Wish me luck everyone I am make a German Chocolate cake from a "Normal Recipe" that I am making gluten-free. All I am doing is replacing the cake flour with a recipe for gluten-free Cake Flour. I really hope this works...

That is the flour mix that I use and everything turns out great! Good luck!

It sounds good and I hope it turns out for you. I'll be anxious to see the finished result. Two years gluten-free and I've never tried to convert a regular cake recipe.

There is no reason why it should not work. I convert recipes to cakes and cookies regularly without any problems at all. Same with cornbread, quick breads, brownies... :P

awesome thanks guys I am really worried that my friends wont like it.. They aren't gluten free.

I've found most people can't tell.

I've also found most people don't know what a homemade cake tastes like, anyway - so a gluten-free homemade cake is still an upgrade.

:).

It looks yumm-o.

Many cakes are made gluten free naturally anyway so your friends have no reason not to love them! Yeast breads are a different story.
