Hey ya'll!

I got a request to make a vegan bundt cake for an upcoming work party.. And I know one of the ladies on the team I'm celebrating is GF. So I thought it'd be awesome to be able to bake something that she could also enjoy.

Google is scaring me a bit - from what I see GF/Vegan bundts can be tricky, in getting them to bake all the way through. And I can't find too many recipes for them either..

Any suggestions? Or tried and true recipes? I was going to get a GF flour mix (or even cake mix) and see what I could do with that.

thank you!!!!!

Does it have to be a bundt cake, or are you just hankering to use a pretty bundt pan?

It has to be a bundt cake! (special request - a bit of a running gag in the work we were doing...! ETA: the office even chipped in to purchase a bundt pan - didn't previously own one!)

I don't know about gf bundt cake recipes-but if all else fails, could you make a bundt cake for everyone and maybe a separate g/f cake (possibly in a bundt pan?)?

I was thinking that, too, possibly doing two different ones.. that may be the route to go! I wonder if a pound cake recipe would do well in a bundt...?

Would pouring normal cake batter into a bundt be dumb? I feel like from what I can see online, yes, but I don't know why... or rather, what I can do to adjust the recipe so it may not fail.

You can absolutely pour "normal" cake batter into a bundt pan. Why would that be dumb?

But here is a great recipe that my mother in law has been making for years--since veganized and de-glutenized for our family. She uses flax eggs and Bob's Red Mill all-purpose GF flour.
http://southernfood.about.com/od/pears/r/r70204c.htm

It calls for Asian pears, but apples or still-crispy pears are good too if you don't have those.
It looks really pretty in the bundt pan. Doesn't really need an icing or glaze, but a quick sift of powdered sugar looks nice and can hide any flaws or bumps. Just be sure to grease the pan well before you start, and use rice flour or more GF AP flour to flour the pan too. That way the cake won't stick and will turn out nicely.

I asked because often batters intended to be baked in a particular size baking pan or tin aren't always transferable to other types without some complications, or needing to adjust the recipe somehow.

thank you for the recipe rec!! it sounds very nice.

Ah, OK--I forgot to think about volume. As far as the actual batter itself, though, there's not usually a difference.
