*If you want to make this nut-free you could try a gluten-free flour blend like Bob's Red Mill. I haven't tried it yet, so it's not tested but I think it would work.
**You can find tapioca flour (aka starch) at your local health food store or online. It's always in the baking section. Bob's Red Mill is a good brand.
***Organic raspberry powder is a nice addition for a slightly pink cake. I have included a link in the blog post above for the brand I used. You can also use red natural food colouring or pomegranate powder for the colour.
I've made these into cupcakes and they take the same amount of time to bake 12 cupcakes.
