BLUEBERRY "BOY BAIT" CAKE {GLUTEN FREE}

I have a new favorite gluten-free flour! This is very exciting for ME because for the last few years since my son Kell was diagnosed with celiacs disease I have tried MANY gluten-free baking mixes and flour blends but none of them have left me overjoyed. However, since I discovered Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free All Purpose Baking Flour at Costco about a month ago I have been baking like a fiend! It’s almost like the “old days” when I would bake cookies for the kids when they came home from school. Well, OK, I didn’t do that very often, but I did it sometimes! :-) Since our celiacs diagnosis however, I’d pretty much abandoned the practice altogether. Until now.
