This looks so good! Sign me up for fixing this tomorrow night... it looks so good, I think I might actually dream about it.


No Frills Chocolate Cake

This one comes to my cookbook via Gluten Free Mommy. I figure you guys will be drooling over this one too! in Love

Let me know how it turns out. I have just about given up on ever having a decent chocolate cake again, even the Cherrybrook one ( whose non GF mix I loved so much, even frosting less!) it is so oooooooooooooo dry, I gag on it, even topped with ice cream. I tried to add eggs to it to make it mor palatable cut not any help!

So let me know, I have all the ingredients, but I just threw away half a Cherrybrook cake ( at almost $6 for the mix) so I am leary to try right now. pale

I had no sorghum, so I subbed corn starch in this one. (mom said I should have used fine corn flour or just rice flour)

Other than my making this cake fall in the oven (I have a bad habit of this... remind me next time I make a cake to not go in the kitchen, or walk around in the bedroom behind it... Smile The cake came out beautifully! I even left a review on her site Shocked

I froze 3/4ths of the cake, and made the icing last night to go with it, so after we had some Salad Nicoise, we had chocolate cake with icecream! It goes great together with the icecream, so I know I kept those cake crumbs for something!! LOL (I'll be making myself a "Blizzard" like they do at Dairy Queen!! lol!)

This probably wouldn't have fallen with it having the sorghum. Cornstarch tends to be a bit 'flakey' when you use it in some recipes...

To be honest, the cake batter itself made up so thick I wasn't sure if it would really come out like it should Suspect, but it did! cheers It came out all fluffy in the center like a "box cake" that is glutenous!

What about the moistness? That is my main concern with chocolate cakes, and why I won't waste anymore money on Cherrybrooks.
