Would anyone have a recipe for a gluten-free fruitcake?
I’m also looking for a foolproof recipe for a rich dark, moist gingerbread cake/loaf.
What flour could I use to convert to a gluten-free version?

Thank you Purplehat,
Is Nuttelex that Nutella choc hazlenut spread?
I’m guessing that’s a 375gm packet of fruit? Or is it optional?
The pear fruit and juice should be interesting.December 20, 2008 at 12:52 pm #383385TeacupMember
I think Nuttelex is used instead of butter, is found with the butter and margarine in supermarket (and it is not nutella) …..December 20, 2008 at 2:40 pm #383386purplehatMember
Sunflower, Teacup is right, I meant the dairy-free margarine. I wish I could eat Nutella. 😉
The fruit I guess she just means the packs of dried mixed fruit. She usually uses dried currents in her other recipes, which I then boil for 10 minutes before using.. I’m not sure if she means to do that in this recipe though.. sorry I’m not being more helpful! I’d just use it dried in this case, I think. Hey, it’s only once a year. 😆 I really should give it a try.
