very easy gluten-free vegan chocolate cake


We were craving chocolate cake recently and found this recipe, but of course I changed it a bit to our own tastes and what we had on hand. (We made a different frosting, but I left that up to my son Joel, so you'll have to ask him about that.)

You'll need:
  • 1 cup rice flour
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon xanthan gum (a natural thickener)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup neutral-flavored oil (I used grapeseed)
  • 2 cups soy milk
Do this:

Preheat the oven to 180 C and oil a 10-inch springform pan and line the bottom with baking paper. First mix the dry ingredient and then the wet ingredients separately, then mix them together and bake for at least 45 minutes. Cool and frost. (Sounds like winter, and winter's coming, folks!)

Enjoy that sucker! And the most fun was making it together with my sons.
