As a Bed and Breakfast owner I was always looking for good recipes for my gluten free guests.  This recipe looks great.  I will frost with lemon frosting.  Thanks for the recipe.

Hi.  Recipe looks yummy but how much water do I add and do you mean that I add the whole orange (minus zest) with pips etc.
Also wondered if you have tried it with rice flour instead of tapioca?
