Gluten Free King Cake! Ca c’est bon!

I am so excited that my first

Gluten Free King Cake turned out –
Ca c’est bon! (That’s good!)

I decided to make it easy so I tweaked a few recipes and used Pamela’s Products bread mix. This is a combination sweet bread and Challah bread … YUM! It is not only Gluten Free but Dairy Free and Soy Free too! I used Earth Balance non-dairy non-soy, natural buttery spread and Nielsen Massey Bourbon Vanilla paste to enhance the yeasty flavor of the bread. I purchased the beautiful traditional colored sugars from Williams-Sonoma in Purple (justice), Green (faith) and Gold (power) that represent the three wise men. It is also a tradition to hide a prize – a bean, coin or plastic baby inside the cake to represent the Christ child. The finder of the prize or baby is said to host the following year’s festivities. I must get it every year because I love hosting Mardi Gras!


Enjoy the parade highlights and your Gluten Free King Cake!

Laissez les bon temps rouler (lay ZAY lay bon ton rule ay) …
Let the good times roll!!!
