Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake Recipe

This is an easy gluten free red velvet cake recipe from scratch. It makes a stunning 3-layer cake that’s surprising simple to make and is frosted with cream cheese frosting.

Red Velvet Cake is an iconic cake that’s been on my to-make list for far too long. I finally started testing it in December for my mom’s birthday and it was a huge hit.

I haven’t had a ton of red velvet cakes or red velvet cupcakes but I’ve had enough to know that this is easily the best red velvet cake recipe I’ve had. It’s moist with a tender/velvety crumb. It’s just really, really good.

Gluten Free Red Velvet Cake Recipe


Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Spray 3 8-inch round cake pans with non-stick spray and line the bottoms with parchment paper.


In a large bowl, whisk together the gluten free flour, xanthan gum, granulated sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda, and salt. Try to press out as many cocoa powder lumps as possible then set the bowl aside.
