We made this pound cake tonight and it was delicious!  I make half of the recipe and that was the perfect amount for our family of four.  The only thing I didn’t like about this recipe is that you have to make the CI flour ahead of time.  I prefer to mix up the day that I bake.

Here is a link to the recipe: Gluten Free Mom

Here are the measurements for half the recipe:

1/2 cup + 8 tsp + 2 Tbsp. of CI flour mix

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/4 tsp. salt

1/8 tsp. xanthan gum

1/2 cup + 2 Tbsp sugar

1 Tbsp lemon zest

1/2 Tbsp lemon juice (I used a whole tablespoon)

2 eggs

2 oz. cream cheese (I used whipped cream cheese- 5 1/2 Tbsp.)

3/4 tsp. vanilla

4 Tbsp. melted butter


Mix the wet ingredients and pour into the dry ingredients.  Blend them together well.

Bake at 350 in a loaf pan for 15 minutes. Turn down the heat to 325 and continue to bake for 30 minutes.  I thought the cake was a little dry and so I would decrease the time even more next time.

Glaze the cake with 1/4 cup powered sugar with 1 tsp. lemon juice. I had to add a bit of water.
