Does a gluten, lactose & nut free cake recipe exist?


I would like to make a friend a cake for her birthday but she has many allergies including gluten, soya, sugar, lactose & nuts :(

I can't find a recipe anywhere that doesn't include any of those ingredients. I'm wondering if using alternatives such as estevia (for sugar), lactose free milk and some sort of gluten free flour would produce tasteless results if used altogether. I'd be really grateful for any tips!

Oh, and to make matters worse I need it to be a 'solid' cake mix as would like to do a tiered cake and decorate it! Am I asking for the possible??

For Debbie

Hello Debbie,

How about this cake but substitute the flour for gluten fee, the butte for lacto free and the sugar for total sweet (xylitol) and omit the nuts.

Or you could do the same with most fruit cakes if you have another recipe that you like.

Best wishes
