15 Healthy Gluten Free Cake Recipes

All Of Your Favourite Cakes Without The Gluten

Gluten intolerances shouldn’t stop you from enjoying one of life’s great pleasures: cake. Currently, one in 100 people have coeliac disease in the UK, with roughly half a million who haven’t been diagnosed and may be struggling with symptoms. Although free from sections in supermarkets are steadily growing, to enjoy a properly-delicious gluten-free cake, you often have to make it yourself.

Gluten free flour replacements such as almond flour, coconut flour and buckwheat are more readily available but a lot of these are also high in calories or carbs too. With Lo-Dough, you can create indulgent gluten free cakes while keeping the calories and carbs to a minimum!
