Chocolate & Vanilla Marble Cake

What better way to decide between chocolate or vanilla. Have them both! This cake uses my gluten free chocolate cake recipe (click here) as well as a vanilla butter cake. Both batters are very easy to make and amazing on their own or together. I use my own custom gluten free flour blend, but any cup…

Pistachio Cupcakes

I have been in such a pistachio mood lately and find myself getting pistachios frequently to snack on. I love their flavor and color and knew I had to put that into a cake. I made a mascarpone frosting for these cupcakes, but any vanilla or cream cheese frosting would also work. I am not a…

Portuguese Orange Cake

With some extra vanilla added in, because everything is better with vanilla. I have great memories of going to this Portuguese bakery with an ex I definitely wouldn’t call him a boyfriend guy. Their pastries were so flavorful and the texture was always spot on! I loved the simplicity of the presentation and ingredients as well. This recipe…

It will also send the most amazing aroma throughout your home when you start to make it! Enjoy! Ingredients: 5 Tbsp Cocoa ½ Cup Vegetable Oil (Canola) 1…

Gluten Free Butter Almond Cake

I started reading this incredibly inspiring and beautifully written book about a 28 year old who suffers a brain aneurysm and uses cooking and food to fully heal and champion such a frightening time in her life. It illustrates the fact that food and cooking for so many is a source of memories and comfort. Food has…

Summer Peach Bundt Cake

My little brother brought home what had to be the best peaches I had ever tasted! This resulted in an impromptu peach baking night! He made an amazing peach crisp and I kept it classy with a peach bundt cake. Flavors and texture are very light, great with coffee or ice cream! Hope you enjoy…

Easy Gluten Free Summer Dessert

This is a NO Bake NO Gluten NO Fuss NO Diet Cheesecake recipe that is bound to be a crowd favorite! A family friend would often make this for us and it quickly became a staple dessert. I modified their recipe a touch in order to make it gluten free. In other words, the crust…

This recipe is VERY simple and the texture and taste is that of a cinnamon sugar cake donut. Hope you enjoy!! Ingredients: 1 Cup Brown Sugar ½ Cup…

L is for Lovers…and Lemons

I love baking with lemon and kept coming across recipes for this cake so I had to try it out! I have made flourless cakes in the past, but never with almond flour so this was all new territory. I ended up changing the original recipe a little to add salt and coconut flour because I…

Extra Fun Thursday

I have been craving Funfetti cake like CRAZY and I can’t seem to get my hands on the recently announced Pillsbury Gluten Free Funfetti Cake Mix, so I made my own. Boxed cake has a very distinct flavor and texture which can be accomplished by adding sour cream or greek yogurt to your recipe (this…

Cornmeal Peach Upside Down Cake {gluten free}

I have made this recipe before, but instead I made the cake separately, then topped the cake with macerated peaches (peaches soaked in lemon juice/sugar/mint) and homemade whipped cream. Today, I decided to change it up and use the same cake recipe, but this time make it a peach upside down cake complete with a buttery brown-sugary…

Lemon Chiffon Cake {gluten free]

Today I did a cake tasting for such a fun couple! They are going with a rustic pink & gold theme and a dessert table — including a naked three-tiered funfetti cake! I also had them taste a chocolate cake, chocolate chip marble cake, and lastly, lemon chiffon cake. For the frostings and fillings they tasted vanilla…
