I learned how to make the original version of this cake when I was 10 years old. It's that easy! As far as my sister and I are concerned, it's not a real birthday cake unless it's this recipe with seven minute frosting. :D
- 1 1⁄2 cups gluten-free flour (Gluten-Free Flour Blend)
- 1⁄2 cup cocoa
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 3⁄4 teaspoon guar gum or 3⁄4 teaspoon xanthan gum
- 5 tablespoons cooking oil
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 cup water
- Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl.
- Add all liquid ingredients and mix well.
- Bake in greased and floured 9" square pan (or lined with waxed paper), at 350 F, for 30 - 35, or until toothpick inserted comes out clean.
LOVE IT!!! Super easy. I make cup cakes and freeze them for when my kids go to b-day parties. I have made this for all their b-days this year and no one noticed. I add chocholate chips for a little exra chocolate.
This cake worked perfectly! Quick, easy, and delicious! I used 1 cup of white rice flour and 1/2 a cup of tapioca flour. I baked the cake in a loaf pan (for 50 mins) as I'm new to GF baking and don't have a proper cake pan! It turned out great though and I sliced it up and poured chocolate glaze over it for Thanksgiving Dinner. I made a test cupcake with it and it tasted great so hopefully the in-laws gobble it up! I will definitely used this recipe again.
Wonderful and easy! This reminds me of the wacky cake recipe. We're egg free here so the first time I used Ener-G egg replacer(1bsp + 4tbsp water) and then the next time i used applesauce(for 2 eggs so 1/2 cup). I also added some chocolate chunks and made them into cupcakes. I baked for maybe 17min. I also used Bobs Red Mill gluten free flour and it turned out great. When it's raw, the batter is very beany tasting but when cooked, you cant tell. It turned out so delicious. All my kids loved it and only 1 is gluten free. Thanks!!
