I did it! I finally did it! I have made countless cupcakes and always came up short. I was beginning to think that it wasn’t possible to make a gluten free cake that was light and airy and moist. Sure, it’s easy to make a cake that’s dense or dry. I found plenty of ways to do that. But to make a cupcake that is so unbelievably light? It’s like finding the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.
This Ultimate Vanilla Cake recipe tastes like it was made from a box mix. If I didn’t tell you it was made from scratch, or gluten free, or sugar free, you would never know! I knew I was on to something good when I couldn’t stop licking the spatula. And I am still in a state of disbelief and just how light these are.
What makes this recipe the Ultimate Vanilla Cake recipe? These are perfect in every way. The cake is soft and smooth. It squishes and bounces back easily. It is delicious on its own and when paired with my Ultimate Sugar Free Buttercream, you have something sinful on your hands.
I used an all-purpose gluten free flour mix. I have found that I like a local brand the best (I use Wegman’s brand). You can use your favorite blend. If your blend does not include xanthan gum, be sure to add it to the recipe.
