'Traditional' Chocolate Cake

Fluffy. Moist. Melt in your mouth and all of the other words and phrases when you think 'chocolate cake.' This embodies most of those. At least, the ones that come to my mind ;) As I try to remain humble in my baking endeavors... this one was quite amazing. Like, eat out of the baking pan amazing...

OK, so I'll work on the humble part.

'Traditional' Chocolate Cake: 

1 1/3 cup brown rice flour 
3/4 cup organic cane sugar 
2 1/2 tbls cocoa powder 
1 tsp baking powder 
1/4 tsp sea salt 
1/4 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk
1 egg
1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)


In a large mixing bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients, excluding the coconut oil, together mix well. Then add in the dry ingredients and blend thoroughly. Lastly, pour the melted coconut oil in and combine well. Grease a small glass cake pan or pie dish with coconut oil, pour the batter in and bake for about 30 minutes (or until a toothpick comes out clean) at 350 degrees.

All done ;)
I titled this 'traditional' because it's the first gluten/dairy free chocolate cake that tastes like a chocolate cake that I remember eating when I use to eat the 'real deal.' It may not be primal - but I will allow myself to eat it evvvery so often... even out of the pan...

Enjoy ;)
