Ever since I had cake that made me sick I have craved having cake that won't make me sick. I truly try to avoid sugar and chocolate but I really wanted chocolate cake yesterday and I had me some chocolate cake.
Thanks to a recipe on allrecipes.com submitted by Bridget Brookemeer I made the following...I adapted the flour and did not use chocolate chips, otherwise it is the same.
Egg-free Dairy-free Nut-free Cake
Mix the following:
1 1/2 cups rice flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
1 tsp. baking soda
Make a well in the center of the dry mix and add:
5 tab. oil
1 tab. white vinegar (I used rice vinnegar)
1 tsp. vanilla
1 cup cold water
Stir until smooth and bake in a greased 8X8 inch pan in a preheated 350 deg. oven for 30- 35 min. Cool on a rack.
I craved some frosting too so I made some using Spectrum shortening, powdered sugar, cocoa, vanilla, pinch of salt, and water...I measured nothing, sorry...I also added some chopped pecans that I had warmed in the microwave for a minute...
TO DIE FOR......................yum yum. Who needs gluten and dairy and eggs? Not ME!
