3 cups Better Batter Gluten Free Flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups sugar
¾ cup oil
2 tablespoon vanilla bean paste
4 large eggs
1 cup rice or coconut milk at room temperature
Preheat the oven to 325°F. Lightly grease two 9″ round cake pans or two muffins pans.
Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, use an electric mixer to beat together the sugar, oil, and vanilla until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time; the mixture should become quite fluffy. Beat in the milk, at low speed, alternately with the dry ingredients, adding about 1/3 of each at a time, and ending with the dry ingredients.
Once all ingredients are combined and batter is ready, scoop the batter into the prepared pans. Bake the cake for about 25 to 30 minutes until done and a cake tester (or toothpick) inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from the oven, and cool for 5 to 10 minutes before turning out of the pan to cool on a rack. Cool completely before frosting.
