Butter and Margarine: Butter is a dairy product made from cow’s milk. Margarine typically contains milk or soy, but there are milk-free and soy-free versions available.

Corn Substitutions: Corn is a common ingredient in products. Starch, modified food starch, dextrin and maltodextrin can be from corn. Consult with your physician to find out which corn derivatives you need to avoid. Many corn-free options are available in the US. Find out more about corn substitutions.

Egg Substitutions: There are many egg-free products and foods available to make your recipes free of eggs. Find out more about egg substitutions.

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.

Milk and Soy Substitutions: Alternative dairy-free milk beverages and products will work in most recipes. Find out more about milk substitutions and soy substitutions.

I replaced the sugar with mostly honey and a little maple syrup. Replaced butter with coconut oil. eliminated the water and cut the milk back to half a cup of rice milk. Used applesauce and 1 tsp baking soda to replace egg. Turned out AWESOME which is so exciting to me because I have been having a tough time finding good recipes that are egg, wheat/gluten, and dairy free. Yay!! Thanks for the recipe :)

Kathy - we can definitely help with a cake for your grandson. Wacky Cake ( is one of our most popular recipes and can be made gluten free. I'm not sure about grain free though. I recommend joining our online community and asking in the Food & Cooking forum about cake recipes -
