DD has been diagnosed with a possible gluten intolerance and I want to make her a cake ( she's over 18 BTW!)

I usually just swap ordinary flour for Dove's Farm and it works okay but is sometimes a little dry.

Has anyone got a nice recipe maybe for a chocci cake?

I just use a cake recipe I like and as well as swapping ordinary flour for gluten free flour, I add Xanthan Gum (1 tsp per 8oz of flour) which stops the cake being dry.
I'm not great at chocolate cake so I sometimes use the gluten free chocolate cake mixes (usually Hale & Hearty or Glebe Farm - you can get both at supermarkets).

I've had some good ones from the good food website and I seem to remember I made one using ground almonds instead of flour.
