I made a classic while cake tonight with choc frosting and it did not turn out well, I wanted to cry! :(

I got the recipe from my only gluten-free cookbook, The Incredible Edible Gluten-Free Food for Kids. I was very "heavy" and looked like it was not "done". I am 99.9% sure I followed the recipe correctly.

Does anyone have a recipe for a cake that turns out a little fluffy and GOOD????

Starting a new year, this will be the first year for gluten-free birthdays for my household and I really want to be proud of my cakes and be able to enjoy them.

Any suggestions :(

Hi Stacie,

I have heard nothing but good things about hte recipe that Angel posted, though I have not tried it yet. But I also thought you might like to try this one too if you are looking for a chocolate cake, I made it it my last class and it was oh so yummy!

Depending on your oven, you may need to bake it longer than the time written. I serve mine with a chocolate cream cheese icing.

Tried the chocolate cake made w/citrus flavored soda, but did not have good results. The cake was heavy and dry. The following is one of the best I've found.

Yogurt Chocolate Cake (variation from GFG Cooks Fast & Healthy)

2 c. gluten-free flour mix 1/2 c. (1 stick) margarine or butter

1 tsp. xanthan gum 1/2 c. cocoa

2 tsp. baking powder 2 eggs

1 tsp. baking soda 1 1/3 c. sugar

Pinch of salt 1/2 c. plain yogurt

1 c. boiling water 2 tsp. gluten-free vanilla

Heat oven to 350F. Spray bundt or tube pan with vegetable spray. Blend first 5 ingredients and set aside. In large bowl of mixer, combine water, margarine & cocoa and stir until margarine is melted. Beat eggs until foamy. Add with sugar to cocoa mixture and blend well. Stir in dry ingredients until smooth. Add yogurt & vanilla and mix well. Pour into prepared pan and bake approx. 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean. Let cool slightly before turning onto serving plate. Cake can be frosted or drizzled with chocolate or vanilla glaze, etc.

Please let me know how you like it. Am posting Angel Food Cake recipes in recipe file.

Jo Ann,

Did you try this reicpe that I posted above or the one in the Bette Hagmans dessert book? Cuz I have never turned out a dry or heavy cake, it's actually very light, almost fluffy. I wonder what happened, I use this recipe in my gluten-free cooking class and it always went over really well, especially when I made it with the chocolate.

Sorry it didn't work for you, that bums me out. I hope that others will try it though, it really is extermely good, I actually put it in my pile of recipes for my book because it's been so popular.

Kathleen, sorry I did not have good results with your cake recipe. It was the one posted in this section. I do find that the weather (moisture in the air, etc) can affect gluten-free baking. Also, I use Asian flours which are very finely ground; don't know if this makes a difference. So far the best cakes I've made were Angel Food Cakes (white and chocolate). They are very light, and the whole family enjoys them. I'm still trying to find a decent white bread recipe. Last mix tried was Bob's Red Mill, and my grandson didn't like the flavor (bean and sorgham flour), although the bread was the closest to "real" bread so far. I just keep trying, but exchanging ideas and recipes is a big help. Thanks! Jo Ann

Angel Food Cake

1/2 c. cornstarch

1/3 c. potato starch

3/4 tsp. xanthan gum

3/4 c. sugar

1/2 tsp. salt

1 1/4 c. egg whites (appprox. 8 or 9 large eggs)

1 Tblsp. water

1 tsp. cream of tartar

2 tsp. vanilla flavoring

1/3 c. sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In separate bowl, combine cornstarch, potato starch, xanthan gum, 3/4 c. sugar, & salt. Set aside. In large mixing bowl, combine egg whites, water, cream of tartar, & vanilla. Mix until frothy. While continuing to beat, slowly add 1/3 c. sugar. Beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold in flour mixture until no lumps remain. Put batter into ungreased angel food cake pan. Press batter down to remove any large air spaces. Bake 35-40 min., until golden brown and cracks are dry. Invert pan over glass bottle to cool. When cool, remove from pan. Serves 12.

Chocolate Angel Food Cake can be made by changing the first 3 ingredients to the following:

1/4 c. cornstarch

1/4 c. potato starch

1/4 c. cocoa

1/2 tsp. xanthan gum

The remainder is just the same as the Angel Food Cake.

