Vanilla Cake with Rum Glaze (gluten-free)

My friend Kae and I had a housewives day last weekend.  We baked some delicious gluten-free cake!  We baked 2 – 8 inch round cakes drizzled with rum glaze (so we could each have one).  Yummy!!  Hubby and I added strawberries and smiley face whipped cream to the top and it was amazing!

2 1/2 tsp GF baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1 1/4 cups milk

Pre heat oven 350 degrees

Grease 2 – 8 or 9 inch cake pans

Cream sugar, butter, and vanilla with mixer.  Add egg and mix to incorporate

Combine flour, baking powder and salt in separate bowl.

Add some flour and then some milk to creamed butter/sugar mix.  Repeat until all flour and milk are incorporated.

Divide the batter between the 2 pans.  Bake 30-35 minutes (until a wooden toothpick comes out clean).

Cool fully in pans then transfer them to wire rack.

    Yum! I’ve never tried a rum glaze before, but it sounds super delicious! So does cake, for that matter. Hmmm… sweet tooth is acting up again. 🙂
