MOIST CHOCOLATE CAKE – GLUTEN FREE OPTION
8 inch pan.
1.5 cups cake flour
1 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt (I add a bit more)
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
½ cup vegetable oil
1 cup water
Put all dry ingredients in a bowl and stir through with a whisk.
Add the vinegar then oil.
Add water a little at a time while mixing by hand until its all mixed. Dont over mix
Bake at 190ºC for 45 mins.
This batter is a little thick so don’t stress and add more liquid.
Baking time is never just 45 mins unless you mixed a single batch. Bigger cakes takes an hour usually.
Also good for cupcakes…about 20 mins
I have made this into different flavours, take out cocoa (I add a bit more flour then) and add vanilla.
If you substitute the water for 100% orange juice it makes an amazing zesty cake… cream cheese frosting is great for this.