Our whole family enjoys these cakes, and it pleases my Celiac grandson what the rest of the family likes "his" dessert.

Hope you enjoy them! Jo Ann

    • Well, thank you for replying. Yes, I would also like to know and have a certain "validation" but I will go on to eat gluten free.  Thank you for the idea of keeping a food diary.  I was keeping one for weight loss, but I guess my primary focus will be gluten-free as well.  I'm sorry you had to eat gluten just to find out both tests were negative. That was disappointing, I can only imagine. 
    • Thank you everyone. Jmg & cycling lady sorry for being snippy . I appreciate your help just frustrated. sorry if I am a bit snippy. Not well as you sense. I hate this particular symptom/ reaction. The gluten challenge opened the door to a bunch of  symptoms I buried for 3 1/2 gluten-free years that I had no intention of waking again. I now know it's always been immune and food, but get frustrated over the the amount of time it has not been diagnosed it feels unjust and that most Dr still don't get it 38 years later.  It was reborn after my gluten challenge and I am beyond sad we discovered my DS has this too. As we removed my allergens from the house and my DS was off the foods, if he ate something at school or a friends (because we just removed it for mom) we quickly found and he that he's like mom. He looks like dads mini me but more handsome, but has moms food issues -yikes.  His ped Dr would not test him for celiac or refer him and does not understand food intolerances vs IgE allergies. when we ask for a prescription for allergen free Advil or Tylenol ( I found a compounding  pharamacy willing to work with us) he had ortho work done , she tells us she does not know how to write a prescription for that.   We really don't like reactions and it did say 100 percent juice and quite frankly we believed it.  The histamine  definetly a potential issue as sulphites does not seem consistent food diary wise. I am not sure what is going on. More likely we are celiacs with leaky guts manifesting as food sensitivities trying to heal. I just know I have more intolerances then when I went in. I went into the challenge not being able to eat gluten and came out with all heck breaking lose.  I quit my PT job so I can Prep and cook from scratch entirely growing all my own herbs etc trying to heal. My husband actually enjoys our food even more and tolerates the "woman he married being gone and replaced by this alien" my words not his. He does want me to heal, believes I will, so he can have his wife back. I question if I just have to accept who I am now. I am disheartened that it's slow to heal and despite my years of this undiagnosed garbage I can't get my son the help he needs in 2017! thanks for letting me rant. It was stupid to believe a processed juice maker I'm waiting to activate my water kefir colony so we can add something to our homemade almond milk and water options.   thanks for letting me rant and why do I still have to rant.   maybe the 43 years of frustration and anger of being an undiagnosed celiac.   so sorry y'all. Cranky few days  
    • My daughter did not test positive for celiac (6 week gluten challenge after being gluten free for 2 months).  So she is technically NCGS. One of her worst symptoms is leg pain. It was a chronic problem when she was 7, to the point where she could no longer play soccer. At 8 we went gluten free because of GI issues and the leg pain went away. It came back with the gluten challenge and again went away when we went off gluten for good after testing. If she gets glutened, that is one of the tell-tale symptoms. She has had to use crutches because the pain is so bad.  And when glutened, the pain usually lasts about 3 days. 
    • Thanks raven and awol--I think she will feel much better hearing that these pains could be due to her celiac.  I don't know about the Epsom salts-never asked-so I definitely will.  I think further compounding it right now is that the doctor did not want her to take ibuprofen for 7 days before the procedure and not sure if Tylenol is allowed but she can't take it because it messes with the continuous glucose monitor that she wears.  Only 4 more days.   I will try to see if my primary can or will run a full celiac panel for me.  Left him a message asking why he didn't test my immunoglobulin a and whether we should be running the full panel.  I have encouraged my husband to test as well--he did just have a colonoscopy and endoscopy last fall--looking for other things but would they have been able to see celiac if there?  He has bad acid reflux and they were just doing the colonoscopy since he turned 50.  My other daughter-who has Hashimoto's-was genetically tested for celiac through Prometheus labs about 6 years ago due to our family history of autoimmune and she was having bad stomach issues--that came back negative.  So I think (hope) she's good?  
    • Omg I love quiche.  https://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/gluten-free-quiche-lorraine/1d20d2e5-e2cd-4b2a-bc83-38bee7736463 i have trail mix for breakfast. Its nutty goodness is high in protein and helps me stay full.
