Gluten-Free Vanilla Bundt Cake with Vanilla Bean Glaze

Gluten-Free Vanilla Bundt Cake recipe with Vanilla Bean Glaze

I am a fan of bundt cakes. They only require one pan. They are easy to transport since you don’t have to worry about the layers slipping. You just drizzle glaze over the top without fear of ending up on Cake Wrecks. And since they are not coated in an inch of icing you can pretend it is a slightly healthier dessert.

gluten-Free Vanilla Bundt Cake with Vanilla Bean Glaze

This cake is dense with a moist crumb. It has a rich vanilla flavor and is topped with a vanilla bean glaze. If you don’t have vanilla beans, then double the amount of vanilla in the glaze.

As in other recipes, I recommend using guar gum in cakes. You can substitute xanthan gum if you wish, but you get a “doughier” batter.

  1. I love all your cake recipes, Alea! This one looks wonderful and I can’t wait to share it on All Gluten-Free Desserts. :-)


  2. Your Vanilla Bundt Cake looks beautiful! I totally agree with you about bundt cakes – they are my favourite cakes to make.

  3. I’m confused. In the ingredients list you have baking powder but in the directions you say baking soda. Which am I suppose to use?
