This gluten-free cake recipe is so simple and yet so delicious. It is moist and tender, just as you would expect a Victoria Sandwich cake to be. The best part is it is done in one bowl and is perfect every time, no matter how good (or bad ;)) your baking skills are.
To get a good quality gluten-free cake is not easy, even though I have to admit that the options are getting better. Still, most of the time you will get a flourless orange cake or chocolate mouse, both not my favorites. So to come up with a gluten-free recipe that is SUPER easy to make and doesn’t require any proper baking skills makes me very happy.

Is it suitable for Coeliacs?
The recipe uses white rice flour and is naturally gluten-free and so is suitable for coeliacs as are all recipes on A Is For Apple AU. Enjoy!
Can I use any other gluten-free flour?
You can use gluten-free all-purpose flour instead of rice flour. However the other flour varieties such as almond, buckwheat or cocconut won’t work.
Can I make this cake sugar-free?
Short answer is, no I can’t. I do not use sugar in my cooking veru often, but in baking sugar is responsible for moisture in items such as cakes, muffins, brownies. If you want to reduce sugar, you can use fresh berries with fresh coconut cream instead of jam.
How to store/freeze
This cakes will stay fresh for upto 4-5 days in the fridge if stored in an airtight container. You can also slice the cake and freeze it, once again in an airtight container. Take cake pieces out of the freezer 2-3 hours befor serving and defrost them at room temperauture. The cake will be nice and fluffy.
How to decorate
I am not big on decorating cakes and only just dusted some icing sugar on top, but you can do any kind of decoration you like. This cake is quite firm and stable and is a perfect base for any birthday or even wedding cake.
My favorite part about this recipe is that you just put all the ingredients in one bowl or a food processor, whizz, and bake it. Done! If I can do it, you can do it too! And if you don’t have time to bake it now, don’t forget to pin it for later.
