gluten free cake recipes

When we started out in the gluten free business over a decade ago it’s fair to say that gluten free food either didn’t exist or had a reputation for tasting really bad. Luckily things have changed drastically for those on a gluten free diet; there are brands that provide quick, easy gluten free solutions. There are also a huge selection of recipes out there that substitute traditional wheat flour for gluten free alternatives.

Gluten free cake recipes that you’ll love

At Well and Good we love sharing our passion for food and our ever-expanding list of recipes. Our first two considerations before publishing any recipe is flavour and texture. After all, if either of these two factors are lacking then the food will taste very average. Once we’re happy with the quality of the recipe, we also ensure it’s simple. People are busy. We get that. So we don’t provide hugely complex or time consuming recipes – they’re mostly toss ingredients in a bowl, mix then bake type recipes that usually take under 10 minutes preparation time.

We wanted to kick off this list off with our gluten free mud cake. A rich, chocolate cake with a yummy fudge texture. It’s so easy to make using our Mudcake Mix. If you’re more of a scratch baker, then read on as we have recipes that allow you to get more creative in the kitchen.

This is a decadent cake which is perfect for an at home snack or can be dressed up for a crowd pleasing perfect birthday cake that everyone can enjoy.

gluten free sponge cake recipe2. Gluten free sponge cake

A Victorian sponge cake is always popular. It’s usually one of the first foods to disappear at kids birthday parties and adults seem to enjoy them just as much. A simple one layer cake topped with cream or a majestic double layered work of art, you decide.

We’ve ensured that making your sponge will be simple and forget about a failed sponge that’s flat as a pancake. This recipe uses our sponge mix that allows you to create a beautiful looking cake every time.

Who doesn’t enjoy a cheesecake. This version is a fresh tasting treat that looks spectacular on the plate. It takes a bit longer to make than buying a store bought one, but we assure you the effort is worth it.

We’ve used gluten free flours that are high in fibre and protein for a bit of added nutrition.
