Gluten-free, Sugar-free Strawberry Cake

Submitted by: IVORY1825

Introduction

This cake was actually good enough for my husband to steal two pieces before I iced it! The icing is a little sharp, so I may keep working on it. This cake was actually good enough for my husband to steal two pieces before I iced it! The icing is a little sharp, so I may keep working on it.

Ingredients

    1 medium ripe banana
    1 medium ripe pear
    1 1/2 cups of whole strawberries
    1/4 cup dried apricots
    2 tsp Vanilla
    1/2 cup plain, fat-free Greek style (strained) yogurt

    1 1/2 cups of gluten-free, leavened baking mix (I use Pamela's)
    1 cup corn meal (check for gluten-free)
    1 tbsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/4 tsp xantham gum
    a few dashes of salt

    2 eggs and 1 egg white

    For icing
    1/2 cup (1/2 bar) lowfat cream cheese
    1 cup whole strawberries
    1/2 tsp xantham gum

Directions

Heat apricots, pears, and strawberries in a saucepan with just a little water in the bottom over low heat until you get a thick mush. This took me about 30 minutes with frozen fruits.

Process the strawberry/pear/apricot mush with the banana

Whisk together the dry ingredients (flours, baking powder/soda, xantham gum)

Add the processed fruits, vanilla, yogurt, and egg yolks (reserve the whites) and mix together well

Beat the egg whites with a whisk until frothy, then fold them into the dough

Pour the dough into a 9x12 greased pan and spread out using a spatula

Bake at 375 for 25-30 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean

Make the icing while the cake is baking:

Process strawberries and strain somewhat through cheesecloth or coffee filters

Process strawberries solids, xantham gum, and cream cheese

Spread the icing on a cooled cake
