Gluten-Free Cakes — Menu Plan May 2

By · Print This Post Print This Post

Cakes1This month we’re starting a new theme for the Gluten-Free Menu Swap:  Cakes! It’s the season of celebrations, isn’t it? Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Graduations, Birthdays, etc.

This week, I found a lot of recipes for gluten-free cakes with fruit and vegetables baked in. It’s a great way to increase the nutritional value of your cake, but also keep your cake moist. I think any of these would be great for a Mother’s Day celebration.
