Gluten Free Vanilla Bean Pound Cake

I love all the holiday treats, but boy my tummy usually is not happy after all those bake goods. Gluten is not always my friend, like we hang for a cookie or two, but after awhile,  she start getting suspect and all. LOL.

So I decided to make this wonderful Gluten Free Vanilla Bean Pound Cake. I was a little scared because a lot of the times I buy gluten free flour blends and they taste like cardboard or just nasty. This time around I made my own blend, since I am a little more educated about gluten flours and how to use them to get the results you want.

I hope you enjoy this recipe.

  • 1 cup Sweet White Rice Flour
  • 1/2 cup Sorghum Flour
  • 1/4 Potato Starch
  • 2 tsp Baking Powder
  • 1 tsp Xanthan Gum
  • 1 cup Butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup Granulated Sugar
  • 4 Eggs
  • half of a vanilla bean (de seed the bean add to the mixture)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla


Beat the butter until creamy and smooth. Add the sugar and beat into the butter until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each one. Add the vanilla beans and vanilla, blend until completely incorporated.In a separate bowl, combine the flours, potato starch, xanthan gum and baking powder and blend together with a whisk. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and blend until fully mixed. Spread into a greased 9-inch bread pan. Bake for 60 minutes at 350°F. Cool for about 10 minutes. Remove cake from pan and cool completely.
