4 Delicious Gluten Free Cake Recipes 

Sticking to a gluten-free diet can be tricky. Although there’s more gluten-free options than ever, you may still find yourself looking at a disappointingly small section of the menu at a restaurant. Should you just accept that most of the delicious cakes and pastries at the bakery are beyond your reach forever? 

Of course not! 

If you want something doing well, it’s a good idea to do it yourself. A surefire way of getting light, fluffy, and delicious gluten free cake is to check out a few good recipes! 

1. Gluten Free Chocolate Sheet Cake 

Who doesn’t love a nice piece of chocolate cake? When made properly, chocolate sheet cake is soft, moist, and very, very moreish. This recipe includes dairy free and gluten free ingredients. 

The cake itself uses almond and coconut flour, tapioca starch, and unsweetened cashew milk among other ingredients. The frosting part of the recipe is also dairy free, requiring a few sticks of dairy-free butter. 

This cake is a great way to handle your chocolate cravings without having to include dairy or gluten in your baking.

2. Gluten Free Lemon Loaf 

Lemon loaf is a timeless classic. The perfect combination of tart and sweet, topped with its famous lemon glaze, this is any cake lover’s dream. 

This particular recipe is gluten and dairy free, using grapeseed oil. However, do make sure that your grapeseed oil is gluten free, too! 

The recipe is simple, just like a lemon loaf should be. It sticks closely to a regular lemon loaf recipe, only substituting dairy and gluten free ingredients. This means that your finished lemon loaf should still have that distinctive, zesty flavor. 

3. Gluten Free Pumpkin Brownies 

When it’s autumn, we all know what that means – pumpkin flavors! Baking gluten free and dairy free brownies might seem an impossible task. Fortunately, we’ve got you covered with these fabulous pumpkin brownies. 

However, if you don’t mind having dairy in your brownies, you can use regular whipped cream cheese for the filling, instead of the suggested dairy free options. 

4. Gluten Free Banana Cake

Last but not least, we have the simple but delicious banana cake. An old favorite and great for using up overripe bananas, this is an easy cake for baking beginners. A gluten free version is as simple as swapping out wheat flour for an alternative of your choice. 

You can create a dairy free version of this banana cake by swapping out the cream cheese in the frosting ingredients for a dairy free substitute.

Sticking to a gluten free diet does require a little more planning ahead. You can’t just walk into a restaurant and order the first thing that catches your eye, since your health might suffer. Whether you’re staying gluten free for health reasons, allergy reasons, or you’re simply trying to eat better, that doesn’t mean you should miss out on the things you like to eat. 

You might find that you prefer your own baking to shop bought, after all!
