Gluten Free Nantucket Cranberry Cake

Gluten Free Nantucket Cranberry Cake:
Pre-Heat oven to 350*

Lightly Spray a 9" baking Pan with Cooking Spray
Or bake in a Pie plate
Melt 1 TBL. Butter and drizzle on the bottom on the pan

In a food Processor or by hand chop up coarsely
2 Cups Fresh Cranberries

Spread the Cranberries in the pan along with
½ Cup Chopped Walnuts
½ Cup Sugar

In a Kitchenaid Mixer with the Paddle Whisk for 1 Minute:
2 Large Eggs
¾ Cup Melted Unsalted  Butter (cooled slightly)
1 Cup Sugar
1 tsp. Vanilla Extract
¼ tsp. Almond Extract

In a smaller Bowl whisk together:
1 Cup Gluten Free Flour (***SEE FOOT NOTE***)
½ tsp. Xanthan Gum
½ tsp. Salt

Add the Dry Ingredients to the Wet Ingredients until combined.
The Batter will be thick.
Spread the Batter over the Cranberries and Nuts using a wet Spatula

Sprinkle on some coarse white sparkling Sugar over the batter. I did not have this type of sugar, I used regular sugar.

Bake 40-45 minutes or until cake tester inserted into the center comes out clean.

Cool in the pan on a wire wrack.

When ready to serve cut the cake and place on a plate. Warm in the Microwave for 20-30 seconds. (if serving the cake right out of the oven skip warming it in the microwave.)

Serve with Vanilla Ice Cream or Whipped Cream.

(***FOOT NOTE***)

You can use the recipe below for home made Gluten Free flour mix
or buy a pre-made Gluten Free Flour Mix

Gluten Free Home Made Flour Mix for:
cookies, muffins, cakes, quick breads and biscuits
I got this recipe at the Gluten Free Expo

2 1/4 Cups Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Brown Rice Flour
1/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Potato Starch
2/3 Cup Bob's Red Mill Tapioca Starch
3/4 Cup Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Sweet Rice Flour
1/3 Cup Cornstarch

Measure all the ingredients into a container. I used a spoon to lightly mix it together then put the cover on and shake well.
(Making sure its a tight fitting cover)

The original recipe called to add 2 tsp. Xanthan Gum
I did not do that, I like to add mine to each recipe individually.
