    Have you tried this recipe using Nayonaise or some other mayo substitute? Perhaps regular yogurt?

      HI Donnita –
      We have not tried substitutions, however, I would guess yogurt would work – if you experiment let us know how it goes!

    Can I use the pancake gluten free mix instead – is there a recipe for chocolate cake I can alter?

    Would this work with the vanilla cake mix?

      We have not tried this recipe with our Vanilla Cake Mix, but thanks for the suggestion — we will try it!

    This is the first gluten free cake that turned out great(even for those that don’t like gluten free). Love this! It is always a hit. We make it using veganaise and it always turns out great! A dark chocolate dream that is always moist!
