Urgent help needed - vegan gluten free cake recipe
July 27, 2014 1:25 AM Subscribe
Google is being horribly unhelpful on this one. I have volunteered to make a fruit cake for a friend's wedding. It must be dairy-free, gluten-free, soya-free and wheat-free. Difficult part: I live in Belgium, which doesn't seem to cater for dietary requirements like this, plus there's a language barrier.
Actually, given that list of dietary requirements, the Belgian bit might be the easy part. Oh well. Calling MeFi bakers anyway!
So, when I search for vegan gluten-free fruit cake recipes, google is absolutely terrible. So far I've found:
- Many hits which contain egg despite having 'vegan' on the page
- Even more hits which contain normal flour
- Hits which specify 'gluten-free self raising flour' which as far as I can tell, does not exist in this country
- Pages that are not fruit cakes (at least, not dried fruit recipes - I don't want to make an apple cake or a pear cake)
I've tried looking for almond flour recipes and the only one I've found that fit all the other criteria had a bunch of weird ingredients that it'll be a nightmare to find in this country.
Please help me, askmefi, I'm running out of time.
