Gluten Free Pumpkin Spice Cake πŸŽƒ

Here is a super easy recipe for pumpkin spice cake using a box of gf yellow cake mix, a can of pumpkin, 1.5 T pumpkin pie spice, and 1.5 T cinnamon.

  
Simone mixed the ingredients…

  
…. And baked it for 30 minutes at 350β€’.

  
(As with most gf cakes, it’s a heavier, denser cake than none gf)

  

You can frost it or just serve it with ice cream πŸ˜‹

A very special Wacky Cake: gluten free, corn free, egg free, dairy free

My sister is always up for a baking challange so when she was in town this past week, she was determined to make a cake that all family members could eat.

These are the ingredients she could NOT use:

For Eli – 

  • Gluten (wheat flour)
  • Corn (corn starch, xanthum gum, premade baking powder, local powdered sugar (has corn starch))

For my youngest sister 

  • Dairy
  • Eggs

I told my sister not to worry about the cake, I had given up all attempts at making a cake… She certainly didn’t need to feel obligated to try.  

She’s stubborn and sweet ❀️ And apparently a brilliant baker because SHE SUCCEEDED!!!

  

She made the most delicious chocolate cupcakes with strawberries cut to look like flowers 🌸 

  
You can tell how delicious they were by the smile on Eli’s face! 

When my sister was looking for flour to use, she had called me and read off a million different packages and their ingredients.  We actually found a flour mix she could use!!

    
 

Drumroll please….

Recipe

  • 3 c flour (see pic for our choice)
  • 2 c sugar
  • 1t sea salt
  • 2t baking soda
  • 1/2 c + 1/8 c cocoa powder
  • 3/4 c coconut oil
  • 2T apple cider vinegar
  • 2 c cold water
  • 3t vanilla (corn free)

Mix everything together and bake like a typical cake or cupcake at 350.  

For frosting -melt EnjoyLife chocolate chips (these are the best chocolate chips ever … And there is even a dark chocolate)
