Domata Gluten Free Pumpkin Roll Cake

This was my first attempt at making a rolled cake.  It was surprisingly easy and looks fancy!  The cake is extremely moist and the cream cheese filling adds a nice creamy texture.

Ingredients:

Cake:

  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup Domata Recipe Ready  gluten free flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Filling:

  • 8 ounces Cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tablespoons Butter, softened
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Preparation:

In large bowl, combine eggs and sugar, beating with an electric mixer until thick and light yellow in color. Add pumpkin and lemon juice, mixing until blended.

In separate bowl, combine Domata Recipe Ready gluten free flour, baking powder, spices and salt. Add to egg mixture, mix until just blended. Spread batter into greased and waxed-paper lined 10-by-15-inch jelly-roll pan.

Bake at 350 ° for 15 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool for 15 minutes. Place cake on clean tea towel sprinkled liberally with powdered sugar. Cool 10 minutes longer. From 10- inch side, roll cake up in towel. Set aside.

While cake is cooling in towel, prepare filling. Beat together cream cheese and butter; stir in powdered sugar and vanilla and blend until smooth.

Unroll cake. Evenly spread filling over cake. Roll up cake (without the towel). Wrap in plastic wrap. Cover and chill at least 1 hour. Slice before serving. Keep leftover slices refrigerated. This pumpkin roll freezes well, and makes about 10 servings.

Gluten Free Sponge Cake with Summer Berries

26 Aug

Domata Sponge Cake

 

Ingredients:

4 Tablespoons butter

2/3 cup sugar

4 egg yolks

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

4 egg whites

pinch of salt

2 Tablespoons sugar

3/4 cup Domata Gluten Free Recipe Ready Flour

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Butter and flour the cake pan.

Melt the butter and set aside to cool.

Gradually beat the sugar into the egg yolks, add the vanilla, and continue beating for several minutes until mixture is thick and pale yellow.

Beat the egg whites and salt together in a separate bowl until soft peaks are formed; sprinkle in the sugar and beat until stiff peaks are formed. Scoop one fourth of the egg whites over the top of the egg yolk and sugar mixture. Add one fourth of the Domata Gluten Free Recipe Ready Flour, and delicately fold in until partially blended. Then add one third of the remaining egg whites, add one third of the remaining flour.  Fold until partially blended, and repeat with half of each, then the last of each and half of the tepid, melted butter. When partially blended, fold in the rest of the butter but omit the milky residue at the bottom of the pan. Do not over mix; the egg whites must retain as much volume as possible.

 

Turn into prepared cake pan, tiling pan to run batter to the rim all around. Set in middle level of preheated oven and bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Cake is done when it has puffed, is lightly brown, and has just begun to show a faint line of shrinkage from the edges of the pan.

For this version, I cut the cake in half, spread macerated berries and whipped cream on the first layer.  Add the second layer and top with more berries.

Gluten Free Strawberry Tres Leches Cake

26 Aug

Domata Tres Leches Cake

 

 

Note: This sweet Latin American classic provides a lush backdrop for peak-season strawberries. Meant to be made ahead and served chilled, it’s ideal for casual summer entertaining. When strawberries have run their course, try it with peaches and blackberries.

Serves 12

For the cake:

• 1/2 c. butter (1 stick) melted and cooled, plus more for greasing baking dish, divided

• 1 1/2 c. Domata Recipe Ready Flour

• 1 tsp. baking powder

• 1/2 tsp. coarse salt

• 5 eggs

• 3/4 c. sugar

• 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

For the milk mixture:

• |1 (14 oz.) can sweetened condensed milk

• 1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk

• 1 c. half-and-half

To serve:

• 1 1/2 quarts strawberries

• Sugar to taste, if desired

• 2 c. heavy cream

• 1/4 c. sugar

• 1 tsp. vanilla extract

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter a 9- by 13-inch baking pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk Domata Recipe Ready flour, baking powder and salt.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat eggs and 3/4 cup sugar on high speed until thick and pale, about 4 minutes. Add vanilla and beat to combine. With mixer on low, gradually add flour mixture and beat to combine. With rubber spatula, fold in melted butter, taking care to deflate mixture as little as possible.

Pour batter into prepared baking pan, and bake till top is golden and a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, 20 to 30 minutes, rotating pan halfway through baking. (Note: A metal baking pan may bake cake faster than a glass or ceramic; let your eye and a toothpick be your guide.)

In a medium bowl, whisk together sweetened condensed milk, evaporated milk and half-and-half. Poke warm cake all over with a wooden skewer or toothpick, then pour milk mixture over top. Let cake sit at room temperature for 15 minutes, then cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight.

To serve: Hull and slice strawberries. Sweeten with a tablespoon or more sugar if needed, and allow berries to macerate in a little sugar for a few minutes. In a medium bowl, use an electric mixer to beat cream, 1/4 cup sugar and vanilla to stiff peaks. Distribute berries and their juice evenly over cake, then spread whipped cream over the top. (You can do this several hours ahead.) Alternatively, “frost” cake with whipped cream, and serve strawberries on the side.
