I improvised a bit on Gluten-Free Cauliflower Cake to come up with this broccoli cake. It’s very simple to make and tastes delicious.

  • Ingredients:
  • 1 large crown broccoli, sliced into florets
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 1/2 cup sliced or thinly chopped onion
  • 5 extra-large eggs (or 6 large)
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour (I used Namaste Perfect Blend)
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Prepare a 9″ round cake pan by spraying or greasing.

Cook the broccoli by simmering in salted water until tender. Remove from heat. While the broccoli cooks, saute the onion in butter until translucent. Remove from heat. Let broccoli and onion cool a little bit. Mix together. Add eggs and mix well. Stir in gluten-free flour, baking powder, salt, and sharp cheddar cheese.

Spoon the batter into the prepared cake pan and smooth the top. Bake at 375 degrees F for 40 minutes or until top springs back when pressed lightly. Let rest for 5-10 minutes and then remove from pan onto cooling rack. Slice and serve while warm.
