Tuesdays with Dorie- French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze

What a great choice this week of the French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze, by Liliana of My Cookbook Addiction. This cake was a breeze to put together, and just delicious! I decided to depart from my regular gluten free flour mix ,Pamela's, and try some other grains to convert this cake. (I know gettin crazy, huh? ha!) I substituted 1/2 cup sweet white rice flour, 1/4 cup potato starch & 1/4 tapioca flour (as well as 1 tsp of Xanthan gum) for all purpose flour.
It worked like a charm, and had the perfect consistency of regular cake! I was thrilled... Because I made mini- loafs it only needed to be baked for 35 minutes. I had my doubts about using the lemon marmalade, but it was very tasty. This cake would be a terrific addition to a brunch....and will most definitely be repeat. Thanks, Liliana for a wonderful choice! For the recipe please visit Liliana's site.

Another great flour to use is quinoa flour and sorghum flours.

They are wonderful substitutes.

So creative with the flours. I will have to send your blog address to a friend who is going gluten free for health reasons. I know she will enjoy it. Great job on the cake. Pretty.

Banjo said...

Thanks Tea Lady. :) I took a gluten free bread class this weekend, so I will have some fun posts to come!

Erin- Actually found the lemon marmalade at Albertsons, which i complain about all the time. Go figure, I never go in there...had to stop in a pinch and they actually had what I needed! Wonders never cease! ;)
