ISO Wheatless Desserts

I have a friend who is allergic to wheat. I have made the usual puddings, jello, etc., but would like something more like a cake or brownie. Does anyone have a recipe for a good wheatless dessert? Thanks!!

Can your friend eat nuts? I have two good recipes, one an orange cake and the other a flourless chocolate cake, but both have large quantities of nut meal. I shall get my brain into gear and post them this evening (UK time).

well, it's not a cakey dessert, but i like to whip a half pint of cream and mix it with a box of peach jell-o, and fold in diced strawberries.
another goodie is cool whip, lime jell-o, and canned crushed pineapple.
i believe that life would not be complete sans comfy 'ol tee-shirts, the Golden Girls, and the color pink

I appreciate your help kyles and luvs_food.

kyles: The chocolate cake sounds great and, yes, I would like the recipe. My friend is not allergic to nuts and loves chocolate!

luvs_food: I have tried jello recipes, but your idea of peach jello and strawberries is a combination I have never used. I will definitely give it a try.

Again, thanks to both of you for your help!!
