Recipe Request

Posted on 04/30/2012 by presqueparfait
Hello :)

Someone at work has asked me to make a dairy, egg and gluten-free chocolate cake for her son who has severe allergies.

Does anyone have any foolproof recipes they can recommend? I know it's quite specific but I also know that you guys are usually pretty good at this kind of thing!

Thanks in advance :)

google vegan cupcakes take over the world and use one of their chocolate ones and replace the flour to a gluten free one.

Excellent advice. (Which I was just about to offer. :)

A note: reduce the liquid by a couple tablespoons (the gluten free flour generally doesn't soak up as much liquid as wheat flour).

agreed! my old roommate is vegan and one of our other best friends is gf, so we would regularly use that cookbook and just use gf flour :) always turned out well. and their chocolate frosting recipe is amazing!

If you're willing to use a mix, I really like the Bob's Red Mill gluten free chocolate cake mix. It can be made without dairy or eggs and still turns out delicious.

I'd make a Wacky Cake and swap the flour for something gluten friendly!

It's completely dairy-free. :)

Here's a good recipe : http://allrecipes.com/recipe/wacky-cake-viii/
