Today, I thought I’d share with you my favourite gluten free cakey foods. Why should going gluten free mean you miss out on all those sweet treats? It shouldn’t. These recipes include cupcakes and mud cake dessert.
If you’ve been following along, you’ll know that I seldom eat sugar these days, however, I thought I would share these recipesas party season will be upon us soon and it’s good to have some options up your sleeve.
So here goes:
Banana cake has to be one of my all-time favourite cakes. While this one has cream in the middle and is made more for a special occasion, I also make it with chocolate icing for a more every day cake.
This one is a classic! Unbeknownst to me, I had been making this gluten free cake for years before anyone ever knew about gluten. When I was growing up during the 70s, every special event involved a Victoria Sponge. This one takes a little effort because you sift the ingredients three times, but it well worth it.
Lemon curd is one of the most delicious things on the planet! Sweet and sour and sticky– what more could you ask. Layers of spongy lemony cake filled with wonderful lemon curd.
Ok, so technically it’s a slice but it’s got ‘cake’ in the title so I’m going with it. I love the coconut topping on this cake,as well as the jam filling. So divine!
Also, technically a slice. This has a crumbly base with a lovely soft marshmallow topping. My Mum used to make this when we were kids. I used to think it was so special. Hers usually had a berry topping which I think is nicer but I made this one for St Patricks Day a few years ago.
We eat this one as a dessert with cream and berries as you can see here. I’ve included here simply because it’s a goto recipe for us and I wanted to share it with you all.
This is one of the most decadent recipes I’ve ever made! It’s so delicious but with eight eggs, it’s definitely a special occasion affair. I made this one for a friend's birthday years ago and fell in love. There's nothing quite like a rich, dark chocolate cake.
So that's my top six gluten free cakey foods. I hope these recipes have inspire you to run off to your kitchen, or a least the supermarket to buy the ingredients.
Be sure to let me know if you have any questions.
