Okay, this is a chocolate cake, plain and simple, but my favorite way to bake it is as a bundt cake!! It's so pretty!! But anyway you bake it, it is delicious!!! Friends love it and always say, "Wow! This is gluten free?" I love those 4 words!
2 eggs - put in mixer and start mixing eggs while you get the sour cream ready, then add:
1 C sour cream
1/2 C oil
2 tsp vanilla
Mix this well, for about a minute then add dry ing.
2 C GF flour mix (using the Asian white flour)
1/2 tsp xanthan gum
2 C sugar
3/4 c. cocoa
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
Mix well, scraping the side and bottom of bowl for about a minute.
Then add 1/2 C boiling water slowly while it is mixing. Mix for one more minute.
Spray your bundt pan (or whatever pan you want) well and add the mix and bake!
Bundt pan - 50 minutes
9x13 - 35-40
When it's done I flip it over and let it cool about 15-20 min (sometimes we can't wait that long!!)
Here is the frosting recipe. I like to make it thin and pour it on. If you want it thicker just add more powdered sugar.
2 Tbls butter - melt in small saucepan over med heat. When melted add:
1/4 c granulated sugar - stir (I use a wisk) for about 30 seconds so the sugar melts. Take off the heat. Add:
2 Tbls cocoa and mix well. Then add:
2 Tbls milk and mix. Then add:
1/4 powdered sugar and wisk really well until all the lumps are gone.
Pour over your cake and sprinkle with a little powdered sugar if you like!! or sprinkles are fun too!! In fact if you want you can just sprinkle the powdered sugar and not add frosting!
