  1. My daughter has celiac. Would you recommend a different flour to possibly use to try this? Looks amazing!!!

    1. Buy Bob red mill 1 to 1 flour I substitute it in all recipes .I also have 2 grown children with celiac.if you have pinterest follow a girl on there she has great recipes she goes by the gluten free palate.

    1. you can make your own, just google “buttermilk recipe.” It is just milk mixed with some type of acidy ingredient to curdle the milk a bit to turn it “buttery”

    2. I think buttermilk is easy to make. I think you just add a little vinegar to some regular milk. If you Google it, you could probably get a recipe for it. Hope that helps!

    3. Use milk: stir in 1tbsp of white vinger or lemon juice to 1 cup of milk. Let it sit for about 10 minutes to get full effect

    4. You can add one tablespoon of white vinegar to regular milk and let it sit ten min to make your own buttermilk.

  2. I wouldn’t. But I’m subbing the lemon peel with lemon extract. Fingers crossed

  3. I made this cake. It was a huge disaster. I should have listened to the little voice that said 2 cups of sugar seems a bit much. From now on, I will compare ingredients in baked recipes. Inedible. Waste of
    time and ingredients.

  4. Hi there, The glaze was really thick and the cream cheese icing was runny. did we make a mistake?
