Pecan & white chocolate cake
This recipe is for my sister. Sister # 2 cause she asked nicely. More and more people are gluten intolerant and find it hard to find any wheat-free treats that are in the pastry/bakery section. Go on…try this. Go buy a wheat-free something in the shops…did you enjoy it? No. Did you feel satisfied afterwards? No, cause it probably tasted like a loo roll with carob on it.
Here’s what we had last night for Bossladys birthday: A wheat-free Pecan and white chocolate cake.
Taskmaster is gluten intolerant so everything I make is minus wheat. Sounds hard, but really simple – Just Substitute.
Wheat flour is really bad and bleached and etc, blah blah blah anyway, so just use rice/millet/quinoa/corn/almond/chickpea/rye(not gluten-free) potato/and the list goes on/ flour instead.
