This could be the best thing to happen to fall since, well…ever!!
Wait for it…..
GLUTEN FREE Pumpkin Spice Cake.
Let that sink in for a minute.
Ok, now you can start celebrating!! Finally, a pumpkin-flavored treat that you can eat without worrying about an upset tummy later!
My husband created this gluten free pumpkin spice cake to use in an easy pumpkin spice ice cream cake recipe, but the cake itself is amazing enough to enjoy alone. So I’m sharing this recipe separately.
Gluten free cakes run the gamut — it can be difficult to re-create that fluffy, yet moist texture of traditional cakes. However this gluten free pumpkin spice cake nails it.
So go ahead, grab a pumpkin spice latte and a slice of this decadent gluten free pumpkin spice cake, and go pumpkin wild!
Gluten free pumpkin spice cake ingredients:
- 1/2 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 1/2 cup dark brown sugar
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- 1/2 cup mayonnaise (for lactose free version) OR sour cream
- 5 eggs
- 1 cup tapioca flour
- 1 cup almond flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground ginger
STEP ONE: Preheat oven to 350°F.
STEP TWO: Combine wet ingredients in a large mixing bowl.
STEO THREE: In a separate mixing bowl, sift together dry ingredients. Add dry ingredients to bowl with wet ingredients and mix well. My husband hand-mixed, but you could also use a stand mixer to make it easier.
STEP FOUR: Pour into a greased 9″ round cake pan. Bake at 350°F for 30 minutes.
I love to top this with homemade caramel sauce! (In a small saucepan over medium-low heat mix 1 cup dark brown sugar, 1 stick butter, and 1 cup coconut milk. Stir constantly for about 10 minutes. Allow to cool.) It’s lactose free!
If you want to double-up on the pumpkin goodness, you’ve got to try the super-easy Pumpkin Spice Ice Cream Cake (with pumpkin ice cream) that this cake recipe was created for. You make the ice cream cake right in the carton! It’s practically fool-proof!
