Fantastic results, made several times with different fillings and every time several people commented that they couldn't tell it was gluten-free.

Amazing recipe! Using my food mixer, this cake was able to reach its full potential. No one could tell the difference! The in laws who have coeliac disease said the cake I made following this recipe is the best cake they have ever eaten. Needless to say, the cake did not survive the night! Thank you for a wonderful recipe and good quality ingredients. If I could, I would upload a photo of my bake.

I used this recipe for my son's birthday cake, he is dairy free and gluten free so I used dairy free margarine. It turned out brilliantly and got many compliments, noone realised it was a free from recipe. Thanks!

I made this cake for my friends birthday party. This cake was super delicious and it was a very big hit! I added around 1 cup of chocolate chip cookies and that made a big difference. It made the cake more moist and chocolaty! My friends and everyone loved it very much.
