2¾ cups sugar
1¼ cups butter flavored shortening or dairy free butter, softened
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cups gluten free all purpose flour
1½ tsp. xanthan gum (if not in flour)
1 tsp. baking powder
¼ tsp. salt
1 cup dairy free milk (rice or soy)
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine sugar, butter, vanilla and eggs. Beat on low until mixed, about 1 minute, scraping bowl constantly.
Beat on high speed for 5 minutes, occasionally scraping the bowl.
Mix gluten free flour, xanthan gum (if using), baking powder and salt. Beat into egg mixture alternately with milk on low speed. Spread in a well-greased 10×4 inch tube pan.
Bake 70 to 80 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool 20 minutes in the pan. Then remove onto a wire rack and cool completely. Serves 8-10.
1⁄3 cup dairy free butter
2 cups powdered sugar
1½ tsp. vanilla
2-4 Tbsp. hot water
Heat dairy free butter in a saucepan until melted. Stir in powdered sugar, vanilla and 1 tablespoon water. Mix well. Add the rest of the water, 1 tablespoon at a time, until the frosting is smooth. Glazes one bundt cake or one 10 inch angel food cake.
Lemon Glaze: Starting with the Vanilla Glaze recipe, substitute 1 1⁄3 tsp. lemon juice for the vanilla and add ½ tsp. grated lemon peel to the butter.
