The Joy of Cooking: Gerri’s “Sour Cream” Pound Cake

I get so much joy when I cook for others, so last Saturday I threw a little dinner party at my house with two of my close friends. There are so many positives to this:

Positives: I love to cook and bake, It makes me happy, allows me to escape the pain, I can eat a safe meal with friends, I can try out a new recipe, my friends love my cooking, and most importantly,  we always have a good time together.

Today I am going to share with you the dessert I made for the dinner party. It was a cake recipe my mom got from a friend, which I converted to be gluten/dairy free. When making the recipe I had to make some modifications {my sifter was up at school}, but it still came out great. In fact, when my mom tried the cake the next morning, she said she liked it better than her own. My friends and I enjoyed the cake as well, and I sent them home with some to enjoy the next day.

This cake might even be my favorite cake I made so far since going GF! Hope you enjoy this simple and delicious recipe!

Gerri’s “Sour Cream” Pound Cake

1 cup of soft butter (I used Earth Balance)
2 3/4 cup of evaporated cane juice
6 eggs
3 cups of sifted Jules Gluten Free Flour
1/4 tsp baking soda1 cup So Delicious Plain Coconut Milk Yogurt
1 tsp of vanilla

Cream butter and sugar until light. Add eggs one at a time, beating thoroughly after each. Sift dry ingredients three times. (Note: I did not do this, I just whisked the ingredients). Add alternately with coconut milk yogurt to first mixture, beating until smooth. Add flavoring. Pour into a prepared bundt pan.

Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 20 minutes. Cool and frost with confections sugar, thinned (I used almond milk), and flavoring (I used lemon extract). Note: You want this frosting to be thick.
