    Some of the g f cake mixes are also dairy free, or have a dairy free option.
    And are easy and yummy.

    I can't remember if it's lactose free (and I'm sure you can work around it with alternatives) but there's a chocolate cake on womens weekly website that uses whole boiled organges blended up and almond flour that is a knockout. It's not cheap given the amount of almond flour, but as a special occasion cake it's amazing!

    I'd like to also add this:
    Gluten free cakes can be considerably more fragile and crumbly than usual, so it pays to treat them gently, letting them cool in the tin etc..............

    Plenty of tears have been shed over a gluten free cake that smelled delicious while cooking and looked just like the picture, but fell into a million crumby pieces on turning it out. Which is why I tend to go with the packet mix, which has the right proportions of a binding agent like guar gum already added, but without ending up rubbery.

    Best of luck!

    Oh dear:
    I'm reasonably certain that Mars bars and rice bubbles contain gluten, which I know is frustrating......please check the ingredient list for the words "contains gluten" probably bolded at the end.
    Just goes to show how hard it can be, when a flourless cake turns out to have gluten in it. Also dairy.

    There is also a mars bar slice which is also yummy:
    3 Mars Bars
    3 tablespoons margarine
    1 tablespoon Golden Syrup
    3 cups Rice Bubbles
    200g Cadbury chocolate

    Melt Mars Bars with margarine. Add Rice Bubbles and syrup. Press into lined slice tin. Melt the chocolate and pour over. Refrigerate to set.
    This has gluten and dairy in this recipe.

    So I just checked the ingredient list on the website- it's the barley malt extract which is the problem.

    OK, well I better tell my friend who gave me this mars bar recipe as she makes things gluten free. She assured me rice is perfectly fine. In regards to the margarine, just use a substitute like Nuttelex I suppose.

    Like share a book said, just be really, really careful about cross contamination.

    As crazy as it sounds, even a crumb of gluten can be enough to set off an autoimmune reaction in sensitive people.

    Wood is particularly problematic, so if you steer clear of the chopping board and use a stainless steel spoon, you should be all good

    I think it is so nice that you are going to the trouble of making a gluten free cake for someone (assuming it's not for yourself of course! )
