A gluten free vanilla mug cake recipe with no egg for a moist and tender single-serving yellow cake in your microwave in just minutes.
Choosing a gluten free flour blend for this recipe
When I was first developing this recipe, I used a more traditional all purpose gluten free flour blend that already contains xanthan gum in the blend (I used Better Batter original blend). It made a lovely, high-rising cake and tasted good. You can use it in this recipe with success.
But the texture wasn’t quite as tender as I’d like it to be. It was also a bit more dry, since that flour blend (like most all purpose gluten free flour blends) absorbs a lot of moisture.
