I love to celebrate with a layer cake, and with Mother’s Day coming up, I thought it was a great opportunity to update our Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake.
Moist and delicious, this Gluten Free Red Velvet cake is not only easy, but a great crowd pleaser.
To make our Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake, we followed a traditional recipe with a few swaps to make it gluten free and delicious.
Gluten Free Flour: For this cake, we used our Gluten Free 1:1 Baking Flour Blend, but it works well with most ready made blends.
Red Food Coloring: To give this cake its red color, it uses red food coloring. There are many natural options available such as ones made with beetroot.
Buttermilk: This is what gives this cake its moist, velvet texture. Sometimes we are unable to find buttermilk, but a simple combination of milk and vinegar works well too.
Maybe you want to make this cake but can’t have dairy, not to worry! Simply use your favorite dairy free butter and dairy free milk instead of the dairy versions. You can also top it with a regular Dairy Free Buttercream instead of cream cheese.
To finish off your cake, use some simple decorations such as sprinkles or you can be adventurous like me and pipe flowers to make it beautiful for mom.
As always, we hope you enjoy the recipe. tag us on social media if you to and Happy Mother’s Day for all of us at Off The Wheaten Path!
