Gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free cake?

padraigin | Aug 16, 2007 04:34 PM

My boyfriend and I are on a 'cleanse' diet as a part of my naturopathic treatment, but it's his birthday this weekend and I'd really like to make him a cake if I can.

I have no idea if it's even possible with how much we can't eat right now (I don't have a lot of cooking/baking experience), but we made some wonderful cookies the other day, so I thought it might be!

Anyway we can't have the following:
gluten
dairy
sugar
any sweetener but stevia (including molasses, honey etc)
strawberries, grapefruit, banana, melon, oranges
any oil but extra virgin olive oil
eggs
corn, potato, or soy based products

The cookes we made had:
sweet potatoes
rice flour
tapioca flour
gluten-free/corn-free baking powder
olive oil
stevia
apple juice

Any suggestions would really be appreciated!
