Gluten-free: is a health consideration I take to heart, and when I can, I prefer to use recipes that are already gluten-free, rather than making multiple substitutions. I use corn tortillas. I use rice instead of pasta. In this case, when I want cake- I use a nut flour to make nut torte. And since a torte is traditionally flourless, so there are no changes to make this gluten-free. (Bonus, it is also dairy free!) Please note: nuts other than almonds may be substituted.
