We have never been satisfied with any of the yellow cake recipes we have come up with, until this one. Betsy is the true genius behind this cake. It tastes like a cake mix cake. I served this at a party for my daughters and my brother said that he liked it better than any gluten cake he has ever had. He probably ate 5 pieces that night and he doesn't have to eat gluten free! -Kirsti

Yields1 Serving
Prep Time50 minsCook Time30 minsTotal Time1 hr 20 mins
 ¾ cup butter
 3 eggs
 1 tsp xanthan gum
 2 ½ tsp baking powder
 ½ tsp salt
 1 ¼ cups sugar
 1 sm. pkg. vanilla instant pudding mix *
 1 ½ tsp vanilla
 1 ¼ cups milk
1

Preheat oven to 375°

2

Allow butter and eggs to stand at room temp for 30 minutes. Combine flour, xanthan gum, baking powder, and salt in a bowl.

3

Cream butter, pudding mix, and sugar for 2 to 3 minutes. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each. (I think this keeps the butter from clumping up like cream cheese will if you add too much liquid at once). Beat in vanilla. Alternately add flour mix and milk (ending with flour). Pour into prepared pans.

4

Bake 20 - 25 minutes for 9-inch rounds

25-30 minutes for a 9 x 13 pan

15 - 20 minutes for a 13 x 18 sheet cake pan.

Variations
5

Use strawberry crème pudding mix for Valentine's cupcakes, it is quite yummy. Use pineapple or coconut pudding-poke lots of holes in it after baking and pour a can of sweetened condensed milk on top. Not good FOR you, but it will sure TASTE good!
