    TooAllergic's Note:

    Dense and Gooey. This cake is decadent with butter and flour, but works well with dairy-free margarine and gluten-free flour! I love this cake glazed with ganache and sprinkled with toasted almonds, or covered with my balsamic strawberries. To be GF, make sure the baking powder is gluten-free- not just the flour. To be dairy-free, make sure the margarine is 100% vegetable/legume-based.
