Devil's Food Cake

Yo peeps. Miss me? Well, I made you a cake. Actually I made it for my dad's birthday. He wanted it to be exactly like the ones we get from our bakery in town. It was. 

Not only was it the most incredible chocolate cake I ever made, it was also completely impossible to detect its gluten-free-ness. Everyone was speechless. But maybe that was because of Nemo's decorating powers.

You can check out more info on the decorating on the other blog

I'm still working on perfecting the frosting, so I'll get back on you with that. I kind of, um... wasn't writing down the recipe as I went. Heh. Sorry. For now you can try out this seven minute frosting or this two ingredient buttercream

By the way, I discovered this awesome gluten-free flour mix that you can make yourself and I'm now keeping it on hand for myself at all times. It's really good.

Gluten-free Devil's Food Cake

1/2 cup lard, butter, or shortening (I used lard. This aint no diet program, people)
3/4 cups chocolate chips or chopped chocolate
1/2 cup coconut milk (you can use real milk if you must)
3/4 cup sugar
3 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup dutch process cocoa 
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour (you could probably use the same amount of cake flour)

Preheat oven to 350ยบ. Grease two 8 inch pans and dust with cocoa powder.
Melt together the lard and chocolate chips in the microwave or on the stove, mixing until smooth. Add the coconut milk, eggs, sugar, and vanilla and whisk until smooth. Sift in the cocoa, soda, salt, powder, and flour and mix until smooth (you don't need to worry about over-mixing gluten-free flour). Divide into the two pans. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

  1. I know this was a while ago, but I have a couple of questions. Is there a recipe for the white filling? and, the link to the g-free flour mix is not working. Help? Thanks so much. This looks amazing!

  2. Hi! I would like to try this recipe, however, the link for gluten free mix is not working :(
    I am hoping you can share this mix so I can make my son his gluten free birthday cake.
    Thank you so much in advance


  3. I made this today and halved the recipe, used Hershey's Dark chocolate cocoa powder, and instead of the semi-sweet chocolate chips, added some dark chocolate candy left over from Christmas. I did and frequently use the gluten free flour mixture you recommend. You were not kidding about this being fantastic, it was! Not only the best gluten free chocolate cake I have tasted but the best chocolate cake period--in my opinion.
    Great job!!! Thank you for all the time and work you put forth to bring this to us.

  4. Especially in summer, when salads really taste good, eat as much salad as possible. Here, once again, beware of adding calories. Most salad dressings simply crawl with calories.

  5. I made this cake today for my mother's birthday, and let me just say the cake was the best cake I've ever had! Thank you so much for the amazing recipe!

  6. The state's largest health insurance company, BCBS of Tennessee, has a lot to say about what Tennessee health insurance will do with health care reform. Let's take Chest and Tricep Workout for Beginners look at the positive and negative results their study found.

  7. While many Americans complain about the high cost of their health insurance, many When Do Babies Hold Their Head Up unaware of the high deductible health plan concept. High deductible health plans allow the insureds to lower their monthly premium while still having coverage that will protect against major claims.
