Chocolate Cake (Gluten-free, Egg-free, Dairy Free)

12:41 PM

1 1/2 cups All-Purpose Gluten-Free Flour (Namaste from Costco works great)
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup Dutch-process cocoa or natural cocoa
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon espresso powder, optional
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tablespoon vinegar
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 cup cold water

Preheat your oven to 350°F. Lightly grease an 8" square or 9" round pan that's at least 2" deep. If you don't have a 2"-deep pan in either of those sizes, use a 9" square pan.

Whisk the dry ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk the vanilla, vinegar, vegetable oil, and water in a separate bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients, stirring until thoroughly combined. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.

Bake the cake for 30 to 35 minutes, until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, or with a few moist crumbs clinging to it.
Serve the cake right from the pan; warm from the oven.
Frost with whipped chocolate coconut cream or serve with coconut ice cream and coconut fudge sauce.

Yield: about 16 servings.
