Gluten-free carrot cake recipe?

LJS | Mar 29, 2009 05:30 PM

In a moment of madness, I purchased a gluten-free frozen carrot cake from my local health-food store. My daughter is coming to visit and I thought I could just gussy it up with a cream-cheese frosting from my very own hands.

Imagine my horror when a scrutinization of the ingredients once I got it home revealed NO carrrots!

I can do my gluten-intolerant daughter better than that!

All I need is a good recipe. The ones from gluten-free websites call for purchased baking mixes and I would rather avoid that (In fact they can be hard to find where I live). I have successfully combined potatoe/rice/tapioca flours before (with xanthum gum) for fairly decent efforts and am ready to do it again.

Also any ideas with what I could do with this odd but expensive carrot-free carrot cake? Would this sort ot thing 'stale-up' for 'bread pudding? Or should I just toss it? It wasn't cheap.
