(free recipe) One Bowl Dairy-Free/Gluten-Free Chocolate Cake




After creating a recipe for gluten-free vanilla layer cake, two things came to mind: cake is awesome and I should bake more cake.

My husband's birthday gave me the perfect excuse to bake more cake! (Although, honestly, did I really need a reason?) I thought I'd try a dairy-free chocolate version of the yellow cake I recently made. So I replaced the butter with liquid vegetable oil, reduced the amount of potato starch, and added cocoa powder. Finally, I swapped the milk for coffee.

The results worked really well. Like the original, the batter came together quickly and the cake baked up high with a delicate crumb. The coffee adds a depth of flavor without turning it into a mocha cake. If you don't like coffee, the cake works well made with water or a dairy-free milk. (Of course, if dairy isn't an issue for you, just use milk.)

Since this is a small-batch recipe, it's a perfect recipe to make whenever because...cake.
