Gluten-Free Layered Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese
Frosting & Blueberry Granola Crumb Middle
So, this is pretty much the same gluten-free recipe I used in the coffee cakes that I’ve been baking (baking one right now with a Cheerios crumb topping, maybe not totally GF), it’s just baked in layers and frosted.
The recipe follows the tempting images…
Gluten-Free Layered Cake with Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting & Blueberry Granola Crumb Middle
Yield = 2, 6″ cake layers
1 C Gf flour mix – used Bob’s Red Mill
½ C potato starch
2 T almond flour
1 t baking powder
pinch of salt
1 stick unsalted butter (1/2 cup)
½ C + 2 T sugar
1 ½ t vanilla
2 T plain yogurt
3 T milk
Process: add the dry ingredients to a medium sized bowl and mix well, set aside; cream the butter and sugar for 7-10 minutes to get it light and fluffy; add the vanilla continue to mix; add the eggs one at a time and mix well; add the yogurt and milk and continue to mix; add the dry ingredients and mix on low until well combined but careful not to over mix; add to prepared pans; bake for 25 minutes in preheated oven set at 325F. Watche the cake carefully, overbaking it will cause dryness.
Whipped Cream Cheese Frosting
Ingredients: 1/2 C whipped cream, 3 T cream cheese, 3T butter, 1/2 t vanilla, 1 C (or less) confectioner’s sugar
Process: beat the cream cheese, butter, sugar and vanilla together; fold in the whipped cream; set aside about 1/2 cup of this mixture for the blueberries to be folded in to.
Ingredients: 3T cold butter, 3 T sugar, 2T gf flour, 3/4 C homemade granola (Recipe here.)
Process: put all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until crumbly.
1 cup of blueberries treated with 1 T sugar, 1 T lemon juice then folded into 1/2 C of the creamed cheese frosting. About 1/4 cup of blueberries for decorating.
Fold the blueberries into the 1/2 cup of frosting; after cake layers are cooled and removed from pans, add this mixture to the top of one layer; add the granola crumble on top of this; place remaining layer on top and frost the entire cake with the remaining frosting. Serve and enjoy!
