Best Cake Recipe

One of my best friends was recently diagnosed with celiac disease. I'm surprising her for her birthday with a few friends. I have about a month to test recipes out for a gluten free birthday cake. I've done some research online and found a few recipes, but I was wondering if any of you have recipes to share? What is your favorite birthday cake OR dessert to make that is gluten free? She LOVES chocolate so anything with chocolate will definitely be a big hit. Thanks so much for the advice!!

The recipe zaar one bowl chocolate cake is really good. It's an old recipe that goes by a lot of different names, the Amish call it "whacky cake" and it was in the old "I hate to cook" book. It converts easily just by using a gluten free flour mix with some xanthan gum. As the notes say, with some flours you can cut down the xanthan gum and it still doesn't crumble. The original recipe with regular flour does not have an egg, and still works, the moisture comes from the oil and leaving out the dairy, which can toughen baked goods.
