My Favorite Vegan, Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake Recipe
You will need:
- 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
- 1 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1.5 cups organic sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup almond milk
- 1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup hot water
- Vegan, gluten-free chocolate frosting
- Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and grease a 9-inch cake pan.
- In a large bowl, combine the gluten-free flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
- In a separate bowl, mix together the almond milk, melted coconut oil, and vanilla extract.
- Gradually add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, mixing until just combined.
- Slowly pour in the hot water, stirring continuously until the batter is smooth.
- Pour the batter into the prepared cake pan and bake for 30-35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
- Allow the cake to cool completely before applying the vegan, gluten-free chocolate frosting.
For a healthier option, you can substitute the organic sugar with coconut sugar or another natural sweetener. Always ensure to use a gluten-free flour blend that already contains xanthan gum, which acts as a binding agent in gluten-free baking.
This cake is a crowd-pleaser, and I promise you won't miss the dairy or gluten.
