Just watch your label on the flour -- white lily is pure wheat and if you can do chocolate this is a good recipe:

or you could even do a chocolate flourless cake

Thanks so much 'K8Memphis'.. Really appreciated your help. 

What is 'white lily'?? Is it a brand? Where can I get it?  If I substitute recipe for all purpose flour with whole wheat flour, what other care should I take. Flourless cake I can't make (from ur link) Bcoz they want eggless cake too

oh yeah oops on the eggless part for the flourless cake -- i was close one outa two -- no popsicle --

but yes white lilly is a brand of flour and at least one of the cakers on here use it for their cakes --- white lily is white flour that is all wheat no barley but it's not called 'whole wheat flour'-- whole wheat flour has bran and germ in it and it's brown and it might make a good cake but i don't bake cakes with it -- makes a very different product --

you can get wl on amazon and I'm sure king Arthur flour company probably sells barley free flour but just read your labels--

also wl is available in a lot of more southern grocery stores--

maybe cake flour is barley free but i can't remember for sure and my dog is asleep on my feet so i can't get up right now but will check in a few --

but again barley is clearly listed in the ingredients and it has been added to many white flours so...
