    **Jubes**'s Note:

    Posting this cake for those who are looking for a cake that is gluten, dairy, egg and nut free. For allergies or food intolerances be sure to read all product labelling and be sure to buy flours that are suitable. This recipe uses a ready mixed gluten-free flour blend that has added gums for baking qualities. If you use a blend that does not have any added gums or gluten-free stabiliser then add in one teaspoon of xantahan or guar gum with the flour. I use ORGRAN brand flour and this is from one of their magazines. Orgran is gluten, dairy, nut, egg free and is vegan diet suitable. As stated - use a general purpose BLENDED gluten-free flour blend for this recipe---this recipe has not been developed for use with coconut flour or almond meal.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 10



    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 1/2 cups plain flour (use a typical blended general purpose gluten-free plain flour mix -as stated in the intro)
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 1/3 cup oil (I use vegetable oil)
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 teaspoon gluten free baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon gluten-free bicarbonate of soda
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla
    • 1 tablespoon vinegar or 1 tablespoon orange juice


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 180°C Oil and line a round cake tin. (I use 20cm/8inch pan- but smaller or larger will just vary the height of the cake).
    2. 2
      Mix the dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Use an egg whisk to aerate- their is no need to sift the dry ingredients.
    3. 3
      Using a mixing jug, beat the oil, vinegar, vanilla and water together. Mix well.
    4. 4
      Make a well in the flour mix and add the wet mix. Beat this together slowly and when mixed through beat with a wooden spoon for a couple of minutes.
    5. 5
      Pour the mixture into the prepared tin.The mixture should be the consistency of a thick batter. Cook 45-60 minutes.
    6. 6
      When cooked, remove the cake from the oven and allow the cake to cool in the tin for 5-10 minutes before turning out to cool.
    7. 7
      Decorate as desired.

      Fantastic!! A big WOW when I took it out of the oven. Perfect recipe, it freezes well too. It's the first spong cake I have made that doesn't look like a pancake! Been trying to find a wheat free sponge cake that works and this does and tasts good too. I used sunflower oil as that is all I had as it doesn't state any particular oil to use in the recipe. Is this right I wonder? Would a lighter oil make a lighter sponge? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

      Add me to the enthusiastic 5 star reviews! This is just amazing!!! I used my homemade gluten free blend with xanthan gum, vegetable oil, and vinegar and followed the recipe using an 8" pan. The batter didn't quite come out as thick as described for me, but I had carefully beaten to combine and then used a wooden spoon as directed, so I decided to go ahead and proceed rather than risk overbeating it. It came out perfectly at 45 minutes, a lovely light golden color, holding its shape perfectly. The inside is soft and fluffy, while the outside has a crispier texture to it. It tastes wonderful too. Mine had no grittiness - I think the starting flour is key to what the result is. Combining the dry ingredients with a whisk was also an excellent touch, really distributing them evenly. Thank you SO MUCH for sharing this. ZWT8

      I have just got this out of the oven and it is bloomin' fantastic. It has risen perfectly and looks like a normal sponge cake instead of a flat thing. Clever Jubes. Thanks!
