the land o lakes gluten free pound cake is great-from their website:

2 cups sugar
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, melted
4 Land O Lakes® All-Natural Eggs
4 teaspoons gluten-free vanilla
3 cups Gluten-Free Flour Blend (see below)
2 teaspoons gluten-free baking powder
1 cup milkDirectionsHeat oven to 350°F.
Grease 12-cup Bundt® or 10-inch angel food cake (tube) pan; sprinkle with gluten-free flour blend. Set aside.

Combine sugar and melted butter in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add 1 egg at a time, beating well after each addition. Add vanilla; beat until well mixed.

Stir together gluten-free flour blend and baking powder in small bowl. Gradually add flour blend mixture alternately with milk to butter mixture, beating at low speed until well mixed.

Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for 50 to 60 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan.

Gluten-Free Flour Blend: To make flour blend, combine
2 cups rice flour,
2/3 cup potato starch,
1/3 cup tapioca flour and 1 teaspoon xanthan gum. Use appropriate amount for recipe; store remainder in container with tight-fitting lid. Stir before using

You might want to check out the recipes in The Cake Mix Doctor Bakes Gluten Free. They're pretty good and I have used them for small weddings.

Thanks, you for the land o lakes recipe. Bought the potato starch,tapioca starch, rice flour and sweet rice flour at my local asian market .When reading the reviews,someone suggested to use both rice flours.The only thing missing is the xantham gum,very expensive at the health food store.Going online to get it. Please email me the sponge cake recipe also.I'll let you know how they turn out. I have the Cake Mix Doctor books except the Gluten Free one. Thank you didn't know she had a g.f. book also. thumbs_up.gif

1st one
Gluten Free Easy Sponge Cake
Recipe from

Gluten Free Easy Sponge Cake
Makes one sponge cake (length of a jelly roll pan or full sized cookie sheet), serves plenty! (depending on the size of your slices.)
You can find a printable copy of this recipe here.

8 eggs, room temperature
1 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup potato starch (NOT flour!)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons GF vanilla extract
1 teaspoon GF lemon extract
1 teaspoon GF almond extract


freshly whipped cream
fresh fruit (strawberries and blueberries)
powdered sugar (for dusting)


1.Separate the egg whites and the yolks.
2.Beat the egg whites until stiff peaks form and set aside.
3.Beat the egg yolks until light yellow and creamy - about 2 - 3 minutes)
4.Sift together powdered sugar, potato starch (not flour!) and salt.
5.Add sifted dry ingredients to the beaten egg yolks and mix thoroughly.
6.Add the extracts. Mix again.
7.Using a spatula or spoon (not your mixer!), gently fold the egg whites into the batter.
8.Preheat the oven to 325F.
9.Line a jelly roll pan or a full sized cookie sheet pan with parchment paper.
10.Gently smooth the cake batter out to the length of your pan with even depth. (My pan is 18" by 13" - and the batter is about 2/3 - 1" thick).
11.Bake the cake for 15 minutes then turn off the oven and open the oven door. (I open the oven by cracking it open about 2-3 inches.)
12.Leave the cake to cool in the oven for 5-8 minutes.
13.Remove from oven and cool.
14.Gently lift the cooled cake up off the parchment paper just to loosen it from the paper. Lay the cake back down on to the paper. You will use the parchment to help you roll the cake.
15.Top with freshly whipped cream and fresh fruit slices.
16.Have a piece of fresh parchment paper the length of your cake OR a serving platter that fits nearby. Use the parchment paper to help you roll the cake. (I roll it so I have LONG cake (see picture) rather than rolling the short end and have a HUGE rolled cake.)
17.Lay the cake on the fresh parchment or on your serving platter. Gently lay a few pieces of fruit on top and dust with powdered sugar.
18.Serve and enjoy! (We have served this with ice cream, macerated strawberries or whatever strikes our fancy/hits our budget point!)

Happy cake baking, everyone!

here's the one I used for b-day cake
1 stick softened butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
3/4 cup gf flour blend --- white rice, tapioca, potato starch-3-2-1 ratio to equal 3/4th cup of flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp vanilla extract -optional
2 tablespoons milk
bake at 350 for 15 to 20 minutes-watch carefully

sometimes I use heavy whipping cream with great results-I did for yesterday's baking

whip the butter, add the sugar, add the cream/milk
add the extract if using
add the eggs one at a time
add the flour
add the baking powder-last step
you will have pre-heated the oven, cooks quickly thus watch,
