Gluten: Gluten is a protein found in specific grains (wheat, spelt, kamut, barley, rye). Other grains are naturally gluten-free but may have cross-contact with gluten-containing grains. Look for certified gluten-free products if you need to avoid gluten. Find out more about wheat and gluten substitutions.

 Keep in Mind  
  1. Always read labels! Product ingredients can change without notice. Do not assume a recipe or product is safe for you. Contact manufacturers to confirm safety for your allergy needs.
  2. A check in a box on a recipe means you can make a recipe "free of" that allergen. You may need to use a substitution or alternative product to make that recipe safe for the allergies you are managing.
  3. If you need assistance with a recipe or ingredient substitution, post on our Food & Cooking support forums. You will receive personal help to alter a recipe to make it allergy-free for your child’s needs.

This is a very simple and super tasty cake! Thank you for this recipe! It is not easy to make a tasty cake to accommodate for all allergies my kids have.... and this cake - they just loveSmile

This looks great! What did you use for the frosting?

Unfortunately, she didn't share the frosting recipe!  I usually use cream cheese frosting on carrot cake.  I've made it using a regular recipe and subbing out dairy free cream cheese and margarine.  What do you need to avoid?

Just found out am sensitive to eggs yolks & whites but still want my veggie omelette for brekkie. ...anything i can use for substitute? Would egg replacer work?

There are a few different options for getting an omelet - none will be quite the same.  You can scramble tofu with veggies.  My suggestion would be to post on our Food & Cooking forum and ask for suggestions.

this cake looks great! Excited to try it hope it tastes as good as it looks.
