Gluten Free Cream Cheese Cake with Buttercream Icing

Gluten Free Cream Cheese Cake with Buttercream Icing

Gluten Free Cream Cheese Cake | Hello Gluten Free

I spotted a cake recipe I really wanted to try recently.  After I had baked it and was letting it cool the cake shrunk to half its height.  What?!  I reviewed the recipe and decided I could do better.  So I added a few ingredients and deleted what I felt was not necessary.  Today’s recipe is what I came up with.  First of all it has all my favorite ingredients –  lots of butter, sugar and vanilla.  The flavor is very rich.  Then add the buttercream icing and you have a winner.  Rachel and her husband were my official taste testers.  They had it for breakfast, lunch and dinner , on the same day.  I would have to say that is a good testimonial of how delicious it is!

    I made this with Glutino flour and it turned out great! It reminded me of Sara Lee’s pound cake (from my old gluten eating days). I didn’t make the icing as I didn’t think the cake need any extra, and that says a lot as I am usually an icing fiend.
