  1. since intolerant to gluten I have to substitute the flour

    will it work?

  2. Rozalia – thanks for stopping by. I’ve never made this recipe with gluten/wheat free flour before so I can’t say it will or won’t work. Though I don’t see any reason why it won’t.

    I found a similar (gluten free) recipe at the following link:

  3. Yes it will work the same if you do a recipe with Gluten/Wheat Free flour, I made them for my son who has Celiac Disease.

  4. Thanks so much for sharing Glenda. I hope your son liked the cake!

  5. Hi Ruth. Do you think this recipe can hold up under icing and fondant? Is it sturdy like a typical pound cake (with eggs) or softer? Thanks so much!!

  6. Tara – I “think” it would hold up. I would say it would depend upon how many layers of cake and of fondant, how many decorations are added etc.

    A basic cake – yes probably. A several tiered wedding cake – I don’t know.

    It is pretty sturdy. Though I’m not sure if it’s as sturdy as regular pound cake. I think the longer you cook it – more well done than underdone – the sturdier it will be.

    Hope that helps!

  7. Recipe looks good. I’ll give it a try. I can’t seem to find a print button so I can print the recipe without all the other stuff around it?

  8. Plyllis – thank you for stopping by and for commenting. And thanks for bringing the print button feature to our attention. You’ll see now that at the end of the post you can print or create a pdf of this post. Hope you enjoy the recipe!

    My son is allergic to milk, soy, nuts, eggs and many other items as well. I’m going to try this with rice milk for his birthday cake–I hope it works!

  10. Will this work with whole wheat flour and still taste great?

  11. Hope you enjoy Liese Van Lingen!

  12. Nini – I have not tried this recipe with whole wheat flour so I can’t say for sure whether it will “taste great”.

    It’s based on a pound cake recipe which usually is dense and sweet so whole wheat flour might take away from that.

    You could try using all purpose white whole wheat flour. That might work better than general whole wheat flour.

    Hope that helps!

  13. This was fantastic, thank you! I am wondering if you’ve ever made this into a double layer cake? I need to make a square double layer with two 8×8 pans. I am trying to figure out if I can use the recepie as is or if I should do one and a half batch????

  14. Cate,

    No I have not tried this as a double layer cake. However, I would personally try one an a half batches. If you find you have too much batter, put the rest in muffin tins.

    Hope that helps!

  15. i just made this cake, using a gluten free flour mix and a splash of coca cola instead of the vinegar. it worked great! i have been in a cake rut lately, and this cake is perfect. thank you!
