    All my daughter's sophisticated friends LOVED this birthday cake. It
    came wondrously close to the devil's food cake my mother used to make
    from the 1922 Fanny Farmer cookbook--a taste that has remained like
    Proust's madeleine in my memory of all that is wonderful about having a
    birthday. I made it in a Vitamix. I'm sure any blender would do as well,
    or do it by hand.

    4 eggs
    1/2 c. shortening (I used Crisco for the first time in a cake!!)
    1 1/2c. buttermilk or sour milk (for non-dairy: I used 1 1/2 c.
    water plus 3/8 c. soy powder and 2 tsp. cider vinegar)
    1 tsp gf vanilla extract (or use vanilla'd sugar)
    1 1/2 c. sugar (this is too much for my taste; I use about 1 c of
    vanilla sugar, i.e., sugar in which a vanilla bean has been
    basking)
    1/2 c. cocoa
    1 1/2 tsp baking soda
    1/2 tsp baking powder (use 2 tsp if you use non-wheat flour)
    1/2 tsp Xanthan gum
    1/2 tsp salt
    3/4 c. corn starch, 1/4 c. potato starch, 1/3 c.
    each of peanut (or other nut flour) and sweet potato
    flour. (Total of 1 and 2/3 cups flour)

    Place eggs, shortening, buttermilk, vanilla, sugar and cocoa in
    blender. Blend 'til light and fluffy. Stop machine, add other dry
    ingredients, and blend, or mix in a bowl.
    Bake till done (depending on the size and shape of the pan at 350
    in a generously greased and floured pan.
    I used a simple glaze of orange juice and confectioner's sugar.
     
  3. wooo thanks gal!!

    i'll give it a try... i wonder how well the cake will turn out with soy powder.... Mmmmmm

    I was ideally looking for one where i could bake it without substituting for diary products rather than substituting

    i'm getting hungry now... i want choc cake!! LOL
     
  4. I have struggled to find a good, decent dairy-free cheesecake recipe and this (excuse the pun) takes the cake!

    The recipe can be found on this website: http://www.bettaliving.org/Recipes/chocolate_cheesecake.html

    I used a dairy-free caramel flavored choc block and it gave an almost butterscotch flavor. I doubled the recipe too, because it's too good not to go back for seconds! :biggrin:
