Gluten Free Chocolate Cake
Well, a birthday wouldn't be complete without a chocolate cake would it?!
Gluten Free Chocolate Sandwich Cake
6oz caster sugar
couple of drops of vanilla essence
1 teaspoon baking powder
6oz gluten free plain flour
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
3 tablespoons rice milk
chocolate spread to stick it all together
1. Preheat oven to 170C. Grease and line two 8" sandwich tins.
2. Cream together the margarine, sugar and vanilla.
3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then add the rest of the ingredients.
4. Divide between tins, bake for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.
We make this cake quite a bit, as it's easy to remember the ingredients (6oz of everything - 666!), it takes minutes to whip up, and it tastes pretty good. Normally, we just sandwich it together with chocolate spread in the middle, then dust the top with icing sugar but for a special occasion and extra gooey-ness, we put the chocolate spread on the top and the middle. Yumyum. I particularly recommend Plamil's chocolate orange spread for this!
I think you could make this with ordinary wheat flour, but you wouldn't need the rice milk.
