Basic Lemon Cake From Scratch

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I received a recipe for an Italian Lemon cake from an Aunt that calls for using a lemon cake mix and in my area I am not able to find a gluten free lemon cake mix. I have Bob Mills all purpose gluten free mix. I am having a hard time finding a Lemon cake recipe from scratch to use. Anyone have a good recipe that can be used? It is to be used in a 9x13 baking pan.

Have you considered using a gluten-free cake mix (like the Betty Crocker or Bob's Red Mill - whatever you like) and simply adding lemon extract (flavoring) to it? You can buy McCormick (gluten-free) lemon extract at lots of grocery stores.

...or freshly-squeezed lemon juice in place of some of the liquid as well as lemon zest. I have never used a gluten-free cake mix and have a mean lemon cake recipe around here somewhere...

Out of curiosity, what are the other components of this dessert/cake? Does it have a glaze? Simple syrup? Curd? Filling? As a baker I love to know these things. :P

One commenter said she made this into a lemon cake and it tasted exactly like Starbuck's lemon poundcake. I would imagine Love2Travel's suggestions would apply nicely here. I bought some lemon extract, also mentioned by missmellie, and thought I'd substitute one or two teaspoons of the vanilla extract with that if I ever get around to making it.

Land of Lakes gluten-free Vanilla Pound Cake

3 cups Gluten-Free Flour Blend (see below OR 1 c. sweet rice flour, 1 c. rice flour, 2/3 c. potato starch, 1/3 c. tapioca, and 1 t. xanthan gum)

2 cups sugar
