I am trying to find any tasty recipe for a cake that will be gluten, egg, milk, and butter free for someone with multiple food allergies. It seems like all the recipes I find may be free of one or two of these ingredients, but not all. Does anyone have either suggestions or a recipe that I could use? I really appreciate any help! Thank you!!!

I don't know what is in Betty Crocker gluten free recipes, but if they are egg and milk free, maybe you could use one of those with some apple sauce included instead of egg and milk.

For egg allergies or vegan diets, replace eggs with ENER G Egg replacer, or you can just substitute each egg with 1 tablespoon of vinegar (apple cider vinegar is good or a household white vinegar) and mix that with 1 teaspoon of baking soda before adding it to your recipe.
Any milk can be substituted with soy milk. Butter can be substituted with oil as long as you add some sort of ingredient that emulsifies the oil, like swapping some of the sugar out with agave, honey, molasses or syrup or adding nuts.
I have an awesome website that helped me learn how to substitute and convert recipes for certain diet restrictions.

and this was my first gluten free and vegan recipe, and is still to this day my favorite!

I just did a Gluten Free/Dairy free bownie for my friend's son. I started off trying a cake recipe, but I couldn't get it to turn out right. I have complete respect for those that bake with food allergies. It took me 4 tries before I found something I felt okay about giving him.

Thankfully my friend bought the flours and other gluten free/dairy free things for me to work with.
