    I really enjoyed this cake. We made an orange glaze. Even the wheat-eaters in our family thought it was good. I would definitely make it again!

    Made this to take to work for a co-worker's birthday. It was really yummy. One would never know that it was gluten-free. Eight people asked for the recipe and I gladly shared. Will definitely be making this again. Thanks Ukichix!


A quote that my Dad thought was fitting to both himself and me. <br> <br>A recipe is merely words on paper; a guideline, a starting point from which to improvise. It cannot pretend to replace the practiced hand and telling glance of a watchful cook. For that reason feel free to stir your own ideas into any dish. When you cook it once, it becomes yours, so personalize it a bit. Add more of an ingredient you like or less of something you don?t like. Try substituting one ingredient for another. Remember words have no flavour, you have to add your own! <br> <br>My need to experiment and want to cook tasty meals came to me after being diagnosed Celiac in December of 1999. <br>What would I have done without the Zaar? <br> <br>I love to create tasty meals that are either already GF or modify to make them so. I love to make GF meals and desserts that my guests ask are you sure you can eat this? Then I know I have a winner! <br> <br> <br><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket></a>
