How to Make Gluten Free Spice Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 325. Grease a 9 inch-round nonstick pan. Line the bottom with waxed paper, then spray again.

    Sift the flour blend and spices into a lg bowl.

    Combine the milk and sugar in a heavy saucepan and bring just to a boil over medium heat. Remove from the heat and add the butter, oil, molasses, and vanilla.

    When the butter had melted, add the butter mixture to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly blended. Add the eggs and mix until blended. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

    Bake for 50 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Invert the cake onto a plate, remove the paper, and cool completely.
  2. Directions for frosting

    Dissolve the coffee in the hot water or hot coffee; set aside.

    in a double boiler over boiling water, combine the egg whites, sugar, crm of tarter, and cold water. Beat with an electric mixer on high for 7 minutes, or until soft peaks form.
