This is so much easier than some of the complicated gluten free cakes I've seen on here. I got this from the Goodie Goodie Gluten Free blog. I adapted it to make it dairy free and chocolate free (I have a DD with allergies). Since it uses starches as a base, it does come out a little chewy, but not bad. My whole family liked it, even with the carob frosting. You may use cocoa powder, if you like.
