Movies Theme - Kerri's DessertThis recipe from the Movies dinner was sourced from Betsylife, and was converted to gluten free.

I made the following changes:

  1. Switch 140g GF flour mix for each cup of flour in the original recipe. (I’ve been using a flour mix based on one by Pete and Kelli Bronski – see below. I have two of their GF cookbooks and everything I’ve made from them has been amazingly good. They also have a blog and share recipes at http://noglutennoproblem.blogspot.com.au )
  2. Add an extra egg
  3. Add 1 tsp baking powder
  4. Add 1/4 tsp xanthan gum for every cup of flour
  5. Let the cake batter stand for 10 minutes before adding the figs. This gives the flours time to hydrate so the batter thickens, helping to keep the figs from sinking straight to the bottom.

The gluten free cake conversion tips are from FOOD52 and King Arthur Flour.

Flour mix, approximate weights (from Kelli and Pete Bronski):

  • 160g brown rice flour
  • 90g sorghum flour (I used sweet white sorghum)
  • 90g corn flour
  • 40g potato starch (or tapioca flour)
  • 17g potato flour
  • 1tsp xanthan gum

[…] To finish, Kerri was inspired by the bundt cake in My Big Fat Greek Wedding to make a Bourbon, vanilla and fig bundt cake. […]
