Fabulous Gluten Free Chocolate Cake! November 2, 2020Leave a comment

Here is my favorite Chocolate Cake recipe. I bring it to parties all the time and people LOVE it! They don’t have any idea it’s Gluten Free!

Ingredients:

  • 2 1/2 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Flour (NOT the one with the xanthum gum already included)
  • 1 tsp Xanthum gum
  • 1/2 cup plus 1 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 2 cups natural organic sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sheep yogurt (you can use sour cream if no one is lactose intolerant)
  • 1/2 cup canned, full fat coconut milk
  • 2 tsps pure vanilla extract

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350, grease and flour 2 (9 inch) round cake pans.
  2. Sift flour, cocoa powder, Xanthum gum, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed for at least 2 minutes or until light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then mix in the yogurt, milk, and vanilla.
  5. Gradually beat in the flour mixture until just blended. Do not overbeat. Pour into pans.
  6. Bake 35 – 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool in pan 10 minutes, then remove and cool completely on wire rack.

I serve with ice cream – coconut milk ice cream if you’re dairy free, or any other of your choice.

You can also simply sift a bit of confectionary sugar over the top of the cake as a frosting.

We also sometimes add a tiny bit of strawberry jam between the layers when we sprinkle with the confectionary sugar.

Have fun with it!

Best of Health,

Kathi
