Well, this is the recipe I turn to....and it is gluten-free!!! We call this recipe "Cupboard Cake" because it only uses ingredients from the cupboard - nothing from the fridge. No eggs, no milk, no butter! and it is gluten-free! and it is delicious!!

...and it can be topped with a smooth, chocolate icing! ...can't ask for more than that! 😉
It is really great when it has just been topped with the icing...we are often a little naughty and take a slice just when the icing is pouring down the sides!
