How would one go about changing a cake recipe to make it gluten free?
Here are some tips on changing a cake recipe to make it gluten free. If a recipe calls for a cup of flour, substitute an alternative flour. If the flour weights 125 grams, it will probably take less flour in the alternative flour. It is better to use brown sugar instead of granulated sugar. Replace some of the liquid with honey or maple syrup. Also, add more liquid. Look for baking powder made with calcium, not aluminum and make sure the baking powder is gluten free.
