  1. How can a white cake be gluten free? I am confused after reading this recipe. Am I missing something about the white cake recipe?

  2. If you click on the the word “Classic White Cake” in the recipe, it will redirect you to our gluten free white cake recipe.

  3. You can omit it completely if you like (you don’t need to replace it with anything), it tastes great with or without it!
