"Made for a friend with celiac disease. I managed to get this cake to be light and fluffy, not the dense brick that most GF cakes become. This recipe is adapted from a red velvet cake recipe, but there were so many changes that it is pretty much my own creation now. Frost with your favorite buttercream or cream cheese frosting." — evenstareleni
