Sometimes you just want to have a good chocolate cake. Here is my recipe for a wonderful gluten-free, dairy-free chocolate almond cake.
Gather the following dry ingredients:
1/2 cup corn flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup rice flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
5 teaspoons cocoa powder
1 big pinch of salt
Mix the dry ingredients together uniformly.
Now add the following wet ingredients:
1/2 cup olive oil
3 large eggs
4 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 teaspoons almond extract
Mix all of the wet and dry ingredients together.
Have a greased cake pan ready (lightly greased with olive oil). Now, to provide the cake with some lift, add 4 teaspoons of white vinegar and give it a quick whisk. The vinegar will react with the baking soda and will make tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide. Be sure to mix in the vinegar and quickly transfer the mixture to the cake pan.
Bake the cake in a preheated 350°F oven for approximately 40 minutes.
Once out of the oven, let the cake cool slightly and flip it over on to a plate.
Doesn't it look good?
