Amazing Yellow Cake (Gluten Free)

I have searched for ages for a good gluten free cake recipe, and finally developed this one.


  • 3/4 c. butter 1 tsp vanilla 1 tsp cream of tartar 5 eggs 2 c. sugar 1 1/2 tsp soda 1/4 tsp salt 1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum 1 1/4 c. milk 1 c. rice flour 1 c. corn or potato starch 1 c. tapioca starch


mix very well and bake at 350 for 45 minutes. Makes an 8" round cake

would this make good cupcakes?
I can't wait to try this!
Thanks for sharing! I cannot wait to try it!
1 1/2 tsp baking soda?
Can butter be substituted with something else for dairy allergy?
This makes a very big cake - I had to use two 8 inch x 3 inch pans. When I used one 8 inch by 3 inch pan, it overflowed.
Sorry for the confusion Bonnieandrachel - yes, it makes a double 8" cake
Yes, you can sub out the butter for a casein-free cake
Yes, 1 1/2 tsp baking soda. Sorry for leaving that out, and thank you for catching it!
I am new to gluten free baking, my son has recently been switched, so I am just learing, can I sub the three flours/starches for 3c. of a gluten free flour blend, and where do you buy the xanthan gum?? A healthfood store?? Any advice greatly appreciated!! Thanks!
This also makes an awesome chocolate cake if you keep everything the same but make the following adjustments with the flours- use 2/3 cup tapioca starch, 2/3 cup potato starch, 2/3 cup rice flour, and 1 cup cocoa powder.
Is there any specific way this should be mixed?
