Ma''am, thank you so much for the recipe. It''s the best of all gluten free recipes for cakes I have tried so far and it''s so simple to make!. The only addition I did was mixed 2 Tbsps of flax seed powder to about 5 Tbsps of water, refrigerated it for about 15 mins and added it to the wet ingredients. Given mine is a microwave/oven combo, I preheated it to about 150 degrees for 10 mins and baked for about 40 mins
