Gluten Free Chocolate Cake - Beat it Well

Recipe submitted by MichaB on July 8th, 2010

Being gluten free means sometimes baking can be a little compromised! (If any one has been able to crack gluten free pastry I would really appreciate the recipe). Anyway this cake is the best. You can ice it or eat it hot with yoghurt and fruit OR cream.

Prep time:   15 minutes
Cook time:   25 minutes
Servings:   20cm cake

2 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1/4 cup oil (I use Canola)
1sp vanilla essence
1/2 cup milk
1 cup plain GF flour ( I use Rice - the texture is good)
1/2 tsp GF baking powder

Oven, 180
20cm cake tin, lined with baking paper

You just need one big bowl for this.

Beat the eggs
Add the sugar - beat it well
Add the cocoa - beat it well and add the vanilla and oil - beat it well.

Add half a cup of flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/4 cup milk. Beat it well.
Add the other half a cup of flour and 1/4 cup milk. Beat it well.

Pour it into the tin and bake for 25 minutes (fan forced) or 30 minutes (normally bake)

Varaitions: add some chocolate bits at the end, this makes it gooey

      Really nice outcome with this cake, its moist and tasted fab! I had to cook it for 45 minutes though and this could be because I have an old oven. Thanks for the recipe im definitly adding this one to my collection

      Yum!! This turned out so well! I used almond milk as I am also dairy free but it still worked out great. Thanks so much for the recipe.
