We are having some friends over for lunch for DH's birthday on Sunday. I want to do some kind of a cake for pudding so that we can do the candles on it but I'd like it to be more dessertish than an ordinary cake. It can't have alcohol or nuts in (except ground almonds) and must be pregnancy-friendly! Does anyone have any recipes? TIA

or a lovely cake made with ground almonds instead of flour, you make the cakes in swiss roll tins, have about four layers, and sandwich each layer between lots of chocolate ganache, then cover the cake in more chocolate ganache and slivered almonds <drool>
