Made some changes to the original one I posted, but don’t know how to change or delete the other one. Here is the updated version:



Amount Ingredient
3/4 c. margarine
1 1/2 c. sugar
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1 1/4 c. AP Gluten-Free Flour Blend
1 1/4 c. Featherlight Gluten-Free Flour Blend
3 Tbsp cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 c. buttermilk
1 tsp vinegar
1 oz. red food color



Cream margarine and sugar. Add eggs one at a time. Sift together dry ingredients and set aside. Combine remaining wet ingredients and set aside. Alternate adding dry ingredients and wet ingredients until everything is well combined. Add red food coloring to batter, if desired. Bake at 350 for cupcakes and 325 for cakes until it springs back when touched lightly in the middle (about 25-30 minutes for cupcakes and about 50-60 minutes for a cake).

PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS RECIPE! The first time I tried it (while I was making up the recipe) it was great, but I must have written something down wrong because the second time I made it (reading from this recipe) it was terrible. Even with tons of doctoring it still didn't taste right. I will be re-doing this recipe to figure out what went wrong, but in the meantime please use at your own risk ;)

If any of you that have tried the recipe have thoughts as to what may have been the problem(s) I would greatly appreciate it! More batches = faster resolution.

Hi is there anything to substitute for xanthan gum? The recipe looks good!

The only thing to sub would be guar gum
