Yellow Cake + Life!

It’s been awhile, hasn’t it?? We are on a wild ride at my house for a couple months – my husband just joined me in my work-from-home, nutrition business and I am loving doing this with him!! There has been lots of other stuff too – we were given permission to set up a personal garden at our health food store (so thrilled about that) and there have been a few bumps in the road. The main challenge was the power situation – fortunately, my husband is handy, so he has worked hard on that. We are just about done!

Anywho – I thought I would share with you my daughter’s 5th birthday cake, gluten-free of course! Here you are!



Yellow Cake


  • 1/2  cup butter or coconut oil
  • 3/4 c. sugar
  • 2  lg. eggs
  • 1 and 1/2 c. gluten free flour blend
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 c. buttermilk
  • 1 tsp. real vanilla extract
  • optional – 1/2 tsp almond extract


Note: Preheat oven to 325 and grease (I use coconut oil) 2 8” round pans or 1 pan that is 9” by 13”

  1. In large mixing bowl, beat butter til smooth. Gradually beat in sugar.
  2. Add eggs, beating after each once.
  3. In a separate bowl, blend dry ingredients.
  4. In a measuring cup, whisk together the buttermilk, and extracts.
  5. With the mixer on low speed, alternate beating the wet and then the dry ingredients, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients.
  6. Bake 20-25 min. for round pans, 25-30 for rectangular pan.
  7. Do the toothpick test.
  8. Cool in pans for 10 min. (If using round pans, after 10 min. flip onto a plate or cooling rack.)
  9. Allow to cool completely, then frost and eat.
