The Ultimate ‘Free From’ Birthday Cake
1 ½ cups gluten free self raising flour
⅓ cup cocoa
½ TSP bicarb
1 cup sugar
½ cup oil (I use rapeseed)
1 cup water
2 TSP vanilla extract
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
Icing sugar and dairy free butter for the filling. I'm terrible with measurements for butter icing as I just chuck it all in!
Heat oven to 190 fan and grease 2 20cm tins
Sift flour, cocoa, bicarb, salt and sugar.
In a jug mix oil, water and vanilla.
Pour liquid into dry mix and stir.
Add vinegar and stir very gently and briefly.
Pour into tins and cook for 15-18 mins.
Cool on wire racks and sandwich with butter icing.
I doubled up on this as I made an excessively large 4 tier version!
I will be using this recipe again this year for her party - I'm planning to add little star sprinkles I found on Ethical Superstore that are free-from! Frankie x
