I posted on eb and asked for some chocolate cake recipes as my kids love it (but I don't). here are the ones that were shared. so far I've only made Kerry's (it came out a little dry for me, probably my silly oven, but the kids love it anyway). going to try another today for a playdate this afternoon...
Kerry's GF Chocolate Cake
125g butter (i use dairy free)
1/2 cup of sugar
3/4 teaspoon of vanilla
2 cups SR GF flour (white wings i use)
1/3 cup of milk (soy milk)
1 tablespoon of cocoa
Mix butter , sugar and vanilla beat in one egg at a time
Add flour and milk alternately beat until smooth. Bake in 180 oven for about 30 mins or until springy
I have also changed it taken out the cocoa and added cinnamon and apple and it makes the yummiest apple cinnamon cake sprinkle a bit of cinnamon sugar on top before you bake it.
Sarita's Chocolate Cake
Gluten free, soy free, egg free, dairy free. The cornflour can be replaced with arrowroot or potato flour.
Makes one 24 cm cake
Preheat the oven to 190 C
Line a tin with baking paper.
½ cup boiling water (125 ml)
35 gm cocoa or 35 grams of carob powder
90 grams butter, nuttelex or margarine
220 grams sugar
6 tbps of apple sauce
80 grams ground almonds
80 grams rice flour
40 grams brown rice flour
40 grams maize cornflour
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp guar gum or xanthan gum
Add the carob or cocoa to the boiling water. Leave to cool.
Beat the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Then add the apple sauce. The mixture will look curdled but that won’t affect the cake’s taste or texture.
Sift the flours, baking powder and gum together.
Add the cooled water and carob/cocoa mixture and beat. Add almonds.
Beat in the flours.
Pour into tin. Bake for 40 minutes. Cool in tin.
