    what could i offer to a Muslim friend in the way of home baked cakes, that would not transgress the rules? I expect eggs, vegetable oils and wheat flour to be acceptable, and other flavourings such as fruits or nuts. Is this right? I regularly accept food from them and wish to reciprocate without offence.
