Lots of people have asked me for this recipe so here it is:


390g gluten free plain flour

440g brown sugar

6 tbsp cocoa powder

2tsps baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

500ml sweetened soya milk

185ml sunflower oil

2 tbsp cider vinegar

2 tsp vanilla extract

1.  Grease 23cm round deep cake tin, line base.  Preheat oven to 180C/ 350F/Gas Mk 4

2. Mix together all the dry ingredients.  When well mixed, mix in the wet ingredients and beat until there are no lumps

3.  Cook for about 40 mins until a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean.

4.  When it’s cool, make whatever fancy icing you want for the top or cheat, like I do, and use dairy free chocolate spread!


Let me know if you make it and you like it, and feel free to share any fancy icing recipes that you make to go on the top 🙂

Ooh! Thanks for sharing that (even though I didn’t get to the leaving do). My MIL is on a gluten free diet and I want to make her up a basket of ingredients and recipes for Xmas – this will be perfect.
Thanks again.

I love this recipe, it works really well. Have made approx 20 muffins in a 160 deg fan oven for 30 mins….I say approx because the ones that get eaten before they’ve cooled down don’t count. ahem.
Top cake mix, thanks.
