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 Cake1/2 cup lard, butter, or shortening (I used lard. This aint no diet program, people)3/4 cups chocolate chips or chopped chocolate1/2 cup coconut milk (you can use real milk if you must)3/4 cup sugar3 eggs1 teaspoon vanilla1/2 cup dutch process cocoa1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda1/4 teaspoon salt1 teaspoon baking powder1 cup gluten-free all-purpose flour (you could probably use the same amount of cake flour)Preheat oven to 350º. 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.
