Gluten Free Chocolate Cake

Chocolate is just one of those things you cannot live without!  My good friend is allergic to gluten and planning on attending a mutual friends birthday party, not wanting her to feel left out, I decided to make her a chocolate cake that she could eat. This perfectly light and delicious cake is perfect for any chocolate cake lover and you won't even notice it's gluten free. See some of my other gluten free recipes and subscribe for more great gluten free recipes to come. Enjoy!

Dry (in own bowl)
2 cups Gluten Free Flour ( I buy Bob's Red Mill, its not organic, but its "all natural)
1 cup cane sugar (if grainy sit in water for a little bit to help break it down, if this is the case add in with liquids rather than dry ingredients ;)
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
1/3 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt

Wet ingredients: (in own bowl)
1/3 cup veggie oil
2/3 cup water
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp vanilla

1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees, next mix dry ingredients and dry ingredients in separate bowls
2) Slowly mix wet ingredients into wet and whisk til clumps are very small
3) Baking times will be different for what ever you make, the only way to know if your cake is done is if a fork or toothpick is poked in and comes out with out any liquid. Bigger cakes take up to 45 mins.
4) Frost, see recipe above for a lovely frosting to try out.
