I made this cake recently using Bob Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Flour. Everything else was the same. I have substituted that flour for many other regular cake recipes and they have all turned out really great. This one, I have to say, was dry. I think it really needs more butter - probably at least an extra 1/2 cup. Apparently I have attached a review to the icing recipe instead of the cake recipe. My apologies. I will look back to see if i can find the proper recipe. It is one that is linked to this icing. Don't have time to look right now.
Yumm! This frosting was so creamy, just what I wanted! I used it on KITTENCAL's cupcakes <a href="/116989">Easy and Good One-Bowl Chocolate Chip Fudge Cupcakes!</a>. I was looking for an easy chocolate buttercream frosting that was creamy and didn't need to be made on a stove. If you would like to see more reviews, I've realized this recipe is exactly the same as <a href="/44126">Chocolate Buttercream Frosting</a>, except that one has 1/2 tsp. more vanilla! Thank you for the easy and yummy frosting!
