Gluten-Free Vanilla Cake

The secret to the very best vanilla cake recipe, gluten free, is in the balance of ingredients at the proper temperature—and in the method. Read the recipe through carefully first, follow it closely, and you’ll know you can make a vanilla cake, gluten free, with an open crumb and tons of delicate flavor any time.

The most important parts of the method are using one of my recommended gf flour blends, sifting it well, and beating the butter and sugar together until they’re light and fluffy. And your ingredients must be at room temperature before you begin, or they won’t combine properly no matter what you do.
