Gluten free sponge cake recipe

  •  This is an adaptation of one I found on recipe zaar. I have been searching for the perfect white cake recipe for birthdays for years, and it was perfect! Tasted just like angel food cake.  Still doesn't have a lot of height when it cooks, but doesn't weigh 10 lbs either, like most GF cakes.
  • 1/4 cup cor starch
  • 1/2 c gluten free flour mix with NO Xanthan gum
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 3 eggs separated
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla 


  1. Sift corn starch, flour, baking powder and salt together.

  2. Beat egg whites until stiff but not dry.

  3. Beat  egg yolks into the egg whites.

  4. Gradually beat in sugar until mixture forms a figure 8.

  5. add vanilla
    Fold in the dry ingredients.
  6. Divide into 2 well greased 20 cm (8") sandwich pans.

  7. Bake at 180 C or 350 F for about 20 minutes.

  8. Remove from pans and cool on wire rack.

  9. When cool, top one with whipped cream and jam (jelly).

  10. Place the other on top and dust with icing sugar.
