gluten-free king cake

February 8, 2013

Didn't you kneaux? You have Fat Tuesday duties to tend to.  At the top of your list: A king cake, of course. 

I've been dreaming of a gluten-free king cake for years and decided this year that I'd wait no longer. Clearly, no one had to bamboozle me into working up a gluten-free version of this Mardi Gras-mandated dessert.  This was practically my life's purpose.

Spiced and moist.  Indulgent and lordly. This is that and these are those.



Slightly lemon-y, partly cinnamon-y.  Likely the best smash-bang-fusion that ever happened.  I love when a cake feels like a big ol' party.  

It's true.  This isn't exactly a traditional king cake.  But, rest assure you'll be laisser le bon temps rouler after one slice.

I wonder if sweet brown rice flour would work. Must try it out, looks delish and not funky tasting.
