But oh, the sweet taste of triumph. It's even better than actually eating it.
While the texture is not quite the same as the original, at least not so far as I can remember, the taste not so sweet, my word, I personally think this one is even better. The taste is a little more grown-up, and the texture, there is a little more tooth to it. I can't wait for my potluck. I think I'll be showing everyone just how well you can eat even when you're gluten-free!
With no further adu, allow me to present my version of the Ex's cake.
GF Chocolate Cake with Hot Sauce
In an 8" square baking dish combine:
2/3 cup GF flour *see note
1/3 cup sweet rice flour
2 tsp xanthan gum
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 cup sugar
In a small bowl, combine:
1/4 cocoa powder
1/2 cup melted hard margarine (use butter if desired)
To flour mixture add:
2 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup almond milk (use dairy or other alternative milk if desired)
Will make a very thick batter. Make sure it is spread to all edges and corners for even cooking.
In additional bowl, combine:
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup cocoa
Sprinkle sugar and cocoa over batter. Pour 1 1/2 cups boiling water over the entire mixture.
Bake at 350 F for 70 minutes.
*GF flour used:
I made a slightly different flour mix this time. It is fairly similar to the one I normally use, so that should also work - cooking times may need to be adjusted.
3 parts corn flour
2 parts soy flour
3 parts potato starch
1 part sweet rice flour
