    i used to live with a roommate who had celiac and was saddened by the lack of treats she got to eat, though her white bean coffee cake was even better than the real thing. flourless chocolate cakes were also made every once in awhile; i wish i had this recipe back then! also, one not-so-fun-fact about cooking for celiac friends is that the gluten seeps into the non stick surfaces of pans and some plastics and even that can make people with the disease sick. Hi! Could I replace the Frangelico for something else? I m thinking of doind this cake for my little sister birthday. Can I replace it or just skip it?
