Many ask if sour cream is gluten free. I haven’t seen any brand add flour to sour cream, but given some odd things I have seen over the years, definitely read the labels just to make sure!”
Our lemon tree is full of lemons again. If you have read my blog for some time, you will know how much of a struggle it is to use up fresh lemons. All of our neighbor’s trees are also full, so it is hard to find people to give lemons to. If we don’t pick them fast enough, the lemons get so heavy branches break off.

These little lemon cakes hover somewhere between a gluten free pound cake and a souffle. I guess that is mostly because they are buttery and moist like a pound cake, but they also have a lot of fluffy characteristics of a souffle.
Making this gluten free lemon sour cream cake recipe is so easy. Mix up your lemon cake batter, then gently fold in the whipped egg whites. These cakes rise up like souffles when you bake them, but surprisingly, they don’t fall too far down as they cool. Allow to cool and dust with powdered sugar, or top with a fruit sauce like this delicious Olallieberry Sauce.
Souffles are like clouds. They puff way up as they bake, then slowly fall back down as they cool.
