I make a chocolate cake for my dad who is intollerent to gluton as well  i basically use my normal choc sponge recipe, but add a little bit of milk.  This recipe is for a loaf tin but double it for a bigger tin.

4oz gluton free self raising flour
4oz caster sugar
4oz marg
2 eggs
2 tablespoons of cocoa powder (or just do it to taste)

Chuck it all into a mixing bowl and mix using an electric whisk. 

After mixing, put in some milk just to make the mixture look like a normal cake mixture

Bung in the oven for about half an hour on 180 or thereabouts.

I also do a sticky toffee pudding which is similar.  I can let you have that if you are interested?

If you're doing gluten free cakes I swear by Helen's Brilliant Bread mix.

My friend is coeliac and we've tried various flours and I've found most of them come up dry in your mouth. But this one substitutes straight with normal flour.

Have a good banana bread recipe if you like?

Really simple and not had a bad one yet, even with reducing sugar. Also works as muffins.


Banana Bread Recipe
INGREDIENTS
•   3 or 4 ripe bananas, smashed
•   1/3 cup melted butter
•   1 cup sugar (can easily reduce to 3/4 cup)
•   1 egg, beaten
•   1 teaspoon vanilla
•   1 teaspoon baking soda
•   Pinch of salt
•   1 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour

METHOD
No need for a mixer for this recipe. Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C). With a wooden spoon, mix butter into the mashed bananas in a large mixing bowl. Mix in the sugar, egg, and vanilla. Sprinkle the baking soda and salt over the mixture and mix in. Add the flour last, mix. Pour mixture into a buttered 4x8 inch loaf pan. Bake for 1 hour. Cool on a rack. Remove from pan and slice to serve.

NIgela Lawson does a great wheat free orange chocolate cake with ground almonds.
I am away at the mo so can't look it up.
I am a nutritionist and have had my baby on a wheat, dairy, egg, soya free diet for a year (allergies from birth). If you want some recipes emailing over PM me
Good luck  :D

Chocolate roulade has no flour and is delish, there is a good recipe in Delia Smith cookery course (old brown cover book)  My mum used to be so pleased to be able to make it for my coeliac cousins years ago before there was any gluten free stuff about. It is in the book as Squidgy chocolate log, she fills it with white choc mousse but cream is simpler

Sticky toffee pudding recipe

6oz butter/margerine
6oz dark muscovado sugar
2tbsp golden syrup
2 eggs, beaten
4oz self raising flour (gluton free)

Preheat oven 180 degrees

Grease ovenproof dish
Pour 2oz of butter, 2oz of sugar and the golden syrup in a saucepan.  Heat very gently.   Pour into dish
Put remaining butter (4oz) and sugar (4oz) in saucepan and heat gently.  Remove from heat and cool slightly.  Add beaten eggs, mix well.  If you put the eggs in before it's cooled enough, you end up with scrambled eggs
Sift flour in a bowl and make a well in the middle.  Pour in the melted butter mixture and stir well.
Transfer to baking dish
Place in oven for 40-45 mins

If the flour mixture is a little thick, add a small amount of milk.  I don't think I've had to add much at all in the past but it has been a while since I made a GF one.

I always make extra toffess sauce to go with it.

6oz marg
6oz dark muscavado sugar
cream

Heat butter and sugar together, add cream to taste. 

It is a simple sticky toffee recipe so doesn't include dates, which I don't like anyway.  Imagine you could put those in without any problems if you like.

Helen
