Measure the flour by weight. If you must use a measuring cup, lightly fill it with flour using a spoon and level off with a knife. One of the most frequent reasons gluten free baked goods don’t turn out is mismeasuring flour.

Butter, eggs, and sour cream MUST be at room temperature to achieve a light and tender crumb.

Steep the tea in milk for a minimum of 7 minutes.

Don’t underbake the cake. A good indicator that the cake is done baking is when a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
