THE BEST GLUTEN FREE CAKE

THIS RECIPE CAN BE USED AS THE BASIS FOR MANY DIFFERENT FLAVORS OF CAKES. ADDING A CUP OF FRESH OR FROZEN BERRIES, OR CHUNKS OF APPLES, OR COCOA, OR NUTS, OR RAISINS, OR LEMON. OK I KNOW I'M GETTING OUT OF HAND, BUT THE OPTIONS ARE SO MANY AND SO DELICIOUS THAT I GET EXCITED.

1 1/4 CUP BROWN RICE FLOUR OR 1 CUP WHITE RICE FLOUR AND 1/2 CUP POTATO STARCH
3/4 TEASPOON BAKING SODA (NOT BAKING POWDER)
1/2 TEASPOON SALT
1 CUP YOGURT OR 1 CUP MILK WITH 1 TEASPOON DISTILLED VINEGAR
1/4 - 1/3 CUP OLIVE OIL
2 EGGS

DO NOT OVER MIX. BAKE IN A GREASED AND FLOURED 8 INCH BAKING PAN. BAKE AT 400 - 425 DEGREES TILL TOOTHPICK INSERTED IN THE CENTER COMES OUT CLEAN. ABOUT 15-18 MINUTES.

OK HERE IS WHY I GOT EXCITED. TO CHANGE THE FLAVOR A LITTLE AND MAKE IT SPECIAL YOU COULD ADD...
1/4 CUP COCOA AND 3/4 CUP SUGAR
OR
SUBSTITUTE 1 1/2 CUPS OF APPLESAUCE FOR THE MILK
OR
1 TEASPOON CINNAMON WITH OR WITHOUT THE APPLESAUCE
OR
VANILLA FLAVOR ABOUT 1 OR 2 TEASPOONS
OR
A FEW TABLESPOONS OF LEMON JUICE AND 1/2 CUP SUGAR
OR
2 TABLESPOONS GROUND FLAX AND 1/3 CUP HONEY
OR
1/2 CUP BROWN SUGAR
OR
1 TEASPOON CINNAMON 2 TABLESPOONS COCOA AND 1/2 CUP BROWN SUGAR
OR
3 TABLESPOONS ALMOND MEAL AND 1/4 CUP OF HONEY
OR
1 CUP OF BLUEBERRIES
OR
1 CUP OF STRAWBERRIES
OR
2 MASHED BANANAS
WE COULD GO ON AND ON BUT I THINK YOU GET THE IDEA. JUST USE YOUR IMAGINATION AND HAVE SOME DELICIOUS FUN!
HAVE A HAPPY, HEALTHY, GLUTEN FREE DAY!
