      I used white bean flour for besan and white rice for the cornflour. I like the cake. It was very good not xanthan gums and no tapioca flour which are in so many recipes and my family is allergic to. I used 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp nutmeg. I also added 2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 cup of coconut .

      I made this cake for someone's birthday at work and it got rave reviews. The only thing I did differently was to use store bought cream cheese frosting instead of the orange frosting. Thanks for sharing!

      Taste OK though wouldn't make this one again. I used 1/2 white 1/2 brown rice flour like another member for the corn flour as it also says that is a sub on the cornflour page. We are corn free. I don't suggest this substitution as I belive it along with the besan flour is what made ours so crubbly. I used yogurt instead of sour cream. Canola oil, egg replacer. No nuts but would be good with them. I did add pineapple like another reviewer which was a good addition. Cream cheese frosting is so good. From what I have made Carrot Cake (Gluten-Free, Casein/Dairy-Free) turned out better.
