Gluten Free Churro Cake


This year I am so excited for Cinco De Mayo. I've had a couple recipe ideas that I've been saving for the occasion. One of those recipes is for this delicious gluten free churro cake. As a gluten free eater, churros are usually off the menu. Sure I could have tried to make homemade churros, but did I mention churro cake!? Trust me, you're going to want to try this one.

The cake was really easy to make and I was surprised just how close to the churro flavor it captured. I actually think I love this cake more than regular churros because it's spongy, moist and a slice of cake generally lasts longer than a churro. Who doesn't love cake??

In addition to the cake, I made a couple small loaves and they were devoured quickly by my husband and his friends, so there is no evidence of these loafs. But trust me, they were just as good as the cake.





Ingredients:

3 cups of all purpose gf baking flour,  I like the Bob's Red Mill brand
1 1/2 cups of sugar
1 Tbs baking powder
2 Tbs Salt
2 Tbs Vanilla
3 Eggs
1/2 cup of milk
1/3 cup of Brown Sugar
1/2 cup of butter


Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Grease pans with oil, use 8x8 or 9x9 inch round pans for a two layered cake

Combine all dry ingredients and mix together with a fork or whisk

Mix wet ingredients together with either a whisk or use a mixer until blended

Add in dry ingredients and mix together until well blended

Put mixture in pans and bake for 30-40 minutes

Let cool and then add frosting

For this cake I just used a store bought gf cream cheese frosting then spread brown sugar around the top of the cake
