Gluten Free Cake recipe!

Basically a pound cake,

1 Cup Gluten Free Flour (see: )
1 Cup Butter, approx 250g
1 Cup Sugar, raw or caster
1 Cup Milk
1 Tbs Baking Powder
1 Egg

- Cream butter and sugar
- Add flour, Baking Powder and Egg
- Mix up a bit
- add Milk while mixing
- Beat until fluffy, doesn't take too long.
- Batter is quite thick!
- Spoon/scrape into a lined or oiled tin
- bake at 150 C for around 40 minutes, until the outside is golden.

The cake will be very floppy and flimsy. I leave it out overnight which lets the Xanthan gum set nicely and give a firm cake.

Useful GF flour mix

2/3 cup Rice flour
1/3 cup Potato Flour
1 Tsp Xanthan gum

I'll experiment with a bit of Tapioca starch in my next attempt, but the above works really well for just about everything. Needs a touch more raising agent than wheat flower.
