make sure it tastes fine, also I have added rum to it, and i plan on adding more today and in five more days...so once I know it tastes fine I will post the recipe. :D

I've never heard of cake enhancer either.  The King Arthur Cake Enhancer has this for ingredients:

INGREDIENTS: EMULSIFIER (RICE STARCH,
POLYGLYCEROL ESTERS OF FATTY ACIDS,
MONO- AND DIGLYCERIDES OF FATTY
ACIDS).
Produced in a dedicated gluten-free, allergenfree*
manufacturing facility.
*free of the 8 most common food allergens
 
 
.... I'm still not sure what it is.  LOL

The KAF cake enhancer is something they use in all their cake recipes but they say is optional.  It makes stuff stay softer and moist longer.  Ive heard some great things about it but never tried it myself.

I never have used an enhancer. Must be the same stuff that is in Twinkies! Rumor has it that they can last a decade or more! Commercial bakers need a long shelf life, but I prefer to eat most thing right out of the oven or I freeze it. Need more moisture? Add more oil or butter.

I just found the recipe online for the Log/roll for easy reference. I did not realize it mentioned an enhancer. Sorry!
