I’m so excited to try this! We often have Mardi Gras parties and I was wondering how I was going to pull off the King Cake gluten free. I didn’t even plan a party this year, but I will be up baking late tonight I’m sure, so I can be ready for a little family celebration tomorrow! 🙂 Thanks so much for posting this recipe!!!

Glad that I could help, Carolyn! What type of filling did you traditionally use? Have fun baking!

I was just thinking about trying to make one of these yesterday with your cinnamon roll dough! Can’t wait to try it out!

Beth, this recipe uses my cinnamon bun recipe as the base, so you were on the right track! 🙂

Oh, Jeanine, what a beautiful King Cake! Love the side view of the goodness inside, too. 😉 Last, thanks so much for sharing my Crockpot Jambalaya! I had forgotten that tomorrow was Mardi Gras when I scheduled my support group meeting for then, can you believe it? So crockpot jambalaya is going on the menu. Maybe your cake, too? No yeast, but I may be able to pick some up today and squeeze in time … hmmm. I always have to much on my “to do” list! LOL
Happy Family Day in Canada, dear!

You’re very welcome, Shirley! Happy to include your dish, it looks like it would be perfect for Mardi Gras. 🙂 And those “to do” lists never shrink, do they??

I LOVE this King Cake. You did a fabulous job with it and the filling looks just right in my book.

Thanks, Terris. It is (or rather, was) one yummy cake!

We corresponded through email and it just occurred to me while I was pursuing your site that I never “publicly” sang your praises. I lived in Louisiana for 6 years and became gluten free after leaving the state. I have tried for years to make a king cake in February because they are so yummy and remind me of happy Loisiana times. Finally, this year, thanks to you I had my first king cake in 6 years and it was so good I almost cried. I was so proud of myself! I wanted to share it with everyone AND eat it all myself 😉
Thank you so very much!

Hey Jeanine–I’ve included your gorgeous King Cake in a roundup on All Gluten-Free Desserts. I even mentioned your other Mardi Gras recipes at the bottom of this post, but had forgotten that you’d linked to my jambalaya. 😉 Mardi Gras is in March this year, which means that Easter is in April. All that means being a little bit closer to warm weather, right? I will be ready! 🙂

Haha, one can HOPE that would mean warm weather sooner, but I have my doubts! Thanks so much for including the links Shirley, I really appreciate it! As soon as this super bowl is out of the way, I’ll share the round-up with my readers. 🙂

I made this last year and my family loved it! Just wanted to give you kudos! I’ll be making it again this weekend!

This recipe was amazing. We have been gluten free for about 6 months since my daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I was hoping to carry on our traditions such as a king cake but wasn’t sure I would be able to. I made one today with your recipe and it was amazing. My daughter was so excited to try it. We all agreed it was better than any store bought one. Thank you so much for this recipe. It means so much to me and my family. I can’t wait to try your other recipes. Thank you!

Yeah! so happy to hear that, Mary! That’s what it’s about – keeping traditions alive, even without gluten. 🙂
