    **Jubes**'s Note:

    This is the easiest Gluten Free Cake I have ever made. It always turns out great and in my household there is never any left the next day. As with all Gluten Free cakes it is best eaten the day it is baked. This cake tastes like a sponge. It has a soft and light texture. Serve for an easy morning tea, dress it up for a birthday cake or make two cakes and fill with strawberry jam and freshly whipped cream

      This is a super versatile cake recipe- you can add other ingredients to make lemon poppy seed bread, banana bread, chocolate cake, and corn bread muffins.

      Instead of gluten-free self-raising flour-I used brown or white rice flour. I subbed tapioca starch flour for corn starch. Didn't use eggs-used 2 tblsp ground flax seed (stirred in 6 tblsp hot water). Cut the sugar to 1/2 c. Increase baking powder to 1.5-2 tsp (depending on what I'm making). True to its name-it always tastes great!
