I have this carrot cake in the oven right now!  Mady my own flour mix (as per Sue Sheperd's "Gluten-free Cooking") with 2 parts rice flour, 1 part chickpea flour, 1 part tapioca flour.  Will let you know how it turns out  ;D....

What do you think about omitting the eggs in this one - or anyone used egg replacer in the Thermomix for cakes?  How do they turn out?

Sorry, I've never used egg replacer so I wouldn't know.

Don't know - but it would pay to contact Thermomix in Australia via http://www.thermomix.com.au/01-contactus.html they have nutritionists who may be able to help.

This cake was such a hit with everyone, including my husband who usually doesn't expect too much of gluten free baking!  I am making it again right now.

Ok Karen, it is my turn for my one senior moment question!!  :-[

What is the ratio that you replace the apple sauce with in your cake recipes? I get you can replace up to half the fat and half the sugar...but with how much apple sauce? I'm not enough of a foodie to work that one out!

i just replace with the same - so i weigh the apple sauce first - if i have 200g of apple sauce then i put in 100g less of sugar and 100g less of oil - does that make sense?

Thanks Karen you are a champ.  That is easy enough....even for me  ;D ;D ;D ;D

I have a heap of baking to do today if miss 2 will let me, she has had ear aches for the last 24 hours (screaming with them :'() so off to the Dr today. We had roast pork the other night and I made a heap of Apple Sauce with the intent of using it in baking so that is ready to go ;)

Just made this - it is good, but I reckon it'd be even better served with cream, crème fraîche or ice cream (although I suppose that defeats the dairy-free aspect). Sadly I didn't have any in - must plan better next time :)
