This gluten free version of red velvet cake has the soft texture everyone loves, plus a little extra cocoa for good measure! This is the cake I am having made for my wedding. Works well for cupcakes too.
Easy to make, taste is good too. Gluten free baking is hard, due to the flours it can often taste chalky or floury. This recipe did have that slight taste but it was super moist which was nice. I love the use of applesauce. I made cupcakes instead of a cake because of the event I was making them for. Took about 14 minutes in the oven, rotating the sheet halfway through. I topped the cupcakes with a cream cheese frosting and they were extremely delicious. Thank you for sharing this recipe it will definitely be made again! - 11 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
My daughter-in-law made this recipe for her daughter's 2nd family birthday party. She made it into cupcakes and they were delicious! They did not taste gluten free and were moist. - 10 Aug 2011 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Our entire family loves these as cupcakes! The recipe is great as is but personally I have made some shortcuts that make them easier and turn out great! I use JULES AP GF flour mix instead of all the different flours listed (2 1/2 cups), eliminate the xanthan gum as JULES has that covered in her flour mix. and I use the pretty cupcake liners for the muffin cups for easy clean-up. To make them dairy-free I use almond or soy milk + 1 Tbsp vinegar to = the buttermilk. I also am now adding 2 Tbsp of "cake enhancer" by King Arthur Flour to make them stay fresh longer. It is a great product and gluten-free. Thanks for the great recipe! - 01 Feb 2013 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
