Free From Vanilla Sponge Cake Recipe
Dairy free, soya free, wheat free, gluten free, coconut free, almond free and egg free.
Since going wheat free at the beginning of February I have been experimenting with different wheat free flours to make the perfect vanilla sponge cake. A lot of them have been very stodgy and some quite powdery but this one is delicious, it’s quite dense so not light and fluffy like some vanilla sponge cakes but it still tastes great. If you’ve read some of my other posts then you’ll know I’ve gone dairy and wheat free as my doctor has said that my recurrent tonsillitis could be a symptom of dairy and wheat intolerance, It’s been three months so far and I feel so much better. I have more energy, no fatigue, I sleep better and I’m not bloated but best of all no tonsillitis (touch wood). My son has cow’s milk protein allergy, soya intolerance, coconut allergy, pineapple allergy, strawberry allergy and egg intolerance so this cake is perfect for us to share.
240g wheat/gluten free flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
125ml olive oil
1 tablespoon lime juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons of raspberry jam
175g icing sugar
75g dairy and soya free spread
2 tablespoons water
2. In a large bowl mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
3. In a small bowl combine the water, olive oil, lime juice and vanilla extract.
4. Mix wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until blended, do not over mix – small lumps are ok.
5. Pour mixture into cake tin and bake for around 30 minutes or until you can insert a tooth pick and it comes out dry.
6. Sieve icing sugar into a large bowl and mix with the water and dairy & soya free spread until all smooth.
7. Once the cake is cool, spread a layer of jam over the top of the cake and top with the buttercream icing.
This is the wheat & gluten free flour I used to make this cake, so far I’ve found this flour to be the best or least stodgy of the wheat free flours I’ve tried.
