Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice flour
  • 2/3 cup potato starch
  • 1/3 cup tapioca starch
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon xanthan gum
  • 4 eggs
  • 2 cups white sugar
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup butter melted and cooled
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease (2) 8" round cake pans with butter and line the bottom of each pan with a greased parchment circle. Stir together the dry ingredients and set aside. Beat the eggs and the sugar together until creamy. Add half of the dry ingredients and beat again. Add the buttermilk, butter, vanilla and almond extracts and beat to combine. Add the remaining dry ingredients and beat just until combined.
  • Divide the batter between the greased cake pans. Bake in the center of the oven for 35-40 minutes, until the cake is very lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Remove and let cool at least 30 minutes, before inverting onto a wire rack to finish cooling. Frost as desired. Enjoy!

Notes

This recipe makes (40) cupcakes. Bake cupcakes at 350°F for 18 minutes. If you are looking for a traditional white cake recipe, not a gluten free version, I recommend I Am Baker's Perfect White Cake. The recipe has received amazing reviews from everyone who has made it.
