I wanted to make this recipe without wheat so I subbed oat flour, and then increased the baking powder to counteract the relative heaviness of oat flour. I don't think I needed to do this, in retrospect, because they turned out like cake! Very delicious cake! I did use 2 cups of brown sugar, but didn't pack it down. Also, I used coconut oil instead of shortening, since it has the same consistency and would bring out the coconut flavor. Only giving four stars because I made so many changes. Hoping this review helps others who may be thinking of going wheat-free or using coconut oil. It came out amazing and I definitely will be making this again!
