A friend gave me this recipe awhile back and I converted it to gluten free this morning. It is a nice and tasty gluten free cake. The conversion is easy so I'll post the recipe as written and the gluten free portion will be in the notes section.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8-inch round or 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
  2. In a medium mixing bowl, combine the flour through salt.
  3. In a measuring cup or blender container, combine the egg, yogurt, melted butter and vanilla. Whisk or pulse to combine the ingredients.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the flour mixture and mix to combine. Spoon about 2/3's of batter into prepared pan. Mix the berries with the brown sugar and spoon over batter. Top the berries with remaining batter and sprinkle with sliced almonds.
  5. Place in preheated oven and bake for 35 to 40 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for 10 minutes.
  6. While cake cools, prepare the glaze and then drizzle over cooled cake. Serve warm or at room temperature.
  7. Please note: If using frozen berries do not defrost.
  8. Gluten Free Notes: Use 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons gluten free all-purpose flour blend, 2 tablespoons modified tapioca starch and add 1/2 teaspoon xanthan gum. The gluten free version may require a few tablespoons milk to be added to the batter. Use your best judgement.

I barely had enough batter to make one layer so I put the berries on top. The cake didn't rise enough to cover the berries.

Very nice and easy to make dessert. I didn't use all of the glaze, just thought it was too much! I used a mix of blueberries and blackberries. Made for ZWT 9 and "The Apron String Travelers"
