chocolate cake magic

this cake is my no-fail go-to quick and easy and fulfilling dessert. full of chocolate flavor, moist and crumbly, delectable any way you dress it up.

this recipe is for two 9" round pans, but can easily be halved.
you can make a layer cake or two separate splendors.

Chocolate Cake Magic
  • 2 cups white rice flour
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons tapioca flour (if you don't have tapioca, just use more rice flour)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 3/4 cup almond or coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons real vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup oil
PREHEAT oven to 350 F
slightly grease 2 pans
combine dry ingredients and mix well
in a separate bowl, combine wet ingredients
add the wet to the dry, mix well
split the batter into the two pans
bake 24-28 minutes
(sometimes it takes longer, check with toothpick in the center, should come out clean when done)

other ideas: sprinkle with confectioners' sugar, add nuts, cover with icing, strawberries, coconut milk ice cream.... it really goes well with almost anything you can think of!
