Hi, I have just baked a gorgeous chocolate chestnut cake that is gluten and dairy free.  Just wondered if anyone else has any really good gluten and/or dairy free recipes?

AWe developed some excellent GF/DF cake and frosting recipes over the course of several months of R&D.

All I have is that I subbed Silk Almond milk for the real milk in my yellow cupcakes and they were excellent.  I only did it because we were low on milk and it really surprised me.  I think they are more tender with the almond milk.

The Chocolate Depression cake on here is dairy free and I always find good.

Carrot cake (without the frosting) is usually dairy free too and the fatless sponge used in swiss rolls can easily be used as a "regular cake" with jam or whatever as filling.

 

I have never made this cake but a friend has and said it always turned out nice:

Can you share the chestnut chocolate cake recipe?

All my recipes are dairy-free and many of them are eggless as well. This weekend I'm going to experiment with some gluten-free recipes, because I'm curious. Last night I sent my hubby to a few cupcake shops to buy their gluten-free offering so I can taste test them to see what they are like. Much to my surprise they were pleasant, more spongy than their other offerings, a bit drier, but I like spongy cake. I expected grittiness and chewiness which is what people often complained to me about with gluten-free. 

 

My favorite dairy-free recipe, which just so happens to be eggless is the Wacky chocolate cake, I think it's a depression era cake. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/wacky-cake-viii/detail.aspx?event8=1&prop24=SR_Title&e11=wacky%20cake&e8=Quick%20Search&event10=1&e13=A%3aSearch%20Results-List%28control%29&e7=Home%20Page

Gritty mouth feel is usually caused by potato starch, which is often used in GF mixes. Tapioca starch is a better alternative.

I've made a regular butter cake recipe using vegan butter instead and it turned out pretty good!

komalali Posted 2 Apr 2014 , 2:10pm

AFor dairy free recipes what to use for butter and milk? Cream cheese? And can use the normal icing sugar? Where can I get these products in canada..help please, I'm new in cake business

jennicake Posted 2 Apr 2014 , 8:28pm

Cream cheese is a dairy product!  Don't use that if you need a dairy-free cake.  I'm in Canada as well, you should be able to find all sorts of dairy-free substitutes in your regular grocery store.  Soy milk works well for regular milk and vegan butter works in place of regular butter.  This is all dependant on the recipe of course.  You can also find an oil-based recipe to use instead of one that asks for butter.

AI saw a cake mix gluten free... Use that? Thanks i will definitely look , can anyone help me with oil based recipe ?

Thanks once again

jennicake Posted 2 Apr 2014 , 9:01pm

Gluten free is not the same thing as dairy free...

komalali Posted 2 Apr 2014 , 9:03pm

AAny dairy free recipe?

komalali Posted 2 Apr 2014 , 9:05pm

cakegrandma Posted 2 Apr 2014 , 10:31pm

Bekah913 Posted 12 Aug 2014 , 2:38pm
