Fruit-sweetened, Gluten-Free Cake

Ok this one was a little weird. I had a friend who by doctor’s orders had to cut out all kinds of sugar and wheat for an allergy test. Soooo after asking her about 100 questions about what was on- and off-limits, I devised a cake that was sweetened with only fruit. That being said, FRUIT IS SUGAR. I mean, don’t get me wrong, it is fibers and gums and water and stuff, but it’s got sugar. The thing is how that sugar is processed in the body blah blah blah.

Actual text from a friend reading "Erika! I have an emergency! I need your Taco Dip recipe for the game on Sunday. You know, the pinkish one with lettuce and black olives that everyone in WI makes."

I don’t know where it originated but my friend is right; Wisconsin is crazy about “taco dip.” If you are not from Wisconsin, it’s almost what it sounds likeyou’re your idea of a taco is closer to that of Taco Bell’s that Danny Trejo’s. Subtract any meat, substitute corn chips for the shell, and put all the fillings into neatly arranged casserole layers and you have yourself a taco dip. Perhaps an appetizer to some, but my family used to have this as a main course. I never really cared for it too much until I started making a vegan version when I was in high school.
