This cake is dry and does not have much flavor.
However, if you add 1/2 cup Orange Juice and half an orange worth of zest to it it is FABULOUSE!
My husband has Celiac's and over the years I've yet to find a really delicious vanilla/yellow cake recipe. It was his birthday last week and I wanted to try and use the rice flour I had on hand for something. I went off of what the other reviewer said about it being dry and flavorless, so I made some adjustments. Added: 1/4 cup of milk 2 1/2 teaspoons of sweetened condensed milk I didn't have cane sugar so I replaced it with: 1/4 cup brown sugar 1/4 cup white sugar The cake turned out moist, dense, and delicious! It's actually one of the best cakes I've made with or without gluten, it was a big hit! I topped it with homemade cream cheese icing. This will now be my go-to for cake. It would be really good with strawberries and whipped cream too...
