One-Bowl Gluten-Free Cream Cake

One-Bowl Gluten-Free Cream Cake

I have no idea why a “one bowl” anything appeals to me so. Or why a cake that turns out perfectly delicate and delicious without using a stand mixer excites me. After all, I am supposed to want to use my mixer, right?

The mixer is not neglected, trust me. (Note the fresh whipped cream frosting.)

But even though the stand mixer is not necessary for this recipe, you still end up with a lovely moist vanilla cake. Top it with the freshest grass fed whipped cream, and garnish  with fresh berries and you may have your new go-to summer dessert!

We were actually celebrating the US World Cup victory this week, but this is super-simple and delish for July 4th, too!
