Since my son became gluten intolerant1 year ago the things that are hard go without are bread and cake. He now has an egg allergy and i have had little success with any cake recipies until I tried the vegan sponge cake as with anything new recipie I tried first time it was ok but, I tried it again doubling the quantity and it was fantastic.
