Without a doubt the best gluten free cake ever - so flavorful and moist and the texture is incredible. It rises well and has a wonderful tender crumb. My entire family, even those not on the GF diet, love it. I agree that this can be served without hesitation to anyone GF or not. Thanks for the great recipe!

If I could give you ten stars I would! This cake was amazing. I love bundt cakes and this is probably one of the best I've ever had! My husband calls it the $40 cake. Not because it costs that much to make, but because you could easily sell it for that much!

Well, I wasn't sure about this one at first. I baked it yesterday, and then had a slice about 5 hours after it cooled. It still had a slightly chewy texture, and the spice was a little overpowering. So I decided to allow it to rest overnight, give the spices a chance to mingle, and then try again this morning. Big difference! The texture was that of a wheat cake...no difference! And the spices were perfect. Now I did make some alterations based on what I had on hand...that's what GF cooking is all about anyway. I only had prepared pumpkin pie filling leftover (it had actually been baked as a pudding). So I only used one cup of that as it was already sweetened with honey and had egg in it, and then 2 cups of applesauce. I used one cup of Bob's Red Mill all--purpose baking flour (which I've hated in every other recipe I've tried...it's gritty, and I don't care for the overpowering bean flavor...also makes me sleepy), and then half of another GF baking mix I made on my own. It is a mix of sorghum flour, potato starch, and almond flour...or in this case, since I was out, Pamela's pancake/baking mix in place of the almond (almond is prevalent in her mix). In place of sugar I used xylitol and a touch of molasses, and I cut back on the amounts since I was using the prepared pumpkin pie mix. For that same reason, I also cut back on spices. It turned out wonderful...I've been eating it with TruWhip dairy-free whipped topping. :-) Oh, and subbed in light olive oil for canola. Thanks for sharing!

Great gluten free cake! It turned out so moist and no would would ever know it was GF. In place of the rice flour mix I used 1 1/2 c Bob Redmill's GF baking mix, 1/2 c rice flour and 1tsp xanthan gum. I topped with a glaze made with powdered sugar, butter, milk and vanilla!

Awesome! I made this recipe for a meeting where one of the participants must have gluten-free food. The meeting was cancelled, so DH was my test subject. He loved it, and wants me to make this recipe again. If I didn't tell him it was gluten-free, he never would have known. Very moist, great texture, not rubbery. Excellent recipe for everyone.

YUMMY! I made this today making the same flour changes as cooking4five because that is what I had on hand. This is a fabulous GF cake (you cannot tell it's GF, perfect texture and flavors) I did add a drizzle of real maple syrup to the batter and also to the glaze which was a nice touch and I also used less oil than called for. HIGHLY recommend this recipe, THANKS FOR POSTING!

I just made this, very easy and very good. I cant wait for my gluten free sisters to try this! The only thing I did different is made a cream cheese frosting for it. Yummy

This was delicious! I made it for a get-together where the hostess cannot have wheat/gluten. She loved it and so did all the other guests... and they never knew the difference. I made this according to your recipe, except for one difference. I only had one cup of rice flour so I added 1/2 c of cornstarch and 1/2 c of wheat-free baking mix (mostly bean flours). It turned out beautifully. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This cake was wonderfully moist and everyone at our family party loved it. It was great in the evening and just as good for breakfast the next morning! I added an easy caramel glaze to it and it was just fantastic!
