Gluten Free Dairy Free Gooey Butter Cake

Bottom Layer:

1 1/2 cups Carol’s ALL PURPOSE Gluten Free Flour
1½ teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon kosher or fine sea salt
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup lite coconut milk (the lite has less of a coconut flavor than full fat -shake can well before measuring)
½ cup Vegenaise
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract


2 large eggs, at room temperature
8 ounces Dairy Free cream cheese alternative, at room temperature

1 pound powdered sugar plus more for dusting
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
½ cup soy free Earth Balance, melted


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly spray a 9x13x2 inch glass or ceramic baking dish with gluten-free, non-stick cooking spray.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt and espresso powder.

In a separate mixing bowl whisk together the sugar, coconut milk, Vegenaise and vanilla. Add the coconut milk mixture to the dry ingredients and stir or whisk to combine.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and let sit for about 15 minutes or so, it will become less liquid as it sits.

In the mixing bowl of an electric mixer, preferably fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the eggs and cream cheese alternative on medium high speed until smooth, about 2 minutes. Turn the mixer to low and gradually add the powdered sugar, mix until combined, scarping the sides of the bowl if necessary. Add the vanilla, mix well and then gradually add in the melted Earth Balance.

Bake for 40 – 50 minutes or until the cake look set but not dry. Let cool and dust the gluten free
Gooey Butter Cake with more powdered sugar.
