Top tips for vegan gluten-free cakes
Weigh! For best results with baking, we highly recommend weighing your ingredients. It is especially difficult to accurately measure gluten-free flours and starches by volume using cups. This kitchen scale is easy to use, affordable and will make your measuring much more accurate and produce better cakes.
Follow the recipe! Gluten-free recipes are specially designed to work with the specific quantities and ingredients listed. Substituting one type of GF flour for another can have a big impact on the texture and taste of the cake.
Check the label! When catering for allergies or someone with celiac disease, it's essential to check the labels of your ingredients to ensure they are Gluten-Free. Hidden gluten can be in unexpected ingredients. You should also take care to avoid cross contact with gluten.
What gluten-free flours are the best for baking? Traditional all-purpose flour has a unique composition that is hard to replicate with a single gluten-free flour, so the best one-to-one replacement is typically a blend of GF flours and starches.
Bob's Red Mill Gluten-Free All-Purpose Baking Flour, or King Arthur Gluten-Free Measure for Measure are good storebought options to try.
For the best result use the brand or blend specified in the recipe.
Single ingredient flours such as oat flour, almond flour, white or brown rice flour, potato starch, tapioca flour or millet flour are also typically used to create homemade GF blends or individually in gluten-free cake recipes.
