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 🙂

Well, a birthday wouldn’t be complete without a chocolate cake would it?!

Gluten Free Chocolate Sandwich Cake

60z margarine
6oz caster sugar
couple of drops of vanilla essence
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking powder
6oz gluten free plain flour
1 tablespoon cocoa powder
3 tablespoons rice milk
chocolate spread to stick it all together

1. Preheat oven to 170C. Grease and line two 8″ sandwich tins.
2. Cream together the margarine, sugar and vanilla.
3. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then add the rest of the ingredients.
4. Divide between tins, bake for approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

We make this cake quite a bit, as it’s easy to remember the ingredients (6oz of everything – 666!), it takes minutes to whip up, and it tastes pretty good. Normally, we just sandwich it together with chocolate spread in the middle, then dust the top with icing sugar but for a special occasion and extra gooey-ness, we put the chocolate spread on the top and the middle. Yumyum. I particularly recommend Plamil’s chocolate orange spread for this!

I think you could make this with ordinary wheat flour, but you wouldn’t need the rice milk.
