Gluten Free, Vegan Chocolate Cake

Gluten Free Chocolate Cupcake

This is a simple recipe for chocolate cake that you can use for everyday cakes, or make into something special by making layers or making cup cakes.



1 1/2 cups Gluten Free flour - I used Dove Farms White Self Raising Flour Blend (I still added the bicarbonate of soda)

1 cup caster sugar

1 tsp bicarbonate soda

1/4 cup cocoa

1tsp vanilla

1tsp cider vinegar

1/2 tsp Xantham Gum

6 tbs melted sunflower margarine -  I use Pure

1 cup non dairy milk - Koko is good

Preheat oven to 350 F or 177 C

Sift flour, sugar, soda and cocoa into a bowl. Add vanilla, vinegar and melted margarine.

Briefly mix with a spoon then pour one cup non diary milk over and mix with a fork until all ingredients are entirely moist. It makes quite a runny looking batter but don't worry!

For cake, bake for 30 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean. For cupcakes bake for about 15 minutes but do test them with a toothpick.

For cupcakes cool in the tin for 10 minutes, then on a wire rack. For cake, cool in the tin and invert on a plate when no longer 'too hot to handle'.
