Low-FODMAP Vanilla Sour Cream Pound Cake (Bundt style) is a simple, classic treat that is brimming with vanilla flavors.  You can eat it lightly dusted with confectioner’s sugar and berries, layer it with low-FODMAP vanilla bean whipped cream, low-FODMAP rhubarb jam, low-FODMAP lemon curd, or  low-FODMAP custard, or use it as a base for a low-FODMAP trifle or ice cream cake.  It is versatile and delicious.

Serves 10

Prep time: 15 min

Bake time: 45-50 min

Total time: About 1 hour

Bake 350 F

Equipment:**NOTE PAN SIZE

  • 9 inch (8-10 cup) fluted or Bundt style pound cake pan
    • Do not substitute a 10 cup tube cake pan or a larger Bundt pan (many are 12 cup size), or your cake will be quite flat
  • If you bake this in a loaf pan it will be much denser and not the correct texture

Modified from “Gluten-free Baking Classics, 2nd ed” Annalise G Roberts.


  • 1 & 1/2 cups all purpose low-FODMAP, gluten-free flour (I use Authentic Foods GF Classical Blend- see my low-FODMAP bake off blog for the reason why!)
  • 2 & 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp xanthan gum, if not added to your low-FODMAP flour
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup lactose-free sour cream (full fat)
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 3 tsp vanilla extract or substitute 1 tsp almond extract for 1 tsp of the vanilla
  • Cooking spray or vegetable shortening for greasing
  • Confectioner’s sugar, for dusting


  • Preheat oven to 350 F, place rack in center of oven
  • Grease a 9 inch pound cake style Bundt pan with cooking spray or shortening (or low-FODMAP Magical Cake Pan release paste)
  • Whisk low-FODMAP flour, baking powder, xanthan gum and salt together and set aside
  • Beat eggs in a stand mixer at a medium high speed
  • Slowly add in the sugar and beat until it is light in color and thickened
  • Add the low-FODMAP flour mixture, oil, lactose free sour cream and vanilla and beat until combined
  • Evenly spread the batter into the prepared pan. Place in the center of the oven and bake about 45-50 minutes
    • Do not open the oven for the first 40 minutes
    • When tester comes out clean, cake is done (mine took exactly 45 minutes)
    • As ovens vary, your oven may need more or less time
  • Cool the cake in the pan for 10 minutes
  • Carefully remove cake from pan and cool completely on a cooling rack
  • Garnish with berries, confectioner’s sugar or other desired toppings
