Carrot Cake (Gluten-Free)


Photo: CC/thebittenword

This is one recipe to keep in your recipe collection; especially if you love carrot cake as much as I do. The best thing about this recipe is that it is of course gluten-free, but also dairy-free. There is also an option for nut-free if you leave out the walnuts (adapted from Elana’s Pantry recipe).

I appreciate you.

It's such a relief to hear this as there was a time when I was feeling like an alien for thinking these things. Well I agree 99.9%....

Hi Celiac4762, The carbs I eat are sweet potato, parsnip and squash plus loads of fruit. With rice I'm ok if it's from a reputable source. If I ever get glutened by something then I steer clear of it for a month to give myself an extra break and then go back to it in smallish quantities. I h...
